Last week I attended a conference that was aimed at encouraging women to pursue careers in technology. I learned a lot , met a lot of cool people and my passion for programming grew. One thing that stuck with me was something one of the speakers said. I cannot even remember her name but I will always remember what she said.
She said that she isn't going to tell us a way to stop procrastinating because there is no easy way to achieve something. It's all about hard work and perseverance. I couldn't help but notice how this ties in with my art.
When my I began my Artventure I did expect it to be a challenge but now when I look back I realise that I wouldn't be where I am if I did face the challenges. At that moment I may or may not have realised that by overcoming challenges such as procrastination, expressing myself and sharing my work online it helped me discover myself.
Most recently I challenged myself to draw an A3 picture. I didn't know what I was doing but I had a goal. I bought myself an A3 sketchbook and drew the first of many to come. It was a great experience and I was happy with the results.
This whole experience reminded me of the quote: "You will never know unless you try." Right now I am working hard on my programming skills. I will share something about that soon and it's super exciting. So what I am trying to say is if you want something go out and get it but it's important to remember that it's going to take a lot of hard work.
