Funny how I slept really well last night. Probably the best I have in weeks, even though I didn't get home until something like 5AM and I only slept until 11:15 so I could get up and go to werk. It was a good night, I had fun. It's good to get out and do my own thing, enjoy my life, get the hell out of the house. I think I should do it more often, and as a matter of fact, I think I will. Maybe there's some room for museum hopping in the near future, or walking in the woods sometime soon, maybe an art festival or two, someplace I can go and be inspired, something I can do to feel fulfilled. Oddly enough, and those of you who know me relatively well will be kind of confused if not terrified, but I think I'm gonna pick up my sketchbook and pencils again. I was flipping through Piro's Artwork, from the gentleman responsible for MegaTokyo, one of my favorite comic strips, and it's kind of made me want to pick up pen and paper and start drawing again...try and get back to the point where I was a few years ago when I was still a good artist. I think I need more releases..maybe I'll find some time for a nice book or something.

So things are looking up, maybe it was just a really soft night's sleep, for what I got, maybe it was just thinking things through and understanding where I am and where I stand, what I want and what I's clearer than sometimes the drama allows you to realize. So I'm gonna have fun and be young and do my thing, and if you'd like to join me then drop me a line! Heh...but in the midst of all of it, I'd still like a little time to myself, hey, I gotta be introspective sometime, if not I'll turn out like a fratboy, and that's not acceptable.

I'm still thinking about going to Buzz this weekend, I know that anytime feelgood and scott henry get together it's bound to be a good time, but I don't know what's going on this friday anyway, and if I'd wind up going again. Hell, at least I get paid this weekend, so I can run around and have a good time with some dough in my pocket...after paying my bills, of course. In the meantime, I think I'll do some websurfing for some more amusing personal sites and weblogs, hey, you never know, Nova always grows, always changes, I might turn Millennium Winter into a blog...if you haven't noticed, I played with the thoughts pages a little bit to make them prettier, I hope you like them.

Which brings to mind whether I'm really doing all this for you or for me...I like to think it's a combination of the two, but hey. I do it for me, but I hope you like it. How's that for a comprimise?
