~ Bah! Bah! Bah! - the magic sheep probably
Back when I wrote the previous journal entry, I was in the middle of my army service. It was October and it felt so daunting, knowing that I have yet another year to drag myself on. Do not get me wrong, I definitely did acquire a lot of life skills, lessons and the likes, and while I do enjoy firing my rifles, two years of mandatory service were just… long. I did kept thinking of better ways I could have spent instead since I didn't want to be drafted in the first place. But, like I mentioned, I did learn a lot and I'm certainly am grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of my country's defense.
I was fortunate enough that majority of my weekends were left untouched by the unit I was posted to as I have heard situations from my friends that they had ‘activation’ in the middle of their Saturday night for quite a number of times. For those who would like to know, ‘activation’ is a form of call-up whereby they have to return back to their camp and be on standby formation within an hour usually (Or shorter depending on the level of the emergency status). So, yea, I had my weekends free to practice my artsy stuffs, which is nice.
Anyhow, as cliche as the phrase goes, time flies right pass me and I have finally completed my service. I’m beginning a new semester of class in a new school. This time round, I have decided to take a leap of faith and opted for a design course at FZD instead of an engineering one, which I was a student of previously before my army terms.
Welcome and thank you for checking out my gallery.
I'm currently serving my two years of military service and it has been a little difficult trying to find the time to do art-related stuffs. With the weekdays spent entirely in camp, I am somewhat a little unresponsive. It's a surprise to myself that I'm able to upload anything.
I appreciate the comments everyone have given me. As a self-taught artist, those compliments serve a huge motivational boost to me. I will try to reply to all of it, but if I don't, it also doesn't mean that I don't care about it. I certainly do acknowledge them. Honest. I just prefer to respond when I actually do have something to say, and not just reply for the sake of replying.
Keep calm and wear that smile of yours everyday!
