Malaise?

10 Apr

Lately, I revisited a recurrent thought. About how the system contorted me.

We were taught to go by the books. We were told if you don’t get into x school or y college, your life will be less than perfect. We were told that if you don’t go down z path, you will have no future. Really?

As long as you get satisfaction out of what you’re doing, I guess everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, then it’s not the end. I shall save you from the gloom talk – here’s something light-hearted.

A few opening words: I’m such a sell-out. No, I don’t actually think i’m thaaat awesome, invincible or legendary. This clip was tailored for something that needed me to be though.

First time doing video editing so pardon my amateurishness (A note on misrepresentation: Recycled a series of images I did previously of my dear friend Oli – lazy to recreate one with my face ha ha)

/edit I forgot all about this since I didn’t hear from them. But waow 06.05.2011 is a great day – they want to meet me next week. I’m surprised, happy… and I’d better start thinking of what to say.
