WHOA it’s been a while!! So sorry for the lack of post. As usual, I blame school. But I still make a lot of stuffs all these months.. It’s just that writing a blog post could take a while so I didn’t do it hehe. I update a lot more on my personal instagram, @sherlen.
Let’s talk about academic things first. Thank God my midterm exam results are okay so I don’t have to do extra works. And, all of my classmates are signing up and taking tests for university enrollment and that makes me feel.. extra anxious. Yes, I have decided to take a year off after I graduated but I don’t know…. Looking at them make me feel like a hopeless kid for not enrolling into a university. Every weekend they discuss it on our WhatsApp group and I sometimes feel left out.
There are a lot of reasons of why I decided to take a gap year. It’s weird how months or even years ago I was very, very sure of taking Graphic Design in a certain local university. But now, I reconsider everything. That certain university is like the “safest option” of all, and it seems like at least half of my classmates are enrolled in there. And I don’t quite like it. That uni is also extremely close to my house! That is not my goal in life after high school. Graphic Design is getting mainstream too and I just despise mainstream things.
I’m not sure of what I want to do in the future. I surely don’t want a hectic, strict office life, even if it’s a big money job. I don’t have a specific life goal besides working in a magazine editorial. I just want to be happy, create illustrations, make stuffs, express my creativity, participate in craft markets and bazaars, meet new people with the same passion, write a lot, take pictures, go to places, and make a living out of them. Does a course for that exist? Of course not.
But anyways, I initially wanted to post this XD

For some reasons, my scanner is not being a jerk this time and actually produced a good scanning result.
I don’t even know why I made this, it’s not like I’m in love or something.
p.s: Still working on my actual craft webstore. I hope it will be ready soon enough. But for now, you can purchase my stuffs on carousell.co/bysherlyn ! 😀
