2017 already feels...different.

I've started 2017 with no 365, no set plan on where I head next. A sign of stagnation or a sign of something different?

I guess this post is technically the first thing I've made this year. Then maybe, just maybe, I can have some time to take some new photos. (I also released a new episode of The 365 podcast this week) 

I threw some top ten lists on Facebook for those who are my REAL friends just to get that out of my system, but I'm uninterested in looking back at last year anymore.  I want to move forward, which is why I'm a little nervous that not doing anything akin to a 365 is resting on my haunches.  Half of me feels like ditching the 365 was a growth move, but it was such a habit that it is difficult to shake especially at the turn of the year.  

My mom and I went to a sushi restaurant a few days ago and talked about our goals for the year. We decided that a year from that day, we should meet back at that sushi place and bring what we've done in 2017.  She had some ideas of what her goals were, but I couldn't really answer the question. I have a lot of things I want to be better at, it's hard to focus on just one thing.

Maybe get in better shape? (no one has had that goal before) Maybe learn to paint? Write more?

Really the only thing I can think of is just do keep doing what I'm doing. Focus on Anna, work, and then take good photos and videos along the way.  I don't want to force something new, I just want to get as good as I can at the things I have already before me. So, I guess that's it.

My goal for 2017 is to keep on keepin' on.

When I'm eating a sushi a year from now, I'll show my mom how well I kept on, I guess. 



While I was writing this, I came up with an idea for a Youtube series will take a huge amount of work to get done.  There's a lot to and I will probably releasing episodes sporadically. I don't want to talk about too much yet, because I'm sure the project will morph as I work on it.

For now, go subscribe to my podcast, and follow me on Instagram.
