My Love Affair with Design.

In the late half of 2011, I threw myself into thinking of what I would really love to do with my life, particularly the job that I would really love to do and make me say 'I really love my job, I'm no longer gonna have to work a day in my life!' brouhaha. The process brought back a ghost from the past - the frustration of not taking a degree in Architecture. When I was a kid, my mom used to watch me draw our own house and she told me how good I was. She noted that I was very detailed on my illustration. But our finances went rough, so I had to take a college course that would save me from starving. Right now my day job in an IT firm stays true to one of its premises. I guess the ghost came back after I lied to my coworker that I got over it and pronounced that I have nothing to lose. Nah, this is a serious matter of the heart.

Another Fresh Start.

For many months now, I've been really itching to get back to blogging.  I had a blog that ran as Jasper On The Loose from 2010 to the middle of 2011.  Unfortunately, I got plagued with the depression of being unable to post anything.  However, I realized I was wrong to think that I had nothing to post when in fact so many things have happened on those down times. It was bad for me to even forget that the important part of blogging is to express myself.

And hallelujah! I finally pulled all the might (yes, you might have just read that on the About Me section of the blog but I'm speaking of this force in general) to bring back myself to expressing a lot of things - my interest, musings, what-not.  So Jas Saying, which I played with the common phrase by replacing 'just', is intended to be a collection of my thoughts, everyday life, and interests, particularly on interior and furniture concepts, illustrations and anything that takes on art.  This is one channel, that I really hope, will help me push myself further to make my dream come true.  Lately, I've been exposed to many things that inspire me.  As I begin to form this blog, I will be taking those inspirations on the posts that I will be making.  For now, this is just a start.
