A very musical week!
Project 365 of 2017: Days 29–33. First ukulele arrangement, Japanese and health-related issues
Today I recorded my very first fingerstyle ukulele arrangement! I was so excited when I bought my new instrument. I’m still excited though… The ukulele appears to be the harder instrument then I expected, but I’m practising every day. I decided to write my own arrangements from the first day rather than simply learn basic chords. I think that that way of learning the instrument works better for me.
Now I’m already working on my next arrangement.
I had to visit my doctor again because my stomach is acting like a bitch. I can’t eat at all! It hurts almost all the day from the wake-up time and until midnight. It turned out to be better than I thought, but still bad. Also, I thought a lot of the dialogue with my ex Momiji schoolmate. This amazing girl is practising in Japanese every day and basically taught herself alone from N5 (since the departure) to N2 in 1,5 years! It is an amazing and very motivational result. I even decided to reconsider my own learning system, because I’m still floating around N4 and it’s extremely sad. No photos today…
Started to write a new arrangement today. I chose “Something” by The Beatles. Love this song! It started pretty easy but then turned out to be a hard one! The main part is a piece of cake, but the refrain is a pain in the ass.
Another day dedicated to a ukulele practice! Also, I did my Japanese homework. When you have to go to the Japanese school only once per week (for 3 hours though…) homework becomes a real pain because you have to complete EVERYTHING without exceptions. So I sat with my books until midnight, but still, have a lot of questions regarding my homework. Remembering my last “day 30” dialogue with Arekusandora-san, I decided to spend at least 1,5 hours per day on my Japanese tasks.
Today I read a lot again. Now I’m reading a strange compilation of Chinese writers from Guangdong province. It’s the most populous province and the head of the Chinese economics. Actually, I know a little about modern Chinese literature, so I decided to buy this book and to learn something new.
