Musical Stuff

Oops! Over 3 weeks since my very first post….I have excuses, though: mocks, mocks, mocks…

I would say sorry, but since there isn’t really anyone to say sorry to, I think I’ll just move on.

I really do use ellipses too often, don’t I?

Anyways, recently I’ve been listening to a lot of Korean music, because it’s just so catchy and the music videos are so cute! Some groups I’ve listened to include Wondergirls , 2ne1, Girls Revolution and Kara. I especially like Nobody, I don’t care, Lollipop (here I mean the one by 2ne1 and Bigbang, not one of the millions of other songs called lollipop, though some of them are nice too:)) Gee, and Honey.

I have also started listening to bubblegum pop pieces, which I never thought I’d like, but it’s actually pretty fun to listen to (Doctor Jones and Tarzan and Jane, anyone?). I’m not sure if Jenny Rom fits into this category, but I think she probably does…anyways, I love Senorita and Game of Love! They are perfect dance music, as well as background music for AMVs. Does anyone else think that her music is quite Japanese-like even though she is Italian? You can easily imagine an idoru dance based on the music. Maybe it’s just me.

While I’m going on about musical stuff, I just have to mention that I got a distinction for my singing exam! All the world rejoice! Okay, maybe I’ll just rejoice on my own…I really thought I wasn’t going to get a distinction, especially considering what I did with my last song. I just stopped before the last verse, all happy, thinking I had finished. It was only when my teacher gave me an alarmed look that I realized I still had one more verse to go! Well, then she improvised a bit and then I joined her playing again to sing the last verse. I was so embarrassed! Plus, I really messed up the whole memory thing they have on ABRSM aurals. Oh well, I guess it was just my charming personality, not to mention my shining *cough* modesty that gained me the marks. d: I really hope the smileys aren’t putting anyone off. Well, at least I’m using correct grammar (I think), so that should not be such a big problem :).

Hmm..I don’t really have anything more to write, so I’ll just end it here 🙂 This turned out to be a pretty music-centered post, so maybe I’ll write about something else next time (hopefully sooner than after 3 weeks).

Ta 4 Now!

[insert witty title]

Hello my nonexistent readers! (since this is only my first post, I can assume that, can’t I?)

As you can see, inventing titles is not one of my strong points, so don’t expect anything too witty…Actually, I don’t have anything really interesting to say, but I felt somehow that it was my duty to write something, if for no other reason, then just to get something else than “Hello World!” here. (What are we, programmers?) ‘Nyways…I’ll just say random stuff about myself. Since this is my first post, I won’t bother thinking if I’m boring or not. Here goes:

  1. I’m a girl
  2. I’m from Finland
  3. I’m living in S’pore
  4. If you have read the “About” stuff, you will know this already
  5. I love, love, love music
  6. I play the viola
  7. I sing
  8. I love reading
  9. I play the piano
  10. I…will not tell my age, but I am still in school, just if anyone’s curious
  11. I love chocolate
  12. I should really be doing my sci writeup now…so unfortunately this list ends here.

Ta 4 Now!
