So this is the New Year

It's January 4th, and I'm settling in to 2011, although I can't decide if I'm going to refer to is as "twenty-eleven" or "two thousand eleven" or the very fancy "two thousand AND eleven". Oooh, it's going to be SO surprised.
I think the beginning of the new year is so adorable. All cute and hopeful, and full of energy. I always do the same thing every year. I always feel like THIS year is going to be different. I'm going to make resolutions and keep them, remember people's birthdays, get healthy, stop watching so much "Hoarders" and more "Paranormal Cops". So far, no good.
And here we are.
I started this blog on my birthday in December, with hopes of just having an outlet for little things that I wanted to say for no reason at all. Not promoting my new album (out now;), not announcing shows or tours, not feeling pressure to actually say anything at all. I hoped to actually learn a little something about myself by starting a new little project.
So far I've learned the following:
1. I don't blog very often.
2. I'm not Amelie, no matter how much I wish and try and wish and try
3. I'm really terrible with the computer
4. Uploading things is slower than I wish it would be
5. I'm impatient when things are uploading slowly and I can't be Amelie while I wait

And here we are again. Hopefully by the end of the year, I'll have a better idea as to what the hell I was trying to do with this blog, anyway.
I'm just going to start somewhere. Specifically in my living room, watching a documentary on Pixar on the TV, browsing through Etsy and being delighted by the following prints by a most amazing artist. Wanna see?
This is a super talented artist from Barcelona named Judy Kaufmann. She sounds so Spanish!
i love it.

and I love you.
