Resolutions

3rd semester has started. I survived the second semester but here is the very big question: Did I reach the goals I set for it?
Well, kind of 😃
The first goal was to be more organized and take notes of my thought process: check. Did that.
Second goal was – and I am going to quote myself here – “to put more thought and basically everything I have into all my projects, whatever it takes“:
Well, I did with some projects. Like the Micro-Comic, I put so much time in it and I am quite happy with how it turned out! I think I can show you a tiny snippet of it:

But I think, that was the one I put the most effort in, except for our project week, where we made a card game, which was the best project anyway.
The other things though? I’m not too sure if I put all my heart in them..
Third goal: Be more creative and do more artsy things outside of school: I think I can check that, too. I haven’t done anything too overwhelming but I filled my sketchbooks and practiceD some drawing, so check.
Now, what are my goal for the new semester?
First: survive. I have a job now, so I will have less time and have to manage it better – or get less sleep. I will see which one it will be.
Second: Same as last semester: put more effort into every project.
And third (because I think 3 is a great number): Keep up the artsy stuff.

I made something new!

Now that we have film and post production in school, I introduced myself to some more programs to work with. One of them is Adobe After Effects and, boy, this is fun! I watched some introduction tutorials on Youtube and then decided to try myself. Et voilá, I made something! I know, it’s just some circles moving, not even in a straight line, but I managed to make them move in a very short time. And that felt good! I did that, not because I had to, but because I wanted to, outside of school (technically I did it in school, but in a class that really didn’t need my attention and not because it was a task we were supposed to do 😃).
It’s a small victory for me and it feels great. That’s why I am sharing it. It keeps me motivated to keep going and to discover more new things to try out!

It moves! And I made it! 😀
