New Year . New Job . New Goals

Hey all~!

It's 2011 and I've got great news to share here!

1stly, I've recently got a JOB~!!! I'll be working as a Matchmove Artist at Double Negative, which started last month *sorry didn't update*

A little history on Double Negative:

Double Negative, located in the heart of London's Soho, was set up in 1998 with a team of 30 staff. Since then the company has grown to 850+ staff, making it Europe's largest provider of visual effects for Film. Over the past 12 months, Double Negative has completed work on projects including; Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Inception, Iron Man 2, Kick-Ass, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, The Wolfman, 2012 and Green Zone.

Yep, so it's a movie Visual Effects Company and it's simply an awesome place to work at, the environment is great and the peeps there make it even more awesome :D

2ndly, since it's 2011, I should set a few goals out for myself to complete by the end of this year :)

So, here it goes, Cyrus's List of things to do for the coming year :D

1. To reinvent myself. Yes, it's exactly what it says, in the coming months I'll be working towards reinventing myself, to throw out the bad habits and cultivate better habits. No more procrastination and worrying. No point keeping bad habits if it will only pull/slow one down ya?

2. No looking for love, only friends. Yesh, this, i realize, has been a heavy emotional burden I've been carrying along with me for years since my last relationship. So, I'm gonna scrap this out of my head. Life has its tendency to work in the opposite direction when you want something to happen in your life, so from now onwards, I'll be leaving that to nature to take its course.

3. To get a Driver's License. Yep, if I don't get it this year, I will never get it. :)

4. To pick up a sport and have a healthier, more active lifestyle.

5. To have a savings amount of 5k in total by the end of the year. Saving is always a good thing.

Yep. So that's how it'll go, my list of things to do for the coming year. b(",)

I'll do my best to keep blogging this coming year, so do keep a lookout for more posts :D
So for now.

Cheerio~! ;)

Finally it's over... But time to look for a job...

Hey y'all, it's really been a very very long time...

This blog is definitely not dead, it's just that times are too hectic these days.

After a long 2-3 months of strenuous work on my production, it's finally completed. Gosh what a relief~! But then the reality sets in and the need to get a job soon takes over. Haha, not much of a well deserved break i guess... I would love to show you guys what i'm working on and the reels i've just completed. Be sure to visit my work blog to check em out if you're curious :D

I've moved my stuff from school back home. And times at home have been very... sickening. I really can't wait to move out once i get a job, to feel how it is like to finally rely on myself alone, not to mention be rid of the chaos my home usually has. I miss my pals at school more than i miss home, weird isn't it? Usually it should be the opposite, but to me, school was like family, and i will miss my pals. Doesn't mean we can't hang out, but well, it's just not as frequent as we want it anymore :(

Guess that's all I've to log at the moment, so till next time.

Cheerio~ :D

Busy busy busy...

Hey guys,

Been having a hectic time recently, with an urgent dateline to rush *no surprise*

But life is always unexpected and it leaves some of us baffled by why things happen the way it did. Guess we can only just push through the challenges life gives us.

So i'm writing this post to let you readers know that i'm not dead, it's just that i'm busy~ -_-"

Here's a preview of what i'm working on.

Do look out for my future posts, so for now...

Cheerio~ :D

In case you'd think this blog is dead...

You're WRONG hahahaha

It's been 2 months (omg... again) since my last blog update, and the reason is still the same.

School. Production. Crap.

Things were doing ok... for the past 2 month on the Production Project, till last Friday. Seems that one our VFX artist, the most important member (i doubt he realizes it) is going on another course in 2 weeks, leaving the rest of us (3 just to let you know) to finish up his shit. -_-"

Like WOW... Initially, i was thinking to just finish up my part and start looking for a job, but hey, now i've gotta push all my plans back and finish whatever he left behind for us to die with. And the best part is that I've got no idea what the hell that a**hole has been doing the past 2 months. Because the lighting i saw on Friday, is no different from the one i saw 2 months back... So what has he been doing??? I don't wanna know... All i know is that if we don't get our project done, we're not getting our diploma.

I know what you are thinking:
So if you guys finish it, you guys get the diploma, but doesn't he basically piggyback you guys?

I've got your answer:
Nope, he only gets a certificate of completion, not a diploma.

Well, least it's fair enough for us. Hopefully the school doesn't go back on their words.

But ENOUGH of the depressing stuff.

Although it's been busy, I've had some fun happenings recently.

First off. I went to Universal Studios Singapore~!!! XD

Although the main attraction (2 roller coasters) is still not open, yea, kind of wasted :(

It was still fun~! There were sooo many rides that were so so awesome~! There was the exhilarating, yet terrifying The Mummy Ride, the fun 4D Shrek show which blows your senses away, and the fun Jurassic Park Rapids Ride. But it's too much to type, and i think i cannot explain it, the experience is just beyond explaining in words alone, you'll have to go experience it yourself :D

The other happening is that i've made a new friend.

Oh, you'll be thinking, pffft, a friend, what's the big deal? Ok, so what about a korean pen pal?

Yep, I've recently made a pen pal from Korea, and my perspective of e-mailing just changed~ Although we've only recently started, it's so exciting to know that I'm actually making a friend miles away from Singapore.

It's just so different when you start using e-mail compared to Instant Messengers like MSN or Yahoo Messenger. I feel so much more expressive and one can perhaps say that, although I don't know my pen pal. I feel connected on a different level because I have never thought that I could relate to someone from another part of the world.

Perhaps you guys should try it too :D

So that's all for now. Gosh i gotta start blogging more often...

So till next time, cheerio~ :D

OOoooo An update!

Yo yo yo! It's been what? 2 months since my last update?

Well, school's been kinda hectic with the final phase of the diploma phase.
Simply put it: Busy with final production project XD

So yea, I've been thinking, that when school's over and done with. It'll be the time to get a job, find a place of my own (or well, rent a place with some of my friends) and work on my career. But i guess that's normal? It's the usual cycle that perhaps everyone will go through and face through most of thier life? Well unless they are rich or something...

Another thing, I wonder if I'm just a indecisive person? Or is it that every choice I'm stuck with, it's actually a hard decision to make? I don't know if the mentality of: * Never being good enough * is actually stopping my progress in life, or pushing me forward every step of the way. But i guess life has it's own surprises? So who knows... :P

In another way, it's always good to think? At least i know i'm somewhat normal? hahaha

Anyways, i've got nothing to add for now... So till next time... Cheerio~! :D
