For A Few Seconds More

(For full emotional effect, initiate motivational soundtrack in a separate window here )
I've noticed lately that I have a terrible habit.
I glance at paintings.
That's right, I merely glimpse at them. Sometimes I only take a short, shameful peek. My mouse click barely skips a beat as I hastily browse from one image to the next.
Granted, there's a lot of art to be seen, and quite frankly, most of it is probably not worth the value of time. That is as it should be. We can't expect to create great work until we've flooded the world with loads of mediocrity.
It takes an awful lot of tumbling to smooth a stone.
Yet, even the images that I feel are of exceptional quality, I may give them no more than a few seconds worth of my attention. 5-10 is probably my average. 15 seconds is really pushing it. If a work is truly inspirational, I may download it to my computer, so that I can continuously re-glance at it for seconds at a

My 4 art related resolutions for 2016:
:bulletyellow: Complete at least 6 Schoolism Self-Taught classes before my yearly subscription expires. Complete the assignments. All of them
:bulletyellow: Become consistent with networking, now that I know how to make it pleasant for me. Be active at least weekly.
:bulletyellow: Develop my personal projects. Complete an outline of my main OCs and headworld
:bulletyellow: Stop running away from perspective and dynamic poses. I'll study and practice until I'm able to build interiors with characters doing things. From any angle

Cleared art related resolutions:
Good habits I picked up and plan to maintain:
:bulletgreen: Exercise daily (walk/jog/ride bike) + stretching. More art related than it seems
:bulletgreen: Sit in a correct posture during work
:bulletgreen: Turn off computer by midnight, set alarm at 8:30am - on regular working days, that is
:bulletgreen: Keep a daily sketchbook
:bulletgreen: Conquer time management - currently using a Pomodoro-based technique
:bulletgreen: Learn how to chillax :la:

You know those people that barely leave their rooms and only seem comfortable with making online friends? Those extreme internet people that need to let the world know about the number of times they took a crap today?
SPOT ON that’s me, only backwards. I’m a lurker at best. I’m totally cool with real life and I’d love to spend my whole life THERE in the real world. Only it’s not that good an idea for an “artist” to abandon the opportunities that come with online marketing. Right? But I don’t want networking to feel like a chore. Right now, it does. As soon as I have work to do, I have an excuse to run off for months and feel free from the burdens of social networking. I don’t want this to be about marketing alone. I honestly want to feel excited about browsing and interacting and joining discussions!
I’d love to, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to do this. Somehow, it doesn’t seem to work for me. I feel people are so distant and I can't have the kind of contact I find in real life. Perhaps I only need some patience, practice and inspiration?
:bulletblue: Tell me about the positive aspects of your experience on socializing online as an artist/art enthusiast
. Did you make new friends? Got in contact with artists you admire? Took part in nice events you remember fondly? I’m interested in relationships and good memories, not “usefulness”. I know Internet can give me anything I’d ever need, but I want to start seeing it as a place full of real people, not just information.
I did make friends online years ago and it was great. I wish I could be more constant and actually be there with them, but I need to get rid of this stupid social media anxiety. 
Feel free to send me a note about this if you prefer that kind of communication!
