It’s been a long time since I last updated this blog. And in the last 6 months or so, many things have happened in my life. First, the last drawings I did.
I realized a long time ago, that I was not happy with what I did. I kept rambling about it to many people, but I did not taken any steps to really change it until 2 months ago. My job didn’t hold any meaning anymore. Everything seemed to be superficial and I am not really excited about the field as in the past. So I have decided that it is time to find out what really matters, what will give me emotional reward and contentment in the end.
In early June, we went on holiday to Paris for a week. I made only 3 sketches while I was there, unfortunately. This holiday was more like a food therapy holiday for us and also some soul searching for me. We discussed lots of things about where I want to go, how do I go from here, etc.etc. We came back 3 kg heavier because of all the delicious food we ate and I found my answer.
Back at home, I enrolled myself in a local university and have gotten a response. I need to do 2 courses (chemistry + biology) and do the exams before I can start on the study I want to do. Not a strange decision from them, seeing that I didn’t do lots of chem of bio at my old university. Then I enrolled myself in the chemistry course and wrote my resignation letter.
The chemistry course, which started a month ago, has been really keeping me busy almost full time. Homework..homework..and homework. It is afterall an intensive course. However, I didn’t realised that chemistry is actually really fun to learn. The downside is that it really leaves me with almost no time to draw or blog. Internet has become a luxury to me. But I have no intention of stopping with drawing/sketching!
