Finally got a chance to watch this movie. The story feels a bit deep and I don't think younger kids can really appreciate the messages it's trying to convey, but nevertheless I still cried like a baby towards the end.
Had to think long and hard for this comic, solely because of the events that have happened recently, and particularly in Paris last Friday. But as most people have pointed out already, it's really not just Paris that we're praying for, it is also all the others who have suffered and all the things we believe in. So I couldn't just do a comic for Paris only. This is a dedication to the world.
We'll stay strong.
Also special thanks to: Suwandy, for his encouragement & support. ^^
With the big four banks in Australia increasing interest rates, is the Australian property craze finally cooling down?
From what I can see, there are more properties on the market and fewer of them are up for auction. Some of them are actually selling for decent prices and there are fewer people at inspections too. Maybe I can finally afford something soon!
I'm quite glad that more awareness is raised for mental health issues these days - they can be serious, but hard to detect. People who have them don't necessarily talk about it. When they do, sometimes they might be seeking advice from people who think they're helping, but are actually making them feel worse.
Mental Health Week is all about understanding mental health and ensuring people are seeking the right help from the right places.
This is how I feel some days. I'm sure many people can relate.
On another note, why is this bunny still working in a paper-based world? Um...I have no idea. I guess I just wanted to have paper flying about as a special effect.
Bunnies are quite simple-minded like that. :)
Ever since I started working I've been committed to putting in the hard yards and doing long hours.
But that has also resulted in my health going down the drain.
These days, I'm just getting too old to be doing long hours anymore. And is it really worth it in the end? Well, if I got to choose all over again, I think my health would matter to me more. It may be a bit late, but I still want to change.
There's only a certain extent of the corporate ladder that I would want to get to. Once I get there though, I just want to stay at that level forever. I'd really hate to do the stuff that those director-level people do and I'd also hate to deal with the people they have to deal with.
Note: this is just an imaginary scenario. Every real estate agent I've met has always acted professionally (much to my dismay for one particular eye candy that I couldn't stop seeing, lol).
P.S. I talked a little about depression and anxiety in my last post and received a few sincere, kind and supportive messages from very dear friends. I'd just like to say a huge thanks to you all and that I feel so much better through your words of encouragement and knowing that I'm not alone.
Actually this is one of the comics I drew during a state of depression. Depression and anxiety are a couple of those ongoing battles I have with myself. Dealing with it takes time and patience (or maybe I am a little too patient...lol). Though, it's really not that bad nor serious. Perhaps it's just a part of growing.
Hope people aren't too shocked to hear this, but mtbunnies is actually created from a "glass half empty" kind of soul that really just wants to see the world as half full.
So many natural disasters lately, Nepal taking the biggest hit. Hope all our readers are safe and sound!
In other news, a friendly reminder that it's Free Comic Book Day this Saturday, 2nd of May! Check out your local bookstore to see if they have any events on. :) Most of them usually have free comics, cosplays and discounts.
(Marvel fans may notice the quote in the title of this comic. ^^
It's from the S.H.I.E.L.D comic series by David Hickman and Dustin Weaver.)
I used to have a set criteria list for my ideal property. But as the hunting goes on, you'll find it's almost impossible to match both your budget and criteria together.
(Unless you already have millions to spend and your only criteria was "penthouse in the middle of the CBD with sea views"...)
So I notice I'm making a lot of sacrifices and watching the budget closely. Which is kind of sad, because house hunting is pretty serious stuff - you expect to live there for a long time, and with a mortgage, it's a long-term commitment! :(
Recently I've been watching Sailor Moon Crystal, which is a remake of the Sailor Moon anime, but the story is more closely aligned to the manga.
Surprisingly, I still enjoyed this series despite being a lot older now. I guess that's why it's such a classic.
(Honestly though, the amount of time it takes for them to transform...I really wonder why the bad guys actually hang around for that long. My only explanation is that the transformation is just as mesmerizing to them as it is to me! :P)
When I stepped out of my cave and into society, it was super awkward to experience having someone kiss the air next to my cheek... I mean, it's not a simple hello and it's not a proper kiss either...so what is it??
Despite my cultural confusion, I did manage to get used to this. But still find it an awkward thing to do...and in most cases, I don't even know whether I should do it or not. (You know, those moments when you lean in but then the other person doesn't seem to be expecting it).
I actually recall the above conversation with a guy friend back at uni...though I doubt he remembers discussing this. :P
The way we view the world has changed so rapidly over the years. I now see kids looking down (at their iPads and phones) more than looking up (to see the trees and the horizon). Plus, there are so many people with posture problems now, more than ever before.
Technology is great, but sometimes you just need to get out there and see the world for real too. :)
