I decided that I needed to create a new look for myself this year. After 2 solid years of changing my hair all colors of the rainbow I didn’t know what I wanted to do with it next. I was a little disenchanted with the colors and had done pretty much every color I desired. It was time to go back to my gothy roots. It was time to go back to black! I got a funky fun cut to go along with it and so far I love it. I really enjoy wearing it in little bouncy evil pigtails. I’m also excited that I will be able to cosplay Selene from Underworld without the need of a wig. A new year is a fresh start, a way to start from scratch, build anew. I will be working on myself, bettering myself, caring for others, becoming more bold, and resisting the urge to hold back. I plan on bettering my business this year as well. 2011 was a year of unsettling unrest both with myself and my life. It did not bode well for my creativity. I made lists before the end of 2011 that I hung on my wall. Lists of goals both small and big, short term and long term, for myself and Gothcupcake. I’m excited to implement my new strategies and create what I hope will be a successful business plan that will more realistically fit in with my creative purpose and need for constant change in life. A new day job has helped make life a little less of a struggle thus far, and has made life less stressful, which gives me energy for creative thinking and activity. My parents gifted me a “sketch-a-day” journal which I have been steadily doodling in daily. It will help keep the creative muscles flexing. I had a customer say to me the other day “You are young…change the world.”
Here’s to changing the world!
