Goals for 2019

The year closes and I have let myself down but also lifted myself up? I mean some good things happened but then some bad things happened. I feel like I did okay but then again I still pushed off age old goals I’ve had for years.

It was a tough year, a really tough year. For everyone, even if you were optimistic it was really tough.

Truths, non truths, long in time. It felt like I was only allowed to walk through the year while the days flew by.

I Tried to Simplify my 2018 Goals

Remember when I tried to keep it simple, lol.

Soderbergh List 2018

Steven Soderbergh cataloged all his pop culture experiences as “Seen, Read 2015” on his blog for the entire year. It was simple and quaint review, an exercise in memory and taste exploration. I figured since it wasn’t too far into the year to give it a try. I want to know the things I experienced for a whole year.

A link to my 2015 list, my 2016 list, and my 2017 list.

I had to adjust the legend to suit my needs.

All caps, bold: MOVIE
All caps: TV SERIES OR ANIME (NUMBER DENOTES EPISODES WATCHED)
All italics: Book or Comic*
Quotation marks: “Live Performance, Event, Convention”

*For books and comics, the day it appears is the day I finished said book or comic.

As a rule, if I watch more than half or 2/3 of a movie or tv show to the end I count it as watched. I only count books/comics/manga if I read it to the end on that day. I mark cons on the day of. Any day not counted in the list is a day I didn’t do any activity related to the above mentioned.

Proceeds the year that was 2018:

10 Movies That Have Had an Impact on You

There’s a movie meme going around Facebook that I thought I would just compile into a single post for the blog. Has any of your friends nominated you?

“Day 1 of the 10 day movie challenge. Post a photo from a film that had an impact on you (no explanation). Today I nominate…”

There’s lot of movies that have impacted me in some way and honestly, its kind of an internal marker for if I actually enjoyed the movie or not. It doesn’t have to be for some but I like the idea of thinking about or decompressing for a movie. I feel more satisfied, even in the end of all the decompressing I realize I didn’t like the film but I enjoyed the experience. It can happen.

Anyway, here are my picks.

moon thoughts

Haven’t been blogging much, been trying to organize my brain and life to try and make a good go of things. It’s been tough, I’m trying to grasp what little attention span I have after each day but its tough and I can’t trust myself to take care of the work without going to work. Meaning, I still don’t like the idea of being without formal work.

That doesn’t mean I haven’t been stretching into other side work. Still freelancing, just picked up another job in a field of work I am interested in. Trying to keep the sewing consistent, just bought $50 worth of fabric for no reason. *upside down smiley face emoji* I’m also planning on vlogging my work if only to keep me responsible or responsive to finishing work. Considering more schooling in something to push me out into different avenues of work.

The make up though, haven’t been this shook about something in so long.

Month Long Film Challenge: The Reviews

Last year in June, I watched a new movie every day of the entire month. This year I’d like to reprise that same challenge for the month of July. It was pretty good last year, I only managed to miss a few days worth of movies.

Seems simple enough, amended some rules to change up the movie list.

For reference, here was last year’s list.

**One Amendment**
I realized the phrase “South American” didn’t include Mexican features so a better way of putting that is “Latin American” features. I changed my rules list to better describe the movies I meant I wanted to watch.

WATCH RULES

  • 50/50 Comedies and Dramas; slot sub-genres as best as possible to comedy/drama guidelines
  • Can slot in 2 documentaries
  • At least 2 Latin American films
  • At least 5 any foreign language films
  • At least 7 films by a female director or by a female writer
  • A minimum of 15 shorts can slot in for 1 movie, music videos don’t count
  • No rewatching movies!

Month Long Movie Challenge: The Sequel

Last year in June, I watched a new movie every day of the entire month. This year I’d like to reprise that same challenge for the month of July.

Here is last years post about the challenge and the reviews.

It was pretty good last year, I only managed to miss a few days worth of movies. I am going to amend the rules as I want to throw the net wider but maybe in a different direction and by that I want to try and shoe horn some titles I’ve been meaning to watch but hadn’t gotten around to do it.

One of those rule changes is South American cinema, I don’t watch enough of it and I’d like to try. I am also including shorts since I can bang some of those out during a lunch hour since many are available online. I also noticed that you need movies that aren’t fiction, you start to really miss it so I am slotting in docs in case I need a palette cleanser.
