Older picture. I’m reading a different book now.

Well, the Christmas decorations are all packed away until next Christmas and I already see my next batch of projects. Some will be digital but there’s also some physical clutter I need to organize because this year I really want to bring things together and make this a viable comic art and video making studio. This includes making a decent workspace and if there’s any “clutter” it’s the creative kind that sparks imagination instead of a mess that sparks apathy.

So the time has come to get back into clutter clearing. I hope to start selling some stuff off finally since the sale page here (not really surprising when you think about it) hasn’t been the solution. I might try eBay again or look into other options. I want to get back to listing comics for sale. I want to reorganize this space I’ve been working on into a better setup. I want to stop saying “I want to” and actually do it. Hopefully 2021 will a boost of a year to my organizing, just like when I started this site. When I began using my blogging to get myself to clean I was doing really well and got a lot done. I can’t say I’ve slacked off over the years but the amount of work that has to go into it definitely started to weigh on me. I knew this would be a long-term project but I don’t think I realized just how big a mess I made for myself in over 40 years. 2016’s medical issues didn’t help and I’m still trying to shake some of that off (like the hernia) but honestly I can’t simply blame the forced time off as the only reason I’ve fallen behind. It just gave me an excuse and it’s time I stopped using it as one now. It’s been five years since the diverticulitis kicked off the hell year (personal hell year, followed in the ranking by 2015 when I lost my mom and last grandparent, and 2020 for the obvious reasons). I think I’ve rested enough and even with being tired lately I need to force myself back on track.

I hope you join me on this journey, if not out of curiosity and cheer me on then to get you thinking about your own clutter-clearing journey. Let’s try to…

Okay, then let’s make 2021 the best year we can and finally get this party back in gear!
