My first concert couldn’t have been better! It was a magical, wonderful, dreamy, beautiful night. Lenka is…perfect. She made it hers with little bits of craft, creativity all around. It pretty much felt like stepping inside her beautifully unknown world of colour. The lights were gorgeous, vocals fantastic, songs uplifting and touching in blissfully real words, I could go on forever! She told stories with her dancing and music, that’s what it felt like, stories. I love her, I love her as an artist and a person, in awe at how she uses what the world has, different mediums and sounds in a beautiful blend of song. Why did it have to end why WHY
Thank you so much to my dearest LPFL Deon for getting me the most amazing tickets in the hopes of the best first concert experience, you are also amazing! hehe ;*
My brain isn’t cooperating in finishing my essay, so I’m….passing time.
I’d love this so much, but I am frustratingly a language idiot.
For a society that hates being labeled on letting loose with some alcohol, it irks me to no end when I am judged for not drinking. I don’t like alcohol the way some don’t like spinach, so what? It doesn’t make me a prude, or a child, or no fun. I’d drink a celebratory birthday shot for the person I’m celebrating, but the rest is up to me, like how choosing to drink is up to you. Respect it both ways.
I am grateful, I love, I treasure. These two, I will never have enough to describe in words.
I had a really good day today!
Met Josepg after what feels like ages, laughed a lot, talked a lot. As usual I trudged behind as he shopped, me talking loudly about his future child’s poverty if he kept spending on shirts. We had a funny moment where I thought this other guy was him so I just stood there waiting with my phone out and he suddenly appeared to drag me away, wondering why I was just standing there for that long. It was hilarious.
Oh and he said this
Me (at some decorations) ‘How is pink in any way Christmassy?’
Josepg ‘Maybe because it’s an off-red.’
Josepg ‘WHAT I’m trying to justify..it!’
I still can’t decide whether or not he made sense.
Then I had school which was really interesting, and after Amanda and I (unsuccessfully) searched Tiong Bahru plaza for some eclairs. Oh but it was our last lesson with our tutor Danny, that was sad. He was good. It is sad.
Now it’s 4am and I shall sleep. Here’s to the rest of the week being good too! I pray.
I was rude to Ari just now when she messed up my room/was jumping on my rocking horse because she was awful to me this morning in her very regular ways. I’m so sick of it. She is rude and horrible to specifically me, and although I feel guilty I am no less sick and disgusted by her behaviour. Also she (rudely) consistently messes up my room. Ugh, how is she even this way? I pretended to violently whack her head in a vicious arm-swing while she was playing the computer, baaaaaaaaaah it is testament to my improved temper control that I resisted making contact.
I try to drink in every bit of Christmas spirit I can find in this country, though its getting increasingly difficult to harvest anything genuine from the abundance of commercial intentions. Nothing irks me like ‘HITACHI’ glaring underneath every set of Christmas lights.
Studying is great when information is smoothly understood. As an added bonus too, now that I’ve been practicing, my handwriting significantly easier to read! Now to actually understand the questions I have to answer…..
