This is the logo of the youth band that i'm part of. Nice right? It was done up by my sis!

But if only having a nice logo meant that the band would sound good. Someone came up to tell us that we sounded so bad that he was cringing while listening to us play. And then after, he told us not to take offence.

Seriously, I took great offence. Because, we have been working so hard, going beyond our confort zones to try and play this song and all he told us was that we sounded bad. It didn't feel like constructive criticism at all. And if everyone could use the line 'oh don't take offence to what i just said' after saying the most hurtful things to people, it just wouldn't be fair.

I went back, channeled my hurt to music and I decided that we should try another song. Hopefully it'll be better and the band isn't too demorialized to play. Our performance is tomorrow night and I decide to change the song the night before.

I'm utterly, conpletely spent.

Wanna go run and swim tomorrow. Sigh.

    hey KL

    i understand how you feel -- the best music comes from the heart, in fact thats how most great and timeless pieces come from ;)

    know that everyone has a diff taste in music, just might be unlucky cuz he had diff taste...listen to the songs yourselves, make YOUR own judgement -- thats the most important.. ;)

    dont overstress yourself :)
