I am back! So so sorry for being inactive for like 2 weeks. There was so much to do these past weeks such as projects and requirements, and exams. Also, a lot happened so here’s a recap!
– I just realized that I haven’t listen to any songs other than musicals for like 3 or 4 months. Insane, right? Well, blame the musicals because musicals are so amazing! I recommend each and everyone of you to listen to one and get immersed. You won’t regret it. Speaking of musicals, I am obsessed with Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 and I am so sad because the show’s last performance will be on September 3. It was a really really great musical. Even though it’s ending, everyone can still support so please do. Listen the album on Spotify (there’s one for the Original Cast and Original Broadway Cast) or watch it if you can afford it.
– Last last week, there was a lot of projects and requirements to be done and most of them was to be submitted on August 11, which is just crazy. All those days, I was thinking “August 11 will be the death of me”. There was a letter to our president about unemployment, a video of a flash mob we did in my school, a brochure about anti-alcoholism and anti-smoking and a reaction and reflection paper in our Christian Formation. These were all hard to do.
– The following week was exam week. It’s our first periodical exam and boy oh boy was it a pain in the butt. There were a lot of things to be memorized and studied such as Iliad and Oddysey, biomes and how DNA are made, and herbal medicines. This was a lot you guys. Though, I think I did really good, both at reviewing and having the exam. Here’s hoping to have good scores! (I wrote this 14 days ago and continuing this. I already got my test and the results are good, I din’t fail or had any low scores. Some were really really high so I’m happy.
– I joined a speech choir competition and we’ve already competed. Spoiler alert: we won! Anyways, the practice were really really hard and tiring. Everything needs to be perfect from the actions, the way we speak and pronounce the word and our facial expressions. Our teacher (which is my classmate by the way. She’s really great) is strict yet kind (she always shout “TOP!”). Jump to the day of the competition, we were stressed and nervous. My voice is a little cracked. Then, it was our time to perform. My legs were shaking and being on stage is nerve-racking. a lot of people is watching you and you may commit one mistake. You may say the wrong word and disrupt the whole performance. It was intense. After the performance, after getting down, we were so happy because we knew we did our best and it was almost perfect ( just little flaws. No one noticed them except from us ). Jump to the announcement of winner, we were nervous but then our principal (it’s a school competition) had us shocked (or shookt) when she offers the trophy immediately before the announcement of the champion. Talk about spoiler alert. Anyways, we still didn’t expect because everyone was good and then it was announced the we won and I wasn’t listening. My co-members were already jumping out of excitement and I was just standing there but then I realized that we won and oh my god, it was the best feeling ever.
Anyways, hope you enjoyed this post. I’ll be back for more. Goodbye!
