Well, this was kind of unexpected.
Usually when I decide to embark of a new vocal cover, it’s something that’s been on my reminders list for quite some time, queuing up for my vocals to shred the beautiful song up. For some reason I just felt that I wanted to start on this ASAP. It surprisingly took me a few days to complete, even though it’s only a little over a minute and has a lot less layers than other songs (read: Sprinter cover).
Not my best, but, I put in a lot of effort into attempting the harmonies and the editing.
Please please please feel free to leave critiques on this attempt (as well as many others). While I’m just uploading this out of pure leisure, I would very much love to also improve at area where I’m terrible at.
After a 3000-word social research paper done, it’s as if some rubber band inside of me has just snapped. I keep having these impromptu karaoke sessions with myself around the house.
Since I’m taking this time to relax before going back to mug for exams happening next week, I did a quick cover that has been on my to-do list for since August.
Because it’s short, the whole recording plus editing took way less than an hour. Also maybe because I had looped this song infinitely on my playlist ever since it was released on Aimer’s new album. So much FSN/UBW feels.
願い の 破片, よ 永遠へ!
everybody please have more vitamin yes and say no to going out unnecessarily k
WHAT SORCERY IS THIS.
Ever since starting school again and planning out my study schedule and deadlines, I’ve come to the conclusion that my year 3 in polytechnic, albeit not the easiest, was honestly put in place to prepare me for university. My current schedule somewhat resembles my schedule in January 2015, when I was barely scraping by with psychology essays and SPSS, except this time it lasts throughout September to November. It’s also during period like this when I cherish any moment I can to get away from school ASAP (on school days) to spend solitude at home.
This is also the time when I start feeling grateful to God for placing me in a polytechnic, rather than a JC. Though a few relatives had initially put the idea of going for A’levels through my mind, I’m glad that I stuck to knowing my own abilities and capabilities in a learning environment- learning application over academic knowledge. Afterall, I still managed to get into a university despite the lower percentage of poly students continuing education as compared to the others.
Probably one of my fastest covers. I did the main lines yesterday, and all the other parts this morning within 2 hours. Kinda had an idea in mind of how I wanted to sing it already because the lyrics ARE JUST OH SO BEAUTIFUL AND HEART-WRENCHING.
On another note, I did this cover on my new macbook air ie. without access to adobe software. After growing so reliant on photoshop and premiere pro I felt so handicapped even when I was trying to find a software to create a simple thumbnail and struggling with iMovie… ):
I may or may not have mentioned it previously, but in polytechnic I was quite involved in a CCA called Campus Crusade for Christ. When I finished my final polytechnic exams this February, I decided to continue immersing myself into that campus ministry by signing a contract to be a project staff. It’s the same people and almost same procedures, except this time round I’m looking at everything from a different angle. It took some time to adjust, but I soon settled down with the travelling between home, school and the office and staff-level planning.
Having just ended my 3.5 months contract yesterday night, I woke up this morning feeling very much ‘unfresh’ (also because I didn’t wash up before crashing) with just a teeny bit of sadness. It’s feels slightly weird because I thought the very prospect of starting school again and still being in a God-loving community in their university campus ministry would overwrite all sorts of longing to look back. I’m starting to think that maybe, just maybe, I’m just giving off humans’ natural repelling towards change, if something like this even exists.
Either way, I’m thankful that I got the chance to see a unique ministry’s runnings from a management’s point-of-view. Considering full-time ministry now? Probably. Full-time campus ministry? Not so much for now, surprisingly. I’d still like to consider joining other forms of ministry work first.
IN OTHER NEWS:
I’ve graduated from poly! *confetti* It’s news that’s 2 months late, but better than no news! I’m actually starting university next week with only 1 day of class and 3 days of orientation camp in a foreign land. Sounds classy, but I actually mean Pulau Ubin. So.
While taking a break from a writing assignment that I have, my mind drifted back to a cover I did some time back but probably never posted here. Because I bought a new mic, I wanted to try it out by recovering a song I’ve done before. Also because I adore this song to bits so much (but not really the fact that it requires so many layering of vocals ): ), I set my mind to NOT DELAY its completion beyond a month. As a result, I completed it in less than a week! *confetti* well, dillay-dallying aside, please enjoy it!
“Wait, what writing assignment?”
… *makes mental note to update my wandering-around for the past few months soon*
