I enjoyed a pretty free day today.
Now most of you would argue that I actually am free everyday since I’ve got so little to do. I’m not going to school, I don’t have a job, I am not practicing any specific hobbies or sports regularly.
But my mind is rarely free.
I don’t know why but I’ve always been a worrier.
It’s my nature. I worry about a thousand and one things that wouldn’t even bother a child.
But today was freeing.
I don’t know why.
I woke up feeling refreshed. And this happens rarely. Usually when I wake up it’s after a whole hour of tossing and turning and then finally deciding to drag my ass off the bed after which I’m tired for like the whole day.
But today I woke up feeling good. Maybe because I kind of got up early.
Also, I managed to teach myself a completely new song on the piano today. And yes, I play the piano but not very well. I’ve never officially taken lessons. I’ve instead picked up a few lessons off the internet and my sister’s old piano lesson books. I mean I can’t read music notations. But I know my way around a piano.
The song is ‘Newsong’ by Tacica. It’s a japanese song that was feature in Naruto Shippuden as a opening theme. I love the song and you should too.
It’s the first time I managed to learn a new song in just one day so I feel good.
I also started watching a new anime but to remove the potential for addiction, I chose one that’s only 12 episodes. I’ll finish it soon and write up my thoughts later. I can just say, It’s amazing.
I also spent quite a lot of time talking to myself out in the balcony today. So maybe not all is good. But don’t worry. I am firmly in control of my brain. There be no hallucinations here.
1. Returning to an hobby after almost half a year of not practicing is perhaps one of the best feelings in the world. My piano is old and kinda wonky but there’s no place I can lose myself better.
2. Reflecting on life while viewing a fantastic landscape, such as the one seen from my balcony (yes, it’s MINE. Not ours. MINE) yields surprising results. And better than just reflecting on life in the darkness of one’s room.
3. Anime, whatever they maybe, have really good songs in them. Like really good songs. I still remember ‘Flow’ by Sign. My god that was so good.:
Oh and this: Sakamichi No Melody by YUKI. The link’s a cover. No original version available on YouTube I’m afraid.
