Here I go. I will share with you my year accomplishments and resolutions. I have the (nerd) habbit to write down in my agenda or notebook the near term, middle term (2 years) and long term (5 years) resolutions every year. I have realized some of my projects and wishes this way, but I confess that it is nerd.
Well, here are some of this year´s accomplishments:
I was promoted, was released from pressure and long hours of work. I do not have to work until 5am during New Year´s Eve or Carnaval. This was a good acoomplishment! Haha. I will have my first calm and great New Year´s Eve with fireworks at the beach!
2. POEM BOOK
I hired a designer to work on my soon to be released poem book. The poem book consists of 78 poems and 13 illustrations done on coal and Chinese Ink by me. The project was sent to the Cultural Ministry to be approved and sponsered.
3. QUESTION BOOK
I decided to go independently on my Question Book project. The Question Book is a pocket game-book with 317 questions for you to play with your friends. The best accomplishment here was the decision itself. I am waiting for a year now on a very famous and big Publisher Business which liked a lot my project but apparently was "waiting for the best editorial moment to publish it". This project became more of a self-realization project and I decided that even losing money, I would make it happen independently. So, I am going for it.
4. THE ART REFERENCE BLOG
I started THE ART REFERENCE blog on March 2010. It has being a great pleasure of mine. This is a space that I write what I want, I share my days, my art visits, travels, readings and my opinions, I open a space for Guest Columnists to contribute with the blog sharing their projects.
Here are some of my 2011´s resolutions are:
1. HEALTH LIFE STYLE
This year I started (and quited) rowling at the Lagoon. I started exercicing in the gym only in the weekends and I struggled to get some pounds as I was too skinny (48kilos, almost 105.6 pounds). Now I weight 53kilos or 116.6 pounds. I can at least donate blood now.
