Happy New Year!  
Did 2011 start up with that fresh new year feel everyone tends to yearn for? The new beginning? The clean slate?

It sure didn't for me! New Year's always feels weird to me, like any normal day.. Not to mention my mom's attitude was in the pits, so it wasn't great. ^^;

I wrote a resolution for this year and pulled out last year's to compare. It's a tradition my sister and I have started doing two years ago.

So here's what my 2010 resolution said..
-Keep up w/ daily exercises (hopefully)
-Learn katakana + more JPN vocabulary
-Transfer to a 4 year university + finish up vital courses
-Improve in digital painting.
-Work w/ more traditional art
-Do well in classes!
-Work a little on personal page!
-Take more commissions; improve + raise prices
-Get better at drawing animals (and people!)
-Subtitle more videos!

Looking at this, surprisingly, I think I nailed a good number of them, though the exercises, personal page, and doing well in classes are questionable! Exercises went well.. until summer. Personal page didn't go anywhere, though my dA, LJ, and other sites and blogs sort of did. As for classes.. They got harder, so I don't know if I can keep up! What's "well" anymore?

Actually, the katakana bit is.. I mean, I studied it, but I can't recognize it very well. In regards to commissions, I guess I did improve, but I didn't try selling art again ><"

Wow, I don't know what to say. I did a lot of these, so I think I can feel proud of myself? Gosh, I hope my new list isn't too impossible! I'm debating whether or not to share the new list, since I totally did not look at my 2010 resolution at all after writing it until now, so.. The element of surprise is quite nice.

I do know, however, that I hope to post a bit more on my LJ. I'm quite inspired by [livejournal.com profile] avodkabottle 's regular LJ postings with art and updates on her life and felt.. I should do the same, too. ^^; Let's see how that goes.

I was going to put up some art, but I have to get to bed soon. Hahah..

Entry before bed  
I have to make this quick 'cause it's bedtime, so I can definitely be blunt. XD

Today was also a good day. I watched D+R '09 on TV, worked on a mechanical turtle and was hit with an epiphany for an idea for an electric motor I had to build for my physics project. Nothing particularly outstanding happened today, but it was still good! I learned a lot about physics within the time span! And here I thought setting time to watch Dance and Rock would be a total waste of time in terms of self-productivity.

Sorry for spamming the f-lists, but I don't think it hurts to make an entry where I can just say that things are going swell. After all, I wouldn't mind if you guys did. I always hope things are going swell for everyone, but of course that doesn't always happen. So even if it's short and sweet, I can still be glad for everyone.

Good night. ^^
