I’ve had a goodass winter break so far [despite being sick]. I got sick this weekend [while at work… yay..] and couldn’t go to work on Monday, and am still getting over it, but yesterday was bombbb!
Woke up and got Bagel Shop/nails done/Verde/went to pacific commons with Mina. We haven’t seen each other since Halloween weekend, and it was the first time we’ve kicked it just the two of us in a longggg time, and it felt so good. It sucks that not seeing each other for over a month is normal for us now, when until college started, it was weird when we didn’t see each other for 2-3 days. But guess that just shows how strong out friendship is. After we kicked it, I went to work.
And then I called up DavidWu and we got Supertaco [yes I ate a lot yesterday..] and then just kicked it at my house for a bit… and randomly decided to call up CathyChen&OtisLee&ThuTran and they all came over and we had a catch up session/hang out thing that lasted until 2AM. It felt so good to laugh so hard tears come to my eyes. It’s been a long time.
It’s tough keeping friends in college, but it’s so nice to know that in the end, the people who had your back in high school are still down to chill. Love love love my synco buddies. <3

I wrote awhile ago about how I’m getting more involved with VSA by being a part of their culture show and everything. Rehearsals officially start this Sunday, and I’m kind of excited! I’ve been bonding with VSA people a lot lately :)
But anyway, a friend asked if I wanted to be a part of his act for JSA’s show, and I agreed, because, well.. I haven’t had a chance to work on music in awhile. Like yeah, I’ve been in choir and everything, but that’s not the same as… well, a lot of stuff I did in high school. I’m not doing acapella right now, and it sucks because I really really miss it. I miss crazy rehearsals, spontaneous jam sessions, standing in front of a crowd with people I love, about to do what we do best. But y’all know that already because I’ve been complaining about how much I miss Synco for awhile haha.
Anyway, I’m meeting up with my friend after stats today so we can decide what we’re singing… and then rehearse. And I’m stoked.
But then I get this e-mail, saying that they need more students in a Student Showcase… next week. I ask my friend if he wants to do it, and he says, “Sure, why not?” So while looking for a song we might be able to learn/perform in.. 7 days, I thought, “What about Quando Quando Quando?”
Which makes me look through my tumblr posts for the version I sang with Alvin [and go on Youtube to look up GabeBondoc’s version, which is what Alvin&I based ours on], and it made me miss him SO much. BESTFRAAAN, IF YOU’RE READING THIS, I MISS YOU.
But.. I’m really really excited to get back to work on music, outside of a classroom environment. Listening to myself from just a few months ago makes me cringe a little bit, but.. its a good thing. It means I can hear what I need to improve on. And I feel like I’ve been able to work on my voice since school started, so hopefully things will work out!
I’m excited :)
I love my Syncopasians. <3
Most of 1stGen
Even though it’s been a few months since I was a part of this group, it still feels like home when I come back. I love them so much… I forgot how much of a family we all are. Yes, we still are a family, even though we rarely see each other. I mean, looking at the 1st gen, we have people at Berkeley, SCU, UCDavis, UCIrvine, UCSD [not pictured], WeberStateUniversity [in Utah], Oberlin [in Ohio], JohnHopkins… and then the current members are still at Mission. But when we get together, you can’t deny our chemistry. So no, while Syncos aren’t the most technically advanced group, we sound damn good&perform pretty well because of the amazing mix of people we have.
Miss them so much <3 (:
I guess the point of this post is that…. I don’t understand why people hang out with people they don’t like. I surround myself with positive people who make my life better, because… well, they make me happy, you know? But I know so many people who are constantly complaining about the people they hang out with, yet they don’t do anything about it. And that just doesn’t make sense to me. Sure, maybe you have a long history with that person, but what’s the point if you’re miserable when you’re with the person? Meh. Whatever.
So this is just a big shout out to everybody who’s made my life a better one, just by being in it. Love you allllll!
I love music. Both listening to and making it.
I know it sounds corny, but my soul feels so relaxed right now. We had two choir concerts [two days in a row], and… just listening to the Chamber Women’s Choir today made all the aches and pains in my body go away. Singing through the whole Vivaldi Gloria felt like such an accomplishment today. The soloists sounded amazinggg. Even though we weren’t perfect, we sounded damn good, and I… just feel so happy right now :) I have to admit - I wasn’t too thrilled about choir this quarter, and I was debating whether I should continue it here at SCU next quarter or not. But I knew whatever doubt I had would probably go flying out the window after the concert, and.. well I was right.
And… during intermission, people from SCU’s acapella group got together and did a few songs [White Christmas, Lion King], and… it makes me really sad that I’m not doing acapella this year. And made me miss Synco like no other.
When I hear good music, I can’t help but be drawn to it. When I personally know someone(s) performing, the surge of pride I feel overwhelms me. Good music makes me tear up, and I get tingles throughout my body [wow I’m so lame]. There’s just something about it.
Oh&slightly unrelated, I love my friends. They’re so supportive <3 Even though a choir concert isn’t at the top of most people’s “to-do” list on a Friday night, they showed up for me anyway. <3 Love you, Elle, Josh, Amanda, and Sean.
