Result #56: Though I failed to fit any painting in last year I'm now set up for a creative 2015.

#56 This is going to be the year I complete this book as well.

Date: 2-25-2014

Due Date: 2-25-2015

Resolution: As you can see from past resolutions, I've managed to build up quite a collection of "How To" books over the years. The fact that I've yet to complete any of them isn't necessarily due to the fact that I've given up on the things that I want to learn, more often than not I give up on these books because I either learned what I needed to get by, or found my own way of doing things.

Take oil painting for example. Even though I want to learn proper techniques I was able to do this by just buying paint and brushes and just going for it.

I haven't painted in quite a while and want to get back into it, so I figured why not start with the basics and use this book as a guide? I own it after all and right now it's just going to waste sitting there on my bookcase.

I guess that's the bigger point of this recent run of books that I own based resolution. I bought each and everyone of these books for a reason and that reason wasn't to be a decoration. In most cases the books in question were meant to create decoration, so that's what I'm going to do.


Update #1: The Conclusion.

Date: 2-28-2015


If you're actually reading this than I'm sure you've caught on that I'm pushing a lot of my resolution's due dates to the end of this year. Due to recent circumstances that's just the way things are going to have to be.

That said, I'm feeling pretty confident that I'm setting up my new living space for success.

I've had a home office corner of my room where I will do all my writing and what not, but now I have a creativity corner that I'll dedicate to arts and crafts.

I feel having two separate work spaces will allow me to get into the different head space and allow me to produce more art.

At least that the delusional dream.

I started out with a goal of becoming a paid screenwriter. I had no interest in any other aspect of filmmaking. I received and scholarship to The Vancouver Film School's Writing for Film and Television program where I graduated in 2005. I fell in love with being on set during my first non-school produced short, . I loved being around all the creative people, seeing people having fun while working. The whole liking your job was a new world to me, so I decided to give it a shot. I volunteered for any project I could, doing what ever was needed. The set was my Film School this time. While working as a PA on a feature I was informed that the DP wanted the three tallest PAs to help out in the grip and electric department. That is when I found the department that felt like the best fit for me while I continued to write.
