Spring starts Thursday, March 19th, and runs through Saturday, June 20th. But now's the time to get ready for Spring!
What is Spring Cleaning? Well, you make a list of projects, in this thread here, and then when Spring starts, you start working on them! There's also an updates thread, where you post how your projects are doing, and encourage one another.
R1. Read Literature (and take notes) Tag: Reading, Writing, School Difficulty: Medium Length: Medium-Long Steps: Read literature. Jot down roughly what's going on. Expand. Incorporate into notes for intro of thesis. (Consider separating by subject type and consolidate notes accordingly.) Progress: None
R2. Write introduction Tag: Reading, Writing, School Difficulty: Hard Length: Medium-Long Steps: Read literature. Get good understanding. Reference other intros to know how to go about it (short time). Note sections. Make outline of what needs to be written. And... write. Progress: None
R3. Computation Tag: Math, School Difficulty: Hard Length: However long it takes; Medium-Long? Steps: Try different methods. See which ones work, and which ones are better. Examine stats texts. Progress: None
C1. Contact Manufacturer Tag: Computer, Social Difficulty: Depends on how I'm feeling and how they are about it all Length: I don't know Steps: Have info ready. Then call or email. Just... do it. Progress: I did... they weren't very helpful. Not writing this off mainly because I can contact them again, but I'm getting skeptical to if they can help me, unless I can get someone who knows more about computers and not someone reading from a script.
C2. Sort Photos Tag: Computer, Life Difficulty: Easy Length: Long Steps: Sort photos in my computer photo albums. (When able.) Progress: None
H1. Sort clothes Tag: Life Difficulty: Easy Length: Medium-Long Steps: Note where everything else and what I have. Sort where it makes sense when needed. Ties into next task. Progress: None
H2. Compile clothes to donate Tag: Life Difficulty: Easy Length: Medium Steps: Ties into first task. Take clothes to donate and set them in one pile. Donate when time is appropriate. Now is not due to the pandemic response. Progress: None
H3. Sort books Tag: Life Difficulty: Easy Length: Medium Steps: Sort books; finish re-sorting them. Try to empty one box. Progress: None
H4. Sort House Tag: Life Difficulty: Easy Length: Medium Steps: Clean up the clutter. Do it in sections. Progress: I did some cleaning during a spree earlier in the week. I'd hardly call my house sorted, but it's a little better.
(3/24) - I set aside an hour and did a bunch! Mostly, I wanted to clear up the living room so that I could properly position my desk so that I can have a space for work and a space for play. Still haven't really decided which will be which yet, though. Anyway! This involved moving some boxes to a different room, relocating some boxes, and reallocating some old notes/folders/textbooks to a different box. I managed to reduce a box this way! The empty box is now lying unceremoniously in my overcrowded closet where I'll probably remember it later. (Note to self: Return to that box and go through those notes; there's some redundancies that I can get rid of to make more room.) +10 space, -1 bedroom space, +1 piano setup motivation, +2 papercuts!
H5. Clean House Tag: Life Difficulty: Easy Length: Medium Steps: Floors (vacuum, sweep), bathroom, windows, behind stuff (especially in kitchen), counters, stove Progress: None
H6. Clean and season cast-iron pan Tag: Life Difficulty: Easy Length: Short Steps: Just... do it. Scrub. Clean. Season (oil and bake). Progress: None
H7. Sew belt loops... or just donate those pants Tag: Life Difficulty: Medium Length: Short Steps: Decide if it's worth donating. Get materials, or bring it in to a tailor. Progress: None
M1. Learn Python Tag: Programming, Career Difficulty: Hard Length: Continuous Steps: Practice! Install (when able) and try it alongside scripts, unless higher-priority task is needed. Progress: None
M2. Read that Play Tag: Recreation Difficulty: Easy Length: Short Steps: Yeah. Progress: None
M3. Learn to Crochet Tag: Recreation, Arts and Crafts Difficulty: Medium Length: Undetermined Steps: Basically, I should at least get it down to being able to do each of the steps and being able to read a simple pattern. Once I do that, and possibly a little test project, I'll consider it learned and leave the rest to practice. Progress: Re-learned chaining. Getting the hang of crocheting. I think I'm missing some nuances. There's more steps.
#1 Plushie Makeover Type: Craft project Summary: Transformation of a thrift shop princess Luna MLP plushie. Progress: - Wireframe (DONE) - Polymer clay pieces (Mask Started, Talons Not Started.) - Hack Luna apart with seam splitter (Pending) - Paint (Pending) - Yarn wefts (Pending)
#2 Caption This! Story Type: Writing + Art Summary: Next shiny new CT! story. Advance that plot like you've always wanted to! Live the dream! Progress: - Outline (DONE) - Write the story (DONE) - Edit the story (In Progress) - Draw a selection of scenes (DONE)
Uhh, not a big list this time. XD I'm having some mouse issues, so I don't feel confident in taking on a bunch of art projects at the moment.
Considering I got NOTHING done from my 2019 list, I feel like I should just not pretend this is going to work, sit this one out, and just pop in and be like "Bonus! I actually did something!" and surprise you all.
Spring Cleaning again! \ o / Mostly random art things here, and still using my vague titles format. This year, though, I've divvied up the NTWF drawing quests into game categories, so it's slightly less vague, and maybe people can bug me about them more easily. xD (I also kept a lot of old unfinished projects on here, just so I can remember the ideas exist. xD)
All unmarked quests have a basic status of Not Started. All quests with a strike-through have been Completed!
Main Art Quests Finish birthday card (Status: Sketched) Finish logo (Status: Putting together a bunch of new, different layouts) Night Surf (Status: I'm literally just being nitpicky about the finishing pixels right now.) Umbrella watercolor Soft Glow (Status: Yes, this is still on here. I swear I will finish it someday. >O)
Other Art Quests The Wordsmage Patchwork Heart Watercolor Tea for Monsters Drafts Over the Years
NTWF Drawing Quests - Mafia III Stuff Beautiful Day - Medieval Stuff Dust Coil Comic Aldrich and Maia Comic With Shaun Four Panel Blink Coast is Clear - Hero City Stuff Limited Edition Augh, My Eyes! - Wrighton Stuff CAPTAAAAIIIN - Naelus Stuff Q&A Yard Sale Paperwork - Crossovers Cupcakes! Poker Night
Writing Quests The Jig is Up Quince and the Arguing Folks Pending (Status: Still on the back burner. But I still wanted it on the list anyway. xD)
Miscellaneous Quests Stay Healthy (Status: I'M TRYING) Sort Clothes Bureau Hang Up Calendar, Poster Copy Favorite Recipes into Notebook Read Books #1 and #2!
Alrighty, got a list going mostly centered around job stuff, since it'd be cool if I got one sometime soon. A lot of these tasks have kind of a domino effect on each other (want to apply for art job? have an updated website. need an updated website? draw new art that reflects art job description), so I listed them in loose order.
I may add more as I remember other tasks, but these at least are some biggies that I'd really like to tackle sooner than later.
Misc.: -Call counseling office -Email old advisor about jobs
Art: -Seeds of Change -Ocean idea -Jon and Zathandria -Jon dual pic -HTTYD anniversary thing???
