This song, though COMPLETELY unrelated to my country, or myself… I feel as if it helps me remember my old times.
With my buddies and stuff. Ah the good times. The past is such a beautiful painting…
Oh my gosh emo mode. But yeah, I’m in that phase. The phase where I just reminisce… as my friends slowly part ways with me for NS.
Recently I took a break from music and stuff.
It felt so cluttered.
So painful that I’m not as good as I hoped to be.
Then one day I listened to a keyboardist and pianist named Jordan Rudess.
It struck me that even the most technical of players still have a place for simplicity in their playing.
I know I keep forgetting about this. But haiz, we go through phases I guess.
SO I took a week off. Everything… training, practising, doing japanese hw (until the last day before mehehe, but I still aced dictation anyway ~~ =D)
And I came back a few days back after listening to Jordan Rudess.
Then I realized the meaning of all the things I decided to do.
It’s because I wanted to show off. That hey I could do this and that.
But what these things meant to my life were more than just that.
They make me who I am. A music-loving, crazy stupid otaku, health conscious man.
And I live to see them through. To be the best man I can be =).
It’s no competition. It’s about being true to myself. Being the best I can be.
So that’s the lesson I wanted to bring to you guys today. =D
Will update when I feel like I got more content about my life haha.
