30 DAY INTROSPECTIVE CHALLENGE

20. Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?

I think it’s harder for people to look at the good side of things in the society we live in presently. We are more prone to paranoia and negativity.

For me, with my own actions, it’s easier to feel when things aren’t right than to feel that they are.

19. At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?

Since last week.

This sudden urge and interest in classical music, instruments and the piano has made me feel passionate and alive again. 

It’s a good feeling.

Piano Piano!

I’m 22 and I’m only just learning the piano by starting with a crash course on theories.

I know I’m crazy and influenced by Nodame Cantabile but I really feel like this is an interest that will last.

I’m only starting to be really fascinated by the piano and it’s such an an interesting instrument. Heck! I think many of the classical instruments are interesting and fascinating.

From picking up the foundation to realizing the flexibility of similar notes and how soft or hard you press on every key is super exciting. It will eventually become the key to your own interpretation of a certain piece of music.

Damn I’m pumped!

18. What is your happiest childhood memory?  What makes it so special?

This question really made me miss being a kid :(

If anything, I was an eccentric, playful and awkward kid. I loved it.

  • I love playing by myself through imaginative play behind closed doors and acted like I was just hoping on my bed whenever someone came in. 
  • I would draw on EVERY single piece of paper I see. I regretted so much for not taking art lessons when my mom suggested. I actually told her the things that drawing lessons taught would be too boring :(
  • I created countless of games inspired by RPGs and whatever interest me. The most memorable was this GUNDAM game I created with my own drawings that got almost all the boys in my class playing. I was a game master.

Why was it so special? Because I was being myself, honest and comfortable.

Been rewatching Nodame Cantabile for the past few days and I’m still loving this drama. Even though the show can be a little crazy and wacky at times, it’s really help me develop an interest in Classical music.
At the moment, I’m just left with the last 2 movies for the series.
Ueno Juri is just TOO adorable and quirky as Nodame! :D 
My favorite piece of classical music so far would be Ravel’s “Miroirs”.
The show makes me want to travel to Europe so much. The lifestyle they led would feel so comfortable for me. It makes me want to work so hard to get into an UK university.
As of now, I’m glad I’m starting to know how to swim after my first few laps across a deep pool (4.7m). I’m just going to get better. My next interest would be learning the piano and I’m going to start with the theories. 
I know I can get obsessed with shows once in a while but watching this drama has made me feel even more that I should pursue and develop whatever interests I’ve always had instead of holding myself back all the time. 
If anything, I hope this drive just continues to push forward.

30 DAY INTROSPECTIVE CHALLENGE

17. Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset?  Does it really matter now?

5 years ago, when I was 17… 

I guess the most upsetting moment was the sudden break-up with my ex. It was hell back then but looking back, it really doesn’t matter at all. It was immature and just simply kids falling in and out of love.

What matters now is what I do with my future :)

16. Has your greatest fear ever come true?

Hmmm… if there’s anything that’s nearer to being the greatest fear, it’d probably be not making it into Architecture University. 

I don’t know, I honestly haven’t thought much to this extent.

15. Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?

I think being able to make new memories is a sign of moving forward and life should be lived that way.

14. Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?

A good friend who lives right near you.

13. Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?

I think I’m too self-aware to like myself and accept myself as the kind of friend I would want. Friends need to spend time together and often I’d just prefer to be on my own.

I just pride myself in being the best I can be and someone worthy of respect.

I just think that being a genuine and good human being would be more than enough.

12. Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?

I think at the moment, I’d rather be a worried genius because I’m young and I should be taking risks and voyaging on the unknown. I’d probably want to be a joyful simpleton by the time I hit the 40-50’s.

11. Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?

I always hold onto things I’d wish undone and regretful.

I guess from today onwards, I want to focus on what I can work on and not be too carried away by people’s opinions and instead trust more on my guts, intuition and determination.

Ride

It’s been more than a week since my grandma’s passing and surely the week had been weird, tiring, emotional and just different from any other day I’ve went through.

Besides that, one of my peers in camp has been starting to irritate me, getting under my skin and into my head (which I’ve only realized now). I’m disturbed by his behaviour and attitude and like how I’ve always taken things too personally, this one got to me too. 

I only realized it when I was reading through Marc and Angels’ post as usual on the topic of toxic behaviours. People like me always assumed words were being directed at us in one way or another.

But the truth is that it’s more about them than it really is about me, their opinions are simply reflections of how they perceive things and at times, the world. We don’t always have to feed to it and let them get to us in a negative way. We can always choose to take it with a pinch of salt and trust our instincts and intuition more.

I’m just gonna let it go because what really does matter more is what I do from NOW. Things don’t always stay the same and we always have the chance to make a difference.

30 DAY INTROSPECTIVE CHALLENGE

It’s been busy for a while and I’ve forgotten to update on this challenge for nearly a week. So I will do 2 more now and carry on tomorrow.

9. Would you break the law to save a loved one?

Yes, definitely. If I really do love that person.

10. What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?  What’s holding you back?

I have loads that I want to do but not to the extend I can nitpick one yet.

But I’m slowly picking up the pace and doing things I really want to.

If anything, self-doubt and fear always holds me back.
