Over the years I have meet many people that show an interest and have a shining talent in creative arts. As time goes on and I catch up with them I seem to get a common reply ” no. I don’t do it anymore “.
I’ve always found it a shame that someone would just give up on something they love doing. But I must admit that I have never experienced anything to stop me from doing what I love until recently.
Sure over time I slowed down the studio time but I did never just throw the towel in. Everyday I get up, look at my equipment and say to myself ” I need to get back on it” but I haven’t now for what must be a year. Damn just writing this makes me feel sad. I must admit that not doing any music has made me feel really miserable.
I know my stuff still works cause I turned it on just last week. My only excuse for not doing anything is life getting in the way. Yes it sucks and you could say it’s a sad excuse and you would be right to say so.
Do what’s my next move? Start making music ASAP and find me a job that do leave me feeling so exhausted all I want to do is sleep on my day off.
Btw I hate my job with a passion.
2014 is here and I would like to wish you all a happy new year, hope you get to achieve all your wishes.
I could tell you that last year, 2013 was not the best year for me, but why bother start the new year on a dark note. Instead let me try to look at the positive side, I survived another year. Things that has happened over the year has given me a nice kick in the butt. After 5 funerals in 1 year, I was not expected and another came quicker than expected it has made me take a good look at how I been using the little time I have. To quote Johnny Osbourne in the 1979 track ‘Truths and Rights’ “Tomorrow is promised to no-one”. I kind of learned the hard way when the boiler thermostat decided to break, created lots of steam what damaged 750GB of music files, a midi controller, a compressor and a pair of studio monitors.
I’m looking to make this year as productive as possible, I keep on getting invited to work on some tracks, my answer has always been “I will soon”, now I plan to follow through and make it happen. Writing this post is me starting the year as I mean to carry on. I need to go shopping for the studio, look out as I will be adding lots of new content on here before long.
