I'm Alive.

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Well I'm here. On Blogger. For the first time in weeks... maybe months. March is crazy for my family and add moving on top of that, Blogger is NOT a priority (but Bubble Shooter is...).

But yes, I am still alive.

Like I was saying, it's been a crazy couple of weeks. NCAA Tourney, dance, moving, end of 3rd term... definitely been super stressed. But I've also been really happy for the past couple of weeks. And I owe that to my best friends. Some of them don't even read this blog, but some do... so thank you. You know who you are. :)
I've also been focusing a lot on music lately. I haven't mentioned it a lot in my blog but I loooove to sing. It's what keeps me going and it's my sanity. When everything's going wrong, I have my piano, my guitar, and my voice. They're my best friends whenever I'm home. I sit for hours and just sing... I'm real surprised my voice doesn't go away every night. I used to write music a lot in 8th grade... but then again, I was in denial so I needed to do SOMETHING to keep me sane :) But I've been writing a lot again lately and it's been good for me. At first I was a little rusty, whipping out the classic "rain, pain" rhymes that Hannah Montana uses. But after a while, I got the hang of it again. And I realized something about writing that I absolutely LOVE. It makes you an individual... and most of all,

There's never a wrong way to do it.

  Yes, there's some songs like Rebecca Black's 'Friday' that are a disgrace to musicians and lyricists everywhere. "We we we so excited" Really? Like what the crap... But still, she's not doing it WRONG. Just different. Cause if you think about it, there's not a wrong way to write. There's different styles and ways and formats- but there's never a song that isn't correct. Lately I've been super hard on myself with the way I do things. I never do anything right and I never make the right decisions. So in my writing I've been really excited to figure out that I am NOT doing it wrong! I'm just being an individual and expressing myself.

Welp I'm done here. I'll post tomorrow...

Pinky promise.
