Here we are - just different enough from Livejournal to let me relax enough to type. Maybe it's the lack of years of written baggage, maybe the interface is juuust enough different. Either way, attempting to write a first entry here is a great deal more productive than telling bad nacho pun jokes to my cats. 

Grad school has me in its teeth and I sort of completely forgot to celebrate Imbolc, so much like the rest of this celtic year so far I'll be celebrating a week or two later than the "official" date. I have found that slowly grinding towards better habits works well for me, better than grandiose plans, although those can help to frame or set my goals. I've been stretching/doing minor home workout things over the past week or so, I just finished the data collection/artmaking part of my thesis/capstone this weekend and the end is sort of in sight.

I don't know where, literally where, this year will take me, but I want to put in work to improve my skills, maybe even pick up a few new ones, and be a better practitioner spiritually as well. I've been updating my webcomic on the regular too - goals in that direction include continuing to update at least once a week, updating the website design, and promoting it more. I applied to SpiderForest on a whim, which is a collective of comic makers that are pretty talented overall. Even the act of applying feels good, although looking back through all the older art... well, at least it shows how much my artwork has improved!

I want to continue to paint, sculpt, sew, craft, write, garden, do things with will and intention. More on those things as they commence, I guess. The dreaming has been interesting lately - I really need to start writing those down when I wake up, because I forget them as soon as the day begins properly. Anyway, stay tuned to this space, please tell me what's going on with your life this year and what some of your thoughts or goals are. Much love.

I think, she said to herself, that I'll make a place to keep record of my thoughts and experiences in this transitional period of my existence.

I don't use livejournal for that anymore, not really. And while I like paper journals, the most successful ones I've ever kept have been digital. This is a place of self exploration.

I am an illustrator, a writer, a witch stumbling down a path that is decidedly shamanic. I talk to trees and grow tomatoes and eggplants under tiny fluorescent lights. I currently live in a place that reminds me of both Lost Boys and Aladdin. I'm still figuring out where my path is going next.

Do I really want to be in the videogame industry? Is it even possible, since no one ever responds to my resumes? What about comics - is there a future for me there? Teaching? Tattoos? I want badly to travel, to live far away places, and yet I don't want to move even further away from my mother and my dearest friends.

This spring and summer, I suspect, will go far towards sorting out these questions. Hopefully this journal will help.



For now, a list of goals:
x. Figure out how to engineer the potting and structure of a sustainable window garden
x. Become more physically fit
x. cook more of my own food
x. do not shoot self in foot
