Holy crap. I am having one of those crisis days.
I was looking at the liner notes for In Need of Medical Attention
today and I realized that Joel started recording his FIRST SOLO ALBUM when he was 21. TWENTY FREAKIN' ONE. And he had already put out 2 LPs and 2 EPs. Crikey.
And I'm hearing about these people... friends of friends and such who have started magazines, or have art shows, AND make music videos and have semi-succesful indie acts of their own AND probably have gone to fuckin' outer space and they're all under THIRTY.
I am almost 21. I want to be in a good place when I'm thirty. To have accomplished SOMETHING... even if it's just for myself.
I'm sure you know the feeling... it's scary.
So far.... 6/10
So the last few days home have been ok.
I played guitar for a few hours both Sunday and Monday, and I read a decent... well ok sized chunk of The Diviners
. Playing guitar was really good! It felt good... I'm really not that good, but I can feel myself getting better as I play (I'm sure that's just psychological) and it makes me want to play more.
I wrote a song yesterday. I think it's already been written, but I still felt good about that. And I busted out theory exercises from high school!
I'm hoping to keep this going for at least a few more days. I have to go to Value Village and alter some clothes... FABRIC PAINT! And maybe get a canvas, and do some painting! This is exciting.
Oh wait. I am the only member.
Well that blows.
I have nothing to say yet because 'accomplishing shit' has yet to be added to my schedule. When it is however... I'll post some shit about the shit I accomplish.
