Happy New Year!
How fitting is it that this is my 100th blog post? Yep, that's it. Even though I have had a blog for a year and a half, that's my number. But Here's the thing is a sporadic publication remember?
I am so competitive. Even if it is just against me and myself. I always want to win. It was October 30th when I had 42 posts to write to make it here. Myself thought it was a stretch; I said WE could do it. As it got closer, me and myself whined that we would have to write something everyday. So I did. And here we are.
The best thing about 2011 was finding ME. Let me just say Amazing Grace. I was no different than I am right now. I was just wearing me inside out.
For my 100th blog post, which happens to fall on January 1st (I planned it that way), I wanted to answer a few year in review questions. I picked out the ones I didn't have to think too hard to answer.
Was 2011 a good year for you?
What did you do in 2011 that you’d never done before?
I self-published a book!
What date from 2011 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
November 30, 2011 - I clicked YES to approve my final proof. This is my publication date.
What was your biggest achievement of the year?
PUBLISHING The Christopher Chronicles.
What was your biggest failure?
I wouldn't call it a failure but I could have been published months earlier.
Where did most of your money go?
Investing in the business of ME.
What song will always remind you of 2011?
Maya Neiada - Pressha - I had an aha moment.
What do you wish you’d done more of?
Writing, but I did good.
What do you wish you’d done less of?
What did you want and not get?
I wanted a new iPad because Christopher has taken mine over.
What did you want and get?
My iPad. I got it back after Christmas when Christopher had better things to do.
What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
41 - Me, Myself and I stayed up until a few minutes after midnight just because.
What kept you sane?
Writing (it is free therapy) - but I wasn't going insane this year.
Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2011:
Don't wear something too tight in front of a six year old. He or she will surely hurt your feelings. Read more...
How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2011?
Lacking. I'm good for where I live. But I couldn't stroll up in New York or Atlanta without worrying about the fashion police.
Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
I decided to put my trust in you. Oh yesterday, yesterday, I realized that you would bring me through. There ain't nothing too hard for my God, no. Any problems that I have He's greater, greater than them all. So I decided, that I cried my last tear yesterday.
Mary Mary - Yesterday
Here's the thing...now that I have managed my 100th post to fall on New Years Day, I can go back to being sporadic instead of sporadically consistent.
Happy New Year my friends!
