  1. Number 12 is something I would really like to start to get involved in. I would love to go to more seminars and talks to learn from others in the same creative field as me.

    I love this! I've been using a 2015 diary to motivate myself this year and have been planning what gym classes I'm going to and things like that a few weeks in advance - keeps me focused with an action plan! Definitely want to watching TED talks more frequently, have seen a few before that have been so thought provoking.

  27. Do you have any advice for sort of breaking into this? Or any events you could recommend for those new to these kinds of events?

  28. I keep an eye out for creative events by following a bunch of local promoters online - groups like Glug, which do semi-regular networking events for creatives. But generally speaking I would say, make friends with creative people and let them know you're up for doing creative things like attending exhibitions and creative talks, etc. It's all about being pro-active and searching for things to do in your spare time :))
