Another Year Over
Welp, the year 2022 is nearly over; it’s just a matter of hours now. So, I guess now is the time for a look back at 2022 and an optimistic look ahead to 2023? Might as well do that. Uhm… I’m not sure where to begin… The year started on a sour note (I lost the chance to be Renderosity’s Artist of the Year) but has ended on a sweet note (I now have Jojo). I’ve had various ups and some serious downs throughout the year. Dad’s memory is still getting worse but he’s here. Mom and I are getting along better than we ever have before. I still have Aayla by my side, and she gets along well with Jojo… or at least she tolerates him well enough and the feeling is mutual. Pixie has become a little pork roll as Dad forgets how often he gives her food and treats but won’t listen when we try to stop him. Pixie is terrified of Jojo and Jojo knows it! Whenever Pixie tries to enter my room, Jojo puffs up and huffs at her which causes her to run like hell. Pixie is the only one he does this to.
What am I looking forward to in 2023? Uhm, what Marvel movies are coming out in 2023? LOL It’s true though. I can hardly wait for Quantumania and the last Guardians of the Galaxy. What else is coming out? Oh, The Marvels, I’m looking forward to that one too. I wasn’t able to get out to the theater to see Wakanda Forever (or Thor Love and Thunder) but I’m looking forward to seeing it on Disney+ when it’s released. Speaking of Disney+, I’m also very much looking forward to the new seasons of the Bad Batch and The Mandalorian! Will Ahsoka be out this year? I hope so!
As for what else to look forward to… Well, I’m mostly hoping everything stays pretty much the same. I don’t like change or surprises anymore. So, if everything stays pretty much exactly the same as it is now, I’ll be happy. I once again, as I have every year since I gained the weight, hope that I lose some more weight. I recently got a Halo View (basically Amazon’s version of the Fitbit) and it has been helping me keep track of various things like number of steps, quality of sleep, and heart rate. Here’s hoping it continues to help me track my health and even more hopefully, helps me to improve my health. One can only hope and try, right?
Let’s see, what else should I write here? I just had a thought of what to write and then it left. Dammit. Oh, I guess I need to come up with a “Best Art of 2022” for My Best Artworks section soon. It will be interesting to see how many artworks I created this year because I don’t think I managed to create too many this past year. Here’s hoping 2023 will be much more productive both for artworks and commercial art projects.
Okay, that’s enough for this year. See you next year!
