see how i'm faring in my instagram art project. spoiler alert: not great.Read More
it's going well so far. i'm trying not to judge myself. the hardest part is fitting the drawings into instagram's stupidly tiny square frames.
my instagram hashtag for the project is #100daysofaspirations
i hope you'll join me in the 100-day project. i mean, i loathe instagram, see my 3-part series here, but i'm making a new account just for this adventure.
MY ACTIVITY: 100 days of drawing my dreams, as in aspirations. my nightly dreams are too bizarre. so, that's suddenly a lot of "dreams." i have a feeling things like "hug a giraffe" and "effectively organize socks" might eventually appear.
but i love the idea of considering them, even the outlandish ones. getting them into your consciousness can only help make them a reality, right?
i'll post photos of the drawings each week along with a link to my instagram account, if you're into that sort of thing.
for comprehensive info on the procedure, see http://thegreatdiscontent.com/100days
if you decide to join, tell me your activity in the comments. see you Monday!
i sang this in my head a lot during vipassana.
"the measure of intelligence is the ability to change." - albert einstein
its powerful argument is essentially, “liz lemon is who the world wants you to be. leslie knope is who you should aim to be.”
truthfully, i watched both shows and didn’t think too deeply about either. they were just delicious, 20-minute, weekly laughter therapy sessions. (i know parks and rec is still on, i just cut down on tv)
if forced to choose, jack donaghy (30 rock) and ron swanson (parks and rec) were my favorite characters. (have i mentioned i don’t like following rules?)
but i recognize i’m probably an exception. i get her point and am not here as a hair-splitting monster. it’s unfortunate women reduce themselves, ala liz lemon, but it’s a conscious choice. every. single. time.
here’s the writer’s twitter account. i’d follow her if i had an account/could deal with the gross interface.
the 100 day challenge! i am so excited about this. here’s how it works:
- you choose an action to repeat daily for 100 days
- document each repetition with a photograph or video
- post them to instagram

i haven’t decided yet, but think i might need to dance or draw my dreams every day for 100 days. it doesn't start until april, so you've got time and thus, no excuses for not participating.
