My apologies to the what, fifteen or so people that may or may not read this blog, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted anything. I feel like I’ve been rather busy, but upon reflection, I’m not sure how valid that statement is. I’ll try to briefly sum things up, starting withhhhhh…
*I finished off the semester with decent grades. (3.2, two A’s, two B’s and a fucking C in music theory, which I should’ve done a lot better in) Not only that, but I got into the fraternity that I had been pledging for during the semester! I’m really happy to be a part of it, and will even be holding an officer position next semester. Though not a guarantee by any means, I think this will be an amazing opportunity, not only for the networking benefits, but because of all of the great people in it. I’ve already met a multitude of cool folks that I otherwise wouldn’t have.
*Relatively speaking, I’ve been living a lot healthier. Granted, the drinking hasn’t really slowed down too too much, I am working out consistently at least twice a week and am eating a lot less junk and fast food. The fact that I actually get excited about eating vegetables should say something about my prior eating habits.
*All in all, I feel like I’m at a better and more resilient point in my life. Looking back, I think that this might be the longest stretch where I haven’t had any serious issues with depression in…shit I can’t even remember how long. Not to say that there isn’t days where I feel a bit bummy, but between school, working out and just having a solid group of people around me, the future doesn’t seem so hazy. By no means do I expect everything to be sunshine and unicorns shitting out rainbows, but for the first time in a very, very long time, I feel like I’m at a point where I can deal with it. Not that I haven’t always had the tools to do so, I think I’m just in a headspace where I choose to open the tool box.
I apologize, that’s almost too sappy even for my liking, but now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, I can (and need) to start focusing back on this fucking blog. I need to be consistent and I need to do what I originally set out to do with this lil’ shit, tackle music. I spent at least a good five or six hours last night combing through old mix cd’s and others hidden gems in my rustic ol’ cd case, so expect some nostalgic bullshit to be coming on down the line soon.
