Let’s talk about singing

Do you like to sing (Why or why not?)

Sure, I do, but I’m sad to say I don’t have a good singing voice, I’m tone-deaf. Singing is my way of relieving my stress, when I sing, I forget about my worries. Just this morning, I was singing “I will survive” to help me get over my nervousness for this exam. 

How often do you sing? – always, usually, frequently, rarely, never, sometimes, seldomly. + five times a week, an hour a day…

Well, as a typical Vietnamese I spend my spare time singing, whenever I take a bath, drive my car, or do the dishes, I’m usually humming a song, I would say for at least an hour a day. This is because singing helps me to feel happy. This morning I was singing Eye of Tiger on my way to this exam center.
