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?

Rejoice, Patience, Continue.

AYYY.

I’m currently on my Finals week but as usual, my creativity level is very high when it’s not an appropriate time to make something lol.

A bit talking; I finally got the results of my Psychology test to determine what major should I take… and the result is very, VERY surprising. I did get Visual Communication Design as the first choice, but the other two are… International Relations and Sociology. These are really surprising, considering that I’m currently a Science student instead of Social. To be honest, my result for the Science/Social class 3 years ago was inconclusive too they call it Divergent. My ability in both logical and analyzing is very equal. One of the thing I like to do is observing people, analyzing what’s happening on the current society, the background, and what are the effects. Being a Go-Green Ambassador was one of my childhood goal too hahaha.

I’m not sure if this is an advantage or not. I still don’t get it until now and I swear I laughed too hard when the psychologist showed me the result lol.

Moving on. Here’s another lettering I’ve made today. I don’t remember if I’ve told you guys, but since last month I ‘gave up’ and finally listened to my class councilor’s suggestion to read Bible daily. Well, It does wonderful things.Romans 12:12 is currently my strength because it sound very beautiful and promising.

If you couldn’t notice it, this isn’t really my style… The flowers and all the colors were inspired by the bright and full-of-gradation illustration style of @jesiiii on Instagram.

(and I think I don’t want to do this style again bahahah let’s stick to the simple watercolor a la Sherlyn.)

Have a nice day! Don’t forget to study!

The Runner

I love love love LOVE THE MAZE RUNNER SERIES!!!!!
*inhale*
Where should I even start? The main idea is genius, the characters are built perfectly, the writing style is interesting. Like seriously, everyone should read this series. I’m still on Book Two because I read really slow.

My favorite character would be Minho because HE’S SO FRIGGIN SARCASTIC ♥
(I’ll kick you shucks if you thought I like him because he’s Korean)
Apparently he’s the leader of the Runners who never gives up and well, really really sarcastic to the point of handsomeness.

But I have to admit that he’s physically good-looking from the way Dashner described him hehe.

My second favorite would be Newt because he’s clever and calm when everyone in The Glade is in panic. He can also glue everyone when the situations is messy.

The movie will be out soon in September. I must say that they have the best cast ever; the actors look exactly the same like how I pictured them. (Not like *ahem* Divergent series. Their castings kinda pissed me). I hope the storyline isn’t disappointing too.

I can’t wait!!!!!!
