2009 Scrapbook  
Happy 2009! In an attempt to document it online, I joined up at 2009_scrapbook. I want to remember the good stuff, even my love of things that has carried over into the new year. *cough*AmericanIdol*cough* My scrapbook is in purple. No one who knows me should be surprised by that.




Resolutions
In this new year, 2009, I resolve to... 01. ...eat better.
02. ...write!
03. ...get back into graphic making.
04. ...actually tag my journal entries.
05. ...finally put up new layouts at zac_graphics and my graphics journal.
06. ...not let the students freak me out when I start my student teaching internship.


Icons
Feat.: Patrick Stump
Maker: Me

Matches the layout I'm using to enter 2009 with...includes a quotation from Pete Wentz.
Feat.: Winnie the Pooh

Made it for a recent layout and kept it as my default. The text was screaming to be used.
Feat.: Matt Nathanson
Maker: Me

Goes with the brand new layout. Matt is my favorite current music artist.


Layouts
2009 - present
Feat.: Patrick Stump
Code: street_of_mercy

It was only a matter of time before it was only Patrick on my LJ. I had a full FOB one earlier, but I forgot to screenshot it (could probably dig it up and post it), and then I had a Jon McLaughlin one prior to this (should dig that up too).
2009
Feat.: Luna
Code: passing_girl

I thought this was such a cute layout. Luna is probably my favorite character from Sailor Moon. Yes, she is a talking cat.
Dec. 31, 2008 - present
Feat.: Matt Nathanson
Code: refuted

My favorite current musical artist. It was only a matter of time before I used him in a layout. I love how simple it looks.

Memorable Quotes
"What do I know, at 29? I know that 'things' are what we seek, but 'love' is beneath that. If 'love' isn't the foundation- then 'things' will fall. For even if they stand- they mean nothing. I've had both- and if given a chance to choose...
Soberly- I choose love.
Humbly- I choose love.
Wisely- I choose love."

I thought so too. Now if I can remember to update it every so often, it'll be a nice little page, haha.

Thanks. :)
