Drawing Challenge

2 months ago, for day 267 by Asia

My daily art challenge is still going strong. I'm pretty proud of myself. There were definitely some nights where I felt like I just didn't have it in me, but I have pushed through on every occasion. One time I even went out with friends and did a drawing right...


Slack Attack

3 months ago, for day 252 by Asia

When I joined my first Slack community in 2015 as a newly minted employee at a postgraduate ed-tech company, I quickly became a huge fan of the app. I loved being able to chat, laugh, and emote with colleagues in real time. It felt more real and intimate than email,...


Artsy

3 months ago, for day 247 by Asia

I have a lot of hobbies, and it's hard to make time for all of them, but so far, I've managed to do it. The core hobbies that have followed me for most of my life include: reading writing gaming drawing coding designing I've...


September

3 months ago, for day 245 by Asia

Here we are on the second day of September, and I'm still in disbelief at how quickly the summer went by. The highlight of the summer was easily my trip to Tanzania in June. I still haven't been able to bring myself to post photos. I guess I got overwhelmed...


Doodle Bug

3 months ago, for day 243 by Asia

It's been a while since I picked up a pencil to draw. I was doing some small drawings in a sketchbook for a little while, but there was something very dissatisfying about being confined to such a small canvas. It's funny, when I started drawing, one of my favorite teachers...


Moments and Monsters

3 months ago, for day 238 by Asia

Today I received a postcard from myself. It was written a year ago at a creative conference known as XOXO, in Portland. The card read: Dear Future Me, If you want rainbows, you simply must have the rain. Don't let moments and monsters steal your joy. ...


Self-Honesty

4 months ago, for day 218 by Asia

Sometimes the hardest person to be honest with is yourself. It's kind of odd, isn't it? You are the one person who always has your own best interests in mind, and yet, it's so easy to inadvertently fall into self-destructive behaviors, often without even realizing it. Counter-intuitively, some of our...


Bonding

4 months ago, for day 214 by Asia

Tonight on a whim, a colleague invited me and a few others to dinner. He and a few other team members were in town for a meeting and wanted to enjoy the town. They decided on ramen, and even though I'd been just the night before, I decided to go....


Retail Therapy

4 months ago, for day 210 by Asia

Tonight I spent a lot of money at Target. It's not all that much in the grand scheme of things, but it feels like a grand sum for someone like me. I typically live well beneath my means and save pretty aggressively. Well, except when it comes to food. That's...


Perspective

4 months ago, for day 206 by Asia

I have always struggled to create things and imagine in 3D spaces. Clay throwing was incredibly frustrating, and adding perspective to my drawings felt like too much of a time suck. Like a crack of sunlight through the trees, the moments of insight that come through between the fits of...
