100 Days of Rondas (The 100 Day Challenge 2015)

ENG: In 2015, the first official 100 Day Challenge was launched on Instagram by artist Elle Luna. After much hesitation and not fully clear about what it really entailed (even though I had done a 365 days challenge, but privately), Gizem Evcin and I decided to do it and support each other.

I decided to do 100 iterations of my alter ego, Ronda Bazooka. I completed it and that was the beginning of a new era as I realized that taking on creative challenges was the surest way to keep my creativity alive.

FR: En 2015 fut lancée la première version officielle du 100 Day Challenge sur Instagram, par l’artiste Elle Luna. Après de nombreuses hésitations, et sans trop vraiment savoir dans quoi on se lançait (alors même que j’avais fait un challenge de 365 jours en 2013, mais de façon privée), Gizem Evcin et moi avons décidé de nous lancer dans l’aventure tout en nous soutenant.

Je décidais de créer 100 itérations de mon alter ego, Ronda Bazooka. Je finis le challenge et cette aventure marqua le début d’une nouvelle ère pour moi. Elle me permit de réaliser que faire un challenge créatif était la façon la plus sûre de maintenant ma créativité.

Day 16

Day 16/100 A few weeks ago, a good friend who is into bodybuilding talked to me about Schwarzenegger and how smart the man was. Up until that point, Schwarzie was a confusing pop-reference to me, body builder turned actor turned politician who cheated on his wife. Argh. I decided to put money where my mouth is and do proper research to better know the man, so if I was going to criticize him, at least it would be informed criticism. As it so often turns out, the more I’ve searched, the more impressed and humbled i’ve been by Schwarzie’s trajectory. Rule #1: Don’t sentence before hearing out the story. Rule #2: there’s always something to learn from someone, unless you prefer being right. Rule #3: i am not qualified to make up rules, so don’t listen to me. PS: totally used ronda as an excuse to share that story. #100daysofrondas #the100dayproject #rondabazooka #arnoldschwarzenegger #bodybuilding #lessons

Day 19/100 Ronda Gaiman Today i’m paying homage to the three little words that have made a hell of a difference in my life: Make Good Art, and the storyteller who thought it might be essential to share that wisdom during a Keynote Speech in 2012: Neil Gaiman. If you don’t know this keynote, just google “neil gaiman make good art”. To me “make good art” really means “create”. Create every day. No matter what. Just make stuff. This is essentially what we should do with everything (food, sport, sex and whatnot) to become uber human, but we are only humans, and can often only pick one battle at a time. My battle is creativity. The rest is there to support this journey. I’ve been through a hell of a ride this last ten days and finally starting to see “the end of the tunnel”, but one thing didn’t move: I made a ronda a day. Whether or not I was inspired, felt good or wanted to. Let’s see how the next 81 days will go, but when in doubt, i’ll just remember to make good art. #the100dayproject #100daysofrondas #rondabazooka #neilgaiman #makegoodart #procrastination #homage #ourcreativeboat

Day 24

24/100 Rondagette Today in France we celebrate women’s right to vote. It’s been a grand total of 70 years that we, women, have a voice in this Nation. My father is older than the women’s right to vote. (Just to give some perspective.) And it’s all thanks to women who fought for this right that I have it. women who were laughed at, judged disruptive, accused of fighting for a wrong or lost cause. Thanks to them, i am me. So if others around you try to intimidate or ridicule you when your voice stands out and differ from the established crowd, when you try to defend a cause you feel strong about to help the world become a better place, remember them. Good causes need rondagettes, suffragettes and us. #100daysofrondas #the100dayproject #rondabazooka #suffragette #vote #anniversary
