    Day12 I ordered two books about story boarding and script writing online. I hope I can read it during the scoliosis treatment. As I can finally think of some idea about the story, I felt refreshed. Ah also my tutorial is released and reached 2000shares in the fan page owned by me and my friends haha. Actually I felt irritated while making the tutorial as mentioned. This time I didn't put too much effort on it compared to the previous tutorial.

    Day 11 Today was day off( my instructor told me to rest 1 day per week). I watched a classic anime called Shugo Chara, which is a great story about dreams and goals, targeted at young girl audience. I also did some research on Taoism. I am not a Taoist but Taoism is one of the most prevalent religions in Taiwan. I wish I can draw a comic using the supernatural being appeared in the myth as reference. I had a rough concepts in my mind now and hope that I can construct the story day by day.

    Day 9 I realized that I felt extremely unwilling to refine the draw material that I would post on my friends fan page. Actually we all knew that the thing was useless except attracting fans. Doing it was only a waste of time. This is my 6th material and I was tired doing the tedious and useless work. However, no matter how the environment was, I should had the ability to do the things that I didnt want to do while cumulating the things that are truly important. Otherwise I would suffer when I have to attend nursing school. Daily Goal: V Wake up before 9am V Practice drawing for at least 6 hours Page3 100% , refining the drawing material V Self-teach about story writing for 1 hour X Exercise for 15 mins Also pass Daily limit: V Watching anime: 1 hour V Cutting down sugar intake V NO YOUTUBE BINGE WATCHIN

    Day7 Today I received inquiry about commission from Gamania (a Taiwan game company) My feelings are a bit complicated. I was surprised and happy as I never genuinely receive a commission before(some of my supporter asked for commission before, but I haven't actually worked on one) , and this time is even from a professional company. And the inquiry also represented the admiration of my work from others. But I was upset as I had been nasty to my instructor because of the low paying of commission from Taiwan. When I was small, my dream is to become a freelance illustrator. However, the cost of living in Hong Kong is much more higher than that of Taiwan. I would be starving if I rely on freelance job from Taiwan in the future. Unfortunately, Hong Kong lagged behind in ACG culture and getting local job is impossible to me. For this reason, I even decided escaping to nursing school in order to get a stable well-paid job in the future. I was also disappointed about the meaninglessness of drawing anime style picture as mentioned before. I was working hard on copying drawing of comic, but actually that's a form of escapism from my altitude problem. Anyway, I will receive the commission if the company are willing to give me a chance. Daily Goal: X Wake up before 9am V Practice drawing for at least 6 hours I can't finish a page within 1 day V Self-teach about story writing for 1 hour V Exercise for 15 mins Daily limit: V Watching anime: 1 hour V Cutting down sugar intake V NO YOUTUBE BINGE WATCHING
  8. Cross-stitching sounds like interesting to me as well! Have fun doing it! I hope you can get improvement during the sleep program.
  9. Regarding on your situation in piano practicing, I think you have done well already being a student with at least 8 hours of schoolwork everyday. You don't have to be so hard on yourself. Maybe you can challenge yourself with a piano exams? I don't know if the ABRSM Piano exams is prevalent in your country. In Hong Kong, every piano learner attends this exam to get qualification. For those who get a pass on grade 8 exam, they are qualified to be a piano teacher. (I used to play piano as well but I am not interested anymore so I give up after passing the exam haha) Or you may just pick the songs that you are interested in for practicing. I don't know what songs you like, but I loved to play anime soundtracks in free time Once you devoted yourself on a hobby and let the reward system in your brain work normally, you won't be attracted by video games anymore. The process takes time but you will surely succeed within this detox. Video games are totally not necessary for one who want to acquire true happiness. I can relate to your situation in school. When I was high school, I don't know why I should study the dumb subjects and I just want to practice anime drawing and become an illustrator or mangaka. The true is that not everything in life is the thing that we want. But I realize that we have the ability to handle the things we don't want to do while developing the things that are truly important. Hope that you can feel better after writing the feelings down.

    JRK: I spent 13 hours on the first page...still have 23 pages to go. Anyway thanks for your encouragement . When I was high school I even couldn't spend time on hobbies due to my poor time management.(As being admitted to university is hard in Hong Kong and I should put large amount of time on studying) So I think it's cool of you to still be able to develop skills in non-academic aspects. Private journal is also a good choice(I am too lazy to do it tough). Day6 I realize when I fully focus on developing hobby, I won't have cravings for game! Daily Goal: V Wake up before 9am V Practice drawing for at least 6 hours Progress for record: V Self-teach about story writing for 1 hour X Exercise for 15 mins: FORGOT=.= Daily limit: V Watching anime: 1 hour V Cutting down sugar intake: YEAH!!

  11. I agree with you XDD To me, festivals are more or less the same with normal days. Me and my friends are drawing during New Year Countdown LOL Congratulations on your performance! I appreciate on your passion on music and the willingness to work on it regularly! Nice setting of the reasonable goals. Keep it up.

    JRK: So that's the usage of journal! A journal can force you to reflect on yourself everyday and keep you from losing momentum. Ah yes I am living alone in Taiwan for my scoliosis treatment now so I am provided with a relatively good environment to work. But being self-motivated is the most important thing. Oh wow setting up alarms across the room XDD that means I have to run around to stop the alarm. Great idea. Day5 I spent the whole day playing card and board game with my friends LOL I think maintaining relationships with friends is necessary. And the games were fun too. The copy drawing is not hard but the quantity is large ORZ hope that I could copy the whole episode within this month Daily Goal: Ⅹ Wake up before 9am :10am(Almost!!) X Practice drawing for at least 6 hours: 4.5 hours only due to the board game X Self-teach about story writing for 1 hour : As above V Exercise for 15 mins Daily limit: V Watching anime: 1 hour X Cutting down sugar intake: My fault can't resist the temptation while having meal outside V NO YOUTUBE BINGE WATCHING

    NG: Thanks! Good idea for trying storyboarding here (Although expressing complicated thoughts in English is extremely hard to me T_T)! Let me try it after my copy drawing practice period haha. Ah yes you have a point. I tend to treat fine art and ACG differently. Fine art is about expressing the love towards life and is not confined in art forms. ACG is a more commercial thing and mostly for communication purpose. So picture without content in anime style will be weird to me... JRK: Thanks In order to make improvement in drawing, a large amount of practice is necessary Day4 Everything is fine. The doctor that treats my scoliosis invited me for dinner with his family haha I refuse to think too much today so Happy new year everyone Daily Goal: Ⅹ Wake up before 9am Still can't adjust my biological clock ORZ I can't fall asleep before 4am ahhhhh V Practice drawing for at least 6 hours 3 Hour for making drawing material(will be released in a fan page that owned by me and my friends someday) 3 hour for copy drawing (I draw so slow that only half of the draft are donebetter than nothing) (Original Manga is Jibaku Shounen Hanako-Kun. I love the art style and the story so much!) V Self-teach about story writing for 1 hour I read some content from a Chinese story writing tutorial website. I don't know if here are Chinese user but the link is here: http://www.rocknovels.com/ V Exercise for 15 mins Daily limit: V Watching anime: 1 hour X Cutting down sugar intake: I accidentally ordered a extremely spicy noodle and can't help drinking a ton of sweet black tea LOL V NO MORE YOUTUBE BINGE WATCHING
  14. JRK I am glad that you didn't give in! Believe that the journal will exert its effect once you persist! I am sorry you feel you have to do things alone in this community. From now on I will leave comment everyday!(If you don't mind my poor English) Wish your performance go well!!!!
