Being sick kinda sets a damper on the "YES. I WILL CONQUER EVERYTHING" feeling at the beginning of the year.
Mostly, I've been writing furiously in moleskines at random, watching movies, drinking tea, and clutching my new panda pillow pet. ♥ (I have been pining for a pillow pet ever since they came out. And I feel like pillow pets were born to be pandas).
But today, I'm finally kicking this bug enough that I am definitely starting to get into the "CONQUER THE WORLD" mood. :)
I found out that my moleskine planner has stickers. Which is going to make 2012 way awesome.
five-year journal--it has a question a day, and five different spots for your answer, for five different years. Super cool, since you can catch up easily if you get behind, it only takes a couple minutes a day, and you'll be able to see how your answers have changed.
awesome song for the beginning of the new year: Start Over.
there's so much, so much left to gain,
there's so much, so much to lose,
you'll never know until you make a move.
It's easy to just get caught in a rut, and we shouldn't be afraid to step out and make some changes. It's not pointless, it's not hopeless, it's not silly. Any day is a perfect day to start over.
I put together a quick video of the partyings over the weekend. Foosball, games, Tarzan, and on my part, occasional curling up incoherently with my pillow pet. Not fun to be sick during a party. Plus, my voice was gone for pretty much the whole time, which is very inconvenient in a group of people in which yelling is pretty much the communication style of choice. ;)
