Starting to talk nonsense

It is less than 13 days to the exams.

I fear that the well-concealed doubts of whether I can pass the exams are now showing up. It seems like that most of the topics of my social conversations with others now revolve around the music practical exams?

Forgive me if I now don't seem to make sense. When you talk to me about the best chocolate in town, I fear that I might stray the topic away and talk about the exams.

This is an after-midnight post. I am not intoxicated. I just don't know how to make any sense.

A few hours ago, I watched the opera The Marriage of Figaro presented by the Singapore Lyric Opera. The casts sang fairly well tonight, in my opinion. The music written by Mozart, played by the Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra also kept me alert and entertained throughout the opera.

My mind felt fairly heavy by Act II. Somehow, there is a particular level of depth to this opera that I could not fully articulate. Behind the humour, the singing and the entertaining music, there seems to be an embedded meaning that is waiting to be deciphered. Yet, I can't seem to make sense now.

Hi Emily, I think there's much depth to the music and opera. It seems to be mocking at a particular class of that society. Very human plot.
