Well, the last 364 days were weird. I mean, everything since 2016 has just been beyond bizarre, and I’ve just kind of given up on making plans for anything. I mean, anything further than school seems a wee bit presumptuous on my part.
I mean, sure, I’ve got three challenges planned for this year, my goal is to graduate from nursing school by the end of August, and I’m pretty sure I already know where I’m going to work and live. But there is so much wiggle room – is the coronavirus just gonna go crazy and mutate into humanity’s demise? am I going to graduate? what if I change my mind about my living situation? – that I’m just going to take it day by day.
And I’m starting by doing a little 31 day challenge over on Instagram, except instead of my artwork (of which there will be more, I promise) or critiques of my faves, I’m going to do a one-second video each day throughout January. There will probably be some pretty key themes that can give you a glimpse into what my life is like (it’s not exciting or, like, overly entertaining to most people, but hey, it’s mine), but it might also surprise me.
I’m honestly feeling more secure in myself than I ever have in my entire life, and you know what? I am looking forward to recording little videos of my mundane life (especially in January) because I am who I am. I am happy to exist, and if by showing that happiness helps someone else recognize the same happiness that lives within them, then by god, I’m going to do it.
Feel free to join in on this! I’d love to see everybody’s Day in the Life.
Happy New Year!
