September 22, 2008 at 9:53 PMHmm hey all!
Days like these I wish I could have every day (well... if I was paid to do it then HELL YES)
Anyhow it was like this - on sunday I found out I had no work what-so-ever this week because Boss was on holidays to do some Martial Arts in Korea (I didn't even know!!!) I was a bit mopy and upset (and worried!!) as I had plans (ang things to pay off) to use this weeks-pay to buy some new equipment (I even pushed foward for extra shifts) - but it turned the opposite direction; Anyhow I am actually thanking the universe for this chance to practise hardcore.
So after working up on the following day A.K.A Monday (which was yesterday) -
My routine was as followed : Practise 15 minutes (timed), rest for 5~10 (Light to deep breathing during that resting period) then re-enter on with some stretchs.
and my god... It worked wonders! I started practising from 9 AM till 3 PM just working on intonation and etudes, after that it got too hot to continue so I slept till 5 PM. Then started practising again till 8 PM till I ate the wrong combinations of food! Damn stomach.. the food took me down :P
Continuing on - I FELT like I achieved a great deal within this session, I also achieved some sort of... inner-conscience to my instrument I really felt connected - I don't know what it was, but at one stage when I was practising scales I handn't even noticed I shifted into beyond 7th position (Only using finger 1 - usually if I do single finger scales I Follow the pattern of 1st/3rd/2nd position never go beyond the reach of my F4) just to practise intonation - I knew I was hitting the notes but I didn't even KNOW I was that high till I opened my eyes .. of course that connection snapped when I stopped by 3 PM
What a relaxed life I live hahaha... still I want to be very good =[
