[Personal] Life direction

, by 雨夜 [アマヤ]

Saw this on my Newsfeed, and thought that it would be nice to share. Original response to a question on Quora.

This is the question:

Life: For a 25 year old who has a lot of interests, and lack of direction in life. How does one pick a happy and fulfilling career?

That sounds a lot like me (but I'm not 25. Yet.). How do you separate real passion from just hobbies and interests? Or can you just work on each of them in turn? Which one do you work on first?

Check out the comic strip answer here! I put a link to the picture because showing it directly here doesn't do it justice (shows up too small here).

So what do you think? I hope it provides you with an alternative view of what you're doing with your life right now (:

And to go along with the randomness of this post, this is the one handicraft that I have been working on for years:

The Last Supper
This was made for my mum's dear friend and colleague for her projected 80th birthday. Sadly, she's passed away due to cancer, but I still want to finish it and present it to her at her grave. がんばってto me!

Next up, check out coverage on Moonfest: free performances at the Concourse, 28 Sept - 30 Sept!

Amaya.

nananananananananananana nanananana

, by dollonstrings

  Recently I asked some friends to help me buy concert goods. Mizuki Nana is one of the strongest influences I have for singing, as well as my all-time favourite singer. =D
Speaking of Nana-sama, some SGrean fans have started an unofficial fan blog. It's not bad, so do give them your support if you support Nana. here!: http://nanamizukisgufc.wordpress.com/
They cover their visits to her concerts, sneak previews of her new songs, etc. =)

I got two nana-scrunchies from Live Union. One to keep and one to proclaim my love in my hair. =)))

[Personal] Internship at CHAT

, by 雨夜 [アマヤ]

Disclaimer: This post is purely my own and do not represent the opinions of any parties/companies mentioned.

A long long overdue post. Earlier this year, I was given the opportunity to intern at IMH's special programme, Early Psychosis Intervention Programme (EPIP) for a month. Like I told my supervisor, I was quite skeptical about the effects and efforts put into all their awareness campaigns. Do they actually work? To what extent do they make a difference? Does the effect last?

The short answer is, they do. The effects are not immediate (delay of gratification, anyone?), but the aim is to equip people with the knowledge that help is available, and where to get help. Also with the hope that these people will pass on this knowledge to other people they meet, who may seem to need some help and support.

Find out more about my internship experience under the cut (:

[Psych] Social allergy effect

, by 雨夜 [アマヤ]

Now this is quite interesting. We all understand 'allergy' to be a reaction to some sort of food (eg. nuts) or environment (eg. dust, pollen) and that the reaction manifests on the physical body as rashes, itches and so on. Do you know that this word is also applied in social relationships?

The social allergy effect occurs when a person's annoying habits grow worse over time, instead of growing more fond of his or her idiosyncrasies. This can apply to both people and things (which might be why the more we listen to construction, the more annoyed we get). Or maybe why you get increasingly annoyed when anime character(s) you dislike keep popping out and result in less screen time for your bias.

[Music] Short People

, by 雨夜 [アマヤ]

Here's one of my favourite pieces by The King's Singers: Short People! A quick song to listen to in your study break. It's really quite the enjoyable song (if you can laugh at yourself being short), with the theatrics that the singers add into the song to make the song a visual performance too! Lyrics under the cut.

[Psych] Afraid to eat alone?

, by 雨夜 [アマヤ]

A paper I wrote for a psychology module in one of my semesters in NUS. I find that the topic was an interesting one to write for a paper. (: I hope that this can dispel some notions that psychology majors have to write long boring papers. (: And for those more concerned with academics, I got an A- for this paper, however I did edit out some parts of it to make it an easier read.
