Deciding My Next Year-Long Project

There are only twenty days left in 2016! I’ve been thinking a lot about what I’ll do next year after finishing up my 2016 photo journal and honestly I’m not totally sure. If you’ve been keeping up with me this year, you’ll know just how much I love a good creative challenge, and this photo journal has been the perfect outlet for me. Next year I won’t be doing another photo journal so I’m trying to figure out what creative project I should pursue instead.

For those of you who don’t know, I have a blog (well, sort of. I haven’t written in it since the end of 2015) so one option is to return to blogging on a weekly basis. I like this idea because it means I can continue writing and taking photographs throughout the year, but I am mostly put-off by the idea of blogging because it has become so intrinsically linked with #spon and #ad deals. I’m just not into that, you know?

As for other options, I’m afraid I don’t have any idea of what sort of project I could see myself doing for the whole year. One of my goals is to be able to drive (i.e. get an automatic car and a UK driving license) and another one is to get paid. The latter is pretty vague, mostly because I’m still not sure what sort of job I would like to pursue. It’s tough enough to figure out what year-long project I want to do, let alone decide on a career path! I may be twenty-five and have two cats and a husband, but I can assure you that I’m still figuring a lot of stuff out, haha.

I’m definitely the worrying type so any opportunity to think about things long before I need to means I’ve got plenty to entertain me. Maybe I ought to sit down and make a list of all of the careers/industries I like and see where that takes me? Honestly it’s better than what I’m doing now because at least it’s a step in the right direction.

Anyway, just thought I’d jot down some of my thoughts on my next year-long project. Oh, and the sunset was absolutely stunning today. See you tomorrow!
