I've always taken a snail's pace in life...
...staring in wide-eyed fascination at: nature, the coming of ages, life. Taking in the effusive scenery around me, I was comfortable in my humbly-critical observations.
Then 2011 came along. I took the legal leap, and married my longtime love. My then new Etsy shop started picking up a bit. Learned that being self-employed is not as easy--or as hard, for that matter--as I had initially anticipated. Reinvested in, and became more comfortable, with my creativity; blurred the formative line between art and consumerism. Got healthier. Went through a creative process...if you know what I mean. Got frustrated. Oh, the process.
I know that in an earlier post I said that I didn't believe in making New Year's resolutions. However, after a few days of agonizing over this prospect, I realized that there is definitely something that I need to complete in 2012: I have to finish graduate school. I am so close to finishing--I can't back away now. And that is why this New Year's resolution-fearing woman has decided to right herself on up and take this challenge full on.
