More of ThisCollapse )

Oh well, so much for the proclaimed hiatus. truth to be told, I'm excited, there's a lot that I want to say and share, yet I just can't, so this is the best I can do right now.

Most of the time, I've found the trait of thinking a lot very useful in my daily life, although many, the thoughts (existing on their own or in a flow chart) do come at a good fast pace and I'm able to process them. Some might say I think too much, but I feel that it really does help me to be more mindful of things and the people around me.

Okay, it makes me laugh when I try to explain this and I don't know if anyone else has experienced this, but recently my thoughts are coming at me too quickly. This blasting is rendering me speechless. Not only do I find it hard to word what I think and feel, I (regrettably sometimes) end up talking off the top of my head. This is really one of the reasons why I'm keeping my hands busy with new things, it enables me to filter most of my thoughts away while I'm at it.

Yeaps, so that explains it I think.


Anyways, had my first day in the bookbinding intensive workshop, which is the only reason why I'm still here in the UK and it's really fun! The degree's done and I'm coming back home in practically a few days time. :)

The project above is something quick that I did today. I just wanted something simple and aesthetically-reliant on the Constantina (accordion) structure of the book. The design's made out of simple layers, the feel of it changes when the book's flat or stretched out.

My 110th attempt to put what I feel in words..

Jun. 29th, 2009 | 04:54 am

I can't drive (yet!) but I thought this was the best way I can think of to illustrate how I feel at this point...

I would imagine my life right now to be at a junction, the engine has stopped for a quiet pause,
even if I peered really hard, the road to take next is still so obscure. Despite this, I don't feel lost or worried, tracing my journey thus far, I know how I managed to get to this point, it was His faithful planning all along.

It's funny to put it this way, but I just feel that God guides me like a good GPS system. It has always been at His pace, through His word and the experiences that He has placed that He shows me the next direction to take. However, being stubborn most of the time, I would either not wait for His next instruction or ignore it, taking my own directions thinking I knew better. Just like any GPS system, He would remind me incessantly that I'm heading the wrong way, asking me to stop being lost and go back in the direction that He wants me to go. :)

While being in this quiet pause, I'm brimming full of hope and dreams, thinking of them makes my heart pound so hard. I don't know where I'll be next, but I have faith that He knows best, with Him I can revel in challenges, I can play, I can do what I am passionate for and be close to the people I love.

"Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Remember, O LORD, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old. Remember not the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you are good, O LORD." Psalm 25:4-7

Ecclesiastes 5:18-20

Jun. 15th, 2009 | 02:16 pm

"Then I realized that it is good and proper for a man to eat and drink, and to find satisfaction in his toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given him - for this is his lot.

Moreover, when God gives any man wealth and possessions, and enables him to enjoy them, to accept his lot and be happy in his work — this is a gift of God.

He seldom reflects on the days of his life, because God keeps him occupied with gladness of heart."
