Re-Inspired

This is a blog post which I wrote a year ago on my tumblr. I felt re-inspired again when I read it so thought I’d post it here.

Today, I read an interview that I came across a while back. It’s been a while since I have been this inspired. Ryan Feng, I give thanks to you for being amazing.So the interview I read was on The Other Asians by Julie Zhan. Although I had skimmed through the interview, I am happy I came across it again.I recently made a post called Losing Faith , which was about me not being happy with Quest any-more. I now realise that I wrote that post when I was upset. Now I have stopped and decided to look at my opinion in a different light. And Feng made me remember why I love Quest.

Feng speaks about how the crew work together and how they hate each other but in a brotherly way:

‘But it worked out for us because we hated each other in a loving way.Like I can hate on my crew, but no one else can. I got their backs andwe love each other.’

But, Feng also inspired me in other ways than just re-finding my love for Quest. He speaks about who he is. This has inspired me to embrace myself and not care so much about what others are like.

‘Be who you are, and let that be the definition. It’s like being in love.What does that mean to me? What does that mean to you? It’s differentfor everyone, but there’s only one word for it.’

Everyone is different.

Feng thank you for making me realise that you can pursue more than one career. Although you said yourself you aren’t a a photographer or a writer, you made me realise that If I want, I can be creative in more than one way, like artists.

‘What I can express in dancing won’t come out in writing. But what I canwrite can’t be expressed in dancing. What I photograph can depict whatwriting can’t, etc, etc. Those are my three main avenues that I feelcomfortable expressing myself in. Will I become a photographer orwriter, I don’t know.’

I am going to confess that I dance in my room! haha. It’s embarrassing but, oh well! And although I don’t see myself becoming a dancer, your words of wisdom to aspiring dancers, has inspired me to get serious about what I love to do and what I want to be part of my life.

‘If you want to dance and you want dance to be a part of your life, justdo it. You don’t have to book a job or have other people tell you you’regood to be a dancer. But if you want to book jobs, go out of your comfort zone and learn everything. Get used to people telling you you’re not good.’

So, thanks for inspiring me again Feng!

Oh and congrats on making it to Europe with Quest! It wasn’t the whole of Quest, but I enjoyed watching you perform with LMFAO and I think I was screaming more for Quest than LMFAO! =P Although I didn’t actually get to meet you guys, it was an amazing experience to see you perform!

Hope to see you in London again!!

It’s been ages!

Hello,

I feel like not a lot of people follow this blog, so I feel like I am talking to myself! But if you do come across my blog, HEY!!!

Update on me:

I finished level two of my degree in early May. As I had a lot of spare time on my hand, I thought I would start blogging more. However, I have had the busiest two months. I’ll explain.

So in January, I applied for a job that my friend recommended me for. They called me back in April and asked me to come in for an interview! As you all know I hate my current job, I was ecstatic! So I went in, it went well. One week later I got a phone call telling me that I have got the job!
(But unfortunately, I am still stuck at my old job because the new one is not permanent yet.)
I started work there last week and I love it!! The people are nice, the job is interesting, I’m happy!

I know, a new job doesn’t make life overly busy. So here is the big news!

I am going to Korea to study for a month!! I’m not sure if you know, but I love East, North-East and South-East Asian culture!! So this is an amazing opportunity for me! My university is paying for tuition and accommodation, so all I pay for is flights and spending money!

I am very excited! SO… hopefully when I am out there, I will do vlogs and more blog posts since I will have something specific to talk about!

Anyway, it’s time for me to sleep as I have work tomorrow morning! But I will be updating you guys (if there is anyone there) very soon!
