Back when I was in college I have this friend whom I made a genuine connection with. We were both creative, we spoke about different things, how we perceived things, how we wanted a different career other than becoming a Nurse, how we dissed about the girl on the middle of the 4th row, acting like she knows everything, Haha. And even after college, when we already had jobs, we still talked about pursuing our creative side. He even pushes me to enter a drawing competition for Shoe Designing, I just wasn't that confident that I'd be able to win so I didn't try. And even if we were not able to talk to each other after almost a year, we still had THAT connection... Art.

   This one really made me happy because one of us finally made his dream into a reality. My friend is now a contributor to an online magazine and I'm so proud of him for pushing himself in pursuing what he wants... and that is to become a WRITER.

     I loved his article because it talked about the importance of being able to talk to people, face-to-face, no gadgets, no distractions, just pure conversation about things that mattered. It's a RARITY to be able to sit in a coffee shop and talk without looking or even glancing at our phones, we've become attached to it, we're addicted to it. I once read a post on twitter from Uberfacts that "In 1000 years, our languages today will be extinct."  It's sad if you think about it, our language is so beautiful, I'd hate it if it would become extinct. We express ourselves through it, how our tongue flicks at every letter, the way we'd open our lips in each word. His article made me realize that we do need to save the art of conversation, to not depend on our phones if we want to talk to someone. We still need to interact with each other. The importance of touch, seeing and hearing one another when talking to each other. I'm sure everyone is in dire need of a deep conversation right now, the whole world needs it actually.

     As for my friend, this blog is for you. I'm really, really proud of you and I'm looking forward to reading more of your articles ^__^ Do click to read his article ^__^

Esquire Exchange: saving the art of conversation | by Michael Lacson

     I was asked by my co-worker to make a poster for her son. She's going to use as props while her son recites a poem about modern heroes. She showed me a video of her son's poem ^____^ he was so adorable! After watching I came up with an idea for my poster and as soon as I got home and bought the things I'm going to need, I went on and did what I do best... DRAW.PAINT.COLOR.

                                                                 And after 11 hours I was able to create these...
     I loved doing these posters. It made me want to draw again. Hopefully I could enroll myself to art classes so that I'd learn the techniques in painting. *fingers crossed*
