I’m feeling quite removed from the world of WordPress. Definitely have not been writing lately. Looking back over the last month I’ve been pretty busy.
A trip to Boston
A trip to Nag’s Head
My BFF visiting for 5 days.
Went indoor sky diving!
Started a new job.
Yep. That’s where I’ve been. Away and busy!
And it’s nice to be home. It’s nice to have a space to write and relax in.
Whilst wearing a reindeer onesie.
And drinking a VA Beer Co. IPA.
And contemplating the single life.
SO I’m super pumped because I’ve been working on music recording! I have Ableton Live Lite 10 which came with my interface and I’ve been learning how to use it. Cool story; I didn’t know how to use it at all and basically didn’t touch it for over a year. I’ve been praying that God would help me figure it out.
Recently I was reading and hanging at home. And I had a sudden urge to sing and record.
So I set everything up and literally started to use the program.
WAIT don’t leave. Keep reading.
That was it.
I started using it.
Just like that.
I know it was God who enabled me. And this is when you’re like “ight imma head out”.
But God is a god of the impossible. He is more than able to equip us to do the work He has set up for us.
He’s given me a desire in my heart to write and record songs. I’ve had the equipment and the will to do it. And now He’s enabled me to start up.
I’m excited. It’s fun experimenting. Making sounds. Singing and harmonizing and laying down tracks.
I have a friend who made a rap album. It took him 7 years to perfect everything. When I first heard that I questioned him. I questioned his motivation, his methods, his abilities.
Not anymore. Sound engineering is HARD. Especially when starting from scratch.
I’m excited about this new adventure. 🙂
Besides that. Thanksgiving tomorrow.
I’m going to a FRIENDSGIVING. It’s gonna be cute 🙂
My friend is cooking a four-course meal which sounds amazing. Complete with wine pairings from the wine he brought back from France over the weekend.
Life is good. Can’t complain. Went dancing last night and had a BLAST. I also prayed for that too. God is good and Faithful. His name is faithful.
After that short update I must get to work. Lol
Though my client’s surely happy that I’m late 😛
Guys. Take a breather.
Take a breath right now. A deep inhale. And exhale.
Now think about one thing that you enjoyed about today.
Maybe it was your morning cup of coffee.
Maybe it was the sunshine illuminating the autumn leaves.
Maybe it was your running, reliable vehicle.
Maybe it was the thought of the someone who makes your smile.
Maybe it was the hope you were promised that the best is yet to come.
Think about that thing. Thank God for it. He’s the giver of all good gifts.
Remember that among the crazy thanksgiving shenanz. Especially if things get weird with family. Or friends.
