I have started my evening make-up course for bridal and special occasion. The plan was to go through this course and maybe make it a side income, doing things that i really enjoy, as a sideline. Not sure about the possibilities, but that was the plan anyway.
Regardless, i can say, this is only one thing that i look forward too. Since i don't look forward to work, so my emotional well being do depend on this hobby to keep my sanity. Needless to say , i depend on Christ for survival.
I have had three lessons so far.First lesson was basic make up, second face shape correcting, lip and eyeliner techniques. I am quite fortunate that i don't have to spend lots of money on the tools etc and the make up , as i have all, if not most of them. Being greedy, i was tempted to buy an eye-shadow palette with 130 colours. But i parked that for now, as i have all the essentials. Today we are going to learn about sultry eyes.I personally don't think it goes well with chinese oriental eyes, but we shall see.
I have stopped my korean lesson because there wasn't enough student to start a class last term and i need to save a bit of money. Jazz piano i am still thinking about it now, whether i should resume or admit to the fact that i am just so tuned to real jazz, those herbie hancock type of jazz, not those blues-jazz that you normally listen to, like norah jones. Still thinking.
I like feeling excited about things. I found that growing up and being adult has made me less excited. Maybe it's my job that is dulling my senses, or maybe it's my complacency. I am excited about being excited.I look forward to fridays, the day i have my make-up lessons.
I do ask myself why there's not a lot that excites me nowadays. Have i become too comfortable or have i blunt my senses? Have i forgotten to look at the blue sky, smell the flowers, feel the petals. There was once when i was feeling extremely down the moment i stepped into office, and my colleague greeted me with a smile. At that instance, my heart was warmed.
Upon reflection, there wasn't much moments like those.
Have i been forgetful? Or
have i been too busy rushing my way to register? or
my heart has been too crowded with other things to make room for what is really important
