Well, I've neglected this for almost a year, which is unforgivable considering the number of writing experiments I've done on the page. I'm going to update every day now. It may be trivial but an update is an update. I'll do my best to find at least one thing every day that I feel will be worth seeing. Maybe I'll even better myself through this exercise.

This morning my dad bought me 55 dollars worth of art supplies. It was very kind of him, I really needed them, and I hadn't even considered that they would cost that much. Charcoals, Conte Crayons... large sketchpads, fixative spray, etc. All of them are on the list of things I need for my drawing I class, and I'm not really in a financial spot to pay for it all. My technical skill has always, I feel, been my biggest failing in my artistic expression. Dad, if you ever read this, thank you very much and I love you.

I've also been reading The Forever Hero by L.E. Modesitt Jr. He wrote the Magic of Recluse series and so I have to give his sci-fi a try, as the Recluse books are some of the best books I have ever read and rise up to the level of the Lord of the Rings. Perhaps higher, at the very least they were wildly original. So, now I have to try his sci-fi. So far I am enjoying it greatly.

For today, I found out there is a transatlantic tunnel that has taken over sixty years to build that will be run by a maglev train between the US and the UK. Readuing about it has made me feel rather small in comparison and has given me a new respect for some presidents .

That's all I really have to say for today, so I will bow out with a quote.

"In 1969, as Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon, Lyndon B. Johnson became the first American President to walk underneath the Atlantic Ocean. "
