Memorial to 2021 Body Paint

As a way of looking back at 2021, I decided I would kick off the year by doing a body painting that’s a combination of some of my most “loved” looks that I did in 2021. There are a total of nine different looks that went into this: deershroom, elf, split lips, butterfly skull, Captain Marvel, Howl Pendragon from Howl’s Moving Castle, Ursula, Cracked Stone Statue, and Ice Cream. I was a little nervous about how this was going to turn out. I wasn’t exactly going off of a reference short of looking at the body paints that I did for each of these looks. But not one with all of them combined, if you don’t know I can’t visualize things in my head. I don’t think in pictures, so sometimes that makes things interesting when I paint, draw, or do body art. So, while I knew what I was combining, I didn’t know what it would look like. So, I was surprised, to say the least with how much I loved the way this turned out.

Reflecting on December 2021 Goals

The month is over and so is 2021! Normally when I revisit goals from the previous month, I go over my goals for the next month. I’m not sure if right now where I’m hoping 2022 to go, so I’m going to hold off on making goals at the moment. I’m just going to live in the moment for the beginning part of the year and see how that goes. I’ll do reflections on the months still going forward on what’s been going on, what I’ve been consuming for entertainment, and whatnot.

Reflecting on November and Goals for December 2021

How is there only one month left in 2021? This year both crawled and flew by at the same time. It was a stressful year for sure. I don’t know if I would consider 2021 better or worse than 2020. But it was definitely something. From almost losing my job to frantically working on getting things transferred to a new company to prevent lights out… it’s been a bit much the last two months. Not to mention there’s been a lot of health issues going on in my family. I’m looking forward to putting this year behind me. Still got one more month to go, but I’m hoping the holidays help lift things up a little.

Reflecting on October and Goals for November 2021

October and my favorite holiday are over. A lot happened in October for me. A good portion of that was stressful. From my dad being put into assisted living and his power of attorney trying to guilt-trip my sister and me to talk to him for the first time in eight years (not going to happen), to listening to our old neighbors complain about squatters that moved into his foreclosed home, to almost losing my job… it’s been a bit much. Not that there weren’t other elements that I loved from this past month. I’ve had a blast being creative, read some great books, and enjoyed playing new games that I saw pieces of before. So, I thought I would reflect on the elements I loved from the last month as well as go over my goals from last month as well as the ones I have for this month.

Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017

I can’t believe in just a few days that it’s going to be 2017. I think most people I’ve talked to would agree with me that they’ll be glad that this year will be finally over. From things going on in their personal life to just things happening around the world. Now I’m not going to set any yearly resolutions because let’s face it I probably won’t keep them so I’ll just keep going with my minor monthly goals. As those have really helped since I started those.
