One day in my life…
8:18 Woke up – make a cup of tea )from real gray loose leave leaf/ brush teeth
8:25 – Exercise – 6 Pack
8:44 – Studio working on Portland 4/20 concert program order
Interesting compositions. Hope it will be a fun day at Portland
9:35 – eat some cereal
9:45 – Prepare MUS 118 class – took out my old MacAir to see if InDesign is still working.
IsDesign is not working correctly anymore. I am blaming all of this to LCC’s terrible administration work. LCC encouraged me to switch to creative cloud three years ago and now they just told my that I can not use CC in my new computer. This is not helping faculty at all. Well, I decided to edit everything out of PDF format and go from there. No time to blame anyone or argue with anyone at LCC. I need to save my energy/time for something else…
11:45 – Pancake brunch (Thanks Jeff))
12:30 – Call Jennifer for All Wired Up concert (Program order and discuss issues)
01:15 – Jeff made coffee – sit on the deck with girls. They were painting their nails. Nice beautiful sunny day.
01:54 – Back studio work on MUS 118 class preparation again / MUS 447 Prep
02:53 – Break… Jayling was not happy about my AirBook is too slow for her to playing Garage Band on it..Well, hope she will learn being more thankful for everything we can have…
Went down stairs and Jayshing was melting crayons to make a candle…The happiest toddler on the block…
03:10 – Set up Kyma on my Laptop for 420 Portland Concert
Found out that I need a USB-C to Ethernet adapter. Don’t want to wait for another two or three day, so Jayling and I drive to OfficeMax down the hill and spent alsmot 50 dollars to get an adapter and also Cat6 Ethernet cable. Now I am back install/Updates my Kyma and everything on my MacBook Pro. I will need to install the KymaConnect and OSCulator for Wiimote comptroller… I am sure… Probably it will be a full night battle!!
4:30 Drive downhill to Office Max to buy USB-C to Eithernet jungle and also CAT6 cable -3ft. Jayling went with me, I liked her being around me more.
The early coffee made my stomach so uncomfortable for the rest of the day…
6:30 – Surprisingly smooth! I connect everything one by one, and install/upgrade the KYMA 7+. Guess what, Holy Cow… Everything works. Even with a little but adjustment, the Wiimotes are up running. I forgot most of the performance part for “The Lighted Window” , but I am sure I can get it back soon enough.
7:30 – BBQ stake dinner. Another nice family BBQ dinner, We were just talking and chatting about stuff. Stuff,…all of those conversations we may not remember soon later, but when we can not be around with our family anymore, those are the most cherish moments/feelings we wish to have them back…Love the feeling of being around with all my families.
