Right Now Is What’s Important
What you’ve done has no bearing on what you’re doing now other than being the foundation to which you’re building on. These are the lessons I’m learning…I really love my job. Some days it’s scary, and often difficult when faced with new tasks, but I find a lot of fulfillment in it and personal growth. It forces me to take calculated risks, think at different levels, and opens my eyes to my potential more with each passing day.
Today’s risk only really affects my pocket book: internet from my cell phone provider. I’ve taken a lot of financial risks with this new job. The $1800 computer was the biggest one, and I’m sure the internet situation isn’t going to come cheap, but it’s necessary. I’m sick of not getting much work done while on the road, and with being gone a month this time around, I’ve been forced to make a decision, so I’m making a trip to the Sprint store today. Still gotta buy strings for my bass too. Probably two sets, just in case. My current strings are starting to get caked in blood along the body. Looking forward to the day that spot on my finger becomes a permanent callous. 🙂
Life is good, I’m going into my 6th month of working for End Of The Light Records, and so far no one has ripped me a new asshole, and I get a lot of constructive criticism and encouragement. It’s nice to work for a company that values my opinion while helping to mold me into a stronger voice within’ the music world.
So many plans are in the works now on so many different levels; Zebrana Basatard, SHiT, End Of The Light…and I’m smiling through it all, even when it gets difficult.
Can’t wait to start screen printing shirts this week. Always my favorite part of everything within the world of a DIY musician. There’s something about assembly line work that I just love. I always feel super zen out here in the process of it all. Working towards a day where life can be this way all the time. My next home will be a warehouse for sure. 🙂
This is my song of the day, I can’t get it out of my head. Makes me wish I had all my music on my work station. Very thankful for YouTube a lot of days.
