So… I’m over a week late saying goodbye to 2014. But here goes, Goodbye 2014 and Hello 2015! So what am I hoping to achieve this year? Well apart from my continued goals of learning Japanese, finding a creative job, procrastinating less and spending time with loved ones… I really want to improve my artistic output. This means blogging more, working on personal projects, collaborating with other creative people and trying something new as often as I can. Because if there’s one thing I’ve learned from last year, its that just sitting around and doing nothing really isn’t all its cracked up to be.
I’m trying my upmost to rekindle my wonder for exploring places, its difficult when you’re in a place where you’ve lived for almost half your life. But don’t assume by any means that I dislike Cardiff, perhaps there are a few things I would like to improve (*ahem*public transport*ahem*), but on the whole there have been many exciting and fun things happening round here recently.
At the beginning of last month I returned to my family home in rainy Wales. It’d been the longest I’d ever been away from my immediate family, without visiting. I can’t deny that the significant distance between here and Vancouver factored into my return. But now I’m restless. Being in a place I’m so familiar with, has taken away my curiosity. When I visit new places, I want to walk about everywhere (which is in constant battle with my natural nature of “couch potato”). I’d like to regain that feeling of wonder for my environment, so I’ve decided that starting next month – I will try and get out of the house and explore. I also hope it will rekindle my interest for sharing the daily grind on here, as I’ve been terribly inattentive for a while.
