Almost Level 24

24 Jan

(LoZ Item Get never gets old)

Tomorrow is my birthday, and in many ways, this year is pretty “Meh” celebration wise (which I’m okay with).  I have to work both jobs, and I have to work early Monday so that means no party-hardying for me (that’s okay…I’ll make it up to myself next year for my 25th since it’ll be my golden ;D).

goals for 2015

Earlier this month I did goals for myself as a business.  In lieu of my b-day, I’m going to write down 24 goals for myself personally for the year.

  1. Time management.  Seriously, I have a ton of issues with this. D:  I’m hoping to fix that this year.
  2. Work + Life balance.  Will play into time management.  Right now I technically work 4 jobs (Vandervest, JoAnns, my parents, and myself).  I literally have no structure week to week and my system is completely screwed up.  I’m hoping by at least June I have stuff figured out.  I need routine.
  3. Find an exercise regime that works for me.  I recently discovered hooping so…I hope that sticks (I have to rest another day or two from it though.  They really aren’t kidding when they say you get bruises D: ).  I can’t walk a gajillion miles on end at the mall (or even around town) like my brother does…unless I go with him.  It is just not satisfying to me and becomes a reeeeaaal big hassle (not to mention back to #2 where I have like…no routine)
  4. Make healthier food choices.  Even though it’ll be a bit more expensive in some ways….I really gotta crack down on this.  This includes remembering to take my supplements regularly (which I don’t right now).
  5. Finish Sarah’s Death Jester Cosplay.  Hoping time management can help with this one because I still have a shit-ton to do.  T__T Augh (stressing already)
  6. Find a different outlet for stress other than crying.  I get stressed out.  I cry.  I get really frustrated.  I cry.  I need to find a more creative/productive outlet.
  7. Stay on track for paying off my loans.  Want these babies paid off.  A lot.
  8. Have at least 1 photoshoot for my business.
  9. Create a collection for said photoshoot.  Hopefully by Fall.
  10. As always, lose weight/or rather lose fat and gain muscle.  With a lot of stress since the end of 2013, (being much amplified this past fall), I gained a bunch of weight.  Hoping goals 3 and 4 will help with this.
  11. Learn to say no.  I’m better than I was, but I could still use some help.
  12. Keep up this blog.  I have a blog content plan planned through February (fully) and partially through the end of the year.  (Constants being the first of the month is a business update post, the 15th is an influential designer, and the end of the month will be a round-up of articles on Textiles, Fashion, and Fashion shows or other fun articles I come across outside those categories).
  13. Organize.  If you saw my room, you’d understand the need for this.
  14. Create a website.  May have to hire a friend to do the layout and such for me because I’m terrible with code. T_T  I can do fun photoshop/illustrator stuff but can’t make it into a webpage D:
  15. Help mom get our sewing/crafting room up and running.  It’ll make both of our lives easier once we have that.
  16. Gain better self confidence.  I can be quite good at faking it, but I have absolute terrible self-esteem.  This is a never-ending process at the moment.  Hopefully one day I can take this off my list.
  17. Start thinking about long-term life planning.  Don’t have to plan anything now, but I need to at least start getting it in my head that one of these days I wont be living with my parents and I’ll need to learn how to do stuff.
  18. Continue making connections, no matter how big or small.  Now that I have a different setting of a job at the dealership, I’ll get to meet all kinds of new people and experiences.  I’m actually very excited for this.
  19. Don’t be afraid to take some risks.  Right now I’m really conservative when it comes to money and taking risks.  I fear that if I stay this way, I wont be able to grow my business.  What’s holding me back, though, is my crippling debt from college and that is constantly in the back of my mind.
  20. Work on my art skills.  Hopefully, starting in February (when things have calmed down a bit), I will try to find time, even if it’s only 5 minutes a day, to try and sketch.  Anything and everything.
  21. Use up some of the fabric downstairs and try to lessen the amount of impulse buying.  Mom keeps yelling at me for bringing more home.  I can’t help it ;__; (I’ve at least gotten smart enough to start labeling the fabric with what my intended use for it so when I finally get to it, I remember why I bought it)
  22. Make an epic pattern/design for fabric.  Idk what that will be yet, but I want something that I designed and then make it into something.
  23. Delve into papermaking and dying fabric.  They look really awesome, and very much potential black holes
  24. Make it to 25.  Only have about 366 days to go.

Okay.  I’m done pestering you with weird goals.  I’ll hopefully have part III of Making a Collection done this next week.
