The new year is coming very soon (technically in 2 days but we celebrate tomorrow!)  I cannot wait for the new year. But before we move forward, let’s move back with things I did in 2015:

  • Started a blog in June (you can search my first post “Dangerous Social Media Apps”)

 

  • Relearned how to ride a bike

 

  • Saved money and bought a computer

 

  • Traveled to Aruba

 

  • Enjoyed my time in Aruba

 

  • Recently started to do more DIY projects

 

Here are the things I will try to accomplish in 2016:

  • Chill out/ and stop worrying about stupid things

 

  • Be more happy

 

  • I will now post DIY projects I find on Pinterest and try them out. I will also post things about seeing through someone else’s eyes. Also, if you are new to blogging, check out my Newbie Blogging Tips page on the sidebar for awesome advice to get started!

 

  • Try to cut back on the chocolate and sweets

 

  • Travel a lot more!!

 

  • Draw more

 

  • Focus on my academic career more than anything

Well, these are all my goals for 2016. What will be yours?

Is Your Talent Really a Talent?

If you have one talent, whether it’s fishing, drawing, or playing basketball, it needs to be treated correctly. Let me explain:

 

  For example, I could say that I’m good at drawing (not to brag, but that statement isn’t wrong) , but what makes me good at it? What do I need to have in order to draw? Do I have the time to do it to excel at it? What’s the purpose of doing it?  These are the questions you must ask yourself before you commit to something, private saxophone classes, joining a choir, or joining a soccer team.

What in the world would make me good at drawing? It could be an inborn talent, or taking private classes to get better at it (ok, I’m not the best drawer in the world, but I can draw more than stick figures)

Many hobbies or talents require supplies in order to do that project. For example, to be a photographer, you need to have a camera, or at least a phone with decent quality (like me) With drawing, you must have a crayon, pencil, oil paste, or colored pencil.

Some activities require a lot of commitment. Like joining a hockey team requires time and effort. Do you have the time to complete the never-ending goal?

What’s the point of doing the task? If you want to quit the job, then why did you sign up for it anyways? You need to think long and hard before you risk your time and patience. Ask Do I have any plans during this time? Do I really love doing this? Is this really that important? 

Think about this when you’re choosing to sign up to something. It can really help you.

My Favorite Hobby (you know, with blogging too)

What are your hobbies? What to you love to do? I’ll tell you something a little more about me: I love to draw.

 

Hello Lips

I really like to mix it up when I draw. I don’t like to draw any particular subject; I draw what I feel. Or maybe I don’t draw what I feel. I draw what I want. Whether it’s bedrooms, eyes, lips, hair, or people, I’m down for it.

 

This is an example of drawing what I see; a sight in Aruba

Even though I am not the “best” drawer in the world, I don’t think it’s possible to be a “best” drawer. Just like when you say you want to be perfect, you cannot be perfect because the meaning “perfect” is different to everyone else.

Music to my Ears

You can check out more of my drawings on my Pinterest board for  drawings. See you soon!
