huiting says hi

Welllllll this is the public blog, so the things written here should be more-or-less stomach-able. ;) So I guess this is where I say the mandatory line:

This blog documents the thoughts and growth process of:
A free soul roaming the world in search of some meaning to life.

Pretty sure that's not the exact way I phrased it when I had my old blog skin but WTV HAHA.

Oooooh wait I think I wrote it as "lonely soul" instead of "free soul". But hey guys I've grown out of that emoshitz phase already alright ;)

Enjoy.

人生就是要盡情地瘋 / I am a free soul.

Eating as a form of distraction
A little frustrated (TN: VERY frustrated) that I can't seem to get a perfect piece of recording for the piano songs that I play. Every time I record, I'll seem to get distracted in the middle of the recording, be it by my own mistakes, or the sound of the dog scratching itself, or the incessant whine of the drills that start playing in the background due to construction. Or by the sound of the lift doors opening and the dog jumping up and running towards the door. Or by the thought of someone opening the front door and coming into the room when I am recording.

And when I get distracted, I make a mistake. Or mistakes. Then my brain would focus on the mistake. And I would make more mistakes.

What will allow me to keep playing within the flow? Within my own little bubble of space and intensity, without allowing my mind to drift even when I make a mistake? How do I keep my mind focused on the moment of playing instead of elsewhere?

I see now that this is probably what Coach Yakov (Yuri!!! On Ice) meant when he said that Yuri Plisetsky lacked experience in competitions; Yurio would get nervous, and then that nervousness causes him to miss his jumps. Somehow, every performer, every athlete, will need to be able to control their minds and their minds' wanderings, directing those wanderings into better executing whatever it is that they are executing instead of allowing them to distract them from the executions. It probably requires some sort of training or experience to be able to reroute one's mind immediately when such distractions occur.

Sigh. It's frustrating indeed. But I probably ought to give myself time.

And I probably need to eat less snacks or else I'd be back to my pre-France uni (plumper) self in no time. -sigh-
