What will make you happy? What’s most important to you?
What do you want to get out of life before you die? Are you taking steps towards this right now?
How are you prioritising life, friends, family, relationships, career, recreation and learning?
There’s saying that you will do it. And then there’s actually doing it.
What you say to others and to yourself…it may not necessarily mean your actions also follow suit.
Is there a limit you won’t cross? We all do. It concerns our comfort zone, responsibilities and values/principles. What would you say yes to without hesitation? What would you say no to?To be fair, I’ll answer these questions too without gut spilling like a diary entry.I am happy learning what I enjoy and tackling fun problems to solve – with what I’ve learned (that was one of the reasons why I considered my first career in the first place). But I am not content with how things are. This is what drives me. Eventually I aim to prove I can do this for a living within 10+ years or so enough to experience more of life outside my hermit walls. Admittedly I enjoy being a hermit as I gain energy that way but I try to get out once in while else it can be suffocating and I’ll definitely have no friends or fun outside drawing times. Part of my adventure!
I don’t want a huge house or any other material things as milestones. I don’t intend to start a family of my own either. I have my limits: personal, financial, social, friendships, art wise and so on; all of which are slowly expanding at different rates. I don’t bend to peer pressure as it’s still my choice in the end. I will say yes to things that are directly related to what I’m doing. Then there’s the maybe/no pile where I am not fully convinced of its relevance, whether I would enjoy the experience or whether it’s practical for me to go/do.
Our upbringings, values, habits, hobbies, circumstances, experiences, personalities and how we control/flow with life may differ but ultimately we all have choice in the face of things outside of our control.
We choose our own adventure.
So let’s make the most of it.
Position: Vacant screening times mixup at MIAF14!
I believed it was screening as part of the Student Showcase all along until today at the time of posting. It’s actually part of the Australian Showcase on Saturday 21st of June at 6pminstead plus a Meet the Filmmakers event as well. Bewildered I must say! How?! Need to change the graphics now.

“When you’re too comfortable, you stop growing” – Tim Bono
But if you don’t watch it, you’d be overwhelmed with discomfort! A balancing act! I’m constantly overwhelmed with the “should do”s so it’s tricky to weed out what’s important sometimes especially when incredible artists around me are doing amazing things. Right now, what’s important to me is art learning – anatomy, drawing fundamentals, making sure I take breaks away from everything and just growing and learning as a person in general as always.
