2018: Let's Try Something New

newyearblog1.jpg

I’m not one to make new years resolutions or to even set goals for the year. But this year, I want to make a list of things that I want to do and/or accomplish by December 31st. 

Since I’m turning 25 this year (eek! where did the time go?!) and moving out of state in a few weeks, I want to try and get myself out my comfort zone more and force myself to accomplish as many things as I can. Mainly because I feel like I haven’t done much in the last few years due to being comfortable and too shy/chicken to do anything. 

So, below is a list of some of the things, in no particular order, that I want to cross off my list.
(I do have a larger list in a notebook but I don’t want to share everything.)

 
  • Pay down my student loans
  • Get my passport
  • Save up at least $3000 for travel
  • Get a full-time design job…again
  • Take on more photography clients 
  • Take on more freelance design clients. 
  • Take a photo every month that documents that month or something I enjoyed that month
  • Design at least one personal thing a month and work up to every week
  • Sketch more. I want to fill up this mini sketchbook I have. Which means I need to stop trying to make things perfect.
  • Explore at least one new place a month - city, restaurant, coffee shop, etc..
  • Go on 4 mini adventures with a friend(s)
  • Meet up with more local bloggers or photographers aka just go out and meet people. (Get a social life.)
  • Get another tattoo
  • Read at least 4 new books
