Great Expectations

Prompt: Tell us about one thing (or more) that you promised yourself you’d accomplish by the end of the year. How would you feel once you do? What if you don’t?

My personal goal for 2022 is to take an illustration course and start drawing in my spare time.

Once I’m actively drawing I’m certain there will be plenty of days where I’m thinking, “Wow. This does not look good.“, BUT I know it takes continual effort to build skills. Am I going to wish a skill bar would update with each new illustration? If only. I just hope the small milestones will keep my going.

Now if I don’t manage this by year’s end…’bummed’ is probably the best way to describe how I’ll feel. In the past, I’ve always put what I’d call “responsible goals” first whether career or education related. Anything in the realm of hobbies simply fell to the wayside, so I really want to pursue something for the joy of doing it.

We are three days into the new year and I can honestly say I haven’t started a course yet- mainly because I still need to finish my data analytics course…There’s plenty of time though!
