While I don't feel any older, I do believe I am a bit wiser and hope to channel this wisdom into the coming year to improve my life, my Self and my environment. I don't believe in New Year's resolutions. They always seemed temporary and easily broken. I prefer to reach for larger goals, more lasting ones. So, that being the case, the new Pennerad is 22, with an afro (wow...seriously?), a far cry from the Pennerad of years past. I've got a better grasp on what I want and need from my life, and while my hyper-criticism is still not quite in check, I'm working on getting a handle on what I want out of my career and post-bac lifestyle. It's scary, but I think I'm becoming a grown-up. Dangit...
Today's Brunch at a BK restaurant called Bratwa's. Haven't had this in about 12 years, so i was real happy.
To celebrate my birthday, I bought myself a pair of boots. Functional, comfy, and with LACES! Yippee.
New Fryes. Man, I love the Internet.

New Year's goofiness. I wore a black shirt-dress from H&M; a giant faux fur hooded coat/cape thing; my cowl/cardigan/hood; Firma wool jacket, stockings from Target, and a pair of beige boots from Fornarina...none of which are really pictured here, but no matter. Enjoy the fireworks instead:
All the best for the new year. Any goals in mind?
