January 01, 2009

Sitting by the computer I’ve uploaded photos onto this page, written in my blog and chatted with my friends via e-mail and other communities online. A lot of time is spent writing, but yet I tell people I hardly ever write... Without really noticing that what I did was, write a lot in my blog this past year.

Since I write online I never realized just how much text I had hoarded, and at the end of 2008 I went through all my entries and I noticed how special it felt. Like... something that was mine.. all mine!! An entity really, but not finished or even close to it...
And the more I thought about it the more I felt like writing and discovering more music, design, edit, and publish it for friends and family and other creative souls out there! Something that was there, that kept memories of days that passed, days filled with music, times spent with friends.

For those of you reading this blog – creating and maintaining an online journal of sorts is a dream I’ve had since I was a kid. I like the opportunity that this blog has offered me. I sure didn’t know how time consuming this task would be when I started. But I forced myself into giving it time and it’s everything I’ve hoped it would be.

A new year is like a new page in a new journal or in this case...a new template.
I decided to give EC a new look for 2009. Please leave a comment below to let me know your thoughts on it.

My mind is jumping around with joy and excitement about the New Year and I think about all the things I want to do like keep fit, blog, take a photo each day, write in my diary and work on my vocals too! But of course a promise about all these things is impossible. My New Year’s Resolutions will be more mellow but hopefully manageable and achievable. Some of them are:

* Do more writing
* Slip in a healthy workout and join an interest group!
* Keep my target on track and continue doing everything I can to get to where I want to be! FOCUS! Focus on what I have to do before I fall into hibernation…
* Surround myself with happiness!

Putting up my favorite track for the year ’08 was kinda hard to do because there are several on that list who I really follow. There's so much out there, it's enough to inspire a bit of an unnerving feeling, but nonetheless, I'm wading through it one band at a time. So I decided to pick the track below. In this post there is going to be some definite back tracking going on. ‘Deep inside of you’ wasn’t produced or released in 2008 but it’s one of those songs that definitely gets me all weak in the knees.
This track by Third Eye Blind is backed by low beats and just kind of spreads out. I love this band greatly, so go ahead and do give them a listen.

One year has passed and now one full year ahead with 365 days just for us to make something out of. Take care and Happy New Year to all of us!
