So 2014 is almost in the books, and I am not a great blogger.  Since starting this blog back in 2010 I feel that I have been a below average blogger.  And really this blog is for me so why can't I seem to get it together and get it on track?  That is my big question to myself.  To kind of answer this I am not giving myself and my art work the respect we deserve.  I am awful at scheduling for myself and my interests.  So I am challenging myself to to make one post a month for the whole year of 2015.  Each post needs to be more than a picture.  I am going to schedule myself some time to sit down with distractions turned off and give myself the respect I deserve.  I need to do this it will help me with the things I am interested in, I challenge myself to post a picture of something that I find interesting, a picture of a completed or in progress art work, to write a short paragraph of whats new in my life or what is happening that is exciting, anything that I would like to change and why.  With this I would like to visit or spend time with others as well not all the time since I am kind of a home body once I get home take of the shoes and eat some food.  I once or twice a month thing, and it can be different people each month or the same but get out  there see shit make friend or reacquaint with old ones.  I already know of some new things that will be happening this coming year some sad and some exciting many both.  I hope to share them as they come along here. 

So the Season is the Holidays and I am not much of a Holidays kind of person.  I think it gets me down for some reason and I'm not really sure why.  Oh there is the not seeing my family and I come from a family that likes to get together and party for any reason but all I have to do is go visit and that can happen.  It could be not seeing my niece and nephew I remember all the fun I had as a kid this time of year, but really they are still pretty young so what will they remember I don't remember to much form when I was there ages.  I do know that working part time a Home Depot during this time of year is not helping it is just another way for me to be stuck in the greediness of  The United States of America, cause really who the hell really does that much holiday shopping at a big box home repair store (sad face).  Add to it that holiday music (mostly Christmas) has been playing since Thanksgiving and Christmas decorations have been for sale since Halloween.  It just makes me sad.
