Got back from a recital. Singing this piece. It could've gone a lot better, but I suppose it could've gone a lot worse as well for a first time. In the end, practice is practice is practice. Performing arts are hard. :'( at least I looked pretty cute (my strength).

Oof, mon coeur s'ouvre a ta voix, en effet. Quelle belle voix, mais avec un élément de la musique rock. Malheureusement, je ne sais pas si l'original était comme ça. Je vais devoir regarder cette musical. Moi, je étudie avec l'opéra. Mais, parfois c'est difficile à comprendre les mots que le vibrato obscurit.
Tough. I don't know what I would do if my grandmother died, she is the one person outside my immediate (nuclear) family that I can genuinely say I love-- yes, it is difficult to be close to extended family especially when you don't live in the same country. I think it goes without saying, spend time with your grandmother. You don't want to have any regrets when she passes, which at this point seems very possible; while it's ideal to stay positive one must also look ahead. However, take care not to rush her passage and try to keep yourself together. You can do it. Everyone has suffered from the conditions of loved ones, and emerged from grieving not unscathed but alive. At least you're not alone.
I don't really have a lot to say, because I've never had to face the possibility of a member in the family dying. I've had pets die, to whom I was extremely close to. My maternal grandpa was dead years before I was born, the paternal one died before I was old enough to truly care. My other, American grandmother treats her grandkids as tokens when she isn't distantly senile.
I have a question though. Does losing one's memory have to be such an ordeal? I can see why you, your mum, and her loved ones might be affected. But there's no reason why she should be "suffering" for a prolonged period of time, so long as she's taken proper care of and people take care to recognise her disability...
