I’ll be honest, today was exhausting. It’s almost 11 p.m. and I’ve only been home for about an hour. As I sat down to consider what I might throw together to fulfill my goal of making something everyday, I realized I just didn’t have it in me to make another papery mess to have to clean up. Then I starting thinking back over this forever long day to see if I could mine any of my regularly scheduled programming for acts of creativity to share. It seemed like cheating, but then again, maybe the writing itself could serve as the medium in a creative non-fiction sort of way. And that’s when I had the terrible idea to entitle this post, “Today I Made a Difference!” and to tell you about my heroic feats in the trenches with today’s youth. I decided to spare us all from that narrative. You’re welcome.

The next bad idea I had was that I could post another video of somebody else’s creativity. Again. I made several videos today of other people doing awesome things.  I nixed that idea too.

Finally, I decided to draw you a picture. When I picked up my journal — not the Ukrainian journal, but the dot journal (it’s a new thing I’m trying, roll with it) I discovered two stupid pictures I drew of myself the other day when I stayed in bed sick and then went to the Little Clinic.  I didn’t remember drawing this until I saw it and it made me laugh.

Sick Me

That’s what you’re getting today. And since I have a couple minutes to spare, here’s the some of the “difference” I made at work with today’s youth…
