Symphonics Selections: Summertime

Symphonic Selections

It’s the middle of summer in Seoul. I’m melting from the heat and the humidity, and I’m honestly ready for this miserable weather to end. I’m really not sure if there is one good thing I can say about summer at the moment . . . except for the song “Summertime“. This song mentions that the livin’ is easy, but I digress. Still, this is one of my favourite jazz songs. Originally composed by George Gershwin for his opera, Porgy and Bess, this famous song is a jazz standards and has been covered by many artists. Some pieces are purely instrumental, but there are also vocal versions. For this round of Symphonic Selections, I decided to feature two arrangements of this piece — an instrumental and a vocal version.

Blogger Hangout: Holland

Blogger Hangout: Holland

I’ve been busy the last week or so! I finally got to meet another blogger friend. This time it was Holland! She and her boyfriend came here for a week, and I spent my time showing them around Seoul.

I’ve decided to start up a new column called Recent Realities. This will be a dump post of all my “Life Lately” occurrences. There are times when I want to summarise all my happenings, and I figure this new column will help me. This column will not be as regular compared to my other ones; I’ll just post this when I have a lot to cover. Like right now. Life’s been really kicking my butt lately, and I’m so tired. My summer work schedule is easier than the other seasons, but it’s just way more exhausting. The heat and humidity doesn’t help, either. I am so ready for winter. Aside from work, these are some of my major happenings since I do have a life outside of blogging, haha!
