Wow, another year gone. 2016 has been a pretty...unpleasant and unexpected year for most of us. A few of my favorite people have passed away, and so much has happened and changed that I just try to avoid the news now.
The reason I am making this journal, however, is to point out the accomplishments we've made as a society and how we, as a global community, are starting to move forward.
-While diversity on thoughts and actions divided us, we stood together to overcome
-The Olympics further proved that the world is slowly becoming am more equal, accepting place
-Music has connected us all no matter what language you speak
-Lowest child mortality rate in history
-Rapid decline in deaths due to malaria
-Education gap between genders has shrunk
-Better understanding on how to treat cancer (mainly pancreatic)
I understand that this isn't a lot but I did the best research I could with the time I have available.
I hope you guys accomplish your new years resolution(s)!
Some of my new years resolutions I hope to reach this year include:
*Improve on anatomy in my drawings
*Improve on my painting style and learn to paint with watercolors and oil paints
*Finish 24 books
*Try to go outside to hike some more
*Spend a day reading/drawing near a waterfall
*Get another tablet pen (mine broke midway through 2015)
*Focus more on drawing animals
WELP! That's all I have! I hope you all have a fantastic 2017 and that things will brighten up for you if they are gloomy now.
