I do this every year. I am sure I am not the only one. In an attempt to be organized I write down all that I want to accomplish in the coming year. I know there will be crazy ideas that pop up as the seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and such pass, but I already have a great deal of ideas that would like to see fruition soon. So, in an attempt to keep myself sane and realistic, I wrote down all of my hopes for 2011. At the same time I guessed how long each activity would take me. Add that to how many hours I get to dedicate to art each week (about 15 or so) and my projects are placed in a certain week of a certain month to be completed at that time. It feels good. I know it sounds crazy to think that such a rigid routine could help a girl stay sane. But, I am willing to break from my routine from time to time. Writing everything down just helps me realize how insane it is to think I can get everything I want to get done in a week (I am always in a big hurry). So, I am living my art concept. Take nothing for granted, enjoy the mundane, seemingly unimportant events, and soak up every moment you get a chance to be a part of.
