The past two months have been rough. I was happier than I had been in a long time, before it all came rubberband-ing back into general misanthropy and malaise. I suppose Dickens had it right all along, but considering that he wasn't talking about the personal life of a 20-something year old, I'd still like to put this out there.
I look happy as a clam after a successful haul of leather for crafting projects (photos/updates to come soon), but in reality I looked and felt like the following for much of the past two weeks. This, by the way, was my Halloween costume, and the fact that I haven't updated about it til now means that this blog has really been on the backburner for far too long.
I thought I had it in me to do a grand overview of 2012, but the truth is that I'm just a little bit too weary and ready to move on to 2013. It's the year of the snake, my 2-year college reunion, and my first visit to Shakespeare & Co. (if my summer plans work out). 2013 will be the year I finish all the books I have on my reading list, the year I finally learn how to bake bread, the year that I start keeping a journal again, and the year that I pare down my possessions so that I can move without breaking a sweat. I say these things every year, and my follow-through rate isn't great, but that doesn't mean I should give up, right?
I also made an appointment for a MAJOR hair change next weekend...stay tuned.
