2015 Blog Post #14: Keep Moving Forward!

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 17, 2015, 4:23 PM


Well, it happened, I knew it would at some point: I missed an entire week's post. I didn't even get the Bonus Blogs up that I mentioned last time. (But they will go up this coming week so that links can be put into the art descriptions on the various coffee portraits associated with them.) I just feel like I've been slacking quite a lot since ECCC. I mean, aside from needing some time to get over the mysterious delayed onset con crud I seemed to have contracted following the last actual blog post, I've been sluggish and fighting some other mini illness this week as well. I guess this is the price I pay for being social and actually trying to have a little fun when I know I should be working.

It feels like my plate got very full very suddenly and now I'm drowning a bit. Scrambling to keep my head above water and all I want to do is let the water pull me down so that I can hibernate and hide from it all. But I can't do that. I don't want to. Not really. I want to keep moving forward and part of doing that is doing extra posts this coming week. Getting a proper "to-do list" written out with a time line so that I know exactly what I have to do and when I need to get it all done, will help immensely, I'm sure. I'll likely be posting a thing about fundraising for various organizations I volunteer for, especially since I just found out that I'll be working the silent auction at an event during Memorial Day weekend once again. Plus updates on what I'll be doing with my Patreon page should be going up in these last couple of weeks before the official launch on the 30th. (Yikes! That's coming up quick, isn't it?)

On top of that stuff and my monthly goals list, another annual charity art thing is coming up on May 1st, which is coming up just as fast as the 30th. Things are a little crazy in Danielle-Land, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I just want to keep up with my monthly goals because even if they mean nothing to anyone else, they mean something to me. If I can accomplish these things consistently, I know I can do more than I ever thought possible. I know these goals may not necessarily mean much or seem like much at all to anyone else, but they mean something to me. So even if it seems crazy to keep up with these arbitrary goals, I'm going to do my very best to not fall off the wagon with this like I did last year. I'm only a little over a quarter of the way through this year, I refuse to say that I give up, just because I missed a week's blog post. Especially not when that is easily remedied with a little extra work and focus.

In the meantime, the most recent uploads:

I have pretty eclectic tastes when it comes to, well, just about everything...Movies, music, TV, Books, art, etc. I like to try new things and dabble in just about anything. Being creative is just what I love to do.
