Sunday Stickies is a column where we reflect on the past week and pen those thoughts down on sticky pads. Expect notes to ourselves and others, advice, reminders for the week ahead, quotes, and anything random actually.
Our schedules in July and August are fully packed with art markets, datelines and more datelines. It never rains but pours right? However, this is definitely a happy problem and we kinda like dancing in the rain. In this week's Sunday Stickies, we may come across as grumpy old ladies going on and on about busy schedules and the severe lack of time-off and sleep but don't take us too seriously. We honestly like the heavy workload. It is assuring to know that we get to be busy and we have big projects to sustain us.
New work opportunities and projects mean growth for the company and a chance to explore new ventures for our studio. We had many meetings this week but the meeting in the air took our breaths away and we became giggly puffs instantly. We probably lost all forms of professionalism for about 10 minutes but life is too short to be always serious, right? Plus, we got ourselves a new Hello Kitty labeller for some studio work because life is also too short to have boring office tools!
Min: What do you do when you are in a long and boring meeting? I often find myself dreaming of ice cream and wishing that the meeting will wrap up quickly so that I can finally indulge in some decent food. A part of me understands the importance of meetings and discussions but the other part feels that too many meetings are a complete waste of time. Sometimes, I wish most people will come prepared for a meeting, and by prepared, I want to have constructive conversations and a solid plan to move things forward. It can be extremely frustrating when the parties meet without any prior planning and time is wasted sitting around, looking important. #grumbles
Jia: How important is your hair to you? That was the question on my mind for the past few days. My brother is a long-term supporter of the Children’s Cancer Foundation and has taken part in a few Hair For Hope events. Every time I watch my brother and the numerous participants shave their heads to raise money to aid the kids and families impacted by cancer, I am always filled with admiration and respect. My hair is my ultimate comfort blanket and as much as I want to support CCF and its events through active participation, the only thing I can really do is to donate to the cause! Perhaps, one day if I can raise $50,000?
Are you ready for August? :)
With Love, Min+Jia.
