For 2020.

And just like that, another year has passed by… Maybe it’s just me but perhaps there’s something about the start of a new decade that makes one especially reflect and ponder about life choices? I mean, setting aside the fact that it has been nearly half a year since I’ve last posted on here, there’s a lot I’ve been thinking about in what I want to try to achieve with this blog – and I think that hasn’t really changed much since I started writing it back in July of 2018.

Passion? Yep, it’s definitely still there. Motivation? Ehhh, not so much (I’m sure most people can relate though, right?!?! *nervous chuckle*). But seriously, I find if I try to tackle the problem of motivation always, I seem to arrive at the same conclusion nearly each time; that is, the solution for me often comes down to time management. In being honest with myself, I always understood that it is not a matter of whether or not I have time to spend on some of my hobbies and interests, but rather, how much time do I want to or should I devote? And then I realize that this should not be a question I should have to ask myself altogether! To simply put, I need to make better use of my time. Yes, I need to work, cook, eat, bathe, sleep – who doesn’t? So, if I truly have passion then, I need to convince myself and instill in me a routine – a constant and inherent need – to be creative and learn and do graphics, animation, and game design – lest I should change the title of my blog!

To wrap up, I would just like to further mention that I have never ever understood or made New Year’s Resolutions. In fact, I still shudder and cringe a bit at the notion of the first day of the year being the day to make a case on whether or not one should improve him or herself (I mean, really, for goodness’ sake!). Then again, maybe it’s not so absurd after all… So maybe, just maybe, I should make an exception for this year. For 2020.
