    OFF-TOPIC Turning 30 this Sunday

    Ok you're gonna laugh I'm gonna have a cross-stitching party. I picked a relevant/related pattern for each person attending (bf and kids, bff and her bf) that they can take home. Adding some walking tacos and drinks to the mix and just hangout at home. I made my custom pattern special so it's a...

    OFF-TOPIC Turning 30 this Sunday

    Actually, I am! I am taking my art seriously and I'm going for a certificate in painting. I might even go to school to complete the bachelor and maybe become an art teacher/therapist. I...was joking

    OFF-TOPIC Turning 30 this Sunday

    Hold on but 5 years is plenty of time to give yourself a lot of sports results, a-la-Biff from Back to the future. Skip process, IMMEDIATE RESULTS (?)

    OFF-TOPIC Turning 30 this Sunday

    Thanks. I thought of that since I like painting but I’m not sure what. I’d want it to have meaning. Actually now the whole kindergarten palm thingy came to mind. “On this day the following people where here” and a few palms and a little paw (my cat). That’s not bad. “I hate sand, coarse, and...

    OFF-TOPIC Turning 30 this Sunday

    I'm gonna be 3 (decades) or quinceañera, for the second time. This Sunday. Got nobody else here in Chicago besides my BFF, her bf, and my boyfriend and his kids. I was hyped when the month began but idk what to do. I wanted it to feel special since it's a bit of an under-attended milestone...

    Which are some books to get my feet wet into ... how do I call this

    This sounds great, I am artistic! I'm half-way through Atlas Shrugged right now. Loved that little passage I'm adding these three to the list. Thanks so much!

    The science of making habits stick

    Because I made it thinking about gifting it to someone, I just went straight to town, no stage fright. :clench:

    Looking for team management tool (time, hours, skills)

    I second the Trello recommendation. When I volunteered at the UNA Chapter we used one called Asana. Not sure if it was free or they had discount for being a non-profit, but look it up. I remember it being pretty neat. Does Google Suite (is it still called that?) not have something like that...

    Best Way to Purchase and Transfer a Private Domain

    I'll go with the last two because it's the ones I've had experience with 2. I second, third and forth the Namecheap recommendation. They're true to their name (domains are $15 a year) and they've helped me transfer domains through their online chat. They will give you step by step instructions...

    The science of making habits stick

    Because if I don't make it a regular habit I'll keep procrastinating on it forever, like other things that I know are good for me and get me close to my goals. I'd paint something like three times a year like I've been doing the last decade. Unless I'm not fully understanding what you mean. I...

    The science of making habits stick

    Nailed it :'( Accountability hasn't worked for me except when it comes to stay alive and keep my job and self-sustainability at all costs while I save because I'm by myself in the US and I don't want to go back home; my parents are sorta toxic without intending to, and as much as I love...

    The science of making habits stick

    Taking Oil Painting 101 last semester was definitely a kick into getting my gears moving some. I got home and made a few things. Not just that but being around people that want to get better at art too, getting and giving feedback (none of my friends/acquaintances here do art, I signed up for...

    The science of making habits stick

    Amen... it is 100% about how I feel while I'm painting. Part of it is probably to push through the discomfort knowing I won't like what I paint for a long time and just love the 2 hours of joy I got. My planner is full of doodles, the real struggle start when sitting to make something "serious"...

    The science of making habits stick

    I didn't get offended, sorry if that sounded defensive I didn't mean it that way. Also when I meant I want to be a painter I was just saying it as "someone who paints" not really interested in being known or anything. I can also tell how irrational it sounds which only makes it more frustrating...

    The science of making habits stick

    Thank you fellow artist <3 The "A problem we face is, we can picture what we want to create, but our skills might not be up to creating it - yet." reminded me of Ira Glass' "The Gap" ; if you haven't listened to it, you're in for a treat. It's pretty short too and mind blowing (well, it was for...

    The science of making habits stick

    Life isn't a Google Images Quote. My boyfriend said the same thing. He works out every day, is part of who he is. Kinda like the Quora person describes it feels once something is a habit. It's a habit they have ingrained and it's become part of their identity. They have to force themselves to...

    The science of making habits stick

    Thanks, yes that is the point. I do post them on an Insta I made for that purpose but I don't have much of an audience. Maybe I'll just start posting them to my mom's feed, I'm guaranteed to get compliments! :p Edit: AH!~ You now made me remember one of the points on a book I read recently...

    The science of making habits stick

    Hi all, looking for some support as usual... I figured a lot of you have read/heard and looked into how it works to develop/break habits, from a scientific perspective. I've read the "The Power of Habit" and some other texts related to it. So, I want to paint, right? I want to be a painter...
