Feeling Lost, Something New, Just Do It

Feeling Lost, Something New, Just Do It–  Hi all, it’d been a few weeks since I’ve posted something here, and I guess it’d been quite a long time I write something personal, a thought. Recently, as usual I am and will be so much busy with the design assignments that I’ve, only until end of May I will put an end to it and that’s the end of my interior design study. I don’t know, it seems that as time goes by, my interest and passion in working out on the interior design project has diminish. I feel lost, but I still haven’t given up on it yet as I’m still like looking at beautiful spaces on website occasionally and still love planning clean concept space. It’s just, I’m not as passionate as other interior designers out there. Hmmmmm.

Somehow, the other side of me is unleashing a crave to swim in the sea of entrepreneurship, it’s just something that I’ve never thought of and I hope it’s not too late to get a grasp on it. I was inspired by lots of Youtube videos about startup, and entrepreneurship, e.g. how former Alibaba’s CEO Jack Ma started the company, The Startup Kid & lots of TED talk. The videos somehow trigger my mind to lean away from what I’m doing right now which they were quite motivating and inspiring. It seems like I am enjoying this more than that. Well, I would surely wanted to explore this new field someday in the future (soon that I hope, not today, too much of assignments), yet I still don’t want to dump the skill that I’ve gained in the past 3 years in university about designing spaces for people. What can I do?

The thing about me is the lack of perseverance of doing something (which has been in me for some times and I hate it)t, I realised for anything to success, perseverance is more important than anything else, not to mention courage, and determination. I am not trying to ask for any opinion in this rambling post, nor to tell the world about me lacking perseverance, it’s just that at this moment, I felt that I need to write it down, tell myself that I must work hard and determine in doing something right now, ‘I am 22 years old, I want to do it, I have to do it and I must do it.’, it’s not high school nor college anymore! No more slacking and just gonna get shit done and just do it. When I recalls this post in the future, hopefully I will be proud of myself of later because of today. To those who are lack of the determination to do something, I hope that you can start telling yourself, ‘ fck that sh!T, just do it now’. – Good night, it’s warm here in the UK, just 7 degree celcius, welcome to Spring 2014.

    Hi Nick! Stumbled upon your blog, saw the title and had to drop by for a bit. I get what you’re feeling and it really is a pick-myself-up kind of situation. No one could help you, but fret not. It happens to even the best of us. The fact that you’re stil hanging on, it means something. =) keep up the writing, it kept me sane through the years when I’m lost too. Awesome blog!

    ps: It takes consistency & perseverance to keep a blog alive, so you’ve got it in you~
