Although I am not very good at keeping diaries, I am doing so in order to serve as a reminder to myself to aim my energy in the appropriate directions and avoid wasting any time on pointless pursuits. (you know what I mean). To some extent, it resembles a personal journey where I hold myself responsible for the daily actions I take. Even though it’s a personal voyage, anyone who wishes to accompany me is welcome to do so. There won’t be any scores, the only requirement is that you share with others how you spent your day, any personal projects you worked on, and any lessons you learned. Feel free to voice your opinions.
I’m going to include a couple of my personal goals for this year below
Task 1: Get hands-on experience with Blender CGI (A Free tool for all your 3D requirements)
Task 2: Extend that knowledge further in Unity (A Free Game Engine)
Task 3: Doing the most difficult thing, coding (namely python and C# for now), because my brain constantly runs away from it.
Task 4: Extend my expertise of graphic design by creating my own blueprint.
For the time being, these are sufficient, I will add/update other tasks if I am confident enough in the ones listed.
Depending on my availability, progress reports will most likely be updated weekly or monthly. I’m short on time, but that won’t stop me.
Day 5 (16/02/23)
Finally Friday Night is here, weekend is up means more time for personal stuffs.
Finished another lesson on low poly modeling in blender.
To stay engaged while following the tutorial, I was playing this ambient medieval music, it gave me some great vibes.
Check it out if anyone wants to listen as well…
Overall a good day, no urges just using my energy in right direction.
A well planned is more successful than the dreamer of success

Thats was a quickie tip just keep going and soon you will find your success
Day 6 (18/02/23)
Spent my time today searching a few more tutorials on blender and digital painting. I was tired of drawing ovals and lines, so played around to make things funny. Tried gesture drawing and damn it made me realize I have to practice drawing ovals and lines for a month or more. Gesture drawing in a min was really overwhelming. So thought to drop it there and followed other’s loose drawing tutorial, made some inaccurate shapes and did very basic coloring. Not much of a productive day but ya I took some power naps in between to not overload my mind.
For some weird reasons thought of my ex today and quickly snapped out of it, some chapters of life are supposed to remain closed, no need to open them again.
So to summarize, today was a balance of rest and productivity. No urges, fewer distractions and had fun too. Going to try continuing the journey tomorrow.
Tired of ovals drawing, so made this out of nowhere haha. On a side note, that’s many of us when we relapse so don’t relapse, stay strong!!!
Day 7 (19/02/23)
Spent my day training in blender, although I was distracted but I didnt let it ruin my entire day. Explored various editors in blender watched few movies made purely in blender. Overall a great day, going to continue studying more in coming days.
Oh, better stay away from fiction. I mean that’s my 2 cents. It’s a free country though.
I would suggest you to pick one that has something to do with one of the following: Finance, Psychology, Intergender dynamics, Negotiation… Basically anything that upgrades you as an individual.
Rich Dad, Poor Dad - Robert Kiyosaki
Never Split the Difference - Chris Voss
The Rational Male - Rollo Tomassi (I’m reading this one now)
Day 8 (20/02/23)
Slept on time, but woke up late. Not much productive day, busy in work. Hopefully after the coworking week, I can start afresh. Not much of urges but there are some triggers that sometimes pull me in, for now snapped out of those triggers.
