The Internal Arguments of a Restless Mind

It’s like a continuous internal debacle, honestly.

So for those who don’t know, I am– undeniably– single as f***.

And with that thought, I’m looking for other things to occupy my mind (and my time), as well as enhance myself. Because you know what they say, “Make the most of yourself….for that is all there is of you.” I think it was Ralph Waldo Emerson who said that.

So far, I’ve tried my hand at belly dancing (which is actually fun as heck), photography (until my camera busted out on me T_T), writing (my FanFiction site is still growing! Still haven’t made my own fiction work… sad…), music (only on an ukulele though), and drawing (left that behind in my college days though). So now I am in that inevitable conundrum of asking myself…

What now? O_O

I’ve considered a couple of things, one of which I probably posted way too much here. I’m still interested in learning music (particularly the guitar), but I lack the ‘funding’ for proper lessons. I wanted to try and fix my voice so I won’t embarrass myself during karaoke nights, but that would take lessons. I’ve been searching around musciansfriend for a quality guitar, but without lessons, I’m still doomed. Ugh.

The second thing is that I’m considering of going after my Master’s Degree… which is, in itself, a debacle as well. Master’s in what? Education? Librarianship? Where am I going to study? How much will it cost to study? Will my workplace even allow me to study?

Honestly, I think I prefer trying my hand at playing music. Now if I can only find a decent teacher (or a book) and a decent-but-cheap guitar or piano.

What do you guys think?

From Ukulele to Acoustic Guitar?

I am actually thinking of buying an Acoustic Guitar… probably just a cheap one for the time being, not like the expensive ones.

It’s not that I don’t like the ukulele, I actually love it to bits. But the thing is, there are just some songs that don’t sound good on the Ukulele… like the “Huling El Bimbo”. It’s such a good song, but I personally believe that the song should be played a little more hauntingly. The ukulele makes any song seem so light-hearted, so it does not go quite well for a song like “Huling El Bimbo”.

Anyway, I actually tried playing my college bestfriend’s Classical Guitar before… I sucked at it. Hahaha! But I am willing to do it now. Call me trying to find my musical talent, since I suck at singing.

It’s going to be while before I can buy an Acoustic Guitar. Hopefully I can make a video of me playing it, although I haven’t actually made a video of me playing Ukulele yet. ~_~

Yep, I’m a member of the  Point and Shooters Community Forum now. ^_^v

Mainly because I need to work on how to shoot with my camera…

For those of you who don’t know, is actually a site made by my blogging master, geri, as well as his friends to bring together different Point And Shoot camera users together to participate in photowalks and other events. They also help amateurs (like me ~_~) in taking great photos with digital cameras.

Most of my pictures are taken with my sister’s Nikon CoolPix L20… it’s an okay camera, but I have problems about how to handle it and how to use the different settings. I’m hoping I can learn a lot from them and participate in their photowalks soon. XD
