Essays, essays, essays. That's all I have to say. And some rumours. My god people get a life and don't waste my time. It seems I'm a thief today but this song is bombastic! Lekka prospects are expecting me, I'm gonna stay in the UK over Christmas holidays and planning to meet awesomest friends in December. oooooooh excited!  But for now, let's enjoy this song at full volume.I need it.

Today was pretty much awesome as much as demanding! Performance after performance, great feedback, good feeling! 

maybe we sometimes need to feel we’re part of something bigger than ourselves

Competition is a form of separation. First, when you have thoughts of competition, it is coming from a lack mentality, as you are saying there is a limited supply. You are saying there is not enough for everybody, so we have to compete and fight to get things. As you compete you will attract many people, circumstances, and events to compete against you in every single aspect of your life. For your own well-being, you have to get competition out of your mind and become a creative mind. Focus only on your dreams, your visions and being the best that you can be!

“Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.”
Carl Jung

"The Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's needs, but not every man's greed."  - Mahatma Gandhi

I'm gonna perform this song tomorrow plus Love Story plus Iron Maiden the Wicker Man which I'm gonna be assessed on. I've just posted this as my status. My day so far,  nine till ten thirty Artist Development, ten thirty till one two band rehearsals, back to Bimm, one thirty till three Pre Production, three till five band rehearsal with my third band, buying black jeans for the gig, drinking Rum to smoothen my voice, heading home, having something to eat for the first time, practising. Later on sleeping, getting up at five thirty, taking a shower, talking one hour on Skype with my friend Anna to awaken my voice, warming up, getting ready, off to the boat in the river, auditions at nine, ten and eleven o'clock, back to Uni, Styles and Techniques then Advanced Musicianship, finishing at 6pm. And all that on strong antibiotics. That's the true Rock'n'Roll my dear.

Mother Teresa

On tuesday I'll be auditioned and assessed at Thekla. The boat if you remember. The crazy thing is, it's in the morning at 9 o'clock and at 10 and at 11am with three different bands. Oh dear, I need to get up before six to get my hoarse voice ready. Wow and I really thought, I will have loads of time between my performances. The other thing is, I'm at my third week on antibiotics and the side effects are fairly wearing me out. Whatever.  
Well today is super grey. And the fact it's getting dark in the early afternoon, has been always depressing me. It feels like the end of the day when it isn't. This song is a good song. f o r. n o w.

I'm dreaming about everything that no one thought to wonder!

Literally running from one band rehearsal to the next, I'm playing in 3 bands so far. Don't even know the bandnames haha, head's a mess. And all because of the auditions and assessments taking place next week. Due to my illness and all the intense singing, my voice is really suffering which sucks. Well no option but to be in peak form next week ey! I wanna see only Distinctions please. 
Sweet practice just now. Looking forward to perform. Have a nice evening.

To be in this pic now in a moment forever, oh what I'd do for it!  

this is so cool, I want it as a T-Shirt

Today I had a masterclass with Lou Rhodes. Fascinating and interesting woman. Again pretty inspiring. One of the greatest songs by her band Lamb is Angel Gabriel. Masterclasses are awesome! 
On Tuesday our Vocal course's been in a Studio recording Beach Boys 'Good Vibrations' and Les Miserables 'One more day'. It was really nice. I could do stuff like that constantly.

Pretty memories of a splendid weekend

I was in a pretty bad state the entire week, did my audition for Live and Lyrical on friday with the lovely help with some fellow students, I'm on the 'maybe' list, fingers crossed! Spent friday till sunday outside of Bristol City of what I didn't think it was a good idea in the first place but it did me good, very relaxed, felt so at ease and I'd been well served by loads of hot milk with honey at my own request, cereals with yoghurt and peanut butter with jam, apparently I'm a weirdo haha or maybe just imaginative.   
Anyway I'm in such a better mood now, I literally feel the up.

To be purely honest, I feel like I've already lost sight of the shore which turns out to be a good thing then hey?

This song is so true at the moment. 1 week on antibotics. If this isn't going to help, I really don't know.

Some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity-  Gilda Radner

Masterclass with The Dillinger Escape Plan at Bimm today. They were telling us their experiences as succesful musicians. Fairly instructive and inspiring. Those blokes are more than alright! They are actually pretty damn cool. I got to know this band through this song some years ago.
