2017 ends in less than 6 hours...
Admittedly I'd like to dress up and drink till midnight but at the moment I feel to gross to finish off one beer. I also feel like there is a tennis ball in my ear. I want to listen to my mum's Beatles record of love songs but I wont be able to hear it so there's no point.
I wouldn't normally reflect like this on anything but I wanted to take a few minutes to write about 2017.
2017 has been different, it's been good, interesting, inspiring and something else. I've had a great year for meeting new people and working with new people. I feel privileged to know the people I know and to learn from them. Next year the first half will be my last months in my 20's, the rest will be... older. Not exactly where student Sophie thought she'd be down the line.
As always I'll keep making art and try to post more on social media such as the F's, T's & I's of the online world. I'll also question if it's worth it, if I should just pack it in, take some time off, jump off a cliff and earn some money because that's what most people value you you on. Money, how much you earn what you own. Do you sell your art? I'll also realise that this is what I do and I doubt I'll change or stop but make more art.
HAPPY NEW YEAR to anyone & everyone
embrace the loser within you, if you don't who else will!
Sophie Gibson, 2017
