Finishing Well

Finishing Well

First off, I’ve never believed in “New Years resolutions” I think they’re silly, a half hearted attempt to convince yourself that this new year isn’t going to result in the same outcome as last year. Generally this outcome being one of disappointment with yourself over something, either the flab is still hanging around, or that project list has more unfinished items than completed items.  So what is it about that 1/1/+1 date that makes people believe they can suddenly be a different person?

Soundman: the incredible invisible job.

This post goes out to all those who smiled knowingly when reading the title of this post.

Life is a interesting thing. Sometimes you think you have a grasp on the events and situations you live in around and through. And other times, you’re stuck, clueless about where to go and what to do next. Right now it’s one of those other times, I’m stuck, sitting here eating a bowl of something from my parents kitchen, in my room in the upstairs of my parents house. in which I live, work and sleep, rent free.

Recently i got a great deal on a acoustic guitar. This is a guitar i had been looking at for a few months and had been saving up money in preparation to get it. So when i found someone selling one that was only five months old at a very fair price. i jumped at it. So when it arrived a couple days later via UPS, and had this crack in the side: You might imagine I was a little disappointed. But in reality I wasn’t, after a quick look over and squeezing the cracks together I realized with a Read more »
