creativity  
2005 has been rather productive & creative so far; i've spent the weekend working on various projects, writing writing writing, updating on deviantart, putting packages together. i've decided that i have to do at least one creative thing each day - whether it's write something (no matter how little i have to say; just the action of writing is sometimes the hardest first step to overcome - after that, my pen/keyboard seems to take a life of it's own), take a decent photo (or try to anyway), make something (jewellery or something else i want to try this year, like soap & candles), work on a zine, make a scrapbook page, add things to my art journal, even try to draw something (even though my drawing skills are pitiful, it's why i didn't continue with high school art). sometimes i have so many ideas and inspirations but to actually do those things is a whole other process. i need to stop being lazy, and just get on with it. so far it's working out pretty well; i've done more things this long weekend than i have in... well okay, i suppose it's been a bit of a creative month, with christmas and all; but before then, i was slack slack slack, and i don't want to continue like that.

but it's back to work tomorrow; we'll see how well the resolution lasts then. although i've taken to writing letters in the staffroom during my lunch break; sometimes it's the only creativity i have during the 9 hours i'm there, and it's the one thing that gets me through. words really are my saving grace, you know?

although with that being said, i don't really have a whole lot more to say for now. ha.

I think you -should- try to keep with this resolution because it's not a "Okay, I'm going to lose 30 pounds" kind of resolution but it's doing something for yourself and yourself only. Everyone should take some time out of th day for themselves-- so I hope you do.♥.

you can, and you will. <3 it might not be everyday, but it will happen, habits and hobbies take time to cultivate.

i'm not worried so long as i know we've got each others backs!

winter is such a good time for this - i realize, it's your summer- but still, may the sunshine inspire you as you inspire me, daily, m'dear! i'm glad you mentioned candle-making too, this is a craft i'd like to get back to. i hope your birthday candle burned ok!
