Often, joking for me is a way of diffusing the awkwardness of a situation, so it's kind of exhilarating to be a part of projects where there's nothing funny or lighthearted."
I'm going to try to keep this post a bit short, I have a big meeting tomorrow early in the morning and it is already midnight! Where do my nights go half of the time? Today's topic is about projects. In addition to my everyday work, I always have some sort of other more personal project underway. I'm a firm believer that we must advance ourselves at our own paces, so I try to advance my skills in different things which I don't know very much about.
In the past I have had projects where I learned more about music cataloged all of my old CDs, I have had tv show marathons so that I can carry a conversation about tv if someone brings it up, and now my mind is split between my cooking project and my website project. I really need to get into the normal swing of things and develop a routine, but over the past few weeks and weekends, I have either come home late from work and have been exhausted, or I really didn't feel very motivated to do anything creative. I know the easy answer is that I can do both, but it is usually helpful to create personal goals for these projects and eventually reach a final outcome. Both of the cooking and website projects don't seem to have much of an end at the moment and because of this, they have been placed on hold because I haven't set deadlines for myself. Originally I thought it would be fun to "cook my way" through one of the cookbooks, but after looking through one of mine that I own and wanted to use, there really were only about half of the recipes that I wanted to try. Maybe I should just do a weekly challenge and see how that goes :) Well I'm off to bed, goodnight all!
Question time: Do you give yourself personal projects to accomplish? If so, what are some examples, leave a response in the comment section down below!
About the video: One of the things I have slowly, but surely have been doing with these videos is inserting YouTubers that may not be the most popular content creaters, but I want to show them off and have people "meet them" and get to know their content. Over the past few months, I have actually come across Blake Grigsby's work twice. He recently started posting videos again, and I think they are fun and make you smile. Below is a video of one of the projects he did a year ago which seemed like such a cool idea! Most of his videos are "prank" or "social experiment" kind of videos, but unlike most other videos in this category, he brings them from an innocent place and doesn't go overboard. Most of his projects are positive based and leave the "victims" smiling afterward and that is what these kind of videos should do!
