I spent the better part of last night downloading new fonts, finding Photoshop brushes and messing around with a few ideas. I didn't make any actual icons yet, but I hope to futz around a bit tonight. I forgot how much I enjoy this kind of stuff, and hours passed before I even realized it.

Now that I have to be up every day around 7am though, I need to be in bed much sooner, but I've always been a night owl. It's been a lifelong struggle to stay on a normal sleep schedule. For me, normal is 4-5 hours a night, sometimes less. As I've gotten older though, this is so not cutting it, and I find I do best when I get at least 7 hours. So, when I finally noticed the time last night, and it was after midnight, I was shocked.

Finally crawled into bed a little after 12:30am, but it always takes me half an hour to an hour to actually fall asleep due to a stupid active mind that never shuts up. Book ideas, icon ideas, work woes, school stresses, all this decides to bombard me when I am lying in bed, ready for sleep. RaWr! By the time I actually fell asleep it was closer to 2am... so no 7 hours last night and I have a feeling it's gonna hit me around 3pm today LOL.

Anyway. I am chipping away at that mammoth book I decided to read first this year. I'm around 256 pages, out of about 622 I believe. I figure if I can read 50ish pages a night, that's pretty good. I may pick up another book while reading this one that is shorter though. I am still trying to decide.

Anyway ... Here is today's question!

What is the best thing about your relationship with your parents? - [personal profile] serys 

I think the fact that I even have a relationship with my parents is quite amazing. I sadly know a lot of people who don’t get along with their parents, or who have sadly lost their parents and maybe never really got to know them or spend time with them. I feel my life has been enriched by knowing them and keeping them such a big part of my life, even into adulthood.

I think the unconditional love is a beautiful gift that I wish more people in this world were able to experience. The trust, the care and the judgment-free sharing of thoughts is always a huge plus. I don’t know how I will be able to get on without them … they are such a huge part in my life—and this I think might be a problem in the future as I am very attached to them and can’t imagine life without them (which might not be the best thing ... but it is. It's a double edged sword).

To set up our Christmas tree and village, but since we’re going away for that week, we never set it up (it just ends up being a lot of work for us not to even enjoy it on Christmas). So we usually set the whole thing up every two years. Yet for some reason, we didn’t do it last year, and I’m trying to remember why but I can’t. Oh well … Here are photos from our 2011 set up.

BUT, here’s what it looks like from the stairs (my view as I come downstairs from my bedroom).

*happy sigh* I guess I can just stare at the pics all day, haha!

In other news, I really am not into this WoW Expansion. I really tried the last two days, but my heart just isn’t in it. So I need a new game to fill my free time. Any ideas? Preferably a ‘no monthly fee’ type of game.

I do think I want to get back into making graphics though (there’s one in this photo set lol) … I remember I used to have a lot of fun making icons and banners, and all sorts of good stuff, but then my computer fritz’d on me, I replaced the hard drive and could not find my photoshop CD (I used elements). I may just use Christmas money to get a new digital copy (never get lost bwahahah) and get back into that.

I also still have that damn book idea floating around in my head but with all the school writing I’ve been doing the last thing I want to do is … write. Sad, I know. I am hoping I can get some done during the break. I’ve written the ideas down, so I’m not too worried about them disappearing, but I’m itching to write but just don’t have the energy for it lol

Anywho …it sleeted last night, but since it turned to rain early enough this morning we didn’t get a work delay, but people are still not here (and it’s been an hour), so it’s very quiet at work lol … Now it’s pouring like crazy out and it’s supposed to be like that the next few days. I love rain, but only when I am home and can doze in and out to it :D
