What's the new normal these days? This got me thinking today, and I thought I should make a list.
1. Wearing Masks. Obviously, it's still COVID season, and there's even talks that this virus is here to stay. So definitely, even as we ease into a general community quarantine setting, face masks should already be part of our wardrobe.
2. Social Distancing. How close can we get to each other? Not too close anymore if we don't want to risk ourselves from getting infected from asymptomatic individuals.
3. Work from Home. I'm not sure how many of us can get back to working from traditional work setting but most employers are already looking into this work-from-home setup, especially if commuting to get to their workplace is still a challenge for the employees.
4. Staying at Home. With the non-availability of vaccines for COVID yet, more people would opt to stay at home (even if they're already allowed to) if they have no business with the outside world.
After learning about the success of John Mayer Live in Manila concert last October 1st despite the heavy rain, I thought it must have been a really really good concert. When I was still single, I had the chance to watch concerts of bands and even solo performers playing this type of music genre. It's nice to watch concerts once in a while especially when you don't have any guilt feelings about spending for your tickets to the show because you know you deserve it.
John Mayer is really known for his great acoustic music and for talking a lot in his performances. :-) To give you an idea of what it would have been like to be in one of his concerts, you can check out this video I found from youtube. It's called Love Song For No One and I dedicate this song to the DGs (read my previous post about what the acronym stands for) and to all people who are probably tired of being alone. LOL.
Love Song For No One Lyrics
Staying home alone on a Friday
Flat on the floor looking back
Let me just quickly update you on our little girl's interest in singing. Although she's not done yet with her all-time favorite Disney theme song "Let It Go", she is now starting to learn a new song that she discovered online and that is Chandelier by Sia. Quite a challenging and difficult song, I must say. In fact, she tried to sing along with this song on youtube over and over so she can get the notes (and hopefully the lyrics) perfectly right; however, it looks like she would do better with custom ear plugs on. With the ear plugs' noise reduction feature, there is a good chance that she can concentrate and won't get lost with the notes. Yeah, I really think that's what she needs to get help improve or develop her singing.
