I think I have found my balance. Or.. at least I am trying to discover it.
This summer, I have been through many ups and down. And I really learn something from it.
At first, I thought that with eliminated time, it wasn’t hard to get a A in a class. However, this theory was wrong, I realized that “time” can be a friend or an enemy. I realize that during the first part of my summer, I had too much time on my hand, so I use those time to play games and study. But eventually, I got addicted to games.
So, “too much time” = can be a bad thing. So, I had to do something with my time. Thus, I started reading books, going to the gyms, setting academic goals for myself. And lastly.. I would like to take up a hobby.
I want to learn piano again. Its a skill I want to keep throughout life, and play myself a nice song on those days that I feel like listening to music.
And also, I want to try video animation again. I always like animation as a little kid. It was a useful skill that I had picked up after quitting maplestory a few years back. Surprisingly, learning how to edit video has gotten me to many places I never realized I would ended up. Even though, video editing has nothing to do with medicine. It has gotten me a leadership position in high school, and then that leadership position provided me the opportunity to joining the UCI premed summer program. And before I know it, I became invovled in the healthy communities and had met many doctors and gained many mentors. All that through …video editing? haha It really do takes me places.
So, to balance out my summer time, and using it productively. I wanted to pick up these skills again. I feel that I owe myself something to do on my free time that I can enjoy. Gaming is no longer an option for me, so I trying to find an alternative. Healthy Living is about balance. And just as I learn to manage to balance my meal, and (hopefully) my weight, I need to start to learn how to balance my life. So, I can be happy and still do the things I love. (studying, spending time with parents & friends, and enjoy the events that comes my way :] )
I’m gonna make a new page to keep a track record of my video animation release. Check it out if you got time
