Strange blues by JemiDoveJust you wait by JemiDoveThe reality vortex by JemiDoveMy current desktop wallpaper by JemiDoveMusic-inspired - The Lost One's Weeping ~ Tails by JemiDove[Sketch] Exam rages on by JemiDove

Am I the same Primary 6 girl who cried upon seeing her PSLE (Primary School Leaving Examination) results, knowing that she'd be doomed to spend the next four years in a potentially rowdy neighbourhood school rather than a prestigious, value-added one?
Am I the same 'emo' (quiet and serious) yet overly rightious and innocent Secondary 1 girl, being emotionally wounded by bullies and gangsters on her silent quest to score high enough to get into a better Secondary 2 class?
Am I the same choir girl who 'never smiles' despite countless scoldings and suffers under the whole pretentious act on stage?
Am I the same student whose heartrate increases due to fear with each step closer to school, every single day?
Am I the same Secondary 3 girl who got introduced to and hooked on the Sonic series at the wrong time, pulling her grades down during such a crucial year, making her efforts put into her Secondary 1 year in vain?
Will I ever be as hardworking and persevering as I was in Secondary 4, pulling my grades back up under the test of time for the final graduating exams?

I have finally graduated. With good results at that, too.
And I can genuinely smile and laugh happily without the constant image of my choir instructor scolding me in my mind or being on stage. :)

Onwards, to a new chapter of life.

deep description is deep. but unintentional hehe

P.S. Shoutout to :iconthepuccafan: and :iconmyhappymemories: , my friends I know IRL - while the former was a 'parasite' to me (my poor tissue paper and stationery ;~;  and doesn't listen to advice sometimes :XD: ) and the latter is quite a chatterbox (speaks as fast as a bulletrain, leaving me no chance to voice out my thoughts during some of our conversations :XD: ), I'd like to thank you two for inspiring me, even though I sometimes felt envious of both of your skills but never admitted it ;w;

This artwork took over 10 hours I think. Waughhh :faint:

You really have a gift for promotional art stylizing.
I'm glad you posted this. I know you've already mentioned the details in your journal, but "I can genuinely smile and laugh happily.." makes me a lot more content since you're now doing so well. Maybe I care too much. Shrug 
I must say, I really love how you drew yourself here. I think you're getting better at it with each go.

I appreciate your concern c:

Haha I guess I really am getting better, because I tend to draw myself too often when practising drawing humans :XD:

A gift for promotional art stylizing? Thanks for the compliment :hug: but you probably don't know how much I want to draw something less "promotional" XD Like artworks with more emotion, artworks which tell a story rather than just having a character float around in space (as I've said in Silver's speech bubble in my recent upload).

The above is one of my new year resolutions :P

Wow, such a detailed picture! Literally every paper or book here I can read the words clearly, not to mention how much nostalgia it is for me, I miss SYF! Such a nice pic to show your completion of sec school. ;) Have fun with Poly, but I'm betting you'll miss sec school life at the same time, I still am. :P

I think I'm using that same calculator in this pic.. :O

Drama Club, haha. Acting is one of my other passions, loads of stressful but fun memories. I really miss sec school, most enjoyable time there, you'll definitely miss it, well if you like your own sec school anyway.

Ah, so you can sing? Is it something you enjoy? :)

Hmmm I like singing as part of a group, but never on my own XD That's when I get scared whenever my instructor tests us one by one :P

Oh I know that feeling exactly! Really scary for me too, I would get tested with my speech and character by my instructor, only one in the room talking and if you mess up, oh that red face I always have. :P Although I would say these kind of things are good for your own skill. How was your SYF? Gold with honours? LOL, my drama never even achieved gold.

I see :O

Well before my cohort came into the picture (2011 SYF), my school's choir had been getting Silver every single SYF. My cohort was the first to get a Gold and break the flow :'D We got a 2nd Gold in 2013 too, the year I graduated~

Oh wow! Cool! I actually have a similar story, my drama club had been getting either Bronze or nothing at all straight up until my batch came in, we got Sliver for the first time in my school's history. La la la la Hehe, you must feel honored, as I am, to be able to achieve it together with your own batch. Like we were meant to be there or something. XD

I hope so too. :)

I feel that Secondary 3 is the most crucial year in secondary school...If you don't pay attention in class or practise regularly, your grades will plunge. I can say that from experience X_x

You seem really determined to leave Singapore, don't you? XD Ever since I've known you, you've been saying Austin things like that :XD:

I am determined to live Singapore... So many reasons... Idk but I find we Malays are getting more and more mistreated... Another thing is occupation and having a good pay. But most important thing I wanna get is "work life balance"... One of my uncle's live in NZ. I wanna be like him so yeah my parents are saving up for a Uni in Sydney and a house there as well. I hope I can join UNSW or University of Sydney or Murdoch in Perth. And since I also see myself as a vehicle designer, Australia has the widest opportunities for that. Australia says they will close down their car factories, but no to worry I can help and design cars for Holden. Australia also produce buses. Believe me, some buses you see in Singapore are made in Aussie. So yeah, Australia has more opportunities. Despite their citizens being racist (and they are racist to each other too. Sydney Siders hating Melbourne people. Gold Coast people hate Perth people) and aggressive I think they are friendly in nature and willing to work with you. :) I hope I can fulfill my dreams and move to Aussie. I also hope Singapore will merge with Malaysia. I know it sounds crazy but I believe Malaysia, can be a cool country one day! :D

I actually didn't want it to sound deep, but you know you can't help it when you're reflecting on the many ups and downs (more downs than ups actually) during your time at secondary school :iconderpplz:

Omai, you see me as a role model? :O *feels a sudden heavy pressure* jkjk

Most of the things you haven't learnt yet in this artwork will be taught in Secondary 3. That was the most stressful year to me. X_x

I'm planning to go to a poly to study Communication Design (a.k.a. Visual Communication). Didn't you read my journal? O.o

Glad you graduated so gloriously after your years at high school, Jemi, with the ability to feel proud of yourself. You seem to have done better at high school than I did, for sure.

The drawing definitely reflects that, seeing your avatar looking confident and ready to face the future. Really good details in the stationery and schoolwork, too - brings backs memories when I see those. And the Chinese text is pretty funny.

Again, congratulations on your graduation. I wish you the best for what you do next!

Yep, you could say that I do feel quite proud of myself for completing high school :nod:

There were many ups and downs....well, more downs than ups actually...but the fact that it ended on a high note is all it takes to keep me happy. :)

well if it can make you feel better most of us french are
pretty bad at french :V (I had 9 out of 20 on the written exam and 12 out of 20 on the oral one, not because I can't speak french, but because it's more
literature and such than french itself xDD)

Now… I haven't known you for an amazingly long amount of time (about a yearrr, maybe?), but from what I can tell based on this time I 've known you, here are my thoughts:

You draw like crazy, honestly. Your artwork is the most official-looking I have ever seen. And that's why I love your work. :3
And about you; you are a happy, humouristic, enthusiastic artist and a good friend of mine, who likes to talk with people a lot. C:
And that's why you're awesome!
And I know you'll stay awesome. :squee:
