“She’s the creative one,” my parents would regularly say to me and anyone who asks about their children. I heard this so much growing up that I started doing that thing we’re socialized to do with compliments; shrug and deny them while thanking the person for their graciousness. However, is it really a compliment to call someone creative? Or is it just pointing out a trait that you notice? Also, is creativity a muscle you have to practice or you lose it?
I’m posting this because I have to post SOMETHING. I’m sick of making excuses for not completing my creative projects. Let’s see how I did on my 2018 creative resolutions shall we?
I kept my 2018 resolutions because it was important to me this year. Once you reach your mid twenties (I’m 25 now), you realize that there is no structure or person pushing you or setting goals for you. Not school. Not work. It’s all you. Nothing teaches you this lesson and makes you question why your life choices more than having to wake up every 2 hours in the night to make sure your 5 pound puppy doesn’t soil his bed and have to sleep in it. Now, that’s what I call
music responsibility. Alright, let’s get into the resolutions. These are just a few of them examined, but I actually didn’t do too badly.
