Hello… again


I must be honest. I am such a music geek. I went to the Institute of Music Juan Morel Campos, if you don’t know who it is look it up (creator and mass Composer of the Puertorrican Danza) and all of the students left that know me were very happy to see me. And they started to ask how were things and asked me of  my plans for a Masters. I was shocked I think that they knew what I meant with the expression on my face and they only said Conducting and Composition RIGHT??? Wow. Why am I telling you this. BECAUSE ITS TRUE jaja anyways my point is today I was browsing on youtube and found this amazing little video of the Super Choir known as VocalEssence singing one of , world famous composer, Eric Whitacre’s Nox Aurumque.  This amazing piece is in latin and here’s the Translation:

NOX AURUMQUE

Gold,
Tarnished and dark,
Singing of night,
Singing of death,
Singing itself to sleep.
And an angel dreams of sunrise,
And war.

Tears of the ages.
O shield!
O gilded blade!
You are too heavy to carry,
Too heavy for flight.

Gold,
Tarnished and weary,
Awaken!
Melt from weapon to wing!
Let us soar again,
High above this wall;
Angels reborn and rejoicing with wings made
Of dawn,
Of gold,
Of dream.

Gold,
Singing of wings,
Singing of shadows.

If you are STILL curious to hear it AS YOU SHOULD  here is the youtube link!!!!

When I first saw you


When I first saw you, I fell in love
You asked me last summer
but I couldn’t  tell you that

When I first saw you
I saw your raw pure talent
The one that now you see
after all those months of thespian-sy

When I first saw you, I fell in love
so hard it made God cry
And now I’m so stupid
That I could follow you stupid
to the end of the world and back
on a balloon ride to never land

When I first saw you , I fell in love
so scared now I would cry a river and ride back
to the land my heart sank
where you told me …. you love me back

How to write an A+ research paper


I’m a College student in his 3rd undergraduate year and i got the brilliant idea that, since i like the English language so much I’d do a minor in it. This semester I’m taking the ENGL 224 class aka Grammar and Essay writing for English Majors and my professor is Dr. Montero (who has a PhD in  Linguistics and that ROCKS) and for the end of the semester I have to make a research paper on How the media plays a role in shaping the society’s opinion (when i read it i thought of the evil hanna montana [please kill her]) Here’s a link to “How to write an A+ Research Essay”
