The emptiness in me had me seeking to have it filled. Since I was in quite a state of desperation, I caught High School Musical 3: Senior Year in the cinemas. I had not much expectations from the preview of the soundtrack, but I still paid the eight dollars.
Whoa~ I didn’t expect it to remind me of the dilemmas I face everyday.
Can I Have This Dance
by Zac Efron & Vanessa Hudgens
Update 29th October 2008: Added portion of the movie; broadcasted during Dancing with the Stars (and therefore the applause at the end of the video clip). My favorite moments are right below the clip:
0:57 – Gabriella seems very light~! And I like the way she arches upwards.
0:59 – Same lift as 0:57. Light and effortless as always. And I think she pointed her feet~!
1:19 – Uh oh… Troy looked downwards to make sure that he doesn’t fall…
1:20 – See! He does that again…
1:33 – Whoa~! That’s quite a drop. And she is on heels~!
1:57 – I liked the way they spin round and Gabriella just rests her weight on on foot.
2:18 – Whoo~
2:38 – I wonder how they can accelerate the spin and yet make it seem so smooth…
Okay… Not bad… 🙂 The choreography definitely made the soundtrack more promising. End of update insert.
High School Musical being a musical, had quite a bit of dancing and pa de deux. (The song above is played when Troy and Gabriella waltzed on the rooftop garden.) That made me miss dance so much. I’ve basically dropped all dance activities after Dance Reflections 2008. No more TAT, no more dance rehearsals, and am no longer attending technique class. SIGH~ And I miss being part of a production, being in sync with the dancers on stage, and the burst of endorphin at the end of each performance.
Whilst the high school seniors are deciding which college to go to after their graduation, I am constantly reminded of which job I should take up after the graduation I have myself. And the reminders come in everyday… Suddenly I am extremely confused of what career path I should take. Bioengineering? Design? IT? Systems integration? Bioimaging? Apple/Google? Going from Primary school to university had been easy: just choose the best place available. Things are so different from here on… Worse still, I have totally no motivation to attend career talks/exhibitions, not to mention searching for jobs on the papers. I know I should be doing these, given the economic downturn and thus the increased difficulty to get a job, but I seriously have no motivation.
How to end this university musical of my own… Haiz…
From the previous episode of Desperate Housewives
If you look closely into the faces of your friends, you’ll see it. Right behind their smiles, you will see a certain green-eyed monster, and then you’ll understand how envious they are of your well-kept home… your delicious recipes… and your tasteful sessions.
But you’ll have to work hard to see the jealousy, because good friends always work hard to hide it.
May I say something? When I know of the progress my friends are making with their job hunting and interviews, in the words of Lynette Scarvo, I felt so jealous my stomach hurt. Why am I still so lost and unmotivated? Why does it seem that others already know what they want?
没有啦～我是蛮真诚的为你 “ridiculously large amount of annual pay” 感到开心和骄傲的。I’m just bitterly jealous that’s all.
