k anyway, i figured that i shouldnt be spamming the poor tagboard, so i decided to post instead wheee
right. today's 7th July, YOUTHDAY, 11 MORE DAYS TO CONCERT *OMG GASPS HYPERVENTILATES*
HEY chill guys (right. chill me -.-)! im sure we all can do it!!!! like i mentioned in my tag, we are near! we just have to work hard for another 11days and we will be there on stage performing for 900+ people! and subsequently causing the whole hall roof to collapse xD
and while concert is SOOOO near, we cannot allow ourselves to slack! take some time to evaluate yourself, like where else can be improved [like for me i must lian and revise until i wont blank out during taiyanga and bali ><] , and improve on it before the day comes! if there is still anything that you are not sure about [i hope not...] please approach the respective instructor/conductor ASAP or you can ask someone from the section, i guess.
incidentally, it comes to this point -- how to make our practices more effective.
note: things that im going to mention below applies to everyone, even myself.
i admit that im sucker when i dont pay attention /: i feel that i think we all can reduce our digressing further [it has improved yaye!]. and then pay attention to ET, QQ, Pearly, Lin lao, Mrs Ee, Seniors, yourself, others around you. meaning that, pay attention to instructions (e.g. when you are asked to move, move!)，and please give everyone your fullest patience and effort! ><
and! as the date draws near, i totally expect mood swings to become common. but still, i hope that no one would throw tantrums at anyone, so as to ensure that everyone can be happy (and high) during practices! when someone really explodes, there are two ways you can approach it, one is to calm her down, two is to ignore her, and three, well you dont want to know what it is. in any case, choose the right thing to do with regard to the circumstance (:
but of course, this has to go both ways. while people try not to agitate anyone, we should try to control our temper and bear with any intentional/unintentional comments.
we must all try our best not to speak rudely to anyone. while practices are tough, basic courtesy should still be observed (:
[refering to above] and that is also why i think that patience is important, whether its patience to yourself or to the section or to the instructor/conductor. yep!
please please please take ultra good care of yourself and dont fall ill!! anyone missing would mean a part missing for the concert. so take care!!
oh. a few more things to take care of. your gu chui. qinzhu, tuner. and your scores. and every single part of your body. k that sounds sort of wrong but you get what i mean -.-
and can i request that people lets all tune yangqins with spirit and faith and enthusiasm. hahah! and keep the yangqin clean! if not you can ask sec 2s for tips on how to make your yangqin look sparkling clean. HAHA xD
lastly, this is going to sound stupid, but in the midst of pia-ing for concert, please pia for blocks too! its hard, i know, but tryyy!!!
