And So Winds Down Another Year...

A little addendum to yesterday's blog post- yes I am bitter and mad about the situation. However I do have a lot of cherished memories from my three years experience, I have amazing friends that I cherish meeting because of and at that event and I wouldn't trade any of them for anything. Those two things out weigh the anger and frustration. I know my post was probably three shades of rage laced with bitterness, but don't for a second think I regret any of it.

Carrying on... (in the back of my mind I hear Kansas' song lyrics... "My Wayward Son, there'll be peace when you are done...Lay you're weary head to rest, don't you cry no more..." Yes- I love that song. Also- for what it's worth- Gordon Lightfoot is an amazing Canadian Crooner! Don't judge me!)

I make lists. For everything. Grocery lists, to do lists, ideas list, lists of art work commissions... If it requires thought, and let's face facts- my brain isn't exactly the safest place for random thoughts to wander about- I write everything down so I don't get distracted by shiny objects and lose that thought forever.

So- with my penchant for creating lists- I have written down three. I have been working on them for about three weeks now and have finally sat down and typed them up. With a chug of Monster and biting the proverbial bullet (not actually doing that- I have strawberry gum in my mouth instead)- I'm prepared to share them. I don't do resolutions. Those suck. You never carry thru with them and always feel f***ing miserable when you break one. So I write "New Year's Goals" instead. This isn't anything new. I've done this for the past five or so years... Here's two of my three lists... The third of which, the big one- the fun one... Stay tuned for that. I'll probably post that much closer to New Years!!

Most Important One First. It's the shortest of the 3 lists, but each item is more difficult to admit much less accomplish. LIFE GOALS FOR 2017:
