I started a new job, which I love and enjoy. It’s in the field I’m very familiar with but the position is one that I am not an expertise in. However, I’m bettering my knowledge, adapting, and it’s exciting being part of a team to help something grow even bigger and better. The image above is very apt because I feel like I’ve found myself and am more than content with life.
Out with the Old in with the New
This year, has been particularly expensive one for me as all my devices decided to simultaneously give up on life. Not ideal but I’m not complaining because I do love investing in new technology so I was kind of like a kid in a sweet shop…though that wasn’t necessarily the case when shopping around for a new laptop.
Haven’t quite got the interdependency thing going yet, but that’s something I’m working towards this year. Not sure if I should rent or invest in a property but I will decide that after my holiday. I’ve had a look around and a lot of the places in the city are already under offer. The places to rent are a lot higher than I anticipated and I don’t want to rent a place when I’m going away for almost two weeks anyway.
I’m back in Hong Kong in a week, which I’m extremely excited about because I’ll be visiting with my siblings. Still figuring out whether we want to tour elsewhere in Asia but I’m guessing that’s going to be a spontaneous decision.

I’m out and about more frequently nowadays. Seems strange having a social life, being that I’ve spent most of my life being an introvert…still am but I do go out a little more. I’m not partying it up but I’m seeing and speaking to new and familiar faces.
My internship is going well, I think, and I’m enjoying my time at the company a lot! The job is all go, go, go but I love it, and get to look at beautiful jewellery on a daily basis and work within in great team.
The Friday before last I was told that I reached the finals of Zealous X – Design. Excited and over the moon with the news. I originally submitted two photos of pieces and a physical pieces but I’m going to see if I can one of the images turned into a physical piece of jewellery. I’m also trying to get another pendant, which I was honoured with a Highly Commended, made but this one is a little more complex than I first anticipated. However, this morning I think I’ve adjusted the piece in CAD to make it structurally sound.

…and I’m loving it.
Last Wednesday I started my internship and I’m enjoying it a lot. There is a variety of work to do and I’m not always in the same place. The activness of the role is something I really enjoy. It also doesn’t hurt that I get to look at beautiful jewellery everyday.
My colleagues and boss are extremely nice people too! There’s not an apt emoticon to describe my emotions right now.
