First off, thank the gods or whatever that 2010 is over. Seriously, it sucked. Probably the worst year of my adult life. It's over. Fin. Done. Good riddance.

2011 is here. I greet it with no idea what will happen & for the first time in my life, no real sense of direction. I always knew what I wanted to be when I grew up, but it hasn't really worked out too well. This is the year I'm going to decide. I am going to do some research on joining the police department, teaching, law, and book illustration. Then, I'm going to commit to one.

I'm going to get in shape, stop drinking caffeine, stop eating so much sugar & cook more.

I'm going to have more me time.

I'm not going to worry about politics or the world. Screw it. Let the people who are able to do something, do it. I need to concentrate on myself right now & stop chasing shadows.

I'm going to learn how to do something new this year. Maybe take the electrician classes at Moore/Norman.

I had so many goals, ideas & enthusiasm for 2010 & instead ended up in physical therapy & doctors offices all year. I was in more pain than I have been my entire life. I slept more than I ever have. The pain was exhausting. I had incredible ups, like finally landing a legit cool place for an art show, & incredible lows, when two days before the show I'm informed they replaced me.

I found out I was allergic to chocolate, cloves, nuts, nutmeg, cinnamon, & the list just keeps getting longer.

That's all over now. It's done & gone & I'm not going to dwell on it. I welcome you, 2011. Let's do this thing. Whatever it is.

I hope each & every one of you has the best year of your life so far.
