To Do List

I thought it might be a good idea to write down everything I have still yet to complete, just for my own peace of mind that it is all written in one place, and half to show people why I am so busy and stressed all the time (with good reason)!!

5 Blog posts, which relate to issues surrounding my personal development and creative industries
1 Uk Government funding for the arts compared to other countries
2 2D as a ‘dying’ art form
3 Networking and how to get yourself noticed (premade things) & plans for portfolio (events, festivals, emails)
4 pirating in the animation, film and games industries and how it is affecting the industry
5 differing in freelancing, Leeds to Telford, where would be best to do it, perhaps moving or focusing on a particular area of this country or another country all together
