thank god it's off day


im so tireddd...it's been a while since i last had a sleepless night. thought my bio clock was fixed already!? ughh..da lask of sleep made my tongue feel like lead today and my diction was terrible. haha luckily it got better. i've been singing jazz lately...and it's really tough. if you sing it straight it's fine..just really boring. but jazz is full of improvisations and it should be freestyled. been trying to imitate ella fitzergerald..haha i think she's like the goddess of improv. teach says it's something that you gain through experience...listen to more jazz and blues..and know your notes really well. i can do it...subconsciously..when im just humming a tune while walking home..or singing to glitz. but i cant do it consciously and it so darn frustrating. anyway i need to make a list...lol..just to make sure it comes to fruition...

things to do for aesthetic purposes
- apply whitening lotion once a day
- sleep before 2am..lol...
- stop eating potatoes...less carb...
- mask 3 times a week...
- hot bath once or twice...
- kickbox or swim if i have time...

things to do for music purposes
- sing chromatic scales...melodic and harmonic minor too....
- familiarize myself with new scales...
- practice plucking on da guitar...bar chords and power chords too...
- re-practice all da songs i've sung and add my own improvs...
- listen to more jazz and blues....

okay i think that's enough for now....it's half an hour past 2...and i think i should sleep...or at least try to...lol oyasumi~~
