So I noticed that I didn't write any post last year. I just didn't feel like writing - that's all.
But I think it's time to write what I did last year and what I want to do this year.
2016 was a year of change for me. In fact, it all started in 2015, but 2016 was the year that all the good stuff and bad stuff happened.
I came back to Japan and started working at a creative agency/production company in Tokyo. I got crazily busy and didn't even know what I was doing. I was depressed sometimes. I just kept reading books on the way to work, just to keep myself calm by escaping from the reality and remind myself that "everything's gonna be okay". (Of course, watching Silver Linings Playbook and listening to Baz Luhrmann's commencement speech helped too).
About half a year later, I decided to casually contact my old boss who used to be my mentor when I was doing an internship. Four months after we had drinks together, he became my boss again. I can't thank him enough.
I probably have less drama in my life now, but more learnings every day.
That pretty much sums up what happened last year and where I am now.
I am happy now :)
Felt like I wanted to share what I've seen/done so far in 2017.
What I watched this year so far:
Great soundtrack played by an indie's band. I somehow associated myself with the main character.
Another Emma Roberts film. The story was just another high school drama, but it really reflects how millennials live today - whatever you do, you are constantly watched by someone. The way they filmed was so real. I felt like it was actually happening on my screen.
Miss You Already
Now is Good
Films I kind of loved in 2016:
The Brand New Testament
Deadpool, X Men Apocalypse, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Me before you
What I did this year so far:
I started learning After Effects. I'm enjoying it so far - although I'm still rubbish at it.
I'm working on animating a character now.
Below is a crap I made in the very beginning of the year.
Why am I learning this? - I just want things to move because I love unusual movements.
What I want to do this year
1. Re-make this boring website and make it more fun.
2. DO SOMETHING FUN.
3. COMPLETE WHAT I STARTED AGES AGO.
4. COMPLETE MY READING CHALLENGE
5. LEARN A LOT
