Hello guys, it's been a long time I haven't updated any journal. Well, no one is going to read it anyway ha ha ha.
I just received an email of offer from Savannah College of Art and Design, Hong Kong for Bachelor degree. I am happy for the USD $4,000 "Achievement Scholarship" they awarded me per academic year too. It is not a scholarship for artistic talent but more into non-academic achievements, I guess.
If everything is going well, I'll be moving to Hong Kong this late August. I am planning to take major in Illustration. I hope I chose the right path. I want to gain knowledge and learn the skills as much as possible for my future (and my personal satisfaction too). May God give me perseverance and determination.
For years, I planned to go to Singapore for my studies. It is a mixed feelings of... disappointment, confusion, and other things that I couldn't describe because the 'thing' that you wanted so badly did not turn out as how you planned. I prayed for the right major too, I was confused whether to take Communication Studies or Fine Arts. I am interested and I see potential in both major. However, all except one universities in Singapore that offer major in Communication Studies rejected my applications. Now everything is clear to me.
Right now, I decided to accept the offer from SCAD Hong Kong. If God is willing, I pray that everything will go smoothly. May everything goes as planned. I learned so much from the struggle in worries, regrets, and rejections these past few months. Through constant prayers, I grew my faith and learned to trust more in Him. Little by little I learn to accept things sincerely, and let God plan the best for me.
The good thing is, if everything goes well, I am happy that I have the chance to learn more about my passion, which is drawing. I am excited for the adventures Hong Kong is about to offer me. I am also very thankful that I won't be lonely because I have a wonderful company with me too... Thank you Lord for providing me a way, may everything goes well.
