Life as A Damansarian

generally,there's nothing much to blog about since my life here is el perfecto! except a few incidences occurring throughout the week,mainly the minor flaws that add a touch of somewhat flavour to the perfection.i've noticed that i've gone through a lot along my 17 years of life,my age may be young,but my experience is way beyond any other 17-year-olds (as far as i know).not saying i'm matured in any way,because honestly i'm not!looks can be deceiving,never trust your eyes.ok,cutting to the chase,Monday was pretty awkward for me,why?simply because usually back in convent,we used to sing the JOHOREAN state anthem,but last monday we had to sing the SELANGOR state anthem.i didn't have a clue and it was a major irony since i was born in selangor.also,there are other highlights of the week as well.Hazeem is finally showing his true colours! gosh,i thought he was just some nerd,but i was proven wrong when he finally talked to me,not that it's a big deal or anything.he was asking about how many hot girls back in convent were in my friendship circle. == that was pointless really,i should've asked him what's in it for me if I hooked him up?haha.sports was indeed pointless too,we had to practically walk/jog/stroll for 2.5km TWICE! it's for the sake of preparing ourselves for the upcoming walkathon,i never liked sports anyway.not forgetting,i have a new drummerboy now,who basically lives next door.he's pretty cute,but i'm guessing he might be one or two years older than usual,i never really plan my weekends properly since i'm not much of a social butterfly.i may have many friends but i don't go out that often,which explains why going out with Kak Abby to Sari Ratu yesterday was such a big deal to my mom.i don't really blame her,in fact,it is my exam's my new year resolution to reduce my outings and all the fooling around just to focus more on the most important exam in my life this year, was fun meeting kak abby for 1hour plus,we had a lot to catch up and the brief chat was certainly not enough.i'm planning to meet the whole gang on my 17th birthday but it's not been confirmed yet.i'm not expecting another sweet 16 celebration like last year.after all,nothing is sweet about being 17 (except the fact that i have one more year left to leave the underage world,mwuh ha ha ha!!).what i'm worried of now,after SPM of course,is my band's target.if all of you have read our blog,we aimed to have our first single airplay in 2011,that was when we thought all the members would actually stick with the band.the problem now is,everyone's having their own problems.shafiq with his finances and a couple of other personal issues,rin with her work,desiree with her time constraint and transportation problems and worst of all,we don't even have a lead or bassist yet.i've been asking around but to no was a slight relief that many had suggested that i record an accoustic track with shafiq first before the band goes live or's a good idea.however,the negative side of this situation is the fact that sometimes i feel discouraged by my friends.they used to support me all the way and now they're backing up just like that?it's very much disappointing to know that even your friends don't believe in your talent and passion.i'm just glad that a few friends(although minority) is actually telling me to go for it,my family's beginning to understand part of it is that my mentor is supporting me all the way,as how i had been supporting him since i was a's not the matter of getting even or repaying anyone in any way,it's just a sincere internship kind of connection,like a mentor and protege',like a jedi master teaching a jedi warrior-to-be.this is exactly what i meant:

i'm glad i have him as my mentor,very concern and doesn't let me down or tries to create my downfall.he told me to believe in myself and keep paving my way to infinity.there's no doubt,he's an excellent mentor :) i won't stop for anything.i'll make him proud someday,all of you just wait and see.and of course,last but not least,to someone who indirectly demotivated me,success is made up of only 1%..i repeat ONE PERCENT of inspiration and 99% of doesn't mean that if you're not born as a music prodigy,you'll never become a musician ever even if you work hard towards other words,you don't have to be a miracle baby or Mozart to be a musician,be it part-time or full-time.please stop discouraging me or just keep your oppinions to yourself.thank you.happy monday to all and thanks for reading!
