I planned to go home last night and put together study notes for next week's exam. As I was about to open the textbook, I looked wistfully at my "studio" PC.
A handfull of button-pushes, 2 minutes of setup, and I was recording. I got the vocal tracks to five songs recorded last night. FIVE!!! Everything just seemed to align, and I accomplished in 5 hours more than I had been attempting in the previous 20. I guess that's the art: persevering through the 20 hours of failure to grasp the 5 hours of success.

Tonight I really DO have to get to the study notes….
Tomorrow Wife and I are headed to Mississauga for a Christmas party, and then Sunday is another party with the extended inlaws. Sunday's will also require bringing my guitar, bongos, and simple percussion for the carols. Ugh. I don't even know the words to Xmas music, let alone the melodies and chord structures…

Still, the week is starting to look up. It IS Friday, isn't it?

  1. You don't know the words to Christmas Music? Wow! You're a lucky bastard!

    I like that you prioritized the fun stuff by accident. Good on you. Life's too short.
