2016 was a year full of new beginnings for me. I got a lot of new opportunities and a lot of new projects were started in 2016. Some of these opportunities are just in planning right now and some projects are in their beginning stages. It has been exciting, though. 2017 will be the year many of these opportunities will be fleshed out. Look forward to a lot of new stuff coming soon. Happy new year.
It is so much more difficult working for my own projects. When I work for something else, I can really clearly see what needs to be done. I am the consumer and I know what interests me and what I want to see. When I create something for my own projects, though, the perspective is different. I am the producer and I want to show somebody else all of the different facets. I try to show them everything I see in the project and that can be difficult. I want to create something perfect and that is just impossible.
I badly need some new clothes. I am broke, though, so I need something cheap. I went shopping for something else today and checked out some clothes as well. Nice clothes are so expensive! If I buy everything I need, I will easily spend a few hundred bucks. I don’t know how to afford that. I didn’t get anything just yet but I will need to get something soon.
It is a pain waiting for people. Especially when you set a time to meet and they change it last minute. It is a huge waste of time and it doesn’t help anybody. I always try to tell people early enough if plans change. I think that is the responsibility of the person changing the plans. It is kind of weird to demand of people to constantly check in whether plans have changed or not.
I am actually trying to learn singing. So far, I think this is really the thing that I had the least amount of talent for. I was so horrible in the beginning. I couldn’t hold a single note and I was unable to sing any kind of song without the melody. Well, I am still horrible. I still cannot sing without doing it karaoke. However, very slowly I am getting a little bit better.
I think it helps approaching these with the mindset that you don’t need to become professional or really good. You are just doing this for yourself. But at the same time, do the training like you want to be the best in the world.
Christmas is over. I didn’t really work at all during this time. I got a little bit of stuff done but overall I just took it really easy. I know that it will be difficult waking up properly again tomorrow and doing work. I will want to continue relaxing but I definitely cannot do it. My company is not going to wait for me.
Some people can see fault in everything. They are really pessimistic and in general very negative. It is draining being around those people sometimes. I feel like they think they are helping. They want to point out things how they seem to them but it is not helpful at all. It is just exhausting having to defend everything around them.
Merry Christmas to you all. I hope that you have a few lovely days of rest. No matter whether you celebrate with family, friends, or not at all, I wish you some time to relax and recharge.
Content is king and I notice that the best thing I can do for my dancer app is upload more content regularly. It is not difficult getting the content and I can do it pretty quickly as well. The problem is doing it regularly. Taking an hour every day is really difficult. I should do it, though. It doesn’t feel like progress but this stuff is so important. It is basically maintenance.
It is so inspiring how quickly my life can change. Just one week ago, I had no motivation had all and had a lot of trouble focusing on my work. I was down about it and worried that I would never be able to be successful with it. Today, everything looks so much better. I am excited to work on all of my different projects and I don’t feel like doing anything unproductive. I am happy that this is the change that is happening now but it is also scary that the situation can change back just as quickly.
