    I’m spending my last day of unemployment listening to Stefanie Sun’s music… Just fall in love with one of her songs, Windbreaker. Those triplets in the chorus are really nice hooks. :smile: 

    I went for songwriting lesson earlier (after nearly a month break because my teacher is too busy with endless musicals, concerts and his first album release). I was tasked to pick a song to practise and I have chosen 3 of them. Actually, I only picked 2 songs but thought maybe I can try out Stefanie Sun’s new song to practise at the last moment.

    These are the songs that I picked. Hehe.

    In the end, my teacher picked the last song – Stefanie Sun’s A Dancing Van Gogh. It’s a tough song to analyse with lots of modulations and stuff. But it will be an interesting material to study in the next few weeks…

    It’s back to work tomorrow and oh my gosh, I think I am having holiday withdrawal syndrome now. I will miss my last Week of Rest break. I have been having Week of Rest since 2013. That’s like 5 times so far. No more Week of Rest break in my new company. Oh well…

    Anyway, I should be sleeping soon. I have been sleeping at 3am for the past 1 week and obviously I can’t do that anymore since I have to wake up by 7am for work tomorrow. Boo hoo hoo. :cry: Welcome Sakura back to her working life.

    I discovered the a really nice music while I was shopping at Kinokuniya a few days back. Found a nice cover for it and thought of sharing it here. :smile: Enjoy!

    I have been really busy with school (and work, of course) recently that I am neglecting my music and perhaps, photography aspect of life. Guess blogging from my laptop has taken a backseat as well. Speaking of which, I am thinking of getting a mechanical keyboard for personal use… I guess it makes typing feels more shiok? Haha. But first I need a proper mouse since the batteries in my Microsoft Arc Mouse is leaking and I can’t use it anymore… :cry: 

    I have also started my investment journey and is making paper loss. Well, I guess it is all about long term investment? Hopefully I am going to see paper gain soon… 

    It didn’t help much when USD is depreciating too. Sigh. It has been on a steady decline ever since someone has become the President. Oh well. 

    Joanna Dong went to take part in the Sing! China competition and her second performance for the competition is really awesome! Just watch it below.

    Okay, back to school work now.

    I was doing my school project and reading up on the resources on OWASP site and listening music on Youtube (with my Beoplay A2 playing the music so it sounds really good) and I came across my favourite IU music again. Hehe. :smile: 

    I blogged about the same music here too!

    The old music video I posted in my previous blog post here is not working so I decided to update the blog entry with the updated video that I found.

    I was surfing Youtube earlier and found this video which I find it quite inspiring. It’s about the perks of being single life.

    Some pros of being single pointed out in the video:

    1. Save money! Whoa, totally. But I think I am quite a spender though. Hahaha.
    2. No need to consider about the significant other. More YOLO-ness, maybe? :smile: 
    3. More time for yourself to learn new stuff?
    4. Friendships get infinitely better – know who are the friends that can last longer.

    I particularly liked this quote from Wes in the video too.

    “Investing in yourself when you are single is going to pay when you get into a relationship” – Wes

    Anyway, the video is embedded below so watch it if you are free? :grin: 

    Oh, it’s great to have a 15inch laptop (such as MacBook Pro) cause I get to put the Chrome on my left side of the screen to blog while watching Youtube. Hehe. Glad that I listened to Nicholas’ recommendation to get a 15inch MBP instead of the 13inch MBP. It’s really good for school stuff too.
