Shaking the Globe

This world of ours is being shaken at times. Sometimes frequently, sometimes not so much. I wish I know something about the future but how boring life must be with that possibility.
IMG_0579Drinking is not my thing, I do enjoy some drinks because it’s relaxing for the time being. Attacks, shooting, killing … every day someone loses their life. Everyday, people struggle to be alive or live a better life.

Some people believe life has meaning, I envy them with a curious mind.

Pokemon is back with a huge impact. The world is shaken, in good ways and bad ones. I feel sad and keep going back to one quote “anger is the result of misunderstanding” but then again to say everyone deserves forgiveness, I’m not sure I can agree with it.

Getting late in Van. News make me feel heavy, from the world or just a dear friend. Things will be better, so we all hope.

Hope is the one thing that keep everyone on this planet going.

Recently I’ve been feeling strange, taking on big projects and tasks. Feeling empowered by learning yet greedy wanting to learn much more. Maybe it’s just me. Still, the recent events make life a little bit heavier, even breathing is effort but maybe there will be something soon.

The hope is to stay forever hopeful and bright like the sun.

Cheers,

Max

Where are we going? What is the meaning of life?

Hey, long time no post.

I like Yahoo News and I hate it at the same time. But that’s not what this is about. This is about an article on Yahoo news and the comments I occasionally read.

Yes, we human beings can be stupid and dangerous. Some who are smart with sound mind will argue our own stupidity will destroy the planet. And this is all very important because we don’t want to destroy this planet. Because by destroying this planet, we can possibility destroy something else that’s super remote and even we don’t know what we will end up destroying at the end.

What is the end? As if there was a beginning. Was there one, ever?

Sadly I agree with people who believe there is no meaning to life, initially. However or whatever happened. Life is present and we give it meaning ourselves.

If the planet has a heart and mind, would it curse the people on it, killing living things that makes the air polluted and river full of chemicals? I can’t say, I am not the Earth, I cannot put my human judgement to the planet and say hey, we ought to do better than this.

Yet I try not to drive if I can, I try not to use plastic if I can, all because I believe in a human society with rules and regulations. Does that make me smart, stupid or just average.

When I was younger I wished to know all the secrets of the universe and in order to obtain the answers, I was willing to trade my entire life for it. Now I am more laid back, still curious about where we came from and what purpose we had. However, like Sam Black used to tell me in his quiet office, “by the end of the day, people move on and live a normal life…” Yes indeed Sam, I give in. I accept my limitations and yet I remain curious.

A philosophical debate is the best, might be more interesting than coding. In my opinion, the pure joy of logic is great but not compare to reasoning for a purpose.

It’s a pleasure to write and I certainly hope it’s nice to read about what I have in my mind.

Coding is the Future

Having attended and completed my studies at VFS and SFU, you would think it’s enough to have a stable life. You would be right in thinking so, and if not for the 2007-2008 Financial Crisis, I might be comfortably sipping champaign on some beach at this very moment.

Shake it off, let’s be real. What am I up to? Nothing much, just chasing my dreams at an age of 30. (almost there!)

Vancouver has endless amount of schools to explore web design/development options to the point where I’m like shopping in a very very big supermarket with very little knowledge as a first-time consumer. Is that enough hint? You got it, CODING is what I’m after now.

It is the future and who doesn’t want to catch up.

I won’t be a great hacker or even remotely great at that, but to make some simple things happen using logic, I’m confident enough. After all, Philosophy Minor’s got to be useful somewhere 🙂

Trial and error, so far so good. Terrifyingly attempting and weirdly comforting.

 

Plant is for Life

Intense Watercolor Artist … if I could be anything, I’d love to do this for a living. But just being able to do this, being a part of the VerySmallStudio, life has offered so much more.

Life

Life is Round

 

Don’t remember many things that happened in my life. I’m sure there are regrets and wounds, but surviving till this day, I found life most fascinating.

Just when you think you are turning a page to the next chapter of your life, many unexpected events or feelings will pull you back to the old times, flipping back several pages. All this time you thought you are moving forward, it’s just been spinning around. But let’s make it the best spin ever.

When’s the last time I truly felt free, I actually don’t think I ever felt that way.

I walked, I ran, I cried.

I am caged and I imagined as I grow older that one day I shall be fearless and strong, but I helplessly failed to climb back up.

I don’t pray any more because I know it won’t do me any good.

Tears weakens my spirit by the minute, stabs my soft heart, altering my soul.

This is sad and true and far from over, but isn’t this why life is amazing. Life needs to have up and downs and life is a wonderful experience no matter why it is intended that way. At least, you need to believe so.

If you loose this faith you’ll never go back, lost in the mist of doubts and fall as a sad clown.

I sing, I draw, I laugh.

One day I’ll throw away all my troubles and laugh until my last breath.

 

 

Note to self:

One day I might be able to make some money on writing lyrics? Maybe …

Japanese Fabric

My one-day sewing lesson doesn’t make me a great tailor, but I love Japanese fabric for its colors, patterns and you must touch a fabric to know the craftsmanship, it is absolutely true. Enjoy.

CLVR Just Some thoughts

Inspiration strikes most unexpectedly. I love it when it does and I hopeless feel that it’s not me who’s designing but it’s the graphics they want to be born. Anyways, keep on designing.

Better Catch Up!

Better Catch Up!

So this is what everybody’s up to recently, graphic resumes! As vector lover, I know I have much to experiment with. This is just the beginning. I feel I’m more comfortable with colors now than ever. It’s almost strange that it just came to me one day without warning. Very happy!
