Night Out with Glitter

To be honest with you guys, there hasn’t been much going on happening in my life. My life, is just not that interesting. My daily routine is pretty 98% the same thing. Life of the unemployed, job seeking and freelancing person. When friends messages me asking how am I, I always give them the cliche answer haha. But I’m gonna post about my outing last week.

We planned on a Friday evening to have dinner and karaoke. We planned to meet up in the city as everyone was scattered. Work, already in the city and at home. We decided to eat at a Japanese BBQ place. My friend and I arrived there first and got a table, in case there’s a queue and getting busy as it’s a Friday. I think we waited for about 15 minutes when everyone arrived and started to order food, just as everyone hadn’t had dinner. We  chatted along with eating. I know the others were full, I was alright just satisfied compared to when we had Korean BBQ.

After eating, the friends decided on wanting to do some shopping, clothes shopping. I actually had no mood to buy anything or shopping in general (saving up for a piece of technology). The shop we went into had a sale. I just walked around, browsed around and tried on some things. Everyone had a bag each lol. With our leg and feet tiring out and drained from shopping we headed to karaoke. We first went to one near us, but they had all rooms booked. So we went to the one we had always been gone to. However, whilst heading there, we walked passed a free glitter face make-up. One wanted to do it and decided for us that we should all have it done. One friend went unique while the rest of us went for the same thing. But it looked great on her. After getting it done, we finally went singing.

We arrived home around 3:15am. I think it’s a first time being out till this late. Funny thing is that I woke up around 9:30am and couldn’t fall back to sleep. But that day, I felt my eyes were drowsy.

Becoming a Coffee Snob

Haha not really though…but since I do have a bit of knowledge of coffee making and what makes a good cappuccino, then probably I’ll be a bit more judgemental, but I’ll still drink the coffee. Previously, I had mentioned before that I was taking a barista course. I did it and it was absolutely fun and experience. Majority of the class was practical, that’s a good way to teach people. It was more enjoyable since I did it with a friend and her sister. I could say that we made a lot of mess in our area, keeping spilling coffee when we trying to bring it to the middle table and stretching the milk till it over flows to the floor. We did clean after ourselves. During the progress, we (the class) did become more accustomed on making coffees, that’s what the teacher said. The last lesson was taking orders from the whiteboard. The teacher listed 5 coffees and make what we have learnt. Lucky for the 3 of us we worked as a team. Taking turns on making the espresso, foaming the milk and pouring to make the correct coffee.
The end of the day, we got our certificate of completion, clothing smelled like coffee and hungry. The experience was fun. I also booked myself in to do a coffee art course. So, I cannot wait for it.

The Down Moment

Working.jpg

I had mentioned in previous posts. There was this one moment in my life in 2016 that made me felt pretty negative. Oh my god, is this going to be like a story time post. I never know how these post turns out. I just pour out the thoughts from what I can remember, then I’ll review and edit it.

First I want to say that, everyone gonna have one of their down moments and I had one of them. Not anything special.

I should begin where I was working on this project, which is was great of an opportunity for my team. Big for us, we’re working on this brand and cool for our portfolios. However it was meant to be a 3 months project as that the people (I assumed like the producers role they have) we had teamed up was aiming for that duration to complete it. Also to mention we get paid when the project is completed from profit. So during the production, we’re working for no pay, which could be expected in this industry I’m in. I had hoped that it was gonna be give or take, because you never know if anything is gonna happen like bugs, changes from feedback and etc…That 3 months expanded for (wished to be) another 3 months. That’s fine. We got down the mechanics and the design as we were been okayed with it and move on trying to finish it. I’ve put my best effort on working on my part. I wasn’t sure if I was working hard, because I performed 6 days a week and start around 8am-8pm (with breaks of course). I think stress came to me which is not that common for me. This lead me burst into tears in my bed. At the time my thoughts on my mind were “what the heck?” I half knew and half didn’t know why I was in tears.
The next day, I had a chat with a good friend and that relived me. I moved on and worked. I still had that depressing feeling but not as bad as before. I saw that I only had a few pieces left to complete. Suddenly, we got this message about they weren’t happy with the look and wanted to bring another person in to create another look.

That moment when I read that message, I exploded with tears and mixed with feelings, in front of my desktop screen. Sad, angry and stress at the same time.  It made me questioned everything in my life and my existences, in a negative way.

What made me upset the most was my time was wasted and the work as well. Yes, some ideas and designs could not be in use, if the higher ups don’t like it and continue to keep up with the concepts mid the pre-production stage, that’s normal. Yet, they gave us the okayed on the look and move onto the production. Basically, we went to from stage 1 finally moving up to say, stage 7 then back to stage 1. Trust me this happened a few times in the beginning.

I’m not sure if this made me sounds like a diva or entitled or something, beats me. I had worked on projects before when I was still studying and once I graduated. All went fine and  there were minor changes were made. From what one of my teammate had said, and I kind of agree, was that they don’t seem to know how the pre-production/production works. They had worked on another projects before, but I don’t think they’re not actually involved with the labouring parts.

To be honest, I’m kind of afraid on I had posted this and probably be judged on my thoughts with this situation. As I said before, I don’t want to sound like a entitled person. I believe I’m still new within the industry even though now it’s been 2 years, I guess it’s still new-ish compared to others. But anyways, that’s my story to share. Perhaps maybe, I’m gonna edit this again after coming back to this post over.

Talk about boring…

I’ll post something more happier. Presumedly, my third part of my Carins trip. Totally forgot about that.
