Hello hello hello everyone! It seems to have become my style to only post a journal every six months or so so I may as well start keeping with the tradition! If anyone is curious as to why I post journals so infrequently it's mostly because I don't really have anything to say other than "sorry I'm not posting more art". At some point a few years ago I decided that I didn't like posting personal updates about something shitty that had happened or something and in doing that it rather limited my journal use to silly memes and the occasional shout out that I'm not dead.
BUT IN OTHER NEWS here is a 2014 review! Because these are fun and why not! Taken from tumblr~ 1:
What did you do in 2014 that you’d never done before?
Hmm let's see... Lots of stuff! I directed two short films and produced a third for my film class, and that was very enjoyable!
And I started making smoothies and they are amazingly delicious~
Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
