When you try so hard…

I thought I was done. But it was the moment that everything started, again (Honestly, more like *It was at this moment, that John knew, he messed up*). While I was putting the frames that I drew using GIMP, into the animation software “Synfig Studio,” the plugin “GIMP to Synfig” failed to work correctly. As cautious as I am, I read through all the possible forums and documentations on that error code to solve it; I had no luck. I found one very vague and underutilized solution though, but writing and modifying your OWN scripts for GIMP in Python? I wouldn’t risk all the data on my entire laptop just for experimenting with a system file. So I sat down on my chair, wondering about nothing more. Just like that, for half an hour.

It’s all about the curves 😉


As my free trial of Photoshop expired right after the last project, I switched to gimp. That is not at all, a reasonable excuse to stop creating another email and signing up for another trial; I encountered the “FOSS” philosophy, also known as “Free and open source software,” at a linux forum. It did not so sound convincing to switch over to gimp, but the fact still remains that there are people out there, developing ‘FOSS’ everyday for the good of everyone.

A Summer of Learning

Staying home for the whole summer, I thought that I would be doing nothing, but wasting time on games and anime. I wouldn’t say this was an unproductive summer, since I did extensive research on colleges and universities (I can literally counsel someone about their future). I also learned to get windows 10 for free (legally) on any computer and with a little more tinkering, I also learned how to activate it (legally).

I also started to realize what I was interested in, thus directly leading to the answers for the questions: Where am I going after I finish school? What major (s) do I choose? What profession do I pursue in the future?

I Will, I Do, and I Am. Relaxing.

I used to have many more classmates, more teachers, and larger classrooms. Thalun International School is tiny compared to my former school, Yangon Academy. I am very thankful to my former school for teaching me a life lesson; bigger doesn’t always mean, better. Hahaha. I’m laughing at my old introverted self, lol. HAHAHAHA.

Everyone changes. So do I.
