I started 2013 feeling really optimistic and energetic. From there everything rather went downhill. xD
January sucked, with nothing happening and slowly feeling more and more sluggish it kind of set the premise for the year.
There were plenty of ups, but some pretty catastrophic downs too.
I am determined 2014 will not follow suit.
We're 4 days into 2014 already and they've not been too bad.
One thing that I have decided, which is the more out of place part of the title, is I'm going to do a charity skydive this year.
I do volunteer work for the Sue Ryder charity in their shop in town, it's fun working there and the charity is really good. They provide extra care and hospices for people with long-term or life-long illnesses, helping people cope and giving them some extra comfort during their treatment.
Don't ask me where the idea to do SKYDIVING of all things came from, but SkyDiveUK does charity jumps. If I raise £395 minimum in sponsorships they'll do it free, with a minimum of £145 going to the charity.
So that's going to be a thing. xD
Through 2014 I really want to be more active. I spent a decent part of 2013 being depressed, again, particularly after I finished college so I didn't do an awful lot.
I want to get a paying job, be able to go to the SouthFurCamp, see Tenaar (FA) and if I'm incredibly lucky gain a bit of self esteem and confidence.
I'm also planning on setting up some decent prints this year, do some t-shirt designs and make some greetings cards for next christmas. Maybe stickers or some such too.
Basically just make nice things and I am still planning an art book, as well as starting a story & art series based upon a group of characters and their lives.
I think I'm done rambling now, I would like to say thank you to everyone who supported me in 2013 though. Life is tough and unfair, but lovely people such as yourselves and great friends make it all worthwhile.
