Dream a little dream of me

I just had to make a poem about this because I’ve been having non-stop dreams that are coming true. It’s a bit creepy and cool at the same time since some of them are about tests. Not the answers, just events before the tests occur.

Whenever I drift-off for the day’s rest

I tend to have dreams,

of the worst and best.

Some are of flowers and sunshine,

of family and friends

While others are of darkness and rains,

of sorrows and pains.

Then there are those rare ones,

the ones that come true

Some are simple things,

like stuff of different hues

Others are quite disturbing,

that I do sometimes rue

Seeing those events unfolding,

when their time is due.

Good or Bad?

These dreams that I’ve had

As long as it ain’t about the world ending,

then there’s no reason to be sad.

Research: A nerdy hobby of mine

I am willing to admit that I am a nerd. I like reading and learning new things. Also, I like doing random research.

Hearing the word “Research” sounds boring. However, adding the word “Random” to it makes it exciting. That’s how I like things to be.

Being a nerd that loves to do research has definitely paid-off. At my former college/course, I was able to get into almost any organization and even get a scholarship if I wanted to. (Of course, I didn’t apply for a scholarship since I know some people that need it more than me.) Plus, it also helped me smoothly transferring to another college of my choosing. After all, who would deny a nerd that could contribute valuable information?

This hobby of mine has obviously helped me a lot of times; the most recent one being yesterday during Voice Class. We were asked a few weeks earlier to research and report on Classical Vocal Music. It was tough but doable. Why was it hard? Because I haven’t done research in this field of study before, at least not in the method I’m used to doing.

After weeks of checking-out books from the library and nights reading and typing up information, my efforts finally bore fruit at noon yesterday when we reported about it.

Trust me when I say that my partner and I were awesome! The amount of slides was just right and informative enough. The additional facts I gave totally impressed the professor since she was known to be a tad bit strict. Also, we were able to fit the whole report in 30 minutes or less, which included the audio materials!

I was even able to give a side story about Mozart saying something like “If the performance would be as awful as the rehearsal, then I would go up to the orchestra, steal the violin from the first chair, and conduct the orchestra myself!”

That would have been funnier if I translated it into modern slang:

“If they’re going to suck that much at the show, then I will get the violin from the dude playing in first chair, and conduct the friggin’ orchestra myself!”

I can so imagine Mozart saying that since our professor told us that he was a bit childlike.

This is why research is a hobby of mine. Some may find it boring and nerdy, but it totally works for me.
