Since last year near the end of the year, I had wanted to write something like a new year resolution. I couldn’t write it because I still feel pretty insecure of the future, sometimes I lost hope, but recently I see some hopes again. So before that I would like to reflect on year 2015. I have created a timeline to show what I have worked on in the past year.
Got some achievements right there, I got my portfolio website running and had it populated with quite a bit of works. It’s better than year 2014, although financially it’s much worse as I spent lots of time just working on portfolio.
I am not really working hard enough, I would slip in plenty of anime, dramas and movies during working days. My working pattern actually goes up and down, like I would work for long hours for 3 days and on the fourth day I would suddenly couldn’t make myself to do any more works, I would slip into watching shows for a day or two and slowly get back into zone. That’s how it’s like for most part of the year until the last few months when I start working on Retool, my working habit has stabilized. I am able to do some work every day consistently. Even if I am interrupted for like half a day, I can get back to working right after that. I mean I have had much less mood swing and it’s easier to get into the zone.
The freelance works I did doesn’t generated much of an income, I am not quite sure whether I still lack in skills, whether I am not looking hard enough for jobs, or I am looking at the wrong place (I am sure is the last one). Finding freelance jobs is still hard, and when I do find it, the pay wasn’t really great. I am looking to join a company this year, I have been wary of joining any company thus far because I always end up stressed in a company but let’s approach it a little bit differently this time.
2016 starts out great, I will work harder this year as well, 2016 here I come!!! and finally I have to thanks Framemotion, Lovepreet and the Teddy bear client for providing me character works
Happy 2016 Everyone!!!
