A Look Ahead at 2020

Posted by Kim on January 1, 2020, 1:00am

2020-new.png Ahhh, a whole new decade for us to make our mark on! Welcome baby 2020. I can't wait to see what you're going to grow up to bring us. :)

Truth be told, I'm still a bit winded from the INTENSE push to finish Operation Audacious Phoenix and bring RPR 2.0 to the world -- it's a little bit hard for me to imagine new, massive goals for this year that aren't extensions of that project, such as wrapping up all the planned features that didn't quite make it to launch.

But here's what I know I'd like to focus on, outside of programming: Community Events

Both IC and OOC community events, some old, some new, all aimed at creating new connections and understandings between us. :) This year, we'll be trying out all kinds of new site-wide events. If they go well, some of them might become new traditions for us!

As an exciting aside, I also have a plan to try some very new "puzzle" formats for Epic Week this year, that should widen the number of people who feel they can participate -- or at least allow us all to participate in different ways.

What theme are you setting for yourself for 2020? What goals do you have for yourself? Tell us in the comments! :D

I'm going to keep creating more characters and making new freinds. Restart my musical career and keep up with my poems,songwriting.

For the first time ever my life is actually on track, so I'm gonna try and keep that train going for 2020 lmao

There’s a lot for me. It’s mainly furthering my way in college, so I can get where I want to be afterwards: writing books. I’m a creative writing major, and putting myself into a hard field to keep up with outside of campus life - maybe not as hard as an artist’s, but hard enough. But writing is my passion, and my family supports me in my choice, so I’m going for it. So this year, it’s gonna be focusing on my classes, and writing whenever I can, because even now, I can start working on my senior project. I’m already 7 chapters into the book I’ve got planned, and I started just last month! :D

You’re doing so well, Kim! We love you so much, and I wish you the best year yet! <3

I am so excited to see what RPR brings in 2020, this new update is so amazing and everything that contuses to happen is so mind blowing.

For me, 2020 holds the promise of accomplishing a lifelong dream. When I was born my aunt took a hold of my hand and said. "they are going to be an artist." She was, it made sense she would want someone to follow in her footsteps. From that day on I was always supported and provided the ability to practice and find my way artistically. It makes me feel alive, it is what I love to do. For a while it seemed like an impossible dream as the more I learned about the world the more I saw how hard it was to make your way as an artist. I went to school for business, I learned about curation but not really about practice. I began to leave it behind...

But, now, I have been making the effort to make a living as an artist and learn the marketing required to fuel my soul in a field I have always wanted to be in. It's going to be hard, but it will be worth every drop of blood, sweat and tears. Every day I work to be better and take one step closer. I can see how much I have improved in 2019 just by doing my best each and every day.

For RPR, I plan to try to write again, to overcome my hangups, anxiety and shyness. To let myself open up and not let the past cloud my present. To allow new and wonderful interactions happen instead of hiding away behind a wall of quiet.

Well, I plan to try and handle my anxiety and depression better. I have been hanging out with friends IRL that are a positive influence on me. I also have the RPR which has not only helped my roleplaying but helped me come out of my shell a little bit more. I made some good friends on here. Thank you, Kim, for creating the RPR and working so hard on Operation Audacious Phoenix. It is so amazing and you did such a fantastic job. I don't think I could ever thank you enough for all you have done for us all.

A new era in life will be happening for me. Job search and other income opportunities will commence right away, and we will move house in March to hopefully a permanent place that has the NBN so I’m not dealing with this turn-of-the-century internet connection.

For RPR I hope it gets back to smooth Stable operation as soon as possible and the great things of 2020 are realised and the celebration continues through the year!

I'm excited to see what sort of community events will come up for the site in 2020! And I'm excited to attempt to be a part of them all! :D

For me, my 2020 theme is: connections! I'm going to try to connect more with people on a one-on-one basis, try to get over my shyness that keeps me from approaching people, try to just connect with my feelings and intuition during various situations.

As for goals the major one is....write!

Welcome to 2020, everyone.

I really don't have any themes really. My goal is to become a better person, and going further with my career path. So when I have children I can tell them that I made something of myself. :)
