Wait for it

Hopefully, my patience is paying off. Sometimes I feel like I put up with a lot of crap. But because I do, kharma or whatever it is repays me. Not that I believe there is a divine force handing out cookies or something. I think that if you try hard to be a decent person, good opportunities will present themselves. If you're an ass, than no one will want to be bothered with you.

Maybe this year will bring those opportunities. Some parts of my life have reached resolution. Other parts didn't exist until this past year. And I've been feeling really good about all of it.

I signed up to take a web development course at work. I didn't want to give up my time, but after thinking about it for a bit. I realized I can now use that time to create the website I have been talking about for the past 8 months. I have also been thinking about creating a childrens book for my niece. Here's a link to the story I want to base it on. Its a Grimm's fairy tale called "The Wolf and the Seven Kids". The story says they're goats, but my Grandmother used to tell us her own version of the story, and I believe that they were rabbits. I'll have to ask my sister and brother about it. The idea of writing a book based on the story my grandmother used to tell is a really cool idea. Especially, since I want to give it to my niece. It will be like handing down a bit of our heritage. Plus, I am going to illustrate it. The hard part for me is the writing, and that will already be pretty well fleshed out.

Here are some existing illustrations I found online-
