Friends, Romans, countrymen!

In the early hours of this first day of January in the year 2015, I would like to extend my New Year greetings to all of you! I also want to take the opportunity to explain a couple of things, share some ideas and set forth my tasks to be accomplished in the new year, at least insofar they concern my dA account.

First of all, I must apologise (again) for not having been very active here recently. Since early November, there has been no progress in our ‘Journey through History’ (please read this and this if you don’t know what this is about). I am very sorry. If truth be told, I must admit I haven’t been feeling very focused, energetic and ‘mentally healthy’ in life over the past months. Nevertheless, I want to finish the journey and present a broad scope on (European) history through cartography.

This brings me to the tasks I want to accomplish on dA in the new year, in order of importance:

I.) Finish the Journey through History – We are now in the Early Middle Ages and have much ground to cover and many maps to create before we arrive in the European Union anno 2015. I think it’s a realistic goal, if I get focused...
II.) Make more journal entries and polls – I was thinking about writing a journal at the end of each month, with a brief overview of things that happened in that particular month. And some random poll-questions could be a cool way to get some discussions going on various topics, usually history-related.
Upload a dA-ID again – I guess I’ve been hiding behind a comic character long enough, although I chose him because he looks like me, but way cooler (it’s actually Lancelot du Lac, as portrayed in a Flemish comic about the Middle Ages).

I will not trouble you with any other “New Year Resolutions” (do you really want to know I want to play more guitar, get a band together again or go back to Paris?), so this will do for now. But I am determined to make this the year to accomplish and complete the things I have started working on last year (hence also the title of this journal), so I can hopefully look back at 2015 in an atmosphere of fulfilment and satisfaction when December comes again.

Best wishes for the New Year 2015! Let it be a quest for a victory worthy of Bonaparte himself!
