I Ramble: 26 March 2017

In the name of Allah, the All-Compassionate, the All-Merciful.

So here we are and what have I accomplished for the past week? Only food poisoning. And now I have to get ready to get back to work tomorrow, which I am so totally mentally unprepared for.

But I’m going to face it like I always do, task by task. I have to stay on top of my discipline, whether I like it or not.

And well, I’m having a newfound sense of motivation to become more disciplined from an opportunity that has come up recently.

Le fiance and I met up with someone who is in the music industry yesterday and we got a lot of insights into it. Right now, things are in the balance but if he likes our compositions, he’d like to be our drummer. So we’ll see how things go. There have been people who replied to my post on SOFT but I’m not getting the band vibe from them. For jamming covers, yes, but I’m not sure if they’d dig multi-genre originals.

Regardless of whether he’d like to participate or not, I’m going to hone my skills. I need to improve my singing and brush up on my knowledge on music. At the same time, I should get back to my recorder, keyboard, guitar, and drumming. I think even though I can only play a little bit of each at the end of the day, it’d definitely help my musicality and musicianship.

I hope everyone has found motivation in March like I did. Let’s keep it going.

In the name of Allah, the All-Compassionate, the All-Merciful.

Well, I have been down with food poisoning since the midnight of 20/3. Gosh, it is a horrible experience that anyone who has had it, can testify to the level of discomfort and pain that ensues it. I constantly feel like I’m having motion sickness and it simply won’t go away.

Even the drugs did something weird to me last night. I felt so restless and there’s this bugging feeling beneath my skin. Like some sort of weird jitters.

Yuck.

I hope everyone else is in a better health condition than I am. Even le fiancé is sick. We gotta stay healthy, man. Let’s do it.

How do you fix your relationship with God? :/

Sometimes it feels like I don’t thank and remember Him enough.

How do you maintain your relationship with your fiance?

Sometimes it feels like I don’t tell and show him I love him enough. No, I’m not coming from a bad space. Just that I feel so, so blessed to have this man in my life. He truly loves me and cares for me and shows me that very well. But I? Hahaha! My name on his phone is Baeda Sayang but his name on my phone is still Amirudin. Get the picture? Hehe.

But then again, he knows that I have an unhealthy obsession with people’s names. I like to ensure that I know their full names and that I recognise them by their first names. Instead of putting ‘Mom’ and ‘Dad’ and ‘brother’ and ‘sister’ on my phone, I have them listed by their first names instead. And yeah, I know he is not affected by such petty things unlike other guys because he is weird like that. And I’m weird. So. 😀

One of these days I’m going to sneak in an emoji beside my name on his phone. Hehehe.

Do you know why I’m suddenly having all these thoughts?

He told me I remind him of Belldandy from Oh My Goddess! or Ah! My Goddess! and I feel like, eh, sure or not? So many people will be choking on their drinks when they hear that! Hehehe.

I personally feel like I’m a far cry from Belldandy but then by now, we both know that we see in each other what the other does not see in himself/herself.
