About Music

Over the past weeks I had a lot of things to write about (and I still have) there is simply a lot going on in my life right now and I love it. My life was never this interesting but I’ll talk about everything on another blog(s)… maybe… I hope ^^.

Anyway music, I absolutely love it, I love everything about it and always think about it, I love all forms of art, I really do but music is special.

I was born into a musicians family, the family business was music, church music (for the most part). So when I was a kid a was taught how to play a few songs on the piano. I don’t remember it being fun I just kinda went with the flow since I wanted to get it out of the way. At the time I wanted to do other things (I just wanted to play Diablo 2 on the nearest internet café, since we didn’t have any computers back home ^^’).

Nowadays I regret not taking my lessons seriously, but I also understand why. I was taught to play what I saw on a music sheet. I wasn’t taught the freedom, the happiness, the universal language, I wasn’t taught real music. Because that’s what music means to me now, it’s the greatest form of freedom.

Everytime I listen to Chopin or a new Dubstep song, or that new hit on the radio I get all dreamy and think about the happiness these people must have felt when writing this songs, and I think about melodies of my own and I wish I could write them down , but it’s like I’m in a cage. I simply don’t have the skill to make my own music, at least not yet, but I try anyway, and I’ll get better and hopefully, someday that special person will like the song I wrote for her.

to be continued ;)…

First Blog

So I’ve been meaning to write a Blog since, well… forever and don’t really know how to start, so I’ll just start writing and dedicate this first post to the good start I had to my day today

A Good Start

Today was a good day, a very good one in fact, today is one of those days I might even remember for the rest of my life, but it isn’t because I won something or because I finally reached a goal or met someone special… none of that happened.

What made today special is that I just really lived for one day, I didn’t wasted my time, I moved forward.

I did the things I really wanted to do instead of the things I’d normally do like sleeping ’till 16o’clock, finally waking up on the 11th try and then mindlessly killing time on the net until I realize it’s already dark outside and I should probably eat something and then go to sleep after the next one or two chapters of that new series on netflix.

Today I woke up I opened my curtains and saw that it was a beautiful day, so I brushed my teeth wore a t-shirt, I’m not very found of, my horrible looking sweatpants and then I just went out for a jog.

I didn’t think about taking a bottle of water, or planing a route or anything for that matter. I know myself and I knew if I started overthinking it I just wouldn’t make it out of the house the same day so I just didn’t and it was the best thing I could have done, that would be the start of a great day.

I didn’t really know my neighborhood, so I thought this was my chance to explore it and daaaamn!!! I was moved by it. All these beautiful places just a few hundred meters away from my doorstep. They made me wanna see more, what else had I been missing on? where do all these roads will take me? I was having genuinely fun and that while looking pretty bad and being alone, so much so that I didn’t realize how tired I was xD.

Luckily for me there was a grocery nearby, so I used whatever energy I had left, got there and replenished my energy reserves with an awful tasting apple juice kind of drink and some cookies ^^.

These are some pics I took while jogging, beautiful, aren’t they ;)?

With my enery replenished I got back home took a shower and felt like I should keep the momentum going and do more things I’ve been wanting to do, I felt really free and alive and so I did.

I went to the post office and sent off the letters I had to.

While on the way I bought my first (and maybe last) CocaCola Life. I’d been wanting to try it. It really wasn’t anything special :/

ColaLife.

I decided I would eat a fish dish at least once a week so I bought and cooked fish for the first time in months.

I paid rent for the last two months ^^’.

I took care of a problem I’ve been having with my cable provider.

I washed my clothes, cleaned my room, kitchen and bathroom.

As a reward to myself for being productive I went to a library looked for a book that seemed really interesting and bought it.

Book 1.

And last but not least I wrote my first blog.

So yeah today was a fantastic day,  I had no social interaction whatsoever and nothing special happened but I had a Blast and was happy throughout. It makes me wonder where I’d be if I used half or even one tenth of my free days like this ^^.
