happy new year!

January 2014 took long enough! I can’t believe it’s only been a month and a half since the new year rolled in. It feels as though I’ve been crawling through 2014 for months now when it hasn’t even been a hundred days.


I’m trying my best to be chipper about the whole thing because January actually brought me a lot of firsts. And while I’m thankful that I have survived needless drama during that time, my brain needs a major reboot because it’s been sending meltdown signals.


Or maybe because it’s that time of the year. You know. Hearts. Ugh.


Anyway, I’m trying something new. I came across the blog of Chinie Hidalgo Diaz, poetess extraordinaire of the Blair Bitch Project. (Pardon me for the word but that’s really the title of the series.) It’s been a decade since I last read her work and stumbling upon her blog (and twitter and facebook) revived something in me. I remember pledging that when I grow up, I will be as cool as her. Because she is just so fab!


She tweeted me on Sunday, which super made my day. :)) Fangirl feels!


So now, I’m inspired to doodle my life away just as she does now. If I could only pry the ipad off my little brother’s hand, I think I’m all set. Meantime, hello MS Paint/old school pad and pen! We meet again.
