Hello! My name is Vivian and I'm 17. I'm a student in Singapore pursuing Diploma in Animation.

Here's a little summary about my life so far.
I started drawing everyday ever since I went to kindergarten. Drawing has always been my hobby and something that I enjoy doing. I find inspiration from music, motivational quotes and movies. When I was a kid, I used to have magnetic drawing boards. Whenever one broke, my mother would buy me another one. Everyday, I spent hours drawing out random stories on my magnetic drawing board. Nothing was able to entertain me as much as drawing!

I used to draw so much that I didn't care about my studies... and you know that's bad! I didn't fail my subjects horribly but most of them were borderline passes. I got a considerably low score for my first national exam. (Could've been worse though) While more students in my class were going into the "Express" stream, I went into the "Normal Academic" stream, which was a 'middle' sort of academic stream. From then on, I woke up and studied hard. I climbed my way up to the "Express" stream one year later, an achievement I never thought I could achieve. I had great support from my friends as well.

I have met many kinds of people. Some who taught me life lessons.. some who prepared me for what's to come.. some who changed my perspective of the world and life.. some who kept me going during the darkest of times... some who stuck with me when I was at my worst... and some who just makes me feel deeply loved and remembered.

However, in secondary school, I did the opposite of what I did during primary school. I slowly lost interest in my hobbies. I stopped drawing and playing video games just to dedicate all my time to studying. I eventually stopped drawing by the 4th year of school. I realised during the period when I stopped drawing that I felt that I have been drained of my happiness. Then I realised drawing is therapeutic to me and I can't live without it. Yes, I did receive truly excellent results during the national exam, but I sacrificed my passion for it. So from that, I learned that there should be a healthy balance between work and play.

Now, I've graduated from secondary school and is studying Animation in a Polytechnic. I've made many friends, (well my circle of friends is still kinda tiny) and my grades so far are okay. I've been pushing myself to talk more to friends because I cherish people who encourage me and stand by me even through my worst times. There are also people whom I wish I can spend more time with (because, you know, everyone has someone they're interested in/curious about *cough*) and talk to them more often, but at the same time, I don't wanna seem like a creep. haha!

Happy Tuesday, everyone! :'D

Sorry, I didn't make any Valentine's Day drawing this year! Been focusing on schoolwork. And I've kept my 14th February more private this year. haha
Last Saturday, I went back to school to redo my 2D animation assignment. I didn't like how my previous attempt was going so I re-planned everything digitally since it was easier and quicker for me.

Students don't usually have to head back on a Saturday and the facilities are mostly closed. There was no air-con as well! I didn't realise that until I got to school already. So I did my animation without the air-con, it was so stuffy but it was also motivation for me to work faster and leave.

About 3-4 hours later, I heard something get turned off, it was like an air-con/ventilation thingy that wasn't operated from controllers in the room, so afterwards it felt like there's no ventilation at all. I panicked and rushed out of the room as quickly as I could. ^^; I managed to make good progress in my work so I guess the risky trip was worth it.
First week of school was alright, besides the exhausting mornings when I have to get out of bed at 6.30am. It was a productive week. And right now, I got past the 8am classes for this week. Some things have been troubling me, but I'll stay strong and hopefully change my mindset soon.
Just gonna leave some words for thought here.

Make every day of your life count. Complete an assignment, watch a movie, improve your skills bit by bit, learn something new, do some reading, save a bit of money every day, make some progress every day no matter how small. You have to make that change, you have get up on your own and make a difference. Every action, no matter how big or small, accumulates and will bring about a greater outcome eventually.

If you can make each day meaningful and accomplish something small every day, how could you say that your whole life is dull or meaningless? :)    
Hey guys! So just a bit about how I've been doing lately.
In school, I'm currently learning 3D modelling and animation using Maya, I've been doing gesture drawings, 2D traditional + digital animation, storyboarding, a bit of filming and video editing, painting for colour theory. It's been tiring. And I just found out I barely couldn't get selected for an award for the top percentage of students (in terms of grades) in my cohort. Oh well, it's a wake up call for me to work harder now.
