Diary of Jane #7

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 1, 2013, 3:51 PM
This journal will be slightly different from the usual Diary of Jane, let's say it's my New Year's Special (:

I had a wonderful dinner, but He wasn't there yet. I wasn't feeling lonely, watching a fairy tale put me in a good mood. After I finished, nervosity came over me - where is He, I'm sleepy but wouldn't want to miss Him. I prepared drinks, put my best clothes and perfume on, just for Him, than I sat near the Christmas tree, eyes hurting, hardly resisting sleep. Finally than, He arrived - New Year was there, awaiting me to throw myself around His neck. But I loved the old one too, the one I finally came to know completely in that very second. I kissed him goodbye, assuring myself I'll never forget Him.

2012 was an important year of my personal and professional life; I painted 167 watercolor pieces, 17 graphite/charcoal drawings, 9 acrylic paintings on canvas, made 12 tutorials here on DeviantArt. I've gained over 5300 watchers since February and nearly 2000 on Facebook since April. My big dreams by the beginning of 2012 - getting a Daily Deviation, making a speed painting video and have a live exhibition - have all come true, I got two Daily Deviations, made 5 speed painting videos and had an exhibition in May. I've also grown very fond of DeviantArt, I've incorporated it into my daily routines and at the end of the day I often find myself thinking of the idea of community and how beautifully it works - it is a mirror, you always see your reflection in it.

I've also changed the color of my hair last year, from my natural ginger to black. I intend to keep it black until a completely new era of my life arrives and I would feel black no longer speaks for me.

Happy New Year 2013 everyone! Regarding resolutions, remember that what you wish to change, you can change any today of the year, no matter what number stands in your calendar (:

I was under the impression i read this already; it seems i haven't.
I don't miss 2012, the pain and unhappiness led me to wish for it to be over sooner so i could start fresh, leaving behind the memory of the people that caused all the drama in my life.

On the other hand, my life on dA is getting better and better, meeting new people, carrying on my work and making friends - like you. 2012 seems to have been a good professional year for you and for that i can only be glad and wish you that 2013 will be at least as good as the last one was. :hug:

I am sorry for the pain and unpleasant memories that connect with your 2012. On the other hand, holding on the old wisdom "what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger" (gosh how much that is true), you can perceive 2012 as a year that made you stronger - you are a fighter, from what I know about you.

Thank you for your genuine wishes, too. I want to get stronger as well, so I'll get my sword and a shield and 2013 can come to get me ^^
