My name is Mara and welcome to a couple bite-sized pieces of my life. ūüôāhello

It’s been cloudy and rainy for the past few days where I am. ¬†At times like these, I just want to curl up under my comforter and laze about. ¬†But lazing about has made me restless. And from there, I had the urge to start something new. ¬†Or somewhat new. It’s been years since I’ve tried blogging¬†since I’m practically¬†a social media hermit. ¬†My earliest attempts were the sporadic rantings of a silly¬†pre-teen. ¬†My art blog in¬†college didn’t last very long after¬†I got buried under school work. ¬†Tumblr is my version of instant gratification blogging and so my blog there is a stream of funny gifs, pretty illustrations, and all the egg recipes that happen to pop up my dashboard.

Which brings me here for a blogging do-over.

Now that I have an inkling of clarity,¬†I want to try blogging for several reasons. ¬†I want something to work on. ¬†I want to see my progress as I find fun with art again. ¬†I want a place to share some of my interests and adventures. Hmm… okay but to be real though, this blog will probably end up filled with silly things. XD
