For my 30 before 30 project I cooked over 100 new recipes in one year (my goal was 30!) It was so inspiring to cook new recipes and I miss that motivation!

1. 105 new recipes

I want to put some thought into my personal style and some effort in every week. This sounds vague, but one week I was feeling particularly down, so I put a pretty basic effort into my appearance every day, took a selfie, felt more put together, got more done in general. I think stuff like this helps a lot when you work from home. 

3. A Weekly Effort

Not locking myself down to anything specific! We're always working on a few and I have let a few stagnate while I rewatch TNG over and over again.

5. Finish 5 TV Shows

Obviously I'm allowed to take little breaks, but with all the new projects I have planned for the next two years, I don't want to fall behind on my Patreon! I really like using it as the one central location to get to everything I make and do. 

7. Keep my Patreon up to date!

This is a leftover from my 30 before 30. :(

I made progress! But there's still so much to do. I want to make a page on my site to share the photos, too, so that my mom can share them on Facebook now that I have deactivated mine. 

9. Scan my Mom's family photos

That'd be nice. 

11. Save some money?

I had a good video game summer, but usually I'm just so behind on the new games by the time I get to them everyone's moved on to the next!

13. Play more Video Games

I would love to shoot a roll of film every month again, but I feel guilty about never getting it developed. Tentatively start this in 2019-2020 and maybe I will have gotten #14 done by then, too!

15. Let myself shoot film again! (even though I don't have it all developed yet)

We do this anyway and I could use an easy, happy goal right about now. :)

17. Monthly Date Night

It never ends!

19. Cull wardrobe, take to Goodwill

Non-self specific (I miss those!) Start on August 25, 2019. 

21. One 365 day project

I love the things I love and I get anxious about new places. I LOVE to eat new foods, though.

23. Try 5 new restaurants in Tulsa

Gothics in the bath count. 

25. Read 10 fiction books

I'm consistently 10 years behind on this!

27. Design and order 2008 photo book

I got some, but I'm intimidated!

29. Paint with Gouache

Then find the next thing to get better at listening and speaking comprehension. 

31. Finish Duolingo French

It's a thing to do with them. 

33. Work on a quilt of all our favorite old crummy t-shirts


35. Shoot a day in photos on my 35th birthday

I loved my hand drawn layouts in my last bullet journal, but I gave myself a break with a more traditional planner in 2018. I'm ready to start back up in 2019! 

2. Bullet Journal 2019

I have anxiety about certain kinds of media consumption. Like most of my anxiety I can't explain it in a logical way, and of course, I would like to overcome it. Watching new movies (rather than rewatching old favorites) is sometimes tough for me. I do very well with plans and schedules, though, so when I know something is coming up I'm prepared for it. I know, I'm talking about getting up the nerve to watch a movie! Anxiety is a silly asshole, sometimes.

4. Saturday Movie Nights

I have 8 or 9 first drafts to draw from, after all.

6. Edit 1 NaNoWriMo Novel

Schedules and lists, this project and that! Everything here and there and also in triplicate. 

8. Keep my Website Updated

I do have to schedule this or it will only happen when I burn out. I have short list of what this might mean, weekends away, that sort of thing.

10. Take Breaks

I would be happy just to make some progress!

12. Get caught up on video editing and stay on top of it!

I shot a roll of film every month for a year before I turned 30 and I still haven't gotten it developed. It'd be cool to do that BEFORE I TURN 35.

14. Get 30 before 30 film developed

We'll probably be in Virginia again next year, or somewhere else, and I wish I had felt able to do more tourist things. I really want to see DC but I couldn't get up the nerve. 

16. Plan my summers better!

Make a list of goals for the house and yard. 

18. Work on the House/Yard

Do every new Yoga with Adriene video and make progress on the monthly calendars every month. Do any new 30 day challenges. 

20. Yoga Goals

August 25, 2018- August 24, 2019. Remember what it feels like to create when I feel like it. 

22. No strict daily photo projects for 1 year

I used to read so much, this would have been so easy! 

24. Read 10 non-fiction books

A phone photo project that's more about documentation than art (though, of course, accidents happen!) The last 100 days of 2018. 

26. 100 happy days

Specifically when we are traveling, but also all the time!

28. Go on more Photo Adventures!

I'd like to have the concept art done, anyway. Very basic. Nothing has to be finished!

30. Work on my Tarot Deck

Ah, I would love for this to happen. There's so many I want to run. There's so many I want to play! Timing hasn't been great for it in a while and I miss it a lot.

32. Run another Tabletop game campaign

It was super gratifying.

34. Do another sketch-a-day journal
