Just Breathe

Ok, this will prolly be a short one coz well.. not only I didn't exactly get better, I'm having trouble breathing and I don't know why. Like.. really. It's like someone has closed off a part of my throat or something. Wtf is wrong with me?? Sigh.

During this afternoon, I've had quite a lot of mixed feelings, I mean... I think I can call it as that, which of course I'm not gonna tell you everything coz some things are meant to be kept private. I think it has set in, I am sooo totally terrified of the coming months. Fine. Years. Just put in any synonym of scared and I'm it.

The people here, well at least my batch, are like.. I think at least maybe 85% from mainland China. I'm not sure if I wrote about it in my last post but I'm not gonna be bothered to check. I'm terrified coz I know for sure they're gonna be like... WHOAAAA. And like how one of my friends, also from Malaysia, illustrated it as.. ok, picture this.

There's this plate of Mango Chicken (only coz we ate that for dinner which is actually quite nice, it's like home-cooked food in a way) and he used his spoon and scooped up a teeny tiny bit of the mayo and said. There... THIS is our talent. And THAT(the whole entire plate of Mango Chicken) is THEIR talent. They're that good.

Although one of the advisers? I think. I guess I could call that guy as our adviser. Told us that we all have our own weaknesses and strengths. And well, we.. might be a lot better in the English language than them, but they're very very strong in their practical, which we lack. :( And that is an extremely crucial part studying here.

So we're (meaning uhm.. 3 of us Malaysians and some other people I think, oh and there're only 3 of us Malaysians I think, or maybe one more I'm not sure coz the person hasn't arrived yet, or maybe I heard wrong) are exempted from the English Language class coz he thought that we could use the time to practice our instruments. Although!!! All of us will have to take QET(Qualifying English Test... I think) this Friday. AND!!! If we were to fail, we gotta take extra English classes for the semester I think. Quite a lot of the seniors said that the test wasn't really easy.


Competing with them is gonna be sooo freaking hard. When maybe half of them studied in like.. music schools before coming here. I think. Sighhhh...




uh oh... I think I stopped breathing.
