2014 First Post

It’s been two years since I came to WordPress and seven years since I started blogging (old blog at LiveJournal, it’s still up but not quite updated). I have been through ups and downs. I should say that there were more ups than downs and every hurdle I passed made me a better and stronger person. Along the journey I had to say goodbye to some friends and say hi to new ones.

Career-wise, I experienced several changes. Had to say goodbye to mentors and colleagues. But the best thing about the changes that happened this year was I was given much confidence and trust to lead a team and head a department. I am being valued much more now especially that the bosses see what I bring to the company. Thank you. This boosts my confidence and I can see clearly now the path I want to walk on to. I am going to persevere more and hone my skills, get updated by studying further. Hmm… Should I take CMA this year? Oh, Lord, please help me decide.

But more to that, I look forward to what the new year will bring and how much better my company and my career will be. I am claiming that 2014 will open doors to greater heights for the company I am serving and for my flourishing career.

To end this post, here’s the art project I posted several months ago. It’s finally done. I am going to frame this and have it displayed at my workstation at home. I really love Chihayafuru. I hope there will be season three since it’s time for Arata to shine. Crossing my fingers to that. With regards to my drawing skills, well, I should say that I am getting better with it as well. However, I think I still have to learn more about proportions and coloring… Oh right. I am ending this post already.

Happy New Year, everyone!!!

2014 Chihayafuru

Can I reach him?

“… Or, is he still out of reach?”

When I heard (actually read) those lines, I was so happy I blushed. The first time ever again for an anime couple I am rooting for. I wished Chihaya held out her hand further and touched Arata’s hand. Hahaha! I’m such a fangirl!

With that I was inspired to draw Chihaya. This is the very first time I tried drawing her so I opted to draw with a pencil rather than with a pentablet. She’s so pretty my heart fluttered for her and Arata ♥ I was also inspired by a dialogue she actually said in the manga – “I have always liked Karuta and Arata!”
