This is the last month – a year in review is much too cliche but I will probably have something come out in January about my YEAR IN REVIEW. If fashion school has taught me anything, its the power of PDF. Working on my publication has been a real chore but since I no longer design much – it will be a cause I can challenge myself with.
I’ve allocated ONE ENTIRE WEEK to work on myself and my self-improvement, self-reflection and self-projection. I can be selfish, I can love myself wholly with the marketing tools that every is starting to realize – is readily available. Yes, I admit I’m a sellout to being a shameless marketing tool. I’ll slow down I promise. But for now, I’m raging full speed ahead as fast as I can without running out of steam.
I’ve got my mandarin lesson tomorrow and I’ve been trying to practice writing but its hilarious how I still write like a 10 year old. Hey, at least I can write ok???? It’s only Tuesday and I feel like there is such a long week ahead of me. I managed to start the week with a workout – how wonderful that truly feels to give my body some attention. Then I dedicated a few hours to Tej, for packing, who’s heading back to the States temporarily. I just picked up a cd of my images from the last shoot I did a few weeks back. Its a lot of running back and forth, picking up cheques, making phone calls, negotiating deals, rocking events, slumbering sober. Who knew that this is what I’d end up with after all the hard work I’ve put into making my life happen for me.
Hardwork is really under-rated. Like the famous Thomas Jefferson said – “The harder I work, the luckier I get!” Nothing I’ve done so far has really come from luck. It’s making my life happen for myself. I can’t land on covers without being in Malaysia so there’s nothing “lucky” about it! My hard work is going to focus on 2009- to be less lazy and more focused on my short term and long-term goals.
I’m designing collaterals for my Resume, Portfolio, Profile, Biz Cards, Reel, and etc… working on my tagline which can’t seem to compete with 2008’s Ready to Unleash the Mui. But be prepared to see something more daring yet intimate, bold yet relatable. Thank you again for supporting, for reading and for sharing your life stories and comments with me. It gets scary trying to be fearless all the time, but I leave it up to God and my daddy always tells me the same. The emails I get have been incredibly sweet. You guys that are rooting for me actually do make my day and make me smile even more.
Thank you for an incredible year thus far …but you ain’t seen nothing yet!
