Hey internet people! I decided to write a post today, because it's been almost a year since I started this blog and I didn't want to let the year end without coming back to say, "I'm still here!"
As for many people, this year has been difficult for me, but I'm still moving along and trying to make the best of things. Lately I've been feeling like I should make more of an effort to be present. Present for my family, present for my friends, and present for myself. It's so easy to get caught up in the daily routines of life. If you're not taking the time to connect with the people you love, what's the point?
So, in effort to be more present for my friends and maybe even for those I haven't met yet, I decided to open a Discord community! The DofDD Community will be open for anyone who wants to join and share their thoughts and interests, and get to know each other. Feel free to drop in and chat, share a meme or two, post your art, or just hang out in a voice channel.
I've also been spending my time working on a few projects here and there. A while back my dad bought me a book on Ruby, a general-purpose open source programming language, and I took some time to read through it and start learning. I'll be posting about how that's been going soon. I've also been taking time to make some polymer clay crafts! Starting in January, I'll be posting some of my handmade treasures for sale in the shop, so keep an eye out! Some of my pieces will also be featured in YouTube tutorials, so you can follow along and make something of your own.
I hope for a better year for all of us in 2022, and I hope to see some of you around in the Discord, on YouTube, or wherever!
