#Lemmedrawaselfie has its first birthday!
I started this project last year to keep track of how my week panned out, and now I have a whole year of my life in front of me. I thought it would look larger somehow, but sure enough, there are 365 little Meggie's on this poster.
I learned a lot in this project (like I have waaaaay too many clothes, a fact that I amended on day 345). My happiest days were the ones spent with my family and friends, and my worst days were ones spent alone, or the days I spent at my grad school's boot camp (whoops). My good days increased significantly when I started a new relationship, and I had over 200 good days in total. I consider myself a mostly negative person, and suffer from bouts of anxiety and depression, so having a majority of happy days was really surprising to me. But the biggest surprise to me was how small this project looks to me now. That's a whole year on that poster, and it looks so short to me.
In a week or so, this image will be available in poster form. It will also be offered as a zine that will include a bunch of handy graphs where I crunch the data on my year as a whole. Want to know my ratio of happy to sad to menh days? Want to know how much time I spent on the internet? Want to know how much time I spent playing Assassin's Creed? (Answer: none. I don't have a gaming system. But man if I did I would play the crap out of Black Flag...) Chances are, you probably DON'T want to know. But the information is interesting nonetheless!
Thanks for stopping by, stick around for more self indulgent surprises later this week!
