Hello hello, felt a strong urge to update the blog today. I typed my occupation as “Blogger” on Instagram but I seem to be doing a pretty shitty job at it at the moment, I mean, was my last post really in November!? HEH.
Anyway, reason for that is that I have been an “Artist” more than anything else since I went full on full time with ArtsyDaphy last September. All day and night it’s meetings, planning the next project, designing, office renovations (YEAH! Going to have a legit studio soon!), etc till today. I’m now typing this in my hotel room in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. Been here for a week and going to be finishing up all 4 murals I planned to do here by the end of this week. Everything has been so fast paced nearing the end of last year, it has been insane – insanely GOOD.
I mean, there are things that I wished I could have done better of course, and I really wished I kept up my weekly YouTube video goal (which I totally failed at nearing December), but I feel great still. Happy that I managed to pull through all the projects and didn’t totally eff up anything, happy that I have the freedom to do what I want with my time and make every moment count.

It's raining. And we're brooding . The gloom clouds over our sensitive Cancerian souls . Sigh . Its 2018, and I haven't much to say… Or maybe I have way too much to say, I just don't know where to start, so I didn't . To sum it up, it's been mad – in a fantastic way. And am so grateful for everything, it deserves a longer post. But that's that for now.
I can still remember the times I sat at my 8-5, looking out the window watching time pass me by. I clearly remember all the internal conflicts I went through to convince myself to take the leap – to do more. I remember all the doubts I had early 2017 – how I wouldn’t survive on my own. And I remember all the time it took, the experiences I plunged into, the people I met, the inspiring movies, the amazing people I follow, and the Casey Neistat life advice videos the bf threw at me (LOL).. all that and more that made my mind turn 180 and went full blast into what I’m pursuing today.
I learnt to juggle, to talk, to be confident, to invest in people, to offer more value, to find a way to make a living with my skills and understand that it is more than just “earning a living”, but “building a life”. Because I have so much more control over time, I’ve also upped my health game with frequent exercises and better diets. Everything seems to be getting better and really hope this continues to improve. In just a mere 4 months I feel so much change and I just know that this is right 😀
Anyways, I wanted this to be Dec-Jan Update, but it seems like it has turned into some sort of “How life changed in 2017” thing. I’m just going to give this post a whatever title and type an actual update next time. haha. Yes, it’s getting late and I’m getting distracted.
Till next time! Lots of plans for more consistent content in the near future. I’ll see you guys real soon :*
