Hey Guys! Yes, it’s true….. I’m weird…… I know……
I hope you’re all having an awesome Tuesday and I hope that this week only gets better from here. I don’t really know if I’m going to post this, I just feel like it’s been awhile since I’ve written anything just for myself. On top of that, I don’t really want to start my english essay (and in all honesty I can’t yet, because I haven’t interviewed all the people I need too). But man it’s kind of been a great semester for me so far. I haven’t fallen behind (yet) and I actually had my first story published in a newspaper! It might have been a simple college paper but it still counts! These past three (I think) weeks have been awesome. I absolutely love my journalism classes. The students and staff are all incredibly nice and incredibly patient with me! I find myself wanting to go to school when I wake up (at least on Mondays and Wednesdays). It all makes me very excited for what is yet to come. It kind of goes to show that once you find a major that you really enjoy, then going to school ain’t half bad. If you enjoy your job, then it’s a little easier to get out of bed every morning. the morale of this story, is to find something that you love doing. The only thing I dislike about college now, is that I’m not done with those stupid basics.
On top of being introduced into journalism, I am also teaching my first guitar lessons ever this week, which is awesome. My first lesson was yesterday actually with this cool 12 year old kid. I was a little nervous at first but the lesson went alright and I’m actually kind of looking forward to it next week again! The kid was picking it up fast! It makes me very excited for the future with him. He told me I was a pretty good teacher (I’m serious). I have another lesson tonight, with an old friend of mine. He is looking to play the electric, so I’m gonna have to find something to teach him. Still not 100% sure with how we’re going to start out. With the other kid, he wanted to learn acoustic so we just started out with a few simple chords. With this other guy though, he wants to learn some AC/DC so I guess that’s what I’ll be teaching him. I’ve been playing the guitar for almost 7 years now and even though I’m not the best, I think I’m good enough to teach people.
Then there’s the band
Just Alice, the band that I am in has kind of hit a roadblock this past weekend. It’s nothing major to worry about, we aren’t breaking up, but there is a slight problem. Recording the music on our own without any help is kind of a challenge (especially when we don’t know what we’re doing). We’re going to be putting a hold on the recording process for now, find someone to help us out and then resume. I’m not sure when that will happen but we will let you know as soon as we know. And trust me, the songs are getting better and better everytime we play them. In the meantime, however, this gives us the opportunity to write more songs! That’s the part that I’m really excited about. It looks like this EP might be more than 5 songs after all! Worst case scenario: We aren’t able to release an official EP until around April, maybe even later (sad face). But hey! There is some good news! We are already confirmed for playing at Windfest! We don’t know all of the exact details yet, but we’re set to play! We’re really excited for this, we have a lot of songs to play for you guys.
I just really wanted to type some stuff, whether it was for me or for you guys (I totally wrote it for you guys). That’s my life currently, and you’re all caught up with it. Again, I hope you guys are having a good week. Has anything interesting happened to you recently? By the way sorry I haven’t posted so much, I was really busy the last two weeks, focusing on my newspaper story. Thank you for giving this a read, if you did! Have a great week guys!
