I said way back on January 14th that I'm challenging myself to see all the Oscar nominated best picture films. It's kind of a strange challenge for me, definitely unlike anything I've done before. I'm halfway there with a little over three weeks to go. I'm not sure I'll be able to see all 8 as I'm discovering some of them aren't playing in my area but I'm going to see as many as can. Of the four I've seen so far, I only liked two of them! And between those two I'm not sure which I'd root for.
I know a lot of people make it a goal to watch less TV, but this year I said I'd like to watch more. I watch very little TV, very little Netflix, and had even stopped watching movies because they take so long. This year, one of my goals is to collect stories so that I can get better at having meaning and telling stories within my art. I intend to watch more movies and a little TV occasionally too.
Here's what I watched in January. It is such an interesting mix to see it altogether this way. ;)
I'm already thinking about what other challenges I might want to try this year when this Oscar challenge is over. It's funny when I have a big event or a deadline, I make stuff happen. If I don't, I feel a little like I'm coasting. A year is a long time and so I think maybe I gotta set some goals for shorter time spans and then really see them though. What do you think? Have you taken on some kind of challenge?
