well, here goes nothing...

So, besides the fact that my world has been so topsy-turvy lately, everything has been going pretty well.  I have been making serious progress with my pictures, creating some INCREDIBLE art, and enjoying some amazing new music (i will be posting all of these soon).  But, even though all of these things are great and all, I have been working on ME as well.  I (like a lot of other bloggers i follow) have created lists about things that they want to do this year.  Well, instead of a New Year's Resolution, I made a list of things to do before next year.  I've already started working on these things, but i want to share them with you, to make them more real.  here it goes:

these are in NO particular order:

1. create a painting for my mommy and grandma

2. buy this lens (I NEED IT!!)

3.  buy a bookshelf to house the books for my library

4. buy more 1st edition books

5. deactivate my facebook for a week  
(for me, this was REALLY difficult)

6.  complete a portfolio for people to actually look at, instead of PDF files

7.  frame some of my pictures and hang them on someone's wall

8.  have and educated conversation about something i'm extremely passionate about

9. run ANOTHER 5K, a 10K, and start training for a marathon.

10.  turn off my phone for ONE day and just create.

11. take a spur of the moment road trip

12. visit austin, again.

13. quit smoking before my nephew is born
(this is something i told my sister-in-law i would do)

14. save enough money for a down payment on a jeep

15. take at least 5 pictures a week, edit, and share them with people.

16. have an experience that i will never forget and....

17. ...get another tattoo

18.  see more bands play (anywhere)

19.  go to another professional football game

20.  be happy with myself, who i am, who i have become, and who i can be.

that's totally do-able, right? I think so, I will update the list as I go, I hope that you can share this with me, and motivate me to do what i want.  I am doing this for me, and no one else.  I need this.  It will be fun, and I can't wait!  well, i have to get back to work now, but have a FABULOUS weekend!!!!
