Love him or hate him, you’ve got to give the man credit. We’ll see how he holds up against Dawson the second time round. There will be controversy

Financial security

When I am older I hope I’m in a position where I’m financially secure and I don’t feel like I need to work to keep myself alive, and end up not living in the process.

Eventually I want to be in a position where I don’t need to work, and I’ll have enough cashflow through passive income to survive. 

That means I need to get into things like shares, investment properties and business and whatnot. 

Aside from being able to live comfortably and not having to worry about mortgages and bills and everything else my whole life, it’ll nice because I really want to help people. 

I don’t really like the idea of giving money, but I want to give my time and my services to people, especially in martial arts/boxing/muay thai. When I’m older I want to open up a gym and let marginilised kids train for free or really cheap. I want to be able to give people a second chance in life, and help them get back on their feet. I want to be able make people feel valued, especially if they’ve been told their whole lives that they’re worthless pieces of shit.

I’m only 16 and call me overly-ambitious or whatever but people don’t dream enough these days. People are too complacent and content with mediocrity. 

Lessons

It’s the end of another school term which has gone way too fast. I think I’ve been in half stuck in holiday mode this term and it’s going to show in my results but I’m not going to dwell on anything.

Today we handed in our body of work for Art, and I’m kind of disappointed in my work because I’m not where I want to be. To try and put it simply, I had a really really good idea but I only realised it about last week and I ended up making work that had a good concept, but not really resolved. Before that, I had an idea of what I was going to do but I wasn’t concrete, but I kept trying to push certain concepts in my head and try to make it work but it wouldn’t.

If I’ve learnt anything from the body of work, it’s to be open to new ideas, and not to force things if they won’t fit. It’s something I’ve realised many times but I just haven’t learned how to apply in certain situations. On my train rides I’m going to start meditating more and just count to a certain number and start over to practise self-awareness and concentration. Hopefully after a while I’ll have a calmer, emptier mind in everyday situations so I can be more aware of my actions.

I haven’t really applied myself as well as I could have this term, and I could make a whole list of excuses but when it comes down to it, I’ve just been lazy. I know I don’t really care about school and I really couldn’t care less what ATAR I get because I’m pretty sure of what I’m going to do when I’m older. Next term I’ll start applying myself better though, just because it’s better than being lazy in the long-term and I’ll save myself a little lecture from my parents.

Everyone says they’re going to do better next time, but I really think I will. I mean I didn’t set the bar too high anyway. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Umpisan

I’ve gotten rid of my Tumblr today. I know that I’ll probably be coming back eventually, but for now I will stick to WordPress. Tumblr is such a fast-paced blogging platform, it’s really easy to just create a page which is kind of like a collage of thoughts and whatnot.

I hope from WordPress,  I can express more thoroughly my thoughts and opinions. On Tumblr I’d just reblog a photo and leave it at that, but you can’t really do that here.

I probably should introduce myself, despite the fact I don’t expect really have an audience for this blog. Anyway, I am Tim and I’m a student from Sydney. I have an interest in menswear, irezumi (Japanese tattoo) and martial arts.
