I’m going to challenge myself this year by focusing on what I had been really wanting to pursue, and to pay attention to a few things I also hope to improve on. That includes photography. In the coming days, I’ll be posting random snapshots and some musings that go along with it. Moreover, The Dogwood Challenge 2019 is also a weekly activity I hope to accomplish successfully until the end. If you haven’t heard about it, Google is your friend. Just hit search. 🙂
The past weeks gave me time to reflect and it’s one of those phases where I truly had the chance to detach myself from thinking about my career. The past few years have been about ‘hustle’, in Filipino, ‘raket’. Raket dito, raket doon, and even when your flame is burning passionately, it’s a flame that’s bound to lose its spark one day. May be mine needs some rest or some rethinking. It’s not a sign of giving up, but a period of reevaluation.
Here’s also hoping that by the time that I’m going to share some spontaneous brain farts / reflections from my readings/ research on my film studies, you benefit from it as well. I’ve yet to unearth a goldmine of information and reflections from the movies I have watched, the texts I have consumed. I’m definitely no film critic but may be instead of passively consuming all these media texts, we can also actively participate in creating them? Good way, nonetheless, to process information and contribute to the discourse.
It’s going to be a busy year, I am sure. And I hope to anchor 2019 on improvement and gratefulness. And I’m really eyeing that magic word: focus.
So to start… here is a picture.
No profound epiphanies here yet. ) but i love to look at it because of its aesthetic simplicity, and because it represents much about hope and growth, two things I’ll look forward to this year.
