Productive Breaks

February 6th, 2011 · 10 Comments

My blog isn’t dead. I’m just taking productive breaks :). As always, I’m preoccupied with my day job. I realized this structured office life has been going on for 3 years. It’s quite difficult to sustain passion when it’s draining all your energy. So, I strictly finish and leave work in office and get a life after 6. However, by doing this, seems like I’m not learning anything new. I’m stuck with my roles and responsibilities in the office.

Soooo, I decided to make time for studying and enrolled myself in Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts. I’m currently taking short courses of multimedia arts during the night. Going home around 10 pm feels zen. No traffic jam, no crowds, just me sitting in the upper deck  of the bus with my book.

There are 3 things that’s keeping me right now. Work, School, and Cityville. :P

    Haha! I feel the same way about my job. You know, working for someone else during the day, and working for myself at night.
