Design Classes Here I Come

I did something for myself today. Something which I probably should have done long ago but had all sorts of ready excuses. Something which makes me feel excited.

Which means I can tick off one item from my list (ok, I know I can strike it off officially only after I've completed the course). It's a part-time certification course in an arts school in Singapore-- Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA). I've long heard of the school but never stepped foot in it. I've always responded with envy when friends or acquaintances spoke about being a student of the school. Envy because a part of me has always leaned towards fine arts. But throughout my academic years, never did I get to receive any training in it (this subject calls for a longer blog post). Today, as I navigated the school grounds, heading towards the registration office,  I had glimpses of the full-time (and hence younger) students and a feel of the school. I liked the vibes, the expressiveness. 

I? I felt like I can belong (despite the school fees having burnt a hole in my pocket). 

Classes start in end June. Wish me luck.


  1. Hey Sandy. I found your blog through Blogging Your Way, and I really like it. It's good to do something good for yourself. The course will probably change your life. When I started to study a subject I had dreamed of doing for a while, it really changed my life, and I'm so glad I did it back then. I shared some blog link love today in Sparkling Ink, and wanted to tip my readers about your lovely blog. See you soon!

  2. YAY sandy! You go girl! SO happy for you!! I also did something over the weekend...i found a craft shop that offers sewing workshops! SO i signed up for quilting classes! So excited for the both of us! Have a lovely merry happy day!!
