Denting the Universe

Dent in the Universe

It's almost the end of the year, so of course that means it's time for me to start self negotiations as to what is in store for next year and where/who I will end up being after another cycle of 365 days.

Did my morning treadmill run at PF today to silence (as opposed to the enormous amount of reading I have been accomplishing lately while running); I wanted to listen instead. Listen to life; listen to God; listen for reason and meaning.

After graduating with my Bachelor's in October, I have been spreeing after all of the music, movies, comic books, TV and games I have been missing ... and as delightful as it is to finally enjoy so much of these, it hurts too. I have gotten whole days full of entertainment goodness and ended them feeling painfully empty because I haven't felt accomplished. Like probably every other artist being honest with themselves, I am self-centered, needing validation from everyone around me. The endorphins that come along with pride/admiration/fondness fuel my desire to create and without that joyful prompting, the cyclical nature of crafting art/design/etc is broken. aka I haven't been creating, which means I have nothing to be proud of, which means I am not in the mood to create, which means I haven't been creating...

So this is me, forcing myself to make something. Anything. I want to squeeze the last few weeks of December and bleed out all that I can of not just productivity (there's been plenty of that, from a certain point of view... more on that later), but genuine creation. Beyond that, the 2015 plan is to make something big each week. Something good and fun. Most importantly, though, something different every week. I can't exactly place my finger on what I want to spend the rest of my life doing, but I am close and 52 weeks will get me the rest of the way there.

Now let's go break something.

Need to Cogitate There are certain emotions that life evokes, that grab at you hard, in strangling chokes. Ones blatant, and rude and horribly coarse. They are painfully real, fully void of remorse. Sometimes those emotions give way to end, to passing of life and eternal rest. But with love in your life, and side by a friend, You will find you aren't ...

I feel like this is a post I want to make (re: need to make) every couple of months. Last week there was a point at the end of the month where the prevailing phrases I started each day with were "on track" and "collected". Yet, only a few days away from that and I again feel ...
