Hello again everyone, and Happy New Year!
What did everyone do with their New Year?
The theatre that I work at had a party, so I ended up spending the night dancing and eating with some of my favorite people!
There was a crafts table that I was running for any kids that happened to come to the party (I was meant to keep them occupied and give them a fun thing to do while their parents made merry.) Well, can you guess how that went? Eh, I'll just tell you. Only two kiddos came and I ended up sitting at the craft table just crafting away on my own the majority of the evening because I was enjoying myself so much! But I made some fun little things that make me happy to look at.
At the beginning of the night I didn't feel like dressing up, but I finally felt inspired and donned a strapless little black dress that I covered with a large purple fuzzy overcoat. I started to feel so groovy and goofy and ready to bring in the new year and say "see ya!" to the old one. The only thing that could make it better was remembering the giant purple sparkly bow headband that someone gave me at a Miley Cyrus/Flaming Lips concert. So, that was the ensemble! Sometimes dressing in a fun way makes me feel that life IS just as fun and silly as I imagine it to be. I've got to remember that while lots of people may act like things are so serious and that people are meant to compose themselves a certain way, I don't have to follow these rules or beliefs at all. I can see them, smile, and know that I am going to bed at night knowing that the smile I have is a real one.
I have a few resolutions, too!
1. Complain Less
2. Say No More Often
(the second one is becasue I feel like I often over commit myself, and I want to start doing things that I am more passionate about. I'm sure you understand, right ol chap? )
Anywho, dear reader, I hope 2017 brings barrels of good books, laughter with friends AND strangers, awkward eye contact, and food to fill your guts and dreams.
