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.
