Day 11 — A photo of you taken recently
SEPTEMBER 12, 2009. Trying-hard-to-play-the-drums ME!
so like, when you say “photo of you taken recently”, i took it as “photo of you taken 8 months ago.” hahaha whaaaat? :p so yes. this is another snapshot of me during my 18th bday. this was my intermission *slash* Cherry’s Got Talent portion. HAHA i played Taylor Swift’s Love Story. and i kind of messed up. im sure someone noticed it. haha well, my original plan was to learn the guitar and sing and play The Calling’s Wherever You Will Go. well, i learned it but not so good. and a day before my big day, i’ve decided to just stop being a hypocrite (because im no guitar-player, really HAHA) and be true to myself. yes, that’s where the “drummer” part comes in, though i’m not good. really. well i fcked it up a bit because i only made up my mind the day before my debut so i had no time to practice. fortunately, my guests loved it (well, they should! they’re my guests after all. HAHA)
this was sorta dream-come-true for me. one item in my checklist is: To play in a major rock concert/lotsa people. CHECK! :)
K, i feel like telling this story. i was a Senior in high school (just so you know, i’m an incoming Senior in college, so yeah that was almost 4 yrs ago) when one of my classmates asked me if i know how to play the drums because they are planning to form a band. and i said i don’t know how but i’ve always dreamed of learning and playing it. so she said she knew someone who can help me and i took the opportunity. we formed a band (an all-girl band!) and we had jamming sessions after class. it was fun. one of my most-fun days ever, i can say. but you know, college happened and the three of them went to the same school and i was alone in my university. so yeah, we kinda ended it. but now, i wish we didn’t. and that’s the story of how i became a trying-hard drummer.
PS. reasons why i love to play drums:
- it isn’t that common in girls to know how to play drums. not even boys.
- it is a really really good stress-reliever. you know the feeling when you wanna hit those people giving you bad vibes? well, you hit the cymbals and the drums and you let your feelings out. bow!
- i used to play the piano but i got bored playing it.
- i just love it and i think it’s kinda cool.
