really like my job, bosses and colleagues.. they’re a LOVELY bunch.
and i’ve still not sorted out my internship :/
heap of readings to do this sem, and i’ve been busy working on school and making little things to build up a stock before i sell..
sorry! i know i keep promising pictures but i’ve been sooo busy.
and in other news, it’s 6 months away but HELLO CNY!

argh, i’ve done it again.. procrastinated blogging!
so i’ve been sorting my ideas for school projects, looking up open calls and exhibitions, and sorting my ideas for a collective.. I’ve garnered some of my classmates and seniors to put together ideas and things to sell, and been going out to have a look at the markets and i’m really quite excited! lots more needs to be done, and there are not enough hours in a day… or at least in an australian work day :p
by the time i’m done with school for the day, the shops are all starting to close! ah, such is the culture, perhaps it is a good thing that i should try to compromise to.
so we’re thinking of a collective name… any suggestions?

today was a good day, had a good morning at work, great class this morning and super inspired for my new jewellery line, and just need to work on my wax pieces..
did some ceramics work but not as much as i wish i could have.. just got to the point at around 5pm that i just needed to go home, unwind, and do some spanish as well.
i’m not behind in studies, but there is a tremendous self-pressure to find a good job in addition to being my own arts slave master.
didn’t sleep very well last night, waking up every hour from the one that i slept at, but am determined not to let my anxiety affect me.. it will be okay, i will be okay.
here’s to the starving artist in all of us :)

So I’ve been working at my aquarium job for the past 2 1/2 weeks, and I don’t have enough hours yet.. so I’m still applying to new places. Meanwhile, I’d love to hear some feedback! I’ve recently learnt how to make 925 sterling silver rings and would like to sell them on the website.
Each piece is a one of a kind as it is made from the lost wax casting technique (see here), will be priced between SGD $45 – $ 70 or AUD $50 – $80. All prices include regular postage.
Also planning to do ceramic earrings, rings, and pendants, so please be patient!

i told myself to be more disciplined with blogging, but i’ve gone almost a month without updating… things have been that busy :)
i’ve settled in nicely at home and at school, and i’ve started making work already… been out looking for jobs, but so far only cheated feelings. i know something will come by soon, but i can’t help feeling a bit antsy about things. i’m also going to start throwing some cups to restart savethestarvingartist here!
in other news, my mum and aunty arrive tomorrow for 2 weeks!! can’t wait to see them, been looking at photos lately and missing especially the littlest baby fat fat. sending squishy hugs your way, little one!!
it feels like i belong here, and i feel right at home. not odd out, not strange, just fitted right in with this crowd of misfits :)
just a short one, and i’m off to the studio. no classes today, but i’m going in to make work :)
hasta luego amigas!

Hello from Melbourne!
So i’ve arrived, and things are good so far..
having a little trouble with booking my modules and finding the admin staff to help me!
but everyone’s been really friendly, and i’ve met up with some of my old friends.. as i speak, i’m being a parasite at StudentPC which belongs to a lovely lovely old friend :)
Cheers, and updates soon!
