I’m Humbled.

I’m humbled by the fact that there were so many people that recognised me with certain traits that I do or by a certain style of my posts, be it on whatever social media platform that I’m on.

I’m humbled by the fact that people actually gave attention to some of the work I did, e.g. vlogs, photographs and the like.

I’m humbled by the way people are sometimes willing to open themselves up to one another, even though they do not know the person they’re talking to that well.

I’m humbled by the fact that things happen and we’re at the mercy of fate.

I just feel sometimes, incidents happen, or life just happens, and it reminds us of how powerless and weak we are. That sometimes, our work can go unnoticed but during a few rare occasions, they were.

It reminds me of what my intentions are for putting my work out there, not for the recognition (only), but to improve my creative side and my craft.

There’s so much more wonderful memories to be made and so much more work to be done.

I can do this!

2017: 365 Days of Lessons

I’ve decided.

This year I’m going to document the lessons I’ve learnt every single day, be it academic lessons, life lessons, advice from people, thoughts or ideas that occurred to me.

Why?

Because I’ve realised that there is so much that we can learn in our lives, every day, every single moment, but unfortunately, we forget them soon after we learnt/thought about them.

Therefore, by documenting these ideas and lessons into a single book (or maybe on my website or on Evernote), I can refer to them and assimilate them into my daily life.

Hmm… Maybe an audio recording would be better? Let’s see…


Good Bye 2016, What’s Next?

I don’t know.

To be honest, that was what 2016 was like, full of I-Don’t-Knows.

2016 was wonderful and it was a year where I had learnt so much, made so many wonderful friendships and learnt truly a lot about myself and I guess, attained self-awareness.

2016 was the year I ORD-ed from serving the nation in the Singapore Civil Defence Force,
2016 was the year I became a student of the National University of Singapore,
2016 was the year that I’ve forged unexpected friendships (how I entered Silat without much consideration),
2016 was the year I opened myself up to many new things (joining two ad-hocs without much consideration),
2016 was the year I lived my dream of being a college student,
2016 was the year I started to put more focus into my writing,
2016 was the year I became obsessed with Casey Neistat and his art of vlogging,
2016 was the year I truly strived to be a better person,
2016 was the year that I squatted heavy (52.5KG per side),
Most importantly, 2016 was the year I hustled.

There are many things I’ve failed to achieve in 2016 but there are also many things that I achieved. There were also many detours and unexpected things that happened that made my 2016 so much more beautiful.

I’ll be posting up my goals and resolutions for 2017 and also a reflection on how my resolutions for 2016 had turned out to be.

P.S. However, in my opinion, 2016 had been bloody and brutal for the outside world, but 2016 was needed for the world to wake up.

Even though there might be things that we had hoped could have been better in 2016, let’s refresh ourselves and move forward to 2017 with renewed hope and vitality.
