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