Checking in with Reality: July 2010

Dearest Devotees,

I took a break from these posts because I realized I had a couple of long term projects to work on for awhile and that weekly updates would be pointless until important steps have been accomplished. Now the middle of this year has come and gone I feel like I've gotten to a point where I can give a pretty good update on how my resolutions are going.

Since the last time I posted I have:

Finished my first official voice class. I learnt much more than I expected to learn and I feel like it has given me some skills that will help me in other parts of my life.

Finished my first costume design and production (sewing) classes. They were amazing. I learnt so much from both of them and begun work on my portfolio in earnest. I also now have a sample binder and created my first smock. I am currently figuring out how to embellish it.

have started understanding Economics again which is awesome since it's my actual Major.

bought my first sewing machine :) and memo board.

finished my first hip hop class. It was LA style hip hop. I loved it and am currently looking for another one.

have found the Karaoke bar I will perform at for my two public performances.

gone canoeing. It was epic.

found a room organisational system that works for me and have kept it for 7 weeks and counting!

Found some really amazing people who make everyday a blessing.

Things I'm currently in the process of doing and will continue to work on for the next couple of weeks/months:

Finding a good routine and scheduling system, that will let me have time for everything that's important.

Getting back into some sort of regularity with blogging. It's been difficult because I've been in summer school and 4 months of work is covered in 6 weeks. Honestly, I need to find a way to cut down on school work load.

Figuring out my business plan for my future fashion company.

Learning to use garageband to practice my musical production skills.

Teaching myself music theory.

Learning the most random but highly entertaining stuff from books in the library and my anthropology class.

Taking my first ballroom dance class.

Trying to find volunteering/interning/job opportunities and networking opportunities that could help me learn more about the creative industry.

Working on my faith.

Finding a mentor.

Practicing my music and my french.

Well, that's all for now my dearest devotees. I hope you are all well.

Love you all and Stay inspired,

P.S. So let me know what you think. Have you been working on your goals for the year. How far do you think you've come? Feel free to let me know in the comments below.

P.P.S. If you haven't already you can still enter for the giveaways. The surprise one is open to all my devotees irrespective of location. I have also extended the entry period until this saturday.

You really resemble me! I have a ton of other goals, but I've been blogging about them a lot lately, both short-term and long-term.

Good luck with all of them! And good for you for working so hard!
