'Ideal Life' list

18th July 2016

It's been really long since I felt like writing about something!

Bobby's list

I have been really motivated by somethings Bobby Chiu said in the StoryboardArt interview. He is one of the most talented and respectable people I've followed. He said, figure out how you'd want your life to be, ideally. Paint a picture of that, or write about it, and work towards that. For a few moments I was pretty blank - what I want out of life keeps fluctuating.
It was only later today I got down to putting it on paper. I made two columns - one with things I want, and one with things I don't want out of my life. It isn't very concrete, but it's something to work towards.

I realized a few things that are missing which I can definitely work on - like making my environment more creative, striving towards being a better artist, and travelling even more. And I was happy to notice that I am following a few of the things on the list already, like leading a vegan and zero waste lifestyle. I haven't fully achieved this, but I'm definitely getting closer.

I am going to try maintaining a new hobby - writing a short review of each film that I watch - whether it's interesting or not. This way I'll learn to analyze films better, and understand what works and what doesn't.

Today I watched a horror film called 'The Witch'. Arvind mentioned it had won many awards and we wanted to have a late night movie. Will write about it soon!

If you feel a bit lost, make that list, and you'll get right back on the horse. That's all for now! Cheers! :)
