365 Days: I Got Skills

Published January 22, 2014 by adventuresandthoughtbubbles

You know what I’d really do willingly if I could? I would dance. Thing is, I can’t. If other people have two left feet, I’d probably have four.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I’m completely incapable of following choreography. It’s just that I get lost easily because all the steps look the same to me in a way. I can move, yes, I’m not stiff. But choreo is what makes a routine look good, and I just can’t follow for some reason. If I were to be the one to make the choreo, I would probably do okay, right? Wrong -_- still nothing.

We have this dance troupe in my school. They’re amazing. They’re synchronized, and the steps are just brilliant. I catch myself actually doing some of their steps sometimes. I do it once, twice, then I lose track of which comes first. It’s irritating…

Another thing I’d actually love to learn is draw. I make things out of scratch. But for some reason, I just can’t draw. It always looks the same. And I can never seem to make something original when I draw, since I would need something to base it off of.

You know those pictures online? The pictures of girls drawn in pencil. They seem so wistful in a way. YEAH. I really wanna draw something like those. The kind that looked cross with reality and anime. I really wanna learn how to draw! I just find people who can draw so amazing. Like, how do they even create such a beautiful thing with just pencil.

I guess I better start practicing

365 Days: Quote Me

I know the quote sounds bitter, but don’t look at it that way. Look at it the Nic way.

I don’t see the quote like it says wake up, face reality, your dream ain’t coming true. The way I see it, the quote is telling you to make your dream a reality.

It’s telling you to get off your butt, stop planning and just go for your dream.

Personally, I hate it when people say “Oh, I can’t do it because [insert lame reason here]”

I honestly think they’re just scared and making excuses so they don’t have to do what scares them: taking that one chance that could make their dreams come true. Because that’s what people are instinctively scared of. The future and what happens after you take that one chance.

I’ll tell you this, there are 2 choices if you take that chance and you go wrong.

1. Get up, dust off, find out where you went wrong and try again. Or,

2. Stop your life with that one mistake.

If you don’t do it though, wouldn’t it just kill you inside? All the ‘what ifs’. All the regret that you didn’t take that chance when it was right in front of you. All the time you’ll spend (day)dreaming about that moment that could have happened. If only you took that chance. That will be the thought that will haunt you for the rest of your life if you didn’t take the chance.

So please, take that chance. If it goes right, good for you. If it goes wrong, follow #1 🙂

365 Days: Kick It

Published January 3, 2014 by adventuresandthoughtbubbles

Everyone has a bucket list. A bucket list is sort of like New Year’s Resolutions, but for your whole life. It’s what you want to achieve in life; people you want to meet, places you want to go, things you want to do.

My bucket list has 20 items so far:

1. Climb a wall like Spiderman

2. Hug a cloud [don’t judge me]

3. Walk outside on my own [I’m not allowed to walk. Again, overprotective parents]

4. Get an orange ID [this allows me to get out of school on my own without a fetcher]

5. Redesign my room

6. Give out all plushies [I just can’t, but I have toL]

7. ITS PRIVATE, SORRY

8. ITS PRIVATE TOO!

9. Get in and out of Bermuda Triangle

10. Become more of an optimist

11. Sing alone onstage in front of an audience of 100+

I know I said there were 20 things so far on my bucket list but I’m gonna stop here,  you guys don’t need to know the rest. ‘Cause today’s post is about… [insert drumroll here]

#11! Yay! –FIREWORKS-

I REALLY REALLY WANNA SING ONSTAGE. I’ve loved singing since forever. I sang my first song when I was around 2 years old. It was Filipino and it was called ‘Kung Ako Na Lang Sana’ which translated to ‘Wish It Was Me’ It tells the story of a girl who loves this guy, and the guy has a girlfriend and isn’t happy but won’t break up. The girl in the song is the best friend of the guy and she confesses her love via the song. It’s a beautiful song and I still love it.

I guess I love singing so much because I grew up in an environment with a lot of music. And it kinda came naturally to me, it just happens. But I never performed for real till about, 3 years ago.

In 5th or 6th grade, I just had the urge to audition for the glee club, and oh my god I passed. The glee club covered choir in masses and concerts for events. So for the first concert, we rehearsed for around 3 months.  Stage rehearsals came, the entrances and exits, the costumes, the lights, the dressing rooms. I just fell in love. I knew I was meant to be onstage. I loved the adrenaline rush when I got to sing with the rest of my club mates. The fact that they were there with me really lessened the stage fright. The applause you got after was just amazing. I was addicted to it.

So here I am, looking for another chance to just be onstage. Problem is, my parents won’t let me join anything that will let me sing. It’s a sad thing. But one day, I will cross that item off my list.
