Futsuu..

Well, nothing special happened today.. I guess its just a conspiracy to make yesterday the weirdest day..

For starters, todays was kinda gloomy as i caught a flu... Can't be a cold as is was suuuuper hot yesterday (remember, no electricity!). I guess I got it because by immunity was kinda down due to the exhaustion (didn't sleep the hole night - remember, no electricity). Better start geting better - don't want a leaking nose during the exams worst thing to ever happen!

I went to pp & lp at church today.. I expected people to be shocked because its been such a long time since Joanna came but they were like "Hey! blah blah..." like normal as if I have been coming every week as usual.. We're all practicing for the Christmas Celebration service on the 24th (pj) and 25th (klang). We're going traditional again this year since for the previous years we have been giving them more modern and contemporary dances.

I'll be playing the angklung chords with Charity. First time for me to do chords. I thought of doing the ordinary chords our seniors used, Lynette and Sanam are using. Apparently we're using the GIGANTIC 2 LEVEL set. I decided I'll be going the lower level because I wanted to sit while playing but gave the excuse that I was more 'vertically challenged' so Chat would be more suitable for the higher level.

The set was still in Klang and they didn't transport it over yet so I was set to help our CONDUCTOR, conducting the main anglung team comprising of mostly the younger kids and some of the older ones..

Sonia (ms. conductor) was too soft in instructing the kids so I became the bossy bad guy and started becoming the 'substitute' and the PA system. I suppose those kids must be thinking "Who is this girl to just come in out of no where and start yelling at us? She's not even a regular". Haha..

But controlling them was hard, I kept telling them to hold the angklung in place even when it was not their turn and concentrate by always looking at the conductor BUT NOOO... They kept holding the insrument like they were holding a machine gun and there was one girl who had the attention span of like 0.01 seconds!!! She kept looking all over the place an missing her turns!! Geram wanna yell at her but she's still a small girl (but big enough to understand by SIMPLE English)

I'm worried that I won't be able to get the notes right in time.. I mean, looking at my friends doing their chords is really scaring me! So fast! Summore its been such a long time, I forgot how to read music notes!! And I have my exams!!! How leh? Oh well, when there is a will, there is a way!! Just that I don't know if my will is willing..
