some plans

some things i want/should do this year, not so much resolutions as guidelines

move out of home- essential, and in the process of finding a place

get studio space- i need some room to work on ideas i have. i am being considered, for a place in kensington, if i don't get it, i will find another,

build more bikes, ride track- i rode on the track on sunday. it was one of the scariest things i've done on a bike. going round on a 45 degree sloped path is unnatural, but i could see how it would also be fun. it gets easier the faster you go. at one stage i sped up, and i could feel the centrifugal force sticking me to the ground,

make more custom stuff for bikes and motorbikes- i think that this is something i would like to do, design and make small boutique runs of specialty products that are sold through the internet

record more sounds- because it's really cool what happens when you record ambient sounds and then listen back to them

make linocuts and etchings again- i enjoyed doing this years ago, i'd like to give it a shot again

get a good digital camera- i'm jealous of all the crystal clear photo's i keep seeing. digital photo's taken with a good SLR look like magic.

travel, plan to get to europe.- so extermely dependent on my finances, but definitely high on my list of things i'd like to do

enter design competitions in australia- i've got to keep my hand in, so to speak.

get out more. spend less time spectating/internetting, more time creating- i am so guilty of this. i think i spend as much time thinking of doing things, as actually doing them, and it's not very productive.

read books again- I used to be a voracious reader, but when i started uni, that gradually stopped. I think my thought processes have changed since then, and i think i might be advantaged by reading more.

Hey congratulations on graduating, you've made yourself some damn fine guidelines to keep yourself focused.

When you join the digital SLR gang, come out and play with us
