Like chain-mail with ASCII art was to AOL in 1999, lists of somethings-a-day are to all the social networking sites of today. We’re all guilty of it. Pinterest. A pin a day. Tumblr. A reblog a day. Instagram. A photo a day.
And, we’ve all tried. Most have failed. I certainly have. Especially at this:
Well, atleast at the ASCII part [ch-chiinng!]. Too much? [And total cred to Creative Studios…never in a million years could I make ASCII art like…that.]
But, in all seriousness, it’s nice to be able to do a list of something a day and check it off. Especially if you live an abnormal life of no consistency and want to feel better about the small successes.
So, I am wanting to start a something-a-day for my life. And not necessarily an internet something-a-day, but something that sparks creativity for me. Tina has her nails and cats. Bailey has the entirety of NYC, and Katlyn has marriage and the baby M. So perhaps I’ll start a Julie Powell thing…only, much lessy whiny.
I suppose I just need to find direction as I move towards that large apple of a city in the sky [not Heaven]. So..what’ll it be? A Sketch-a-Day…Recipe-a-Day…Watercolor Painting-a-Day…Spanish Word-a-Day…ehh…Break a plate-a-Day…Ride a rollercoaster-a-Day…Buy a plane ticket-a-Day…I shall keep you all updated with the thrilling details!
I’m hoping it will take over all the social networks.
