An interview with myself


I can’t believed that It was almost 5 years since I started out this blog. Never mind about the fact that the blog has never go viral, partially due to my insecurity on how people see me if they truly know who I am. I didn’t dared to publicize the blog fearing that if the number of people visiting my blog grew, I would have to be more carefully about how I wrote it. But the blog certainly grow with me, looking back what I used to thought was matured turned out to be immature. It was pretty amuse sometimes when I looked back what I wrote. Today I decided to re-look into what I wrote 5 years ago. Promise me not to laugh.

Movies, starbuck, music, games, books, TV. Basically what a normal teenager will do.

Nah. I just broke up with my gf of three and a half years not long ago.

Sorry to heard that. Any plans of getting attach soon?
Not really. I am not so desperate. Furthermore I still haven’t really got over her. I think it will be rather unfair for my new gf if I get in so soon. Meanwhile I guess I should really enjoy the freedom of being single and concentrating on becoming the 5th billionaire in Singapore.

Yeah. My room has tons of books, magazines, and post cards.

My pc with 19inc monitor, my lousy camera, pen, pencil and paper.

So What are your plans for next year?
Probably set up my own company doing projects related to designs. Labels, websites, prints, Magazine, etc. Get a car licenses maybe.

If given $1million what will you do?
Probably spend ½ million travelling and the next starting up a business.

Where do you want to go?
Big cities, small towns. Anywhere! Maybe other than tekong.

Current moment June 6 2011

I wrote this when I was at the worse period of my life. I was emotionally unstable and actually felt that the world was the end. I had a break up with my then girlfriend. I was full of pride and refused to let anyone see the venerable side of me thus resulted in me showing the cool side of me. It can be clearly seen from the way I answered those questions. At the time I inspire to be a graphic designer and wanted to set up a company that publish my own magazine. I was very influenced by design magazines and modeled the blog after it. Thus there were interview questions posts like this. In the interview, you can clearly see my innocent dreams and vision, that aspect I can said that I haven’t change and in fact my dreams go wilder and bigger. Why not let me ask myself the same question again and see if I will answer it any different and take a look again 5years from now. That will be interesting!
