day 670 – sketch model

image

i like cutting stuff and making models but today’s sketch tower model was almost a costly one. had a really close call as i nearly slit my finger while cutting carelessly fast rushing to finish. being too casual with the xacto knife almost to the point of carelessness. probably a good time thing to slow it down or take a break so not to cause anymore unnecessary damages

胡鴻鈞 – 幸福

really like a handful of his songs to complement a very good voice, this one especially sticks for some reason. it’s on the mellow side, a bit of a change from the other upbeat tunes i like to listen to when at the gym. i never mind seeing his song pop up in my playlist during my drives, kind of like what the song suggests – happiness

resolution series: [seventeen] communicate

the advancement in the technological world has brought us wonders, many of which we never thought possible a decade ago. technology is great when it comes to connectivity and communication. getting up to date has never been easier and getting news out through the ever growing number of social media platforms has never been so convenient. but sometimes it just doesn’t get the message across the right way. its because of all these devices that we get a little too caught up in our own world and forget the big picture of direct contact and interaction. i must admit i am a culprit myself, always staring down at my phone swiping away and checking my newsfeed for updates on things that could probably be put on hold. there are times when it shouldn’t become top priority because there’s someone nearby that may benefit from a little conversation. while it doesn’t mean that we must hide our phones away at dinner tables, it’s a good idea not to be staring at it every waking second. good communication is the key to success; often, the good old fashioned face to face interaction is the most trustworthy one that always gets the message across the proper way. never underestimate the power of eye contact, facial expression and body language. i love my technology for what it brings me and i wouldn’t give it up, but i will always use it with care so technology doesn’t become the downfall of my communication skill
