It’s funny how we can never imagine how God actually created each and everyone of us so unique from each other. From our faces to the lines on our palm to the shape of our toes. Even twins and triplets are not exactly alike. But tonight, I noticed that even our voices, speaking or singing, are as equally unique.
I was dead tired when I got home from a whole day of teaching classes. I don’t want to do anything but to lie on my bed and listen to music. Turned on my playlist into shuffle and heard Hayley Williams’ (vocalist of Paramore) voice singing Zedd’s song. I realized that her voice is so distinct that I can’t compare her to any other singers.
After realizing that, made me think that no two voices are the same which is actually awesome. Can you name one artist that sounds exactly the same as another one? I bet none. That’s really cool. Even if we try to imitate them in karaokes… No way in hell that we would sound the same.
I know that this random thought is so light and simple but yeah, it made me smile and I’d love to share this to you guys. Lol.
Oh, this is one of the questions that I never want to answer but maybe I am. Am I?
I’m currently in this situation that I need to work harder as a musical director (at our music tutorial center) and do some other business which I can get money from. My dad isn’t working, my mom doesn’t have enough income and my sister is graduating. That leads to me providing for my family. Appently being the musical director and an instructor (violin, drums, guitar and ukulele) can’t pay all the bills since my dad had stroke. So I me and my guy bestfriend decided to do a business – a t-shirt business. Oh wait, there’s more. Me and my bandmate decided to make productions and produce gigs for local and foreign artists. So that’s a total of 3 things I need to work on. But under those 3 are branches of list that I need to finish.
As a musical director (I am actually acting as the overall director), I do the marketing, meetings to clients and business partners. I do the teaching – I make the curriculum, modules and lesson plans. I study, arrange and write the students need to play and usually this is for quartets, ensembles and ensembles. I also do the financing and computing of all the money in and out. And even the posters and flyers – I design and edit them. Oh, and I handle all the networking sites of the school. Yes, I am superwoman.
For the t-shirt business, I need to canvass a lot of stuff – from different wholesalers of shirts to machines. I need to study costing and make designs!!!
For the production – this is actually exciting!!! Hihi. I’m good with handling events. I think I’m that person who likes everything organized much more if I am the one in charge. So I have no problem with this but…. same as the t-shirt business, we still need to do canvass the perfect venues, talk to artists and technicians and all other stuff like that.
So where’s the procrastinating part? I know there’s a long to-do list on my paper but I slept the whole day. Scratch that. Not whole day. But I sang and played. I even started to make the music of my original composition (see previous post). Maybe I was really so tired for the past months since my dad got sick. I’m really longing for a break but then I still can’t because if I stop, no one can pay the bills. Or I know what I want to do, it’s I just can’t… for now.
