Hi I’m Lik, and I started this blog (back in the summer of 2013) to serve as a place for my creative expression. This is also what I want to return back to now.
Somewhere along the educational path my attention switched from living a life rich in experiences to studying and excelling at it above everything. Maybe it is because the responsibility for organizing my time slowly shifted from my parents to myself. I would guess so. As a natural side effect of being a teenager, I fought for my right to define my life… only to discover that I’m not very good at it. Before, my main responsibility was to find the way to enjoy whatever was happening. But the priority slowly was becoming to actually decide what was happening. And somewhere along the way the joy had been almost forgotten.
Throughout the high school and university the studies were taking all the time and energy, leaving very little for socializing or developing creative side of me. However, at the transition to my Master studies, the classroom time dropped significantly, allowing me to try and do something new. I joined a theater group in my first year, and in the second year I joined a dance studio and also found a teacher to develop my guitar skills. I liked it very, very much…
Fast forward to the present moment, and I’m still not very good at defining my life and proactively creating it (although there have been some brighter periods – look at the archives), I am still studying (though neither having a clear direction, nor excelling at it), and I still have a very special feeling for creative activities.
So, from this restart of the blog, I would like to start again on the path of learning to making something out of my life. Something that will bring me joy. Something that is meaningful to me. I would like to motivate myself for creating and, step by step learn to share my work with the world, as well as gradually increasing the quality of it, bringning it closer to the vision I have. What I really would like to achieve is to find (or define) my place in the world. My way of living, where I would appreciate all the aspects of my everyday life.
In the essence, I would like to go the path to find my own happiness.
