"When a song stirs a memory, when motes of dust turning in a shaft of light takes your attention from the world, when you listen to a train passing on a track at night in the distance and wonder where it might be going, you step beyond who you are and where you are. For the briefest of instants, you have stepped into the magic realm." — Robert R. McCammon
I went to visit Dr Seah again today: Removed a few more external stitches and the plastic splints inside my nose. I can breathe so much better now and my nose has stopped dripping. The doctor says it's looking really good (!) but I have to take extra precautions right now because although externally it's healing well, I don't want to disrupt the internal healing process.

I went in for an audition with Wild Rice, that was exciting! It was nice meeting Hossan for the first time and being able to showcase my singing and acting abilities (although my face is still swollen and limited in expression right now). I haven't worked with him before, but it would be such a pleasure to do so in the future! Keeping my fingers tightly crossed!
My first theatre audition of the year, and I'm so ready to step back into the theatre scene. Planning on auditioning for young & W!LD this year, that's definitely something to look forward to. I hope Edith is still heading the programme, it would be such an honour to train under her! This year, I'm focusing on training and improving my performance skills in singing, acting and dance.
It's 1:11 now, and I wish that for this year to be a year filled with love, joy, peace and accomplishments. Haha! # overachiever
Tomorrow, my sister and I are going to continue learning "Stand By Me" by Ben E King on our guitars. This year will probably be the year I get back to practicing the guitar and piano as well. Hopefully my brother will get a cajon so we can all jam together!
Surprisingly, I'm in a much better place than I was before. I feel happier and healthier, and things that used to cause me anxiety don't affect me way they did before. I can walk into a room full of people from my past and know exactly where I want to be.
