365 Project Update

Posted by annagrace under About

Hi friends and followers! At this point I’m so far behind on posts that I don’t even want to think about it… You may be wondering what’s up. Well, to put it simply, last semester was a health nightmare for me! To give a bit more detail, I had several bad Rheumatoid Arthritis flare ups throughout the semester, some of which I mentioned already, but not every little flare up. Then I had a bad sinus infection just before Thanksgiving, then, three weeks before Christmas, I started to have really bad stomach pain. A week and three doctors later, they finally discovered that my gallbladder was inflamed and I had gall stones. So after a consultation with a surgeon, we decided it was necessary to have my gallbladder removed. SO I had surgery on the 20th of December and am still in recovery, but doing much, much better!

Needless to say, I haven’t been up to doing posts. Over Thanksgiving I was stressing a lot about this 365 project and how I was going to catch up, and I finally realized, with the help of my wonderful father, that I had enough in my life stressing me out and that while I should finish 365 creative projects eventually, the goal date of Feb. 2nd was really unrealistic, so I should set another goal. Obviously even more things have happened since Thanksgiving, so now I’m even more determined to not make this project stressful, and continue to make it more of a stress reliever, on my own time.

Because of this, my new goal completion date is May 10, which is two days after the last exam day of the semester when I will FINALLY have completed my bachelors degree of science in interior design! (yep… Still in school. That health stuff effected more than just this blog…) This date is a good three months plus past the original February date, so I may finish before that, but I’m going to pace myself and take it one day at a time!

You may have also noticed that I haven’t been putting the number of days behind I am anymore. That was one major piece of advice I took from my father, because he and I both realized it was stressing me out even more! So! Just posts, as much as I can, eventually totaling up to 365 days!

I have been working on some things over the past few weeks, mainly Christmas presents, so I have a few standby posts that I’ll start with!

I really appreciate all of the support I have gotten throughout this project from friends, family, and blog followers that I don’t even know! Without you all, I couldn’t push through til the end through sickness and health! I hope you all had a fabulous holiday season, however you celebrated, and that this new year brings great things for you all. I certainly hope that this year brings better health for me and I strive to have a better, more positive outlook on everything!

Love you all!

Anna Grace
