Summertime Bucket lists

Almost two months ago, I got a new job.  It always takes me forever to transition into these types of new situations, and it seems like any time I do, everything else comes to a halt for a while.  It took me until pretty much this week to start itching again for more, and now I am going crazy looking for some sort of creative outlet outside of work. Lately I have been feeling really creatively stunted and I’m fearing I’m becoming a worse designer for it.  I’m stuck in a bland spot.

Since I’m working fewer hours and my income is less tight this summer it is the perfect time to come up with a summer bucket list, in order to pressure myself into doing awesome things as much as possible this summer.  This of course means that I have to go to coffee shops about it and try to write a bucket list but then get distracted and doodle instead and only write down a list of like 6 things. Because of my forgetfulness/ADD this is almost definitely going to have to be a working list for now.  Hopefully putting myself through these new experiences will inspire me to be less “blah”!

  1. I’m a fan of yearly bucket lists. I make a list of 10 impossible goals for the year and then surprise myself when I actually do them. It’s good to write it down but I totally endorse the doodling. It’s a great creative outlet.
