I see lots of new Years Journals popping up, so I want to join too! ( Haha I wrote this like a week ago already but didn't have any time to finish it |D So I'm rather late... )
How are you all doing?
Looking back at 2017 a lot has happened and changed for me. Many hard times especially relating to my family and at the end of the year to my work place but also many good things happened so I'm not sure which part was stronger. In my mind obviously the bad times are stronger but that is always like this I guess xD
Nevertheless there were also a lot of good times and now starting in 2018 these times are certainly more persistent again! This year will have a lot of change but also chances for me! Around February my long distance boyfriend is finally going to move in with me in Germany which I am looking forward to soooo much already!
That of course means he has to find a job around here and we will have to move eventually as my current apartment is too small for us both on a long term.
Art wise I'll try to push myself to draw again, I made something like a "Doodle bullet Journal" where I want to doodle in, make all kind of lists and creative things to work on. I hope it will inspire me to just doodle and not feel so pressured to make amazing art every time I pick up a pencil but more do it just for fun and to relax. I'd like to show some of my pages but since they are more like doodle stuff I'm unsure if I shall upload it here or on my sketch/doodle account. Raika-chanSketchies
What do you think?
I know it's really silent on this account so I don't know if it's a good idea to upload more doodle stuff on here too to make it more active or to keep it clean and with less activity. Are there many active watchers left aside from my friends? (
Some examples from my doodle journal
I also thought to maybe post this stuff on my art tumblr instead and not on deviantArt but I don't think everyone is following that one either... -> raikachanart.tumblr.com/
Some more of my new years resolutions are to loose some weight ( I'm using a calorie counter for that and am learning to cook better and healthier), to be more optimistic and try to learn and improve myself!
What are your new years resolutions?
