Ok gonna rush this post cause I'm meeting Jiams for supper/dessert later
So the gig was on Saturday!
I had a lot of fun :) I always do, performing. It's a rush that beats any other kind. That moment when you're on a stage doing what you love with your fellow musicians, it really feels like home. I also feel super blessed to have met many talented musicians over the years since I've started playing music despite my own mediocrity.
After the gig we had an enjoyable dinner together before we parted ways. I think there was a kinda mutual understanding that this was it, you know... after the gig there would be no more crazy 4-hour Tuesday night jamming sessions or late night pizza, and we would rarely have the opportunity to meet up as a unit again. Isaac gave us sweets and a handwritten note each (aww) and HK said, "We can always go for coffee," but really, with the busy conflicting schedules and all these new events and people constantly popping up in our lives, who actually has the time?
I guess this is the part where my bad habit of over-analyzing and over-thinking everything comes in haha I know some people can move on easily but I can't- I like to always have the same bunch of friends sticking around and I get really sad when people come in and go out of my life, even if we're not close.
When I was younger I used to think I was a bit of a misanthrope but now I realize I just get attached to people too easily, so when they don't reciprocate I try to tell myself I never really liked them in the first place.
First band in Amplified... hopefully not the last eh? Haha
Had a lot of fun working with these people, even if our genres didn't mix.
Jiams and DT (I love you two), and SJ and the JC classmates (I think it's weird how we got closer after JC)
The day after the gig my mom took out the old photo album and showed me this pic of my dad (rightmost guy) playing bass at NUS in 1981, also in his freshman year LOL. #runsinthefamily
Check out dem bell-bottomed jeans tho. Wish I grew up in the 70s too, it looks like it would've been fun. Or maybe not, since the baby boomers had it the hardest when their generation came out to work.
Also regret sending my mom the videos of me performing. She went around showing them to everyone- my cousins, uncles and aunts, even the teachers in the staffroom (also my former colleagues)... #moms
