Semi-annual review

We’re not quite halfway through the year, but it seems like as good a time as any to take stock.

I’m much happier and in a much better place than I was last fall, when I was last trying to write regularly. But there are still opportunities to be better. I’m doing some of the things that I care about, and letting others fall by the wayside.

I can’t put more hours in the day, but I can try to use them better. That means less television, YouTube videos and Twitch streams, and more time spent creating things.

I want to get back to writing on a regular basis. For now, that means challenging myself to write at least one blog post per week for the month of June. Eventually I’d like to get back to creative writing.

I want to start drawing and painting again. I’m hoping to pick up a sketchbook this week.

I want to take and share more photos. Here are a few that I took in the park this weekend.

As we head towards summer, where are you? Do you have things that you want to change, opportunities to be better?
