So much has changed since I last came here. Come to think of it, my last post was back in 2011. Glad to see many of the friends I made here are still designing and keeping up with what they love doing.
I remember registering for a DA account back when I was still living in Japan. Think I was only 16 turning 17 back then. Didn't know much about the internet, design, or programming. Was so new to the whole online world. Back then I was using friendster instead of Facebook, MSN instead of Skype, hotmail instead of gmail. I was just a student back then looking to earn some extra pocket money doing what I loved - designing websites. Before I knew it, I was earning close to 5 figures a month selling templates and webdesigns. For a 17 year old, that was a heck of a lot of money! Though I never started for the money, I did it for passion. The money came in later.
Close to a decade has passed now. I've ventured into some of the wildest walks of life. Did what any grown man should and would be doing - exploring the working world, venturing into various businesses and opportunities. Boring stuff. Coming back here made me reminisce the past, reminding me of what I loved doing back then. I'm 27 this year.
