So I know I haven’t been super active on here in general, but for the past month I wound up having to get my computer fixed, so didn’t have a ton of access to the computer. I had a really old phone I could do limited stuff on which was a Godsend, and my brother was letting me use his computer here and there for small things. I didn’t want to hog his computer though, so didn’t do toooo much. I remember last year I did an intentional media fast where I just wasn’t going on unless I needed to, and having one forced on me this year honestly was really nice, and something I wasn’t expecting!
At first it bothered me, because I have a lot of projects going on. I have an EP I wanted to post up, a document I was working on and all in all it just was really annoying to have all of that draw to a hault because of my computer deciding to randomly die on me. Plus the anxiety of will my computer work again? Really made me discouraged.
But luckily, my family helped me and having a PS4 to play on really helped my stress levels stay to a minium. And also luckily, I didn’t have to replace my computer! Just had to get a new charging cord, as per usual. So now I’m back in business!
I luckily didn’t have too much of a backlog, but I’m working on stuff right now. Like I just posted said album release that is in the process of being sent to stores, and working on setting up a mixing commissions document to post, and start opening up commissions for audio mixing services. I’ll be sure to post both on here when they’re done, very excited for this new chapter: I’ve never tried charging for audio mixing services, so I’m a little nervous about doing that. But nothing ventured, nothing gained, right? We’ll see what opportunities come just by putting that out there.
But yeah, I’m back, and very happy about it! I’ve been working on a new set of original songs, and all in all I’m happy I got a forced media fast. It’s nice to recharge your batteries and just disconnect from the internet. I think doing so is what got my inspiration to rework and retool this one original song I didn’t put on A Warrior’s Heart, and turn it into a full on concept for another EP that tells a story. I’ve been super churning out ideas and lyrics for that one, and I feel like I wouldn’t have decided to just nix the idea I had for the 1st song that inspired the EP originally if not for my lack of YouTubes and the like. Always a good idea to take a break and refocus yourself, and having to do that is something I wouldn’t have done if my computer didn’t die for a bit.
And that’s all for me now. I’ll update when my album is out. Hope everyone is doing well!
