Personal Notes from 2016
I have been experiencing the always wanted freelancer life. It's definitely a lot more work than it seems but it's the best "job" I've ever had.
1. I have learned a lot about video production as a freelance videographer.
2. It's a lot of fun learning French and French culture. I would not be able to appreciate French restaurants and their passion for food this much had I not attended any French class.
3. 2 things I learned about myself -
A: after reading "the Happiness Project", my brain book and "Quiet", I realized that I'm an typical ambivert. 50% extrovert and 50% introvert to almost exact. I would want the exact same amount of creative and "me" time as social time on a "perfect" vacation.
B: Human brain doesn't like multitask. NOT at all. In fact, when we think we are multitasking, human brain is just switching from task A and task B constantly and it for sure burns more brain power. A lot more. Once I'm aware of this, I'm more productive and paying more attention to prioritizing.
5 years ago, I told my friends I would want to visit their hometown, at least home land in 5 years. I unconsciously placed it in my priority list so when the opportunities arose I quit my job and had an amazing trip in US. Chicago - New York City - Wisconsin - Chicago (Greenbay, Manasha, Madison and Dells)
Had a wonderful trip with my bff Lior in Guilin, a place where my parents kept raving about and it deserves all the praise. Also tried rock climbing there and its truly nerve racking. Now I have a better understanding why most people call it a bravery testing sports.
Revisited Beijing. It's such a vibrate city filled with dreams. I would have moved there without a doubt if the air pollution were not so bad.
Revisited Taiwan and Guangzhou. I love these two comfortable places and gradually become quite familiar with them.
Stay true to myself and my dream.
Do More, Work Harder.
