I'm a little disappointed in myself. As opposed to pretending I have an audience, I choose to blog/vlog for my own personal amusement... but still. Both of these creative outlets have been lacking love lately, and I wish that the reason could be that I am just too busy with my wild and exciting life to record my antics on the internet. Sadly, the true culprit is a lack of adventures to report.
Don't get me wrong; I'm not complaining. My January of 2011 was fairly spectacular, in a relaxing-and-uneventful sort of way. A lot of projects popped up in my life, and I am sure as they progress I will have a lot more thrilling thoughts and memories that I won't be able to help but share. However, beginnings tend to be somewhat slow, and this year was no exception. Here is a quick synopsis of my month, in bullet point form:
- My collab channel on YouTube kicked off on the first week of the year. Though we are still figuring out the dynamics of our project, I have high hopes for it. We are just getting to know each other, but as we figure out each other's boundaries I definitely foresee the creativity level of our themes and videos increasing. Mostly, it's just incredibly fun. :D Despite wanting to shirk my responsibility the past couple of Tuesdays, I managed to push through my laziness and upload. I am so proud of that newly discovered perseverance.
- I have a newfound love for science fiction television series. For years now, I have had a slight addiction to purchasing the seasons of my favorite shows and re-watching them. These included Friends, Gilmore Girls, and Charmed. Though the latter falls into the scifi category, mostly I adored realistic sitcoms that I found witty. Now, I have become obsessed with Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Smallville. My instant watch queue on Netflix is overflowing with other reportedly amazing science fiction shows that are just begging to peak my interest.
- I have adorned my white collar, joining the ranks of the employed. It isn't the most exciting job in the world considering it falls under the title of "data entry", but it pays well. I always appreciate the safety net of an income, allowing my constant worry of running out of gas money to diminish. It is a wonderful (albeit dull) development in my life. (:
- As I already stated in a previous entry, I am taking piano lessons. In an effort to avoid redundancy, I'll just say that it is amazing to explore a whole different side of myself. I am not musically gifted by any means, but I have never really delved into this type of expression before.
Like I said, this past month has been relatively uneventful. Though it might not seem like much on paper (or, you know, on blogger), it has also been completely excellent in every way. I hope things pick up and become a bit more exhilarating throughout the year, but a slow start never hurt anyone. Overall, I am perfectly content. :D
