Hello blog! Just a quick check-in to let you know I survived the holidays. December Sketches, Christmas, New Years, my birthday, Valentine’s, Etc.
I finished the December Sketch-A-Day Challenge and completed 31 sketches for the first year ever! It wore me out, though, and I wasn’t super thrilled with all of my sketches. Well, okay, here’s one that turned out nice.
I’ve also have visitors. Four whole people in December, including my brother and some very dear friends. Two of whom stayed for almost a month.
And then my parents visited, and we went to Cambodia, which was my first time leaving Thailand in a lot of months. Then my parents went to India, and then came back to Bangkok where I met them a week later, so it was like they visited twice.
Oh, and on my birthday I had dinner outside by the river with these lovely people (and the guy taking the photograph, sorry Andrew!). They even got me a CAKE, which was ridiculously sweet. Then, at home, I had a drink out of this glorious unicorn goblet which recently arrive in the mail from Lady Higg.
I’m also writing, when I can. I’ve been wrestling some plot demons, but I think I’ve found a solution—to at least some of the problems. What with preparing final lessons and student grades, picking up an extra class, making travel plans for my last few weeks, and job hunting, it’s been hard to find the time. Did I mention I’ll be home in less than a month? See you soon!

Wow! Look at all those accomplishments! I didn’t realize this was the first time you finished the December sketch-a-day challenge. That’s something to celebrate. I love that picture of you and your parents at Angkor Wat. You may not feel like it at times, but you obviously come from adventurous stock.
I was very happy to see you had fam & friends visit; what a wonderful life experience!
