I just ate a big bowl of cherries and I feel wonderful. Like I can accomplish anything (we'll see what happens when the fruit sugar wears off though...hahaha). Regardless though, this feeling is so important for achievement in my opinion. If you aren't motivated, or inspired, nothing is going to happen. So eat fruit. (I think that's my point?)
I put up a youtube vid about a month ago of myself covering Metric's 'Eclipse - All Yours' song from the soundtrack of the newest installment of the Twilight Saga. I wasn't really expecting anything to come of it - and honestly, nothing really has. BUT. It's already up to 80,000 hits with all positive comments which is pretty freaking amazing. If you haven't seen it, you can check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=um6iuwUfEAE
I've also been playing a lot of gigs lately that involve my snare drum and I. Now all I have to learn is the kick drum, cymbals, high hat and tom-tom. Perfect. :)
Diddy of the Day: One time I was walking down the stairs to my basement with a searing cup of hot chocolate in my hand. As I descended, the banister on the wall broke in one place and went up like a teeter totter. I fell all the way down the stairs on my bum and when I got to the bottom, I looked up, and the hot chocolate from my cup came cascading down upon me. I don't remember if it hurt or not....
Fact: I am very clumsy.
Fiction: You can outgrow being clumsy. (I am living proof that this is a fallacy).
