Highlights included getting to see The Hobbit. I don't actually remember the last time I saw a movie in a theater. It was awesome, reminded me of my childhood from where my dad read me the books and I would watch the cartoons on the amazingly old VHS player (that I am pretty sure my dad still has) and sing along to the songs with my animated friends. Also, I made my dad a Sockthulhu which is a Cthulhu done in the style of a sock monkey. Probably the most awesome present I gave anyone this Christmas. Dad thinks I should sell them, maybe I'll work on that later this year. I ended up making three, two prototypes to make sure I knew what I was doing before the final one that I gave to Dad. The Good Golly Svengali show was a lot of fun, they opened so it was a short set but lots of fun. We ended up at a friend's house for an impromptu holiday party. It was a great time and I got to see lots of people I hadn't gotten to hang out with for a while for a lot of silliness!

Jan 1st I spent alternating between being lazy and productive so that's a good sign for 2013. I'm a fan of balance. I've been asked a few times about resolutions...I have mixed feelings about resolutions. People usually pick goals they can't achieve because they're unrealistic. There will be no I will work out 5 days a week as that's unrealistic. I go back to lyra next week and am going to try to do my yoga DVD once a week. I'd like to do one photo shoot a month to help build my portfolio. There are some burlesque fests I would like to at least apply to since I missed a bunch of application deadlines last year and had to resign from a bunch due to Stage Managing Dracula. So nothing overly stressing or unattainable and fairly realistic and if it doesn't happen because I get super busy and other things come up, that's fine too. Things happen and who knows, maybe something much cooler will come up then anything I had planned. That's what happened with Dracula and that was amazing!
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and I hope that your 2013 is amazing!
