时间不够用! In need of time!


刚刚完成了亲戚拜托的简单设计。
Just completed a series of simple designs my aunt requested.

有些时候看上去很简单的东西,制作过程却十分的讲究。不但需要资源,也需要精神集中、细心和耐心。
What seems simple and straightforward may turn out to be a grueling process that calls for extreme meticulous attention sometimes. Other than the right resources, it also calls for concentration, meticulous and patience.

创意嘛~ 由于不是大型制作所以不是特别的讲究。毕竟这次着重的是传达讯息而不是搞创意。
As of innovation... It isn't particularly important in this assignment because it's not a large-scale one. The focus of this project is to bring the message across, and not to showcase my creativity.

所以说,以上的图案(左)是网上用谷歌找到的。下载后,再用Photoshop稍微修改成右边的图案。最后的作品让我十分满意,但却不方便放上网,因此只有以上供对比。
So anyway, the picture on the top left is what I attained with Google search, and the one on the right is what I get after downloading the original and editing with Photoshop. I'm pretty proud of the final work but as I can't put it here, these two are used for comparison. 

最近的工作量大幅度增加了,上班时上班,下班后还是在为工作动脑筋。当然,还有家庭、生活和朋友。
The workload has increased significantly recently, and other than working hours, I'm also cracking my brain thinking about work during my free time. Of course, there's also family, life and friends that require my attention.

让我最担心的就是维持网页的能力…… 有时真的抽不出时间,即使有想法、有灵感,却没有充足的时间撰写,十分可惜。
The most pressing issue to me recently is my ability to maintain this website... To the point that I can't even pen my thoughts and inspirations due to the extreme lack of time. That's a real pity.

庆幸的是,工作环境让我复习英文,生活中还有许多事情让我继续修读华文,可谓难得的‘两全其美’。
However, I'm still extremely lucky to be in a working environment that helps me to get back on the English track, and have chances in life to continue improving my Chinese. It's truly the rare case of getting the best of both worlds.

所以就算累死,我也甘心。
I'd even die happy this way from exhaustion.

因为就如许多人所言,我已经很幸运了。
Because like what many people have told me, I'm already very lucky.
