I'm worried though that I've been focusing too much on my physical appearance, and risk becoming the very kind of person I have always loathed: a shallow, beauty-obsessed woman. I would really like to concentrate more on things like my music, photography, and work, and not care so much how I look. But my mind is going in circles nowadays, and I feel like I'm in a rut.
Actually I feel like I've been in a rut for months, if not years. So I have to remind myself that I have accomplished some things over the last year, like improving my singing voice since I started taking lessons, learning more about audio and video production, and taking daily exercise. I hope not to write off 2006 as a loss, then, though I always feel like there's more I should have accomplished.
