2013 was great but for this new year I want to make it even better! As usual I’m going to only set myself five new years resolutions and try and limit myself to only allowing two old resolutions to make their way into this year.
No. 1: More travel
I was going to add exercise to this list but you know what? I don’t think I care this year since my diet’s really good now, all (or most of) my health problems are resolved, and I do a tone of walking anyhow. This year I want to focus on great experiences rather than appearances. I don’t know where I want to travel (countries wise), but top of my list for the UK is Giant’s Causeway, Stonehenge and Edinburgh. If I just manage those I’ll be happy!
No. 2: Improve videos
Normally at the end of each year I like to look over my blog and videos and write up a list of things I would like to improve. Since switching iMovie for Final Cut Pro I’ve been able to improve my video editing so much, but there’s always room for improvement. My main aim being to improve both my pictures and colour correcting which is still nowhere near perfect. And to be honest I wouldn’t mind tackling some bigger themes which need more props to be made, backgrounds and special editing.
No. 3: Make something
Two things I want to make and sell this year, if I do either of them I’ll be happy (preferably both).
- Illustrate a children’s book I wrote about a little albino robin called Ruby. I know it’s outside my demographic and so not the kind of thing my subscribers/readers would be interested in. But for me, apart from being a very educational and interesting experience I mainly want to make it as a present for a very kind lady who helped me with my art A-Levels. I figured it would be a better way to say thank you an a card. …..
- Make a series of themed t-shirts. I’m not sure what theme I want, maybe the seasons, the elements or the zodiacs, I just know this year I really want to make something beautiful which people will love to read or wear. Something I can be proud of and involves art.
And since I’m writing about this what theme would you like to see if I did t-shirts?
No. 4: More concerts
After seeing Phantom of the Opera a few weeks ago I really want to see more. Cirque du Soleil and Halestorm being top of my list. I was so inspired after seeing Phantom that I just have to see more.
No. 5: Fenix Album and music videos
All the songs are written, now we just need to pick our favourites, record them and make the music videos. I won’t lie, I’m increadibly nervous and excited about this since I’ll be doing the video editing too (I think I have a problem with turning down challenges). I’m especially hoping that we get to do the music videos how we would like, especially my favourite song called Siren.
To be honest this who year is going to be insane! Easily twice the amount of work I had since last year, so I’m going to have to plan everything extremely well or things like my second channel and blog are going to suffer. But I’m determined to do it, and I’m really excited (and a little terrified) about it all too.
