I had a pleasant session (hahaha! ok, sorry I should say class but.. a session sounds so cool. You know, like a jam session? Get it? No? Ok, nevermind) this past Thursday. Now I have to learn the starting notes to Smoke on the Water.
When the first phrase of the blog post already contains a parenthesis, you know the post is not going to make any sense whatsoever.
I must say I want to thank my friend whom warned me in chat that my previous post was not-ready-for-prime-time-ish. That’s the risk you get when you write draft after draft and publish ahead of time. It wasn’t meant to sound depressing but it did. I go through rough spots like everybody else but a blog post about it might sound like I want to remain there, which is far from the case. The guitar is really having more than just a musical impact and I can’t believe I didn’t ever consider it earlier. Music itself is very good tonic for the soul, and although I am mostly loving the sea of music that comes from my ipod the little drops I get from playing a few notes right (one out of ten) are like liquid sunshine.
The weekend was not laid back as I though it would be. Saturday was good day to rewire my network. I moved my provider’s cable over to the other side of my appartment to give the mac mini the wired access. It increases the performance notably. I also purchased a wifi card for the desktop, which I managed to get enabled and working in the Linux machine, whistling and all. The mac mini got more love as I also purchased a webcam for it.
I reconnected with a lot of friends this weekend too 🙂 We watched the hockey game and had beer and pizza. It was a lot of fun and I was really enjoying myself. I left before midnight though, food and beer took me out quite early. I can’t do late nights anymore.
The next day I did my laundry and then hit the gym. I had a message from my friend, whom also I have reconnected recently. She’s a riot and we’re getting along great. We were stuck in a neverending breakup cycle that we seem to have broken. She was helping me with my window shopping for the trendy trenchcoat (haven’t found it yet, it’s a life quest) and we kept cracking jokes. The movie was nice enough for what it was, a teenage movie with some light vampire / werewolf mythos thrown in. It was fun to watch with my friend as we were of the same mind, making fun of the over-the-top scenes (girl gets a cut, boy removes shirt, logical huh? yeah right!). But overall it was a good light fun movie to watch. I’m not going to read the books, but I will see the next movie hopefully with the same company 🙂
I settled back at home with popcorn to watch the American Music Awards. There were some highlights, but overall it felt dull. Still a good slow way to finish off a busy weekend.
The subject line is from Owl City’s Fireflies song. It’s a very happy almost overwhelmingly sugary song.
Have a good week everyone.
