"... it's people like you, musicians, who make this black and white world colorful."
I never thought someone would ever say such a thing to this out-of-practice musician. I almost cried there on the spot. If just one appreciates what I do, I'll never stop.
There I was, in a home of someone I didn't know, yet she in her old age came from a door and greeted my as if we had been long time friends. I greeted her as she did me. That day she had decided to show me a new antiquity she'd aquired. A beautiful broze lamp that showed it's age graciously, and that wasn't the part that mattered.
So I finally decided to watch the new My Little Pony cartoon. It's pretty neat, can't believe there's this huge fandom and all these conventions the fans setup. I think it'd be sort of fun to go to something like that, it's one hell of a pop culture phenomena. Anyway, crazy things, crazy things that one tries to parse.
This journal will be mostly a rant... Well founded I say, so lets begin. I can't stand people who think a Classical or "nylon string" guitar can be strung with steel strings. Whoever does this is either uninformed or reckless. It compromises the integrity of the; tuners, nut, frets, bridge and saddle. Not to mention it will sound like a dying animal when played.
I'm not sure how I feel about everything that's happend this week. But from what I can tell is that this must be the smoothest week I've had in a few months. Nothing big or insane happened but nothing bland or dull either. Should it be left up to me, yes I'm quite content. However one will always be slightly non.
Things will probably be the same on the outside yet on the inside there is doubt and concern. Unfounded? perhaps, but it is also not out of the realm of possibility that there be founded doubt and concern. One's thoughts can keep one awake at night. Anxiety, stress, concern, lonelyness, struggle, wants, needs... All can keep one from sleep.
As titles suggests, yes assume it. Hanging out with friends is nice, and no classes for a week is cool. I find myself occupied with too much time, and even studying has become fun for me. Nothing wrong with that per se, just never thought I'd look forward to it as much as I do in this current part of living.
Nothing's really new, almost as if things never change, however that's not true since everything has it's subtle changes. It's been quite the interesting time in my life, what with friends and chaotic events popping up hither and thither. All in all pretty good, all the ups and downs to be expected, all adds to experience and character.
There are no titles so it's like a surprise!
It is inevitable that things change, it's nothing that can be stopped. I for one find it very interesting how that empty old shop on the corner was remodeled into a restaurant that only lasted 3 months. It's now an empty old restaurant. It's the subtle changes that make us realize we are getting older.
I've been juggling a few things lately. Perhaps it's stress or maybe unresolved issues that I've been putting off their being dealt with. In fact it's the things around me that affect me the most when I observe the things that do go on in everyday life as it is around here for me and my family, or what's left of it.
Busy semester is busy. Aside from that I dropped a class, my sister moved out, got a few new threads and not much else. So here I skip to some discrepancies I've noticed. Although not about here or any place in particular but bullcrap is bullcrap and I have no idea why I always witness the oddest things.
Yeah I feel bad about not writing here for a while. I've been swamped with homework from my classes since I got some kind of viral infection. But I'm fine now, just playing catch-up. Everything's going pretty good considering all things for now. Again, sorry I haven't been keeping up with all of you. I'll probably pop in tomorrow.
My sister described in two words. She's moving out Wednesday though, so that makes me feel better. :-)
