Happy Easter y’all!!
This Easter weekend could not have come upon me soon enough! Talk about exhaustion. My Easter weekend was very eventful. Things happened in a way that I can only explain with the analogy of the snowball effect, and I rolled with it.
The good times began with a studio audition. I pretty much hated how I performed of my song. It was just…bleh. But I got a really good deal and I am so excited and cannot wait to get started. I’ll have more details as the thing unfolds and morphs into Plus I met some really cool people and had a great time afterwards.
Today, I was told that my Achilles heel is avoiding issues. I’m talking about those weird, uncomfortable, touchy issues that have me going against my nature as a woman when I don’t address them. I honestly do not think it’s true. I pick my battles and avoid confrontations. Addressing my issues would cause very many confrontational situations. How do I live like this? Well, you’d be surprised how the brain is capable of repressing memories and thoughts for our well being.
Enjoy the break, guys. I’ll be catching up on school work.
This entire week I’ve been thinking about music. I was bitten by the music bug. I’ve had this immensely strong urge to write a song and sing it. I have to admit, though, writing a song for me does not come as easily as writing a poem. I know a song is technically a poem, but in my head, not really.
I love music and I wish life was a musical. I wish everyone would burst into song for no reason at all. I’ve been listening to Ed Sheeran and Labrinth : talk about inspiration and pressure!! I want to write songs like theirs and play the guitar as well as they do. I really wish that sheer desire was all it took to achieve musical greatness.
So I wrote verse one yesterday (for some reason it took me a great amount of strength to come upon that recollection and somehow, I don’t seem to remember when I did it!!) and finished the rest of it a little while ago. I’m still working on the tune and guitar accompaniment. It’s proving to be tough!!

In other news, I’m happy to announce that earlier this week, I started the book The Tell-Tale Brain that I’d mentioned earlier. I like how things are going.

Before I leave, I make a tribute to love! It’s beautiful, sad, magical and tragic. Check out Thought of You by Ryan Woodward It’s a beautiful blend of music, dance, art and love! It really is worth your time.
