– progress of month no. 7 –
You might think that staying at home isn’t good for the day zero project and while it is true that some goals become temporarily not achievable, there’s more time for working on other goals. Check out my whole list of goals here; there are plenty that can be done indoors!
16. Add three songs to the 3/month-playlist every month [7/33]
I embedded the playlist above with my three songs of March. When I heard the first song for the first time, which is in Swiss German, I missed Austria a lot. Even though there’s a difference between the dialect of Vorarlberg and Swiss, it brought back many memories.
4. Optional – replace the goals that are no longer doable [1/3]
Life evolves and so do goals and interests, which is only a good thing. (Yes, I’m quoting myself from two months ago.) That’s why I put this option in the project, to give myself three chances to review the list and edit where necessary. First review, check. I replaced some things that I wasn’t too interested in doing anymore by new ideas I had in the last months.
23. Make drawings or paintings [2/10]
I used some of my indoor time to paint and play around with the colours. There are some things I’d like to improve about the painting, but in general I like it.
39. Do the 30-day yoga challenge
Another thing I started doing now we have to stay home as much as possible is the 30-day yoga challenge. I only did five days so far, but it’s a good start!
57. Take a class on Futurelearn
More in the category stay home and dance: I started taking a class on Futurelearn on artificial intelligence, as it could be useful for my job.
29. Share parts of my journal on the blog [5/15]
I shared my setup for April: dreaming of the waves, dancing in the living room and enjoying the sun from the balcony. Stay home and dance. You can find the article here.
32. Invent a game
It’s more a puzzle than a game, but I would say that also counts. It’s a work in progress, so hopefully more on it next month.
55. Learn three other skills that are useful for my career [2/3]
For my birthday I got a drawing tablet and so far I’ve only tried using it twice. Still a lot of learning left! Both for creative projects as for my work, I think it’ll be a useful skill.
27. Make different series of articles on the blog [1/5]
This is one of the new goals I added, to create series of articles on a specific topic on my blog. I already did a first series, that is completely finished now: ESC-diary in retrospect. I already have another idea as well, that you’ll probably see soon on here.
