Happy New Year! It’s currently 1:30 am here in Maryland. This is the first New Years Eve that I spent at home in a long time. Sadly, I was not invited to any festivities. I tried to make the best of the night anyway. I ended up working on an oil pastel drawing that I finished just after midnight.

Speaking of drawings, I want to thank Rossy again for featuring my last drawing, Poison, in one of her blog posts. I am highly critical of my art and don’t think I’m very good. However, all you can really do is practice, and if you’re enjoying yourself then that’s what matters. One of my goals in 2018 is to create more art.

A Decade of Selfies: 2007-2017

523

I got this idea from Hunida’s post. I think it’s so cool to look back at older photos and see how your appearance has changed and progressed. Personally, I don’t think I’ve changed that much, aside from some different hairstyles and questionable makeup choices. I was 18 (turning 19) in 2007, and I am 29 now.  The selfie at the top of this post is my most current one.

Christmas Day: Food & Gifts

511

Every year, my mom always wakes me up super early (between 8 and 9 am). We then open gifts, which takes us at least an hour to open. I have no idea why it takes us so long. Kitty Cameron was sitting with us while we were opening presents, and of course he was observing and sniffing everything. I got him some new treats for Christmas, and he sniffed them out before I even got them open. He gobbled them down, so he must have liked them. This was the first Christmas without kitty Chloe, since she passed away on Halloween. She used to always love playing with the wrapping paper. Cameron, surprisingly, doesn’t do that. However, he does always try to fit himself inside of the bag that we put the torn off wrapping paper in. He did that this year as well, and a piece of paper with some tape on it got stuck to his fur. He noticed right away, so he jumped out and started running around trying to get it off. I was cracking up! Cats are so silly.

Merry Christmas!

It’s now after midnight here, so I guess it’s officially Christmas here where I live. I just wanted to make a quick post to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and I hope your day is well. Hopefully you all get everything you wished for.

The night before Christmas Eve, my mom and I made cookies. Okay, that’s a bit of a stretch. They were just the pre-made Tollhouse cookies that you stick in the oven, and my mom made them. I did put the sprinkles on, but aside from that I was busy watching a show on the ID channel and eating mozzarella sticks and jalapeno poppers.

6 Months of Blogging!

501
I can’t believe it has already been six months since I created this blog! Time sure does fly. I was an active blogger from 2005-2011 until I decided to give it up, and I stayed gone for a solid six years. There were times I contemplated getting back into blogging, and it was something that I thought about quite a bit before creating this one. I was worried I wouldn’t have anything worth writing about though. It was a little different back then. Blogging was more like a journal open to the public. A lot of bloggers, myself included, would blog about every little thing that was happening in our lives. Of course, when you’re a teenager and then transition into your 20’s, there’s a lot more drama and craziness. At least that’s how it was for me. Now that I’m in my late 20’s, my life is pretty much a borefest. I go to work, come home, eat, play with my cat, watch TV shows or movies, go to sleep, repeat.

The TMI Tag

422

I saw this fun questionnaire tag on Bookish-Wanderer and decided to participate as well. It’s just random questions that kind of reminded me of the Myspace bulletin survey’s I used to fill out back in the day.

What are you wearing?
As I always am when I’m at home, I am wearing pajamas. I like to be comfy.

Have you ever been in love?
Yes, only once. It didn’t end on good terms. I have yet to be able to open my heart to anyone else because I don’t want to get hurt again.

7 Days of Black & White

I was challenged by Hunida to participate in the seven day black and white photo challenge. I’ll post the rules below, but I admit to breaking them. I guess I was so excited about seeing everyone’s photos who were doing this that I sort of glossed over the rules. I didn’t even realize at first that it said no people until after I had already done a couple selfies as my photos. Oh well. I’ve never really been one to follow the rules anyhow. Also, I decided to compile all of my photos into one post instead of posting one photo each day.
