2012 : Looking Back

What a year. Here’s to looking back to random milestones. I flipped through my organizer and…

January – April

  • Began production meetings for TLC: The Musical
  • Caught ‘Spring Awakening’ and discovered ‘Rock of Ages’ which inspired music direction for the musical.
  • Did my Individual Project, allowing me to find my aesthetic and what I really loved about art.
  • Was involved in two shows simultaneously and worked with four different directors. Amazing.
  • Did a workshop with Nelson Chia. Another awesome experience.
  • Learnt Grotowski. Discovered Murakami. Both life changing.

May – July

  • Summer was awesome. Worked at Harry Potter : The Exhibition at the ArtScience Museum at MBS. Met the most amazing people that I never knew could exist. Worked on my social skills. Definitely a life-changing experience. :’) But mehhhh I haven’t met up with them in so long :(!
  • Skeleton of TLC: The Musical out.
  • First trip overseas without Mom. Survived!

August – November

  • First semester, Level Three.
  • Did two shows and both had fantastic reviews from our lecturers. It shocked me because it felt so different and so.. Easy.
  • Did a design presentation which made me miss designing. Doing my thesis.
  • Going forward. Chasing dreams. Writing my plans.
  • Bought my first domain!

December

  • Final touches of TLC: The Musical.
  • Stepping down from the Children Ministry after 7 years of serving.
  • All of my hopes, plans, dreams and life experiences are for the glory of God.
  • Moved to Mom’s study because Grandma moved in.

Will we say we’ve had our fun?

So 2013, what do you have in store for me? More accurately; God, what do you have in store for me?

So here’s what I aim to do or be, with a little help from sermons from camp, Thought Catalog, and tumblr.

  • Always chase down dreams.
  • Take time away to do things for myself. Love, but don’t cling too hard. Rely on yourself.
  • Read more books. Any books.
  • Take time to see art.
  • Smile more. Be kinder to people. Love with compassion, with fiery passion, with empathy.
  • Create art unapologetically, relentlessly.
  • Don’t neglect people who care.
  • Trust God with everything that happens. Don’t dwell on the past, look to the amazing future that God has planned out. No matter what, He will guide you home.
  • Be strong. Be brave. Be soft.

I look forward to another year.
