As I flip through my bills, tuition fees, and exam scores, I realized something. I am now doing exactly what my parents have been doing all these years. While it feels awkward, I am now facing adulthood, and thus, my responsibilities. I gained a lot of knowledge, but I lost something as well.

Remember those days when you were running freely on the playground, unconcerned about troubles of the world?

When I was little, my friends and I went to a garden once. We caught some butterflies and nailed them for our projects. But I wasn’t thinking too much back then. It was just a naïve, pure experience.

But if I look at it from my somewhat adult-minded point of view now, I thought I should have been a bit more considerate with the death of those little bugs. Or, I would've find squashing them gross.

Although it was just a simple butterfly, it showed how much my thinking has changed since then. Even though it was just a bug, I realized… yes, I think too much now, just like any adult. ;D

Perhaps there were more colours of living back then, but I could be wrong. At least, childhood is like a ticking time bomb. The next thing you know, everything blurs and turns black. Whether that is a good or bad thing, I do not know. Maybe, just maybe, I could turn the greys and blacks into a brand new palette of vivid colours.


Something I wrote during my 19th birthday. And this pic was originally sketched based on it. Oh and excuse my terrible English ;D. I know it's weird but I always write a half page about my views on my birthday every year, just so I can come back to it years later and laugh at my naive thinking.

I thought about doing a shoe or bag for myself with this design on it. That’s why the lines and colours are rather solid and sometimes thick.

I wish you guys the best of luck in school and work as the dreadful September draws near.
