Boring Life

February 4, 2017 at 12:59 AM

Life has been boring. Really shitty and boring and the first month of 2017 is already over and I’m still back at square one. My life has been worse than the previous 2 months. Nothing, I repeat, NOTHING has been going right. My January 2017 has been filled with utter devastation when I lost 4 kittens and 1 went missing, thanks to my mom for letting them out without supervision.

I don’t want to talk about that.

And guess what? My Samsung S7 edge phone fell and the screen cracked. I have never cracked my phone’s screen in my entire life. I feel like hanging myself every time I see the crack when I use the phone. It will cost RM 1k – RM 1.5k to fix. FML.

The only thing that’s keeping me somewhat numb to emotions right now is my herbal medicine (St. John’s Wort) and my iMac that has been keeping me occupied with catching up on my blogging stuff. I did, however, receive a good news a few days ago when my short story was chosen for publication. It was totally unexpected considering I wrote it at the last minute (a day before the deadline). Two of my short stories were also published last year (finally) by the same publisher. All of them are sci-fi stories. Maybe I should take an interest in sci-fi.

I’ve been wondering what to do with my life. Last month, as I was walking at the mall with my friend, there was this music school demo at AEON mall Klebang. They were promoting their new music school/classes in Tambun, Ipoh.

I was really interested. I’ve always wanted to learn how to play the guitar or the drums. Not like I could join a band or anything like that because I’m too old for that now but it’s fun to have something to do and learning something new at the same time. I wanted to learn guitar too. There’s guitar center here that sell guitars, but I don’t think I’ve heard guitar lessons here, like official music school classes. Piano, yes.

Believe it or not, I kind of miss playing the piano. Years of learning it when I was young (since I was 8 years old until 12 years old) went to waste. If I wasn’t so traumatized by my bitch of a piano teacher who screamed at me then kicked me out of the room just because I couldn’t get the notes right, I would’ve continued mastering the piano. Excuse me for being a fucking tone deaf-kid.

I really regret that. I regret that she was the ONLY teacher in Ipoh at that time. I wanted to transfer somewhere else and she was there too. Wtf. I decided to quit. Thanks a lot bitch for ruining piano lessons for me.

Anyways. I wish I could join this school but I couldn’t afford the classes, unfortunately. The economy right now is depressing. The amount I’m earning every month is depressing. The debts I’m in is depressing times two.

I wish I could go back to when I was young and knock some senses into my head when I said I couldn’t wait to be an adult. The adult world sucks big time.

By the way, I forgot what song they played for the acoustic guitar demo, but for the piano he played ‘Frozen’ song and for the drums ’24 Karat’ song by Bruno Mars.

James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke with Bruno Mars & Sia

December 18, 2016 at 2:25 AM

OMG this is hilarious.

These past few days I’ve been addicted to Bruno Mars’s new song ‘24K Magic‘ and couldn’t stop singing it. It’s stuck in my head. And I’ve been depressed over a few things this week which I will write about soon but watching this video just gets me smiling. It’s hilarious.

It makes me wanna karaoke right now but I have nobody to go with. So what do I do? I just karaoke alone, at home, in my room using my phone and the app SMULE. It’s actually a good app if you love singing karaoke. My microphone sucks though because the one that comes with the phone (S7 Edge) doesn’t sound as good as those with iPhones. But of course, if yours sucks too, you could always look for microphones for singing online.

Another one of my fave is Sia. Gosh, I’ve been addicted to her songs and Maddie Ziegler, the girl who dances in her videos and also from Dance Moms. She’s amazing and her dance moves are captivating. I could never take my eyes off her every time she dances. Sia is also an amazing singer and I love her raspy voice when she hits the high notes.

She also did the carpool karaoke with James Corden.

It’s videos like these that make me forget my depression for a little while.

Ernie Ball?

January 31, 2016 at 12:24 PM

I know I haven’t posted in ages! But I will make a separate post about that. Right now, I just wanna talk about guitars (another separate post is coming). Don’t ask me why I like talking about it. I guess somehow this blog could also be useful to those who are interested in guitars? I’m not a pro or anything. I don’t know crap about guitars so when I learn some new things, I get excited.

So, today I learn about a new brand for guitar strings? Called ernie ball? And Nickel?

Here’s what the description says about Nickel from Ernie Ball?

Nickels are some of the most popular of the Ernie Ball Slinky guitar strings. The 2223 Nickel Super Slinky is crafted from nickel-plated, steel wire wrapped around a hex-shaped, steel core wire. The plain strings are made of specially tempered, tin-plated high carbon steel, producing a well-balanced tone for your guitar.

All Ernie Ball strings are precision manufactured to the highest standards and the most exacting specs to assure consistency, optimum performance, and long life.

Ernie Ball is a pioneer of rock and roll guitar strings. Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Steve Vai, and Slash are among the long list of Slinky players

Wow, Jimmy Page? Eric Clapton? Slash? So they use this slinky strings?

That’s an interesting thing to learn today.

The Lip Sync Battle

September 20, 2015 at 5:29 PM

Who doesn’t love lip-synching to their favorite songs? I know I do.

First I thought I wanted to share the impressive impressions Ariana Grande did on Jimmy Fallon’s show that I found hilarious. But then I checked out a lip sync battle between him and Ellen DeGeneres but it wasn’t as epic as I thought it would be. Quite sad though since it could’ve been better. I mean… it’s ELLEN.

Then I saw this one by Tom Cruise, now this one is epic!

Seriously, Tom is over 50 and he’s still looking hot, damn.
The part when they said ‘it’s not fair’, I was clueless when they meant. Duhr, it’s Tom’s infamous scene where he dances in his undie. I’ve seen it the ‘entrance’ part, but I haven’t seen the full scene. Haven’t seen the movie either. Now it makes me wanna see it.

Here’s the infamous ‘Old Time Rock ‘N’ Roll’ dance scene from the movie ‘Risky Business’.

LOL.

Note:

If you’re looking for musical instruments, head over to musicians friend home page and purchase one.

PS: My apologies for the lack of updates in this blog, or any of my blogs. I’ve just been blergh.

Drawer Slides

July 27, 2015 at 12:59 AM

This year’s Raya has been very boring. All I’ve been doing are sleep, some writing and a little bit of reading. I’ve finally finished Fifty Shades of Grey which I started months ago but the book is poorly written I couldn’t finish it. Heh. I’ve also bought like almost 70 books this month at Big Bad Wolf book sale. I realized I went a little bit too far but really, you can’t help but pick up all the interesting books because they’re so cheap! I’ll write a review of  it at my other blog soon – Totally-Awesome.net

So anyways, just a quick one. If you’re looking for drawer slides, OVIS is having some sale for 60″ drawer slides. It’s not something I’d normally blog about and not something I know a lot about but yeah just thought I’d mention it here. Speaking of drawers, I’m reminded of my old IKEA drawer that I used to have in my PJ place where I kept my DVDs in there. I wish I didn’t sell it and brought it back here so I could keep all my DVDs in there. Urgh.

It’s past midnight right now, woke up an hour ago and couldn’t go back to sleep. I think I’ll watch some movies at Netflix now or continue writing.
