Good night

 

 

Thinking about people (like Pogo ^ above) who are basically masters of their crafts, and how they spend almost all their time working on just the one thing they do, to create astounding results

They love what they do - at least the results, but probably make positive associations with the work processes too - and so they do it all the time forever, and they end up with what everyone else only dreams of doing/making

 

Thinking about if I can apply that concept to anything in my own life

Hi! I'm Lumi, host of Reisen, Tewi, Flandre and Lucilyn.

Everyone deserves to love and be loved. It's human nature.

My tulpas and I have a Q&A thread, which was the first (and largest) of its kind. Feel free to ask us about tulpamancy stuff there.

And at some point, I should even consider whether my personal day-to-day enjoyment is actually just worth sacrificing in favor of creating things that are fulfilling instead. 

Both denying myself easy dopamine activities, and doing anything particularly fulfilling, are pretty foreign to me. I don't know yet whether I can actually live long-term without a lot of dopamine-y activities, or just how motivating successfully creating things I care a lot about might be.

 

Stuff to find out, but also to think about and plan so I can find out in the first place

It's a balancing act: by foregoing dopemine stuff that provides enjoyment in the short term, you pursue more productive long-term activities that theoretically lead to more enjoyment eventually.

Yo, my name is Sean and I'm the host of 2 tulpas: Sente and Mae. You'll know when they're talking because Sente talks in yellow text and Mae talks in blue text.

I also feel like, once I'm at the skill level where I finally meet my standards for appreciating what I'm making, it'd become an infinite feedback loop of wanting to spend more time practicing/creating and I would only get better and like what I make more from then on

 

Unfortunately I'm at the phase where I can't even make myself continue the character modeling tutorial series even when I'm otherwise being productive, learning C# or making other things in Blender, or soon, even learning to texture paint lol.

 

 

Well. If I can take that seriously and frame it that way, I guess I could try to make reaching "the point where I actually appreciate what I make" an important and urgent goal

I only reached there somewhat recently. Majority of my time I couldn't appreciate anything I made

Creation for creation's sake.

Well, I still can't appreciate finishing things. Like I said, I made that jack-o'-lantern over 3 hours and when I was done I felt more guilty than proud. Just felt lazy for not making multiple with different faces (which would've taken a LOT more time) or animating the light and figuring out how to make a glow effect

 

While it would be life-changing to fix by brain not feeling good about accomplishing things, technically certain things that reach the level of "fulfilling" motivate me in a different and more immediately powerful way

Like, if I could make one of my tulpas in Blender, even if it was crappy I would have a positive feeling come from elsewhere in my brain I guess, which is probably still dopamine

 

Very much struggling to get there though, the character modeling tutorials are a precursor to starting multiple other steps to get to that point..
