Everyone got your New Year Resolutions ready?
I haven’t, since those never really worked for me for as long as I remember.
2007 been a pleasantly radical year; big decisions and life-changing moments. One moment my friends and I were rushing through graveyard schedules to prepare ourselves for our graduation show, Fusion 2007, and the next I see myself saying goodbye to all of them as I witness myself transforming from a civilian to a soldier; my hair hasn’t grown much since then.
Now that I look back, a decade of my life, isn’t nearly as exciting as this one year alone.
A couple of years back, a friend of mine would have casually commented, “You haven’t really lived life.” I thought it was ridiculous back then, I still think it is, right now; its been only 20 years on Earth, I still have too little to say about life. But from a different perspective, she was right, life was pretty much about textbooks and school projects back then, heh.
I’ve been thinking alot about the future for the past week; what I want out of life itself and how the 2 years I spend in army is going to make the most sense later on.
So I’m trying to get my portfolio online with whatever weekend time and holiday off-days given before I apply for Art Center next year. I’ll hate to see myself rushing things out at the eleventh hour, that would mean my work habits haven’t changed one bit.
A year full of regrets would be the last thing I want this Christmas.
If you’re coming up with a list of resolutions for the new year, why not have a list of lessons learnt from the past year instead?
P.S. Heading for Taiwan on 13 Jan next year so lemme know if you need anything there..
And before that, I’ll be off to the jungles again..
Souvenirs from Mother Nature? I’ll be glad to help =]
