Hello my little friend,
It's been a while, and in that while some things have changed- while some have not.
I'm feeling a tad more optimistic about my album, but that's just because I'm forcing myself into that mind set. I haven't physically done anything about it, or toward its creation, but it's spring break, this gives me some time.
I'm so happy that it's Spring. =) As I've said before, I love Summer, and we're just that much closer. It makes me feel peaceful, happy. ^_^ Not that I become a complete pessimist in the Winter, but warm and sunny weather gives me that extra boost of energy.
That's how it feels anyway.
I've started writing again- songs I mean. When I was in that "gotta work on my album!" stage, I completely disregarded everything else. I know that sounds bad. I have to remember to balance things in my life, and I'm working on that. Always am...
Anyway, it's probably one of the reasons I'm in a particularly better mood. I forgot what it does for me. It's really a selfish thing, my music. It's how I vent, well I suppose writing altogether is my way of venting. When I wasn't blogging or writing songs, or anything, I was keeping it all bottled up. I can't take those things for granted. Even if I sit down at the piano and end up writing a really crappy song, it still makes me feel good. It's still what I crave.
This time however, I did not write a crappy song. I wrote a lovely song. :)
This makes me even happier. ;)
I don't have a title for it yet, but I do quite like it. I wrote it on my keyboard, and am getting better with the keys. This is one of the things I want to accomplish in the near future- to keep getting better at piano. I need to keep progressing, and writing songs with it helps me do that.
I bought a new Notebook when I was out one day, (I'm addicted to purchasing cool notebooks when I spot them, even if I never end up writing in them) it's an eco-friendly one, with leaves on the front and back covers. I've been writing in it steadily and so far, out of that writing I've started two new songs. One of which is the piano one I was talking about and one came from jamming on my guitar.
Their both interesting. Different from what I've written in the past- which I love. I like to progress in my writing as well, that's why I'll always be plugging away... I suppose I should take the same approach to producing as well...
It's just, I'm stuck producing Goody Two Shoes and Stay Strong. I have to get by these two songs in order to move forward. One of the problems for me I think, is their so old. I'm not into it. I am however, into writing new songs. Quite frankly their boring me.
How do I bring them back to life?
Well, writing this blog sure made me realize a couple things. It's good to be back again. :) Back to blogging and the blogging community. =]
So here I am, here to stay :]
