Impossible List

Last update: 28 April, 2018

I revised lots of verbose sentences and vague goals. Hope that, by doing so, I can increase my motivation to improve my general well-being and prevent myself from just being a sayer (for example, a vocal wannabe novel forever with no books published). Also, I read some articles that I wrote earlier. I feel like I improved a lot. Other achievements include: made some weird friends and published a few articles in the school newsletter. I just couldn’t think of another scenario better than what I have right now. — 28 April, 2018

I have a really bad habit of procrastinating (like many do) but I have lots of interests that I want to pursue before I’m sleeping in my wooden, colourful-flower-ornated coffin. Thus, I construct this list of my goals to (1) build a clearer picture of my objectives; and (2) pressure myself by showing all my aspirations, letting others criticise me at any time. — 30 April, 2017

Current Focuses:

1. Construct My Podcast Channel

The name will be TT group, with my primary-and-secondary school friend, Tommy, so Tyler and Tommy (TT).

Also, I made friend with another student in the same programme. He is super passionate about being DJ. He and I want to apply for an internship provided by RTHK, a government-funded radio station. I didn’t apply at the end because I couldn’t get the required documents. He applied but he still hasn’t heard from the station, so I assume he got rejected. I always have this idea to let him be the co-host in my (our) online radio channel. Just unsure if he’s also interested in this idea. (I probably ask him after editing this article.)

2. Write My First Book

Deciding what topic I will write: 1. A City of Two Cities (a fantasy Minecraft story to explore the idea of the Creator); 2. Simple Love Story; 3. School (a story about school’s politics to shadow the current political atmosphere in Hong Kong)

3. Improve my English

For whatever it takes.

Last Word

You surely want to create YOUR Impossible List. Check out Thomas Frank’s to have a look at his awesome List, for he was one who inspired me to construct my list and make my life productive, especially in the darkest time of my life, when I was completely lost and anxious while waiting for university offers (and finally I got accepted by EdUHK, the school that I’m in). Hope that change your life too!

None of your business
