This post is a WIP, will probably edit/add stuff until 2017 ends.

ordered by priority:
  • git gud (draw, paint, ink, carve, pixel)
  • eat fruit regularly, preferably daily (apples, bananas)
  • waste way less time scrolling through twitter feeds (limit to 15m per day max. or 1h per week on sundays or something)
  • take more time working with all those art instruction books I've accumulated
  • take at least some time reading the GDR and being more active in forums (been pretty much ignoring everything and everyone for most of 2017)
  • take time to get back into C64 coding/pixelling, even if it's just one day per month
  • revisit learning CommonLisp and maybe finally start writing some code again
C64 coding is low on priority because I fear it will consume my mind so much again that I'll end up spending more time on it than what would be healthy(once my mind bites into technical stuff it usually can not rest until it's solved and optimized and I end up with insomnia which then negatively affects all other areas of life, especially my ActLikeAHalfwayNormalSocialHumanBeing skill goes downhill fast) and that it would eat too much into my "git gud" practice. Mind seems to already be obsessed with the art crap now and probably can't handle more than one obsession simultaneously.

I think just making goals be public here is pretty good for helping me be on track. It's like being held pseudo accountable XD

So far, for me for 2018
- release a new game (probably Isle of the Damned)
- write one new song per month (inspired by 0xDB's daily drawing)
- continuing to git gud at drawing and digital painting (i waste too much time in my design iterations due to not being able to get the ideas out of my head onto paper)
- restart work on my racing game
- start work on a new RPG (probably a remake/sequel to my rpg The Griffon Legend)
- I, as well, am looking for more ways / trying to be more active on GDR (maybe I'll try to post once a week or something - screenshot saturday?).
