Motivation

HELLLOO everyone. I survived my first week of hectic National Exam preparation *cries*

It’s only the first week but I felt like I’ve been pushing myself so hard. I didn’t take extra courses this time (unlike my Elementary or Junior High exams), so every day after classes are over I redo the exercises and ask my teachers. Then after I get home and cleaned myself, I do the exercise more again. Probably my most productive era ever XD. Except today ahahah I NEED a break so I created an illustration (that I’m about to reveal after this) and went out to eat Taiwanese ice dessert AT A COLD AFTER RAIN OF 10 P.M AHAHAHAHAHHA.

Kinda hard to juggle everything; Biology, Math, Physics, Chemistry (well, Biology isn’t really a huge problem compared to the latter to be honest). But I wasn’t the only one struggling. I notice how exhausted almost all of my classmates (yes; almost. because some people looked so careless ;-;). My class councilor told us that it is a hectic semester and we need to stop grumbling so we can achieve our graduation with the best scores.

Which inspired me to create this:filipi wp

(save HQ version, print it, make it a desktop wallpaper, whatever. as long as you don’t sell them lol)

Yeah it’s in Indonesian… because I’ll put the original up in my classroom ^_^ It’s a Bible Verse.

Philippians 2:14

— Do all things without complaining and disputing,

I hope everyone (my classmates or whoever reading this) would be motivated and so we can all graduate together! Fighting!

New Year Rain.

Ah, happy new year, people! Neglected this blog (again) because I was having too much fun with my real life 😀

I celebrated my New Year’s Eve with my classmates, and it was awesome. We barbecued some fishes and sausages and lots of other food, turnt up the music, chit-chatted, took pictures, and at 12 AM we wrote our 2015 resolutions to keep and bad habits of 2014 to be burnt. Fun fun fun. I don’t know about them, but I certainly had a blast. I’ve never felt this happy, and I hope it will last as long as I live.

I’m really grateful because throughout 2014, I was given lots of ups and downs and experiences. God still gave me a chance to change myself. He hasn’t even given up on me, and I’m thankful for that. I’m recovering from my depression and anxiety. I’m starting to read Bible daily. I found people I could treasure. I learn to be more mature. I could finish some of the (although compulsory) biggest projects yet in my life; writing/editing an English novel as well as becoming a freaking MC for the launching event, becoming a costume designer for a theatre show, and directing a music video. I finally feel like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly 😀

2015 sure is going to be hectic. This is the year of my last semester in Senior High School, my National Exam, and…. possible university life. It’s like a major, huge step of my life. Who knows what could happen? Thinking about it sometimes scare me. But life goes on, and I will just do my best and let God do the rest 😀

Anyways, I’m currently missing somebody so bad and thanks to the heavy rain these past days I’m getting very sappy lol. One of my 2015 resolutions is to make and draw more.

So here goes my first illustration of 2015! (and I really could make myself a songwriter heh)

I got a new watercolor pad from Reeves, sized A5 and has this beautiful beige color. Though not really a fan of the rough texture because when I outline something with drawing pen then erase the pencil line, the paper almost got teared. Also, I tried a new style and more details. Can’t wait to experiment more!

How did you celebrate NYE? What are the things that you’re thankful for in 2014?
