Here comes another late entry--except this one is even later than before! I probably would just quit the challenge at this point, but the thought of leaving it uncompleted sounds stressful. So I guess I'll attempt to catch up. I wrote that earlier and just returned to my desk after trying Animal Crossing: Amiibo Party. It was my first time completing a full game; we set a 30-minute timer when we played it at [livejournal.com profile] woofelss's house. The review were right: The game felt kind of endless and repetitive. On the bright side, though, it was kind of relaxing and nostalgic. I'd probably enjoy playing it right before bed, and it looks like there are other modes and things to unlock, so it's not like I know what the entire game is like.

Personal Prompt: Name one thing you love that you don't have time to do anymore. Come up with a plan to try and incorporate that activity back into your life.

This is a difficult question because it's hard to think of anything I love or have loved doing. I have enjoyed drawing in the past--at least to some extent. It's also been really frustrating for me and hard to get myself into. But when I was in the flow of it, I really think that I did enjoy it. I liked being in that zoned-out state where I'd slowly watch my drawing come together--almost as if I was watching someone else do it. That didn't happen very often, though.

Similarly, I had rare moments when I enjoyed trying to learn an instrument, writing, etc., but "love" doesn't feel like the right word. I usually didn't love doing the activity; I occasionally loved getting to the end or awaiting the end when it was going well. That's probably what the question means anyway.

Come to think of it, there's also hiking and exploring in general. 

To be honest, I don't have much of a time issue right now either. I have a lot of time since I'm taking a break from everything but doctors' appointments (which can take up most days of the week but still). I just don't feel motivated or like I have enough energy to do anything with it, which is why everything is a mess that I continue to watch as it gets worse.

So I think I'll switch out "time" for "motivation." I could spend forever picking an activity to work on, so I'll pick drawing because it feels somewhat safe. A recently counselor suggested drawing for like 10 minutes a day--focusing on time spent drawing instead of getting something finished. I don't trust myself to draw 10 minutes a day, so maybe I can start with 5 and see where that takes me. It's infinite times better than nothing.

Creative Prompt: You can have dinner with any famous person (living or deceased), who do you dine with and why?

Ugh, I don't know many famous people!!! I guess I'll try my best to come up with someone, though. To be honest, I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who's become really successful so I could learn from them. Who the person is exactly doesn't really matter to me. For that reason, I don't think I should put energy into coming up with a specific person when it likely isn't going to matter anyway. To narrow it down a bit, I'll say that I'd like to have dinner with a famous creator of some form of art or ideas. And I'll leave the rest of it up to someone else.
