Looking Ahead to 2021

Posted by Kim on January 1, 2021, 9:00am

Welcome, baby 2021! I'm so looking forward to finding out what you grow up to be. May this year be a great one! (or at least a better one...)

What's my big, over-arching RPR goal for this year?

I'm going to experiment with ways to add real time, interactive avatar and map support to the site. I'm not ready to promise that we'll get this yet, but it's a really sincere goal and I'll be trying all kinds of experiments to see what the most likely techniques will be to get us there.

What theme are you setting for yourself for 2021? What goals do you have for yourself? Tell us in the comments! :D

Looks like big new things are coming to RP Repository!
  • What theme are you setting for yourself for 2021?
My theme is ‘Consolidate & Renewal’ in both RL & RP. I have way too many projects in both that have lingered too long on the back burner. If things in life stay settled, I may get some of it done.
  • What goals do you have for yourself?
I plan on living healthier in 2021. I also want to get started on those projects mentioned and get some old VHS camcorder tapes and 8mm movie film digitised before they are lost to the deterioration of time.

May 2021 be a year where we get the ship righted with this plague and start the world down the path of recovery. Stay well and happy everyone! 😃

Not sure what "Interactive avatar" means, but it sounds so amazing! <.<

I'm gonna be a bit vague on what the avatars will be until I'm much further into experiments XD

1) Not sure what an interactive avatar is but I'm so ready for it
2) 2021 baby is cute.

RP goals? To move past hurt feelings and dropped partnerships and continue to find my spark.

IRL? Keep finding myself.

Map Support? Interesting if it means what I’m assuming.

New Years Goal:
Write 1 million words

happy new year! in 2021 i want to do things i’ve wanted for a while but never had the courage to (dye my hair and get a piercing), start reading more, learn more about astrology and tarot and i think i might start a temperature blanket (it’s the same principle that Sanne mentioned, just with the temperature of each day at a certain time) but i think i might do it with something else; i’m not sure yet!

Hmm, I haven't firmly settled on any goals yet. A lot of goals I've set in previous years are along the lines of "Get better at art" but that's such a fuzzy goal to meet. What does 'better' mean.

But can I ask - what is interactive avatar and map support?

I'm don't know what is meant by "interactive avatar" as there's a number of things that could mean, but sounds cool in any case. ^^

It takes a weird amount of courage to speak up, say hi to people and forge new connections. To openly enjoy and share hobbies and interests—even something as simple as a song! It also takes a weird amount of courage to move on instead of being rooted by denial; I've always believed change is no one's fault and doesn't have to be bad, but for some reason thought I was the exception to this.

So, this year is about being braver and stepping out of my comfort zone! I still have a lot of work ahead of me, but I hope I continue to take risks, whether that means opening up more, accepting change, or even taking the initiative to make change. ^_^

I have a few goals for 2021. :) That includes finishing my internship and transitioning to a paid job, bringing my final project to a useable stage and releasing it to the public, and finishing my 1-year glucose blanket!

(What's a glucose blanket?)
I track my daily average glucose levels and write them down. I assigned colors to 6 different ranges. For each daily average glucose level, I knit 1 row of my blanket in its assigned color. After 365 rows, I have a full sized blanket that tells a one year long personal story about my diabetes!

I want to get a job. Maybe not in th4 career I want, but... I'm really, really tired of the stress of unemployment.

My goal is to try and draw a piece a day, and also to try and work through my mountain of ideas to whittle it down a little bit this year ^^;

The avatar and map support sounds interesting, excited to see what you have in plan for that :o

My goal is finish the last draft of my book and publish it, and get the second draft of at least two of my others done!

But my most important goal is my health in 2021. I'll be working on my slightly high blood pressure and stuff. Goodbye salt. 😂

I just want to get better in my academic standards and get closer to my friends... Yeah, that's pretty much it.

I hope that I can take time to draw more this year. Last year was an unexpected hit that I wasn't really prepared for.

So I hope this year, I can find the mentality to sit down and draw more than I did last year at the very least.

Maybe my goal is to keep chugging along like always, but that's no fun, so my "goals" are to build a car with my pa, who's getting old, we never did it when I was a kid.

I mainly have two goals, find a roommate to not be living with my parent, and manage to snag a good long lasting relationship.
