Look at how long my hair is now! and LOOK how weird my face is! This picture is a still from one of my reject videos. I kinda look like domukun, eh?
Kits (xcreativexsoulx) made this for me for my 19th birthday back in December! Thank you so much Kits! I love it!! Kits knows that I love my piano! He was one of my first subscriptions on YouTube after the prominent tubers I was subscribed to. Also, him and Yun (yunfengfu) were also some of my first few subscribers. How cool! I was planning on making a video showcasing all the wonderful things people were making for me, but I decided I would show them on my written blog instead. =)
My YouTube buddies are always so supportive, I love you guys seriously! Oh and HI, Johnee, Russell, and Martin, Love you guys!
Thanks for being patient, I'm really busy with college, church, and other activities, and I'm trying to catch up with everything.
I lava you all, God Bless,

Then, when I wasn't practicing piano, my dad would sit and play "Hey Jude" all dramatically, and I would just watch.
My dad made a big influence on my taste in music. Hearing that music now, brings back old memories. Memories of when music was first introduced to me.
Back in the day, I loved Ace of Base, No Mercy, Spice Girls, Jewel, and Boys II Men. There were more I think, but those are the most significant. I listened to their CASSETTES all the time. In the car, in my cassette player, ALL THE TIME.
Then, my brother gave me something called a CD, and it was Celine Dion, The Colour of My Love 1993 Album. I was blown away.
He also gave me Green Day and Smashing Pumpkins CDs. I got into that too. WOW.
One day, after I got off the bus to my house, I walked inside and saw five guys dancing in the rain on the TV. It was the Backstreet Boys. NOW, I was in love. Soon after came NSYNC, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and then came my obsession with Total Request Live on MTV, back when Carson Daly was VJ. It was a daily ritual to watch it. (I would catch the #1 video once I arrived home, and I would watch the rerun at 8 pm)
It all started in Elementary School. Now I'm getting older and I listen to pretty much everything. Music was my life. Well, still IS my life.
- a narrative of when music firstcame into my world
Love and Peace,

I've finally started to teach myself guitar. I've always, ALWAYS, always wanted to play the guitar. But, for some reason I ended up taking more of a classical route with my piano and violin playing.
I didn't know what I was getting into, guys. It's not like the ukulele! The first weeks were painful as hell. It has only a month since I've started, but I am extremely happy that the pain is subsiding, and I'm really getting the hang of it...I think. Of course, I need to give a big thank you to all the musicians that I watch on YouTube, like Yun, [who I mentioned in my blog about piano] (yunfengfu), Chris (ccendana), Dustin (tsud123), Jeremy (passionsf), Seeso (seeso), WHY ONLY GUYS?! Ok, Olivia (oliviathai), Jennifer (JenniferJChung), Julia (jaaaaaaa) so many more! They are all such an inspiration.
Well, I know I'm slow with the video updates, and it's because I'm really determined to finish learning something(s) on the piano and guitar. I'm one of those people that start something, but never finish. So this time, I WANT TO FINISH. The one thing that is slowing me down from finishing, is that I'm trying to learn multiple songs. (I GET BORED/TIRED/DISTRACTED REALLY EASILY.)
Thank you Gen (genebeee) for letting me borrow your guitars! I lava you!
I'll make a video as soon as I find the time, and as soon as I feel I've practiced enough. =)
