It’s been a year since we’ve become trainees under Cube Entertainment. I can proudly say that we have greatly improved. I somehow overcome my fear of belting high notes still, there’s too much to learn about it. We continued on with our schedules that are modified weekly. The tasks are getting harder each day not too mention about the strict diet everyone must go through.
It’s no excuse whether you are a boy or girl. For me, this is the toughest thing since I really love to eat sweets since it has been my comfort food after all the bad memories that I had. I eat it when I’m depressed, under great pressure, irritated, having a problem, bored… well, anything you can think of. I always crave for sweets. Since we have strict diets, I have to limit my intake of sweets and boy, that just doubled no maybe tripled the toughness of this training regime. Trust me, I’ll give a hella performance every evaluation if they’ll let me have my sweets but they always tell me that it’s all about discipline… yeah.. Discipline my ass. Tch. Aish! Give me my sweets! Give me back my life!
I’ve been friends with all the trainees by now, we treat each other like family. Since I’m an only child I always wanted to have someone by my side or to know how it feels like to have siblings and so far, it’s been amazing! However they said that it’s a lot different and far more irritating to have true siblings *laughs* oh well, for me they’re my real siblings. My second family woops now that I think about it, it’s my third actually, Even though I’m not registered, I treat Cassiopeia family as my second family. I had never been so inclined to a group than what I had been in Cassiopeia.
Aside from this, it’s been a years since I last saw B2st oppas. They went overseas so are the other Cube artists namely, G.na and 4Minute. I still haven’t met them but I’m a fan of them too. They’re really talented both in singing and dancing. I find it cool too that G.na has been a back up dancer for Hyuna’s Change. Aww! I want to experience that too! ^.^ I really miss B2st. I can’t even send them a mail or text since they confiscated our cellular devices not too long ago. Aww! Can you see that? They even deprived us of technology?! *sigh* They said that we should now start to only think of ways on how to further improve our skills. We should also challenge ourselves to surpass our own limits and became better each day. Don’t you think it’s a little bit harsh? My cellular device... T_T
You’re probably wondering how my other friends are. Well, from the moment we surrendered our cellular phones, every Sunday, We practice by our group, Octeit. Still, we will have our different scheduled during the rest of the days. As I’ve said, our scheduled are focused on what we lack or on our weak points.
By the way, we’ve also started to learn some musical instruments since it’s a plus factor to know how to play even at least the most basic chords. Sam, Thy and Karen knows how to play guitar. And in case of Karen, she also knows how to play the piano and the basics of the drums, for her, she’s learning more about the drums. Thy and Sam are mastering the guitar. JV’s taking up guitar lessons. As for me, I already took guitar lessons during our free times every weekend so I know how to play it already. (kekeke I’m smart you know. ^.^) Rather than mastering it, I would rather learn another instrument so I’m taking up Piano lessons.
For our own schedules, as for me it’s still more on vocals since I still have to learn to control my vocals. Same for JV and Thy but aside from this, JV has to take up some more modeling classes, since they said that he has to project a lot more and so as to build up confidence while performing. For Thy, he has to take up rapping lessons. As for Karen and Sam, They have to attend yoga classes and work on their stamina for they can’t hold for a long period of time.
It’s really hard to balance all the things that we need to do and the responsibilities we need to fulfill. Call me a masochist or whatever but the truth is I’m quite enjoying this. Even though it’s hard, I get to learn a lot and hey! It’s for free! ^.^ plus, as this gets harder It feels as if I’m getting closer to my dream.
