2012 -- The World Doesn't End Now

I like the "Choose random icon" option on DW. It saves me from having to choose one for each entry. I have trouble deciding, because I love all my icons!

But I like this one a lot. I actually made it during my first forays into icon making, which must've been somewhere around 2003-2004? I think I started doing it right before university. I know I did plenty in university, because Cait and I learned how to make brushes in PhotoshopElements together. The crystal ball was actually a brush I made from a picture, and then colorized.

I miss icon making, but I can't afford to invest in Photoshop without a good reason, and icon making doesn't really count. I don't do enough to be considered prolific, or even make more than one or two sets a year.

Anyway. Hung out with [profile] rin_kali on Friday night, had a nice dinner and conversation, then went to my friend's house and hung out there for a while and [profile] rin_kali got to hold the new baby.

Then, as stated, did nothing in particular for New Year's Eve. Relaxed, listened to my book, played games, and went to bed shortly after midnight.

Yesterday was also a quiet day, then went to [profile] musesrealm's mom's house for traditional black-eyed peas and greens, with lots of cornbread, crackers, and cheesecake for dessert. Twas quite yummy, but [profile] musesrealm was missed.

This year will bring many changes for me. I'm hoping to move out with my friend Jewels in March. After this month I will have my car paid off (yay!), and have to see about getting insurance of my own for the first time (eek). My library will be changing daily until about June when construction is supposed to be done, so I'll be dealing with a lot of change at work. My sister-cousin is getting married, also in June, and I still need to get a dress for it and figure out how at least my mom and I are traveling. Toward the end of the year is Sirens, which is taking place just outside of Portland, OR, this year, so more travel expenses are in store there.

Not gonna lie: when I think about things changing, it makes me excited and anxious at the same time.

Time to take a deep breath and jump in!

I love making icons! :D

I know what you mean about being excited and anxious all at the same time when you think about all the change coming. I'm feeling the same way myself. It looks to be a big year! I have high hopes for both of us!

"Every single night the same arrangement I go out and fight the fight..."

Damn you! I so did not need to have that stuck in my head at work!
