Instant Connection—Soulmates? Reborn?

Today, one of my good friends was on my mind. I sometimes wonder how we got along so well in the beginning. I mean, when I first came to know of him, we didn’t talk at all. We sort of just acknowledged each other’s presence.

But now, we send each other pictures of our kitties or other things (mainly fluffs) and talk about anything. And since we’re both techie, there are some days when we write pseudo-code to each other. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s basically code written in plain English (or whatever speaking-language).

We’re not that close yet, but there are some days when I think about what it would be like if we dated. Would there be a change? What would change?  I read a lot of books and watch a lot of television dramas. People change when they’re in a relationship, subtly or drastically. When I wondered aloud if my sister, who is harsh in her words, would become nicer once she fell in love and started dating someone, she shot back asking if I would also change? I think I would…but I don’t know how. Maybe become more clingy, if I wasn’t already clingy enough (at least I admit to this!)

But here is a song that talks about rebirth from a relationship. How you change. It’s sort of an oldie Vocaloid song. I discovered it back when I was still into these autotune sounds haha x)

Violins~ Violins everywhere

Lately I’ve been really into string instrument songs, particularly violin ones. It’s probably because it was Lunar New Year this past weekend, and all I’ve been hearing is the festive music in Chinese culture. Of course, we have our own violin called the erhu, but I still love the sounds of the strings vibrating making music.

I always stated that when I have enough money, I’ll upgrade my current violin to become nicer sounding and I’ll also get an erhu so I could play my favorite tunes.

This week, starting today, I’ll be posting some of my favorite violin songs.

This one is Senbonzakura, a cover made by the renown Lindsey Stirling:

Isn’t it so beautiful? I love this song so much. I had actually forgotten about it until it popped up as a memory in my Facebook newsfeed.

I just love the fact that it’s very modern, yet holds a traditional melody and flow somewhere. Modern and traditional music mixed together is so awesome, I cry every time.
