Personal Timeline #25

  • +4 Ninja & Army Phase = The origin of my creativity

    One day a friend of mine randomly started calling me “lieutenant” and I played along with him. As the days went on I started to notice I've begun to find interest in books or shows and wished to be in it or create a world of my own.
  • +4 A Replica of the Bleach katana = Realizing my love for anime

    I’ve watched a lot of anime back in the days, especially Digimon and Bleach. My brothers and I were somehow allowed to buy some replicas of the Bleach katana from that series and it made me realize that, although sometimes weird, I enjoy those moments watching anime.
  • +4 Celebrating my 7th birthday at Jollibee = Recollecting my culture

    +4 Celebrating my 7th birthday at Jollibee = Recollecting my culture
    To this day I don’t know how to speak Tagalog and back then I didn’t attempt to try to learn more about my original culture until I went on vacation. It was a new world to me, I was introduced to the culture and the food.
  • +5 Drawing for my elementary school Christmas show = Putting myself out there

    +5 Drawing for my elementary school Christmas show = Putting myself out there
    Me being part of the celebration team in my elementary school made me suck it up and do speeches and such. Drawing for the Christmas show was my biggest accomplishment and felt like I achieved something in my life.
  • +3 Became a dragonfly magnet = Enjoying the life

    During a camping trip, as usual, I was alone to my own devices walking around, that’s when a couple of dragonflies landed near me. For some reason, I started questioning my life, before accepting the decisions I've made in the past as I now focus on the future.
  • +5 Found people to play (rip-off) DnD with = Stepping out of my comfort zone

    +5 Found people to play (rip-off) DnD with = Stepping out of my comfort zone
    One day while doing a specific assignment a deskmate of mine realized that I like DnD and asked if I would like to join them with friends. They were strangers to me but I took the chance and I’m glad I did because it was fun!
  • +2 Drew emotes for a Twitch streamer = A push to get better

    I’ve never seen my art as something to improve on, it was a hobby, not a career path I was looking to take. However, my brother’s friend who’s a Twitch streamer asked me to draw an emote for him. I wanted it to be good since it’s for someone’s real income. That’s when I started getting serious about my art.
  • +5 Finding Pekora on YouTube = A boost of confidence and reassurance

    +5 Finding Pekora on YouTube = A boost of confidence and reassurance
    Quarantine hasn’t been an issue but there was an impact that was made, both for me and my family. Going through Youtube one day I found a VTuber by the name of Pekora, out of curiosity I watched her. Personally, the best thing that happened to my life, my confidence and unexpected reassurance came out of it.
  • +5 Finding the game "Arknights" = A newfound love for joining a fandom

    +5 Finding the game "Arknights" =  A newfound love for joining a fandom
    There wasn’t anything to play or watch that was interesting, either it was overrated or not great in terms of plot and gameplay. Then I found Arknights. At first, I thought I’ll get bored of it and quickly leave as I did with the rest of the games/shows I’ve experienced. I was wrong but thankful for it.
  • +1 Working for a YouTuber = Being proactive and collaborative

    Slowly I’ve been breaking out of my shell, working on a multi-collaborative project for a YouTuber was a big leap I took. Most of us were inexperienced and I ended up being one of few in charge of the project. It was hard to find my flow but once I did I felt like I grew maturer and got used to working within a group and other people.
