El Fili’s sunken ship: Basilio and Huli.
It was indeed wrong of me to neglect creativity and inspiration for academic-related productivity. During the past school year, I sometimes sat down right after exam week and realized how much I missed in youtube, book releases and other activities which I did eagerly before to satisfy my uninspired mind.
I decided to make it a New Year’s Resolution to take a picture of anything I could find so that I could keep my creative side working even if I’m busy. Unfortunately, studies became tougher as the end neared.
Since I just recently finished taking up my final exam for high school, I decided that in the next months before I start college, I will do the following things; the completion of college admission requirements and graduation practices in between:
-Write 1000 words per chapter: which is a real challenge for me because I don’t detail out everything when I write. The News Editor will live on in this kid. I used to write only 500+ words per chapter in my stories, but I’m changing my ways for this year’s summer project.
-Draw, Paint, Shoot: because doing these creative things will help me balance out the words and the visual creativity that I love doing.
-Read a book: I neglected El Filibusterismo and Lord of the Flies, to be honest. I only learned about the books through class discussions and classmates’ narration. I want to read something not school related, probably something different. I haven’t touched paperbacks or hard bounds for a while, so i guess I’ll just dig some books from the ones I picked up from booksales and my grandma’s shelf.
And now, I shall sleep since this is the first time in ages I am having a proper goodnight’s sleep.
