What I tell myself everyday.

To all the people watching, I can never ever thank you enough for the kindness to me, I'll think about it for the rest of my life. All I ask is one thing, and this is.. I'm asking this particularily of young people that watch: Please do not be cynical. I hate cynicism - for the record it's my least favorite quality, it doesn't lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen. I'm telling you, amazing things will happen." - Conan 'O'Brien

conversation w a student 1

 Hey
hilscreate says:
 sup

zs★ says:
 I ask you ah
 Are employers very discerning about like
 hiring people who have proper training
 like people who have proper design and art training
 as compared to software monkeys who can churn stuff out?
 I`m thinking, would a company pay, say 2.5k or 3k to hire a uni grad in animation[like me, if I graduate], compared to a software monkey who learned how to animate
 and can do all sorts of tricks, and is only asking like 2k?
hilscreate says:
 u say leh ?




zs★ says:
 That`s why I ask you what, I don`t know
hilscreate says:
 u think that software monkey will take 2k if he can get higher ?
 and
 u think that the software monkey dunno about design or art training ?

zs★ says:
 Hmm
hilscreate says:
 ya
 u asked the wrong question

zs★ says:
 Then what should be the question?
hilscreate says:
 the question is really simple
 how good can you be

zs★ says:
 Hmm
hilscreate says:
 right ?

zs★ says:
 You`re right
 it`s a very daunting question
hilscreate says:
 it is
 and the answer is ?

zs★ says:
 Not very good.
 HAHAHAHA
 You`re right, it`s a question I try to avoid all the time
 it`s so easy to get stuck in a rut and lose sight of the entire industry on a global level and just compare yourself on a local level or school level
hilscreate says:
 :)
 and u got to look at a global level
 the answer is actually as good as you can be
 then the question will be how to get there

zs★ says:
 Yeah
 It`s so easy to get sidetracked in school
 I see you post on your blog
 like the quality of students a bit chui leh
 got students walk out of masterclasses
hilscreate says:
 haha
 welcome to my world
 can I put this msn on the blog ?

zs★ says:
 Sure
