Only a few more days until 30 During 30 is over.
Which is a good and bad thing. Good because December is a lovely month. I am looking forward to my birthday, several events, and Christmas.
Bad, because let’s face it. I’m not going to make all the items on the 30 During 30 list.

I just got busy this year. Which is also a good thing. I’ve wrote more this year, creatively, than I’ve wrote in my whole lifetime. I’m talking working on stories from 8am to 5pm, 7 days a week, and being frustrated that I couldn’t write more.
‘Cause if I’m honest, one of my biggest lifetime bucket list items is to write the best story I can write.
So, even though I kinda lost at 30 During 30, I’m still winning at other things.
And, I think this experiment is also a really good lesson…it’s hard to decide in Dec/Jan everything you want to try to do all year long. Although I didn’t pick outrageous and travel intense items this year, a lot of my schedule does center around my husband’s job and what we feel like doing when he’s off.
Making yourself do things, even things you things you wanna do, can feel like homework.
Take the AFI Passions list. I love movies. I watch a lot of movies anyways. I wanted to discover passionate and/or romantic movies I hadn’t seen before. And I did find a few great ones. However, the definition of passionate/romantic is different for other people, and I also found a lot of TERRIBLE ones, which turned the bucket list into a headache.
And, also, maybe I defined the list too strictly. When I listed “do more fanart” I meant painting. But the fan perler art and the fan photography I’ve been doing could also be considered “fanart”…and if that’s the case, I could have crossed it off the list months ago. But I just have preconceived notions of how I define the task.
Anyhow, I’m going to try and knock out a few more items, just to say I did.
Then, I guess this blog will magically turn into a “general” bucket list.
I haven’t decided what to do about the Instagram account…maybe turn it into a weekly update?
