Hello all! Welcome to my first post! I can’t believe my favourite month has passed so quickly. I had a stroll in the park a few days ago during Chinese New Year holiday after a big submission. The weather was just perfect, I wandered through the garden maze and sat down on the nearest wooden bench and had a mini reflection on looking at my drawings and physical models options. I also did something unusual which I start sketched out an Action Plan Template for myself which I am excited to share this out, the colour palette was inspired by the park. I test printed on cartridge paper and recycled paper, both work great actually. I have always written things I need to do on my notebook, but I want something I could stick it on my desk, which I can fill it in the morning every day.
I can totally see the year of rooster 2017 is the radical change and the year to be excellent in management both at work and outside of work. I have also been thinking to create a blog for a while but since I am an Olympic procrastinator outside work, it didn’t happen until now. I could stare at the Flamingos in the park and be thinking the reason I procrastinate and begin to start with the “what if” kind of questions or even the name the blog, shall I call it Assemblages which borrowed from Deleuze? What about the Absolute blog? This is why setting deadlines are great otherwise this is absolutely not going anywhere. After several debates, I decide not to make it too complex for now, the reason of me starting a blog is really a personal journal engaging the audience and it’s really a hobby so let’s keep it simple. I think the Action list could definitely organise my outside work too.
So here I am, the blog is essentially on design inspiration, little things I try, discover, rediscover that I could exchange and share to my friends and the world. Well, I confess the blog is not gonna be perfect, and words, photos or collages might look peculiar but they are mine and view from my eyes.
Anyone who just recently start a blog and any tips from someone who has been blogging for years who is reading this? Let me know how you get on with this Action List too! And Happy Chinese New Year Everyone!
