Darleeng Days

Lainey Ann Darleeng| 16 | NYC | Musician

Let’s just say this is the more positive side of me. Lately there’s been too much negativity on my personal blog (http://laineydarling.tumblr.com/). I’ve been too busy whining & complaining that I haven’t been as productive as I’d like to be. I decided to do my own ‘a-photo-a-day’ blog just to keep myself productive. I want to see my life through a whole new perspective. And sometimes its just nice to cherish the little things in life. Stupid? Maybe.

Starting on January 1, 2011 I will be submitting:
-a photo taken during my day -a summary of my day (or at least the highlight) -a song expressing my mood or the way I feel by the end of my day.

Also, I will set a small goal that I would have to achieve by the end of the day. Something simple like reading a chapter from a book. Nothing too difficult or far fetched. In addition, a bigger goal that I should be able to get done by the end of the week.

Thinking Of You - Katy Perry

You’re the best, and yes, I do regret
How I could let myself let you go
Now, now the lesson’s learned
I touched it, I was burned
Oh, I think you should know..

Oh, no more mistakes
'Cause in your arms I'd like to stay, stay

Just another boring day. We’re currently learning an Alleluia song in Women’s Choir. I was definitely tired the entire day. Holy damn, I fell asleep during a mock state exam. Oh boy. Well, I don’t have really much to say. So, I’ll just leave it here. The will will explain everything else.

Womens Choir going through new material. First time going through half of the song. We need to rehearse more.

4/365

Today was pretty much a normal day of school. I didn’t really do much at all. There wasn’t really anything new in any of my classes though we are learning a new song in keyboard. The song is pretty freaky if you ask me. I didn’t really pay attention in keyboard though, the sheet music was easy enough to read. In womens’ choir, we rehearsed “Its Raining Men”. For ya’ll who don’t know what womens’ choir is in my school, well basically it’s a show choir of only women. 

After class my best friends & I hung out at Panera’s. We ate our dinner, watched funny videos, spoke for a while, & sang. Later on this evening, we met the members of bfrank music. Let me just say that I made it completely awkward. I seriously have barely to no social skills at all. I definitely embarrassed myself… oh well, that’s besides the point. We spoke with them for a while & just retouched whatever it was we needed to know. I’m pretty excited to be working with them.

My (very first) guitar, which unfortunately has no strings.

First day back from school & I could really say that this year is starting off well. No problems in school & I felt as if it was a fresh start. The only thing that bothered me was how extremely tired I was. My bad for not sleeping early enough & only catching 3 hours of sleep. 

My friend brought her guitar to school today & let me borrow it. Let me tell you, it feels so damn refreshing to finally be able to play guitar again. I felt as if all my problems were strummed away through music. I seriously miss playing guitar. It’s too bad I have to give her back the guitar by Wednesday morning. 

It’s amazing how much music can do. It can change a person’s complete opinion towards something. It can introduce us to an entirely different world. It can push all our stress away. It could explain a story. My favorite thing about music? I can express my feelings much easier. I can get my story across better. I really love playing guitar.

Unattractive looking steak due to lack of photography skills.

Second day of the new year. I didn’t really do much. I basically just stayed home & prepared everything I needed for school the next day. I was actually pretty excited to go back to school. I felt as though something great was going to happen. I felt like nothing was going to bring me down. I spent the entire day preparing for school, cleaning the house, & I even helped mama cook some steak soup. For the most part, my day was boring but it was actually relaxing and what not & the steak soup was delicious. Nomnomnomnomnom.

Happy 2011 Everyone! 1/365

What a great way to spend the New Year. I spent my time counting down to 2011 on tinychat with my lovely cousin Lilo (@dopeshizz) & my two nieces who happened to be with her along with my lovely Carlo (@carloudelacruz) & Patrick (@bayanip). It was pretty funny since Patrick was three hours behind. He said he was “looking into his future”. Alright, whatever you say Patrick. 

Not too long after that I went to bed but had a hard time because I was extremely giddy. I woke up that afternoon to my mother & brother knocking on the door. I happily ran to the front door to open it. My brother attacked me with the biggest kiss & the tightest hug in the world. I was practically in tears. I felt like it’s been forever when in reality, it was only 2 and a half weeks. Ah, feels so good to be a complete family again. Great way to start the New Year. 

Mom and I talked for a bit about the vacation. We looked at pictures & started looking at all the pasalubongs (gifts & souvenirs)  she bought from the Philippines. She gave me a bunch of presents my grandmother gave me, including a complete set of chordbooks for the newest music. After that, mom handed me a YouTube Pillow! I was tearing up with every word she said. It wasn’t much but it made me happy. I’m glad to have her back.

For the rest of the day, I didn’t really do much. Just spoke to the amazing John Cedrick (@lookitsjohn). We decided to work on a song that we’d post up for the New Year & let me tell you, it was a huge success (well at least in my opinion). He wrote the song & produced it while I sang it. Can you believe it? My first single? Thanks John! 

So, how’d I do for my first 365 post? Heh. I’ll get the hang of it in time. For the mean time, Happy New Years everyone! Remember that the New Year is nothing but a new year. Numbers change, dates change, but everything else doesn’t really change. People look at it an opportunity to change but honestly, in my opinion, our opportunity to change is never later, it’s always now. 

Hasta Luego!
