a post for the last day of the year
here are a few things i just mailed to my niece (gretchen) for her birthday. i made the bracelets and i forgot how much i like doing that! super fun. here's to more bracelets in 2014! and the card includes surprise birthday greeting cameos from her favorite celebrities (because being a vine star=celebrity, this is reality), which i hope will make her smile. i like it as much as the time i wrapped an umbrella in printouts of photos of the jonas brothers for my other niece (katie).
this is the first new year's eve where i haven't felt strongly about going anywhere or doing anything specific or even reviewing the year that has passed. instead, i feel like moving forward. and i don't feel like watching new year's rockin' eve, either...because those musical acts are just really not compelling. there is one act i really want to avoid enough to plan to start watching at about 11:59.
i do have ideas in my mind - lots of them! - for the year ahead. this is uncharacteristic for me as well.
at work, i made a display featuring resolutions and goals that the students made for 2014. i added one as well..."More time for art and more time for sleep". That's the simple way of putting it...general life re-prioritization sounds good, too! Not so much needs to be written into the blog about this. I really do want to make it to the Matisse exhibit at the IMA before it closes, though.
(sorry about the lack of capitalization consistency - it's not a priority here.)
i wish you a safe and happy new year.
