Thursday, December 12, 2013


Remember when I first started 52 Stickup?

In all honesty, there's a part of me that sees that as somewhat of a blur.

Like, I came out of a trance, and I saw all these goofy post-it notes, so I decided to keep going.

Will I continue Stickup into the new year? Probably not. The urge for an odd webcomic isn't really on my mind right now.

And it's funny, cause the beginning of Stickup seems like such a far time ago.

Time does things to you.
I think a lot of that has to do with how much time you waste, and what you do with it.

Remember LMFAO? Where are they at right now?

I don't think they've underperformed, but they were everywhere. Now, I can't seem to recall a recent appearance.

The same goes with a lot of music these days.

The way the Internet processes information in this day and age makes the year seem longer than it is.

I think a part of this feeling has a lot to do with growing up in a post-9/11 society. Life was no longer measured in years, but events. Following the war in Afghanistan to Iraq created this new narrative for our lives. It was this haze over everyone's heads that didn't seem to end until the death of Osama bin Laden.

I remember the beginning of 2013 how everyone said that this so called "Fiscal Cliff" would cause chaos and disaster. It bothered me. I had plans.

But, lo and behold, it fizzled out. And even if it was drastic, national issues mean you need to finish your goals faster.

2013 was a good year for me. Had a couple missteps, but they still got me in the right direction.

Will 2014 be the same? I honestly don't know.

Let's see.
