Day 4

It's been quite awhile since I've been on here and added a new post, but I decided that I needed to keep it going.

Lately I have felt like I am under an intense amount of pressure and stress. Enrolling for the next semester of college, working two jobs with a combined 60 hours a week, and trying to keep my band going has killed me (thankfully not literally...yet).

But, at the same time I can't complain when it comes to being happy. Even with all of this stress weighing me down, I still have a smile on my face. I find time somewhere to go for a run or play around with my guitar. I find the time after work at night to spend time with my special girl or hang out with my friends and see my family.

Those are the moments that I treasure the most and those are the moments that get me through all of the stress and lift the weight off of my shoulders, so that I can get to it all over again with a smile.

Day 3

Over the past few weeks I have really been asking myself who I am as a person. What am I supposed to be doing in life, you know? I believe that everyone has one purpose in life. However, their purpose is decided by what road they choose to take in life.

A couple weeks ago I was completely let down by something that happened to my band and myself. I thought that we were going to finally get our shot to show the world not only what we were made of, but to show the world how much playing music really means to us. Long story short we were passed up on this chance unfortunately. The chance was going to be given to us through a competition that we did not win. I was completely crushed. I started asking myself how talented I really was, and how talented I THOUGHT I was. I began to question my priorities. I started worrying about what would happen if my passion didn't become my purpose. I almost gave up on my dream. That was until I listened to one of my band's own songs written by my best friend.

"When all that matters is the time right now, Forget tomorrow, just Live for now"

These immortal words are lyrics from the chorus of one of the very songs that I play. These words were written by my best friend when I was worried about my future, after I learned that he was going to be moving halfway across the country. This was the first time that I questioned myself and he helped me out of it. After hearing this song again, it reminded me that no matter what kind of obsticals I face in life, I should never worry about what is to become of me, when I should be focusing on right here and right now. A new hope was given to me by my best friend Nathan from halfway across our nation, through music. This is how I decided that no matter what, Music is my passion, Music is my life, and Playing music is my Purpose.

Thanks Nate, I love you man.

Day 2

Everyone loves to start off a day with a laugh. This morning as I joined a new fan group on FaceBook.com I got my first laugh of the day and I decided that I thought it was funny enough to share it with you. Being a college student myself, I thought this was exceptionally humorous because it reminded me of something that I would do. This story that I read on the FaceBook.com fan page, is about a college chemistry student who answered a question that was proposed by their proffessor, on whether they thought that Hell was endothermic (Absorbs Heat) or exothermic (Asorbs Heat).

To view this just click on the link that I have posted here and then click Info on the tab on the fan page to read this funny story:

Day 1

Today is my first day of my daily blogging that I plan on continuing, mostly to get stuff off of my chest. In my daily blog I will open my mind and heart to you, the readers. If you have ever wanted insight on how my mind works, or are just interested in me, this is the place to get both of those things.

Today I decided something about relationships. With every failed relationship there is this sense of melancholy that comes with it. At times, we tend to feel as if the person from the failed relationship could've been "the one". We tend to long for that person when we are alone late at night or when we don't have anything to occupy our time. Well I leave you with one thought on this day.

Everytime I've had a failed relationship in the past, I have felt all of this. Recently, my now ex-girlfriend and I, broke up. Honestly, I miss her alot. Late at night I do think about her. Yet, if I think about it, my failed relationship with another girl a year ago, or even another failed relationship with a different girl from months ago felt the exact same way.

The point I'm trying to make, is that with every failed relationship that I have had, I begin to realize more and more is that there is no use mourning over a past relationship, because in a year or in a month, when we meet someone new, we are going to forget about the last person, and start our new "failed relationship".
