2017 was just like yesterday. Obviously,I should be forgiven for thinking about this year in past tense already but I have a headache and my photoshop does not have animator so there is nothing to do but read my old 2016 post here
First of all, I am struck by how I found the number seven to be a novel number. Makes me want to roll my eyes now. what optimism! Such great hopes lol. So not fleshed out in the way it has always appeared in my head. I thought I’d had long term life plans written in that post only to find them sounding commonplace and easily not memorable.
To summarize what I do think about my resolutions post in one line, I’d say it was much ado about nothing. It was not grand enough to cause a climax even if followed meticulously. It certainly doesn’t feel like a warranted a post of it’s own or maybe I have grown to diminish the importance of what I wrote.
I have lost interest in telling what I want to achieve and am more interested what i have achieved. And the highlight of my year has been rediscovering my drawing talent. I would share them here as I have done already on twitter if I had’t lost the enthusiasm few seconds before typing the last line. Drawing has consumed my mind much more than writing or reading. I fear I might be entering a realm of mish mashy–this is not a word- state of not caring meticulously about the informationizing of myself. It’s been less controlled and restricted, more nuanced as I go long stretches without touching a link or some book. I recently joined a reading book club so maybe you shouldn’t believe my lack of interest so readily ei. But with that being said, i have to add that I have been thinking in terms of a Wacom graphics tablet and since we’ve all been proclaiming things recently after khalid’s win at the grammy’s, I say it’ll be nice to have one in addition to my asus tablet for drawing.
And just because…and in case anyone is wondering what I’ve learnt this year, it is that nothing is definite and we should not make promises of things we cannot control. That and some other things which I have spoken of already on twitter which i’m again, too lazy to recap here.
See everyone in the new year or whenever, if God wills .
