I feel very fortunate these days to be busy with new and prospective jobs, my current jobs, and other events here and there. Sometimes my blog goes on the wayside a little bit because of that, but it’s always on the back of my mind. I’m hoping to produce more outfit posts in the coming weeks, as well as other content.
I was taking voice lessons consistently since last summer, then there was a 2 month hiatus starting the beginning of the year. And yesterday, I finally had my first voice lesson of the year, which was really helpful  and just enjoyable overall. Having studied piano most of my life, I do miss the weekly  music lessons and the feeling of learning something new every week and practicing that until I’m comfortable with my new skills. If there is a skill you are trying to perfect like me, consistency and practice is key! Like my grandma always said, “If you don’t use it, you lose it.”
最近、仕事が少しずつ増えてきて忙しくなってきていますが、とても幸せだなと思っています。そのため、ブログの方はたまに後回しになってしまうことがありますが、常に頭の奥で「やらなきゃ、やらなきゃ!」と自分にリマインドしています。もうちょっといいペースで私服コーデの記事やその他の記事をアップしていきたいですね。
去年の夏から、毎週頑張ってボーカルのレッスンを受けていたんですけど、新年からぴたっと止まってしまって、、そして昨日、やっとレッスンを再開しました。自分のためになるし、やっぱり楽しいです。人生のほとんどピアノをやっていたので、毎週のレッスンがたまに恋しくなります。毎週新しいことを学んで、練習して、新しいスキルが身に付く繰り返し。新しいものを身に付けたい時は、一貫性と練習が大事です!私のアメリカのおばあちゃんの口癖、「使わないと、(スキルは)無くなるよ」を思い出します。

Absolutely loving the look, Samantha. I used to go for weekly music lessons as a violin student, too, but have stopped for over a year now. I'm definitely missing the feeling of learning something new every week, but hey, I'm teaching every week now, so I guess that's a new kind of learning?

Good luck with your music lessons, Samantha! x

I hope you enjoy your new job! I know sometimes, it quite difficult for me to write a blog as often like before due to the work. However, I hope you can manage the time, and enjoy the voice lesson!

I get on the piano once in a while, especailly when life takes over and everything seems too 'important' to handle all at once. Play a few classical pieces and that will seal the deal! Hope you are juggling well Samantha, voice lesson sounds intriguing too and that is a pair of sexy looking socks. x
