Happy New Year everyone :D
I know it has been a while since I have blogged (the last time was the day before finals night? Wow. Time goes by fast!), and since it is the end of the year, also soon to be my end of reign, I shall give you some small updates!
Hi everyone… So, because I loved Harrison‘s photography skills so much, we managed to do a shoot again, but in much nicer weather (see blog on first shoot). We did the shoot on June 18th, 2014, which was during the first week of my summer vacation, and the location was the field beside No. 4 Road and Alderbridge Way in Richmond BC.
On April 21st, 2014, I did a photo shoot with the best photographer, Harrison Ha. Harrison is a reporter/photographer for Sing Tao Daily Newspaper, and we knew each other through my interview with the newspaper, as he took some of the pictures of me for the article (see blog post about this).
The past month and a half has been filled with laughter, smiles, and plenty of dancing. I will dedicate this blog to everyone I worked with for all my performances and competitions.
Like I mentioned in my introduction post, I am actively involved with my school newspaper, Viking View. My article on Free The Children was published in the June issue this year, and be sure to check it out!
My favourite hobby is dancing, especially when I am with people that I care about.
On Fri. May 16th, my team competed at Dancity 2014 at Windermere Secondary, Vancouver BC. We did not receive any awards, but we did receive lots of experience and new skills.
Hi there! How’s it going? :D
Recently, just for convenience and for fun, I created a business card for myself. I love designing, sketching, and any other artsy projects, so this wasn’t particularly challenging but it did take me a long time.
I used Pages by Apple to design this, although my digital art geek friends probably would have suggested Photoshop. I love the properties Photoshop has, but the simplicity of Pages was what attracted me to use it.
Besides, I am still a newbie to PS, so it would probably take me even longer to create this masterpiece I am about to show you.
This blog is an extension to the last blog, but I thought it was appropriate to separate them because I had a lot more to talk about. This event triggered a great deal of my interest on my family history.
On April 17th, myself and five other grade 10 girls from my school were picked to see Colonel Chris Hadfield at Hard Rock Theatre, Coquitlam, where we attended an event called “Create Your Future” organized by the BCIT School of Transportation. I honestly don’t know why we were chosen, but we were a lucky bunch, and seeing Chris Hadfield in person was definitely a spectacular experience.
On April 9th, I accomplished a goal that took me more than 10 years to achieve: I passed my Royal Conservatory of Music piano level 10 exam. I feel quite weird about finishing this long and incredible journey where, when I was young, I would have never imagined that I could make it to the end. The thought that all my practicing was worth the time is very satisfying and overwhelming at the same time.
