Posts Tagged ‘goals’

Yup. That’s right. 2014 is here and it’s time to create a bunch of new year resolutions and goals that I will most likely never finish, but hey… it never hurts to try 😉

Besides the traditional goals, like losing weight, saving money, use less of facebook… ect, I have a bunch of art goals in mind. I haven’t used my blog in quite sometime, but I hope I can start posting again for these purposes… although, I know a lot of people are using Instagram these days, and with the new purchase of my first smartphone; I can now unleash the Seattle hipster inside me and use it as my little art-selphies or whatever the kids call it these days. Below is my so called 52 week goals. I won’t beat myself up if I miss a week here and there, as I tend to be busy with actual “work work” and all the stuff I want to do is a pretty tall order… but it’s nice to have a target or something to remind me that I have a laundry list of unlocked goals I can do, rather than browse more baby pics on facebook or puppy videos on Youtube.

I don’t know if anyone actually checks my blog, but feel free to join in if you’re interested. 🙂
