  • Make a list of every thing huge in pop culture that you’ve never watched, read or listened to (like ‘When Harry Met Sally’ and the original Sherlock books) and work your way through them.

Nineteen things I’ve learned before I turned nineteen.

  • Always carry $5 and a lighter with you (even if you don’t smoke).
  • Ask every person you meet how their day is going. Genuinely ask with the soul intention of learning how their day is. Ask the coffee shop employee. Ask the person next to you in line at Walmart. Ask your distant friend. Ask everyone.
  • Take many photos of yourself. Take photos of yourself when you’re happy. Take photos of yourself when you’re sad. Take photos of yourself because there are millions of trees in the world, and we all look at the same sky, but there is only one of you.
  • Stay in contact with your parents. Try not to hate them. They are the reason you have the ability to feel anything at all. Try not to hate your parents.

thank you, [http://positivedoodles.tumblr.com/]

  • Pick a book of poetry, and create a piece of art based on every poem. Continue until you’re done. Then pick your favorite one, and reinterpret it in another medium.
  • Make yourself a playlist of songs and noises that get you in the creative mood.
  • Make an inspiration board on Pinterest or make a physical inspiration board and post it in the area where you do most of your creative work.
  • Take things from one medium and transfer them to another. For example, is there something about film-making that you think is super cool? a specific technique? write a short letter arranging the words and thoughts in a way that mirrors that technique.
  • Light a candle while you’re working, and light that candle again every other tim...
