Fear of the New Year

Just had to share this little comic. If any of you are in need of inspiration or a way to procrastinate on the web, visit Inkygirl 's blog. It's great :D or the comics. If you were part of NaNoWriMo, you might recognize her work.

I identified really well with the comic because sometimes, the world just seems too big. Especially when you're making plans. And what better time to make plans than New Years Eve. So, as you see 2010 unfolding in your imagination, just keep this in mind: if you don't like coffee, there's always hot cocoa via Trish.
