Happy New Years everyone! As a new year comes into place, its that time of year a lot of us reflect on the past and look forward to the future. My new year resolutions are continuing many from the previous year. So I'm not sure if they are resolutions as much as keeping up what I'm happy with!
1. Focus on me! - Not art related so much, but this past year of 2013 I lost 45 lbs from a lot of hard work! Who knew cutting back the calories and exercising 4-5 times a week actually works! lol I cut some ties with people and situations that were really bringing me down and finally decided I needed a change. I liked that change of attitude and I'd like to continue it! My goal this year is to lose another 30 lbs and in the mean time enjoy clothes fitting better than ever!
2. Get more fashionable! - One thing that start happening when losing weight is I got more conscious of what I was wearing and wanted to start wearing outfits that really reflected who I am. So this year, I'd like to work on my wardrobe as the sizes keep shrinking. (hopefully but confidently!) I've dropped a pants size and 2 shirt sizes last year, so the better clothes fit the happier I am!
3. Expand my art! - Last year I made a big push for myself to get out of my comfort zone and work on new things. Like full illustrations, environments, drawing guys, drawing groups etc…. I'd like to continue that, but go even further with more styles and techniques. Started doing that more towards the end of this past year. So I'm hoping by the end of this year, I'll have even more styles I've tried out!
4. Take more trips! - Being where I am right now, I could really take fun weekend trips if I can save up the money. I'd really like to start. Cause I don't have too many commitments outside of work so this would be the best time to go! And if anything, visit home more. Living so far away from family can be hard.
Those are the biggies. There are others but I'm not going to go into all of them. But yeah, other than the last one, most are continuations of my constant resolutions. If that makes sense. haha
What about y'all? I'd love to hear some of you resolutions!
