Look at me attempting consistancy and all that jazz...

I love my work, for MANY reasons, I love being able to make a difference I can actually see, I love that there are clients that are also friends, I love that I can speak nerdy and it be about something other than fiction, and I LOVE that I spend my day listening to music.

I am a failed musician. (lol) I played the cello for a few years, took a break then was politely asked to never touch a cello again when I tried to pick it back up. Next was sporadic guitar lessons (but I never owned one of my own until I was a senior in high school). Years ago (prolly when I was 15 or 16) my mom worked part time in a church office so whenever I would go visit her I would go to town on the drums there, but I am the stereotypical white gal with no rhythm so that was more stress relief versus actual music. Also, at one point I sang in the church, but really, they'll let anyone who asks do that so I'm not quite sure if I was any good at that.. My one musical success? I can play Hot Cross Buns on ::almost:: any instrument.  I finally gave up PLAYING the instruments and just surrounded myself with actually talented musicians. Soothes the soul without damaging the ears. ;)

At one point I would classify myself as a fan of all except "country and rap", BUT Jimmy Buffet walks that line of country/rock and he's a personal favorite, and since my bestie has taken up the challenge of teaching me non-ballroom style dancing (which I slightly don't suck at), I have grown a tolerance to the rap genre. I am still very loyal to the 80's/90's punk rock/ska scene, but I like to think I've evolved a bit. My absolute favorite type of music? Wordless. (Kinda perfect for what I do huh?) I love listening to music that can tell a story without needing a singer, that music is the most powerful to me.

Because of that, for work I have handpicked 4 cds (I am fighting the digital era, but that's a whole different topic) out of a series called Musical Massage that I can listen to for months at a time without the need to change. Heck, I had "Balance" on for close to a year until one of my staffers changed it out on me. They are so well done that I have had regulars ask me if they're listening to a new one when it's not. Those cds are special, because they are made to take your mind where it needs to be, to get whatever thoughts you need thought and still maintain the calm.

I've been feeling really antsy lately, and my brain just REFUSES to shut off, so I've been reading approximately 400-800 pages a day on my ereader of choice, but that's just not doing it.. I'm thinking about stealing one of Aydan's Rock a Bye Baby cds and zoning out one night just to try to get my dome straight. It's too late for that tonight, since everyone else is already sawing logs, but that's why I'm typing this out instead. :) If I wasn't so lazy I might take up running, but that involves 2 things I hate more than anything, socks. (One for each foot) I am going roller skating tomorrow night for the first time since summer hit and since I don't have a day to day relationship with socks I'm going to take this as my cue to stop typing and go find a pair...

Au revior!

A Little Blasphemy as a Literal (and Figurative) Sign of Progress

 Hello there, it’s been a while, and in true returning from ghosting fashion, I am here to either share something vapid and meaningless, or ...
