The Other Promise

In the end, I could not achieve my goal
of completing my thesis draft by the 26th of November
All the completed chapters require revision
and those uncompleted parts remained uncompleted
Academic writing seemed so difficult to me
as every statement require fact-checking

Actually, I made a point of going to Melbourne at the end of November
and used that as a reminder for this deadline that I have set for myself
Argh... this is so frustrating...

Hmmn... I guess I haven't spend any time
to reflect on my recent activities
so now I will be doing just that

Standard photoshoot with cosplayer friends in which I made the 2D scene into life.
But I didn't render any of those flame. I merely used existing photo stocks...

Everlasting Transeunt

I haven't done any video gaming as of lately
as I am busy with my thesis-writing
And I believe this will go on until mid-September
Now, as I am deprived of my video game aesthetics
I could only rely on my imagination to fill in that void
But I am sure once I have completed my studies
The outcome will justify the effort that I have put forth

Destiny's Union

I love video games just as much as I like good written stories. But I am greatly amazed by video games because itself is a medium is composed of various elements, such as visual art, writing, spoken dialogues, gameplay, animation cutscenes and music that works in tandem to create an immersive experience for the players. Written stories, particularly novels and short stories leave room for your imagination to recreate the scene being described in the writing, which include the smell, the touch and the feeling of the character. Your imagination of the scene may be limited by the words being written. If the description fall short, then the readers would usually fill in the blank with their imagination. In fact, all good stories encourages the viewers to use their imagination to enhance the storytelling experience. In some cases, the viewers were able to use their imagination to fill in the plot holes!

I'm Going All Out

Sigh, the girls in my office talk so much, I really have to put on my noise-cancelling earphones so that I can concentrate on my work or my (manga) reading. Sometimes, I wonder if they come university on their research or do they come here to socialize. Holy cow, it's been half an hour since then and they are still chatting!

Well, I am going all out. I plan to finish my lab work by end of July and start my pilot plant testing next month. Not gonna give too much attention to them,  but it's not like I can totally ignore them.

To the Future that Awaits Ahead

To be honest, I find that my time spent at ACG events was rather wasteful. After all, whenever I go to events, I hardly take any photos anymore. There are more cosplayers at events, but there are less people doing cosplays from the series that I like. Furthermore, the viewcount on the photos that I have taken and uploaded onto my blogs are ridiculously low.

Even if I were to cosplay, there are no longer anyone who would hangout with me. Just like yesterday, besides my best friend who came to the event with me, most of my other friends from the ACG community did not have the time to have a proper chat with me. In recent times, it was my intention to come to these ACG events to socialize. But regretably, I never achieve my goal. As such, I started to feel that coming to these events is quite a waste of my time.

Perhaps I could no longer relate to the happenings in the ever-changing ACG community and my peers as well. And I truly wonder what can I do to overcome this obstacle. I am totally clueless about any possible solution besides spending my time on other hobbies.

In Circles

Have you ever heard of the video game Transistor?
A friend of mine recommended the game to me,
knowing that I like good game music.
And so I started playing the video game many years ago
But I was never motivated to finish the game
Because most of the game setting was unclear to me
and there was no log or journal to keep track of the characters.
But finally, I had the motivation to complete the game yesterday.
