I am super super super excited about 2021. To the point that I've decided no matter what it brings, I am going to make it the most epic year of my life. How, you ask?

First, I've already signed up for a few challenges - in my mind. XD I am going to do numerous projects and hope that they all good amazingly. However, I know those challenges will go better if I have people to share them with and while I am not 100% certain how to do so just yet, I will figure it out (whether it be a facebook group, a flickr group, maybe bribing blitze for my own 'forum' on hp for it (like that'd happen lol), or something else entirely) If you are interested in doing one of these with me though - poke me and I'd happily welcome you in and we can bounce ideas off of each other to find the best way to do it.

CHALLENGES:

1. 52 Hikes - I haven't hiked much since 2014 (haha pretty much at all, until today. XD But I hiked today so I can say much. xD) and I want to get back into it. So me and my kids signed up for 52 Hikes of 2021. I am super excited, I have a few things planned out already and I am hoping to also do a few meetups with a few of my HP friends on these hikes since they put me near the borders of some other states and some are even in other states (and maybe I can even meet their dogs! -excited-)

2. 12 Months of Dixie (12 months of -your pet here-) - We have had Dixie since we brought her home in May and her birthday is quickly approaching and I realized that due to me putting all of my attention and focus into my job from March - November, I really don't have many pictures of her. It's heartbreaking. I am going to change that this year and mix it with my love of photography (err, the love I used to have.... I am going to find it again darn it) and pick out what I feel is the best shot of her for the month. I may do themes each month (like 'Shoot From the Hip' shots, 'black and white', ect...) but I am undecided yet. It depends on who all joins me and stuff.

3. 52 Weeks. I used to carry my camera around everywhere. It stayed on my at all times, not I rarely touch it - I find myself picking it up one time a month or less. I want to change that. Desperately. So I am going to challenge myself to one photo a week. I may do themes here too, same goes as the thing above.

 

Second because I have complete and total confidence that this game is amazing and it will be epic! We have so much to look foward to this year and we are going to move forward together and it's exciting.

What are you looking forward to in 2021? Are you excited about anything in particular? Do you want to join me for one my above challenges? ORRRRRR maybe even have challenges you are doing yourself? Let's talk about all the good stuff.

All I've got is the upcoming baby. Which is part looking forward to, part terrified about how the adjustment will go for my family. So come February when he comes, my only challenge is to focus my attention of my family!

I love the idea of challenging oneself to do something once (or more) per week for 2021.  So I decided to do one of my own.


52 ART PIECES: I'm going to finish 52 completed art pieces this year.  
I'm aiming for a good blend of my favourites: painted abstracts, ink washes, watercolours, and digital paintings.
I'm also aiming to increase my sketching time and art journaling as I feel it greatly helps me be artistic to do so.


As for things I'm looking forward to in 2021 - riding Jane!!!

OMG Neke! I would absolutely love to see our art pieces! Are you a member of the HP Facebook Group?


 


Maybe I should just make it 52 Weeks of Anything and then make a new post in the FB group weekly for everyone to share their stuff? I am just super excited.

A few 2021 goals for me:


1. Less time on the social media. And just on my phone in general.


2. More hiking, traveling.


3. More using my camera, again, NOT my phone. Relearning all that I learned in photography class :P

@Pants - I am having to relearn everything again after not really using it since 2015. -dies- I also bought new DSLR in 2018 that I haven't got everything set up on yet (no calibration, nada) so I have to try to remember how to do that. If you want a buddy for that I am down. I need someone I can do to when I cannot remember and feel dumb. lol

I would love that! My camera is a nicer one than a point and shoot but not quite a DSLR. However it does have a lot of functions LIKE a DSLR. -Another goal: relearn/train myself enough to warrant buying a DSLR in the future ?

So I made a group for all of use to join and share whatever on FB - if that's the way people want to go. I will try to do something here as well... somehow.

I feel the whole picking up your camera! @Pants I think that's a goal for me too. I barely touched my camera since the pandemic and I got new lenses for Christmas... So I'd like to use my camera more in 2021.


 


Another goal would to secure a job for the Forest Service and move. This would also contribute to taking more photos with my camera.


 


These challenges sound like a good idea, I might give them a whirl or do something similar!

I decided to join along an existing group https://www.clondon.me/blog/52weeks2021 for the 52 weeks challenge. Primary as I'm pretty blah about it at the moment (I know, it's the feels and anxiety for me...)

As for the the 12 months challenge I think I'm still alone in that so far.

I could try and join you on the 12 months challenge, Con! It may be a different pet each month since I have multiple. xD


It's kinda hard to do the 52 weeks challenge here when there's a bunch of snow on the ground for 3-4 months now. We don't really hike much during this time of the year lol.
