So much has changed, I'm not even sure I'm doing this journal right. Thank you all so much for the supportive messages and such that I received during my long absence, it really means a ton to know you have people caring and thinking of you no matter how far you are in body - I'm so very honored to know you all.
But yeah, while I'm sorry to disappoint the messengers asking if I'm dead
, I'm still here. Had some pretty chaotic life things going on over the last three+ months including living out of 6 different homes, apartment couches, and a car and moving and concerts (both playing and attending), and working a job as a camp counselor , and finally my current predicament of job search and truly joining the ranks of the real world. It's been a bit crazy and hectic, but also refreshing to not know what the next day might bring and exciting to live in the present and let the future be future and come to me when it is ready to do so.
Now that I'm officially job searching though, I'd have to hope it comes sooner rather than later before I grow a beard and invest in cardboard.
But yeah, elated to have consistent internet and the opportunity to come back here. I still have a lot to do, I definitely left way too many people in the dark about my absence, including myself - I was delusional at the beginning about the time I would have for sure - but yeah, I'm really sorry to all of you all for disappearing like that. And to some who I know I can never make it up to, hopefully we'll get in contact and talk soon and get reconnected and whatnot, yeah?
In other news, my most recent band had a live E.P. recorded by some friends of ours which can be found, listened to, freely obtained here: wakeleviathan.bandcamp.com/
(it is metal music (and a fairly esoteric metal music at that), so take that and your musical preferences into consideration). I wrote near all the music for the project and sing all of the clean vocals that you won't really be able to make out even if you strain (because it's a live recording and if I had to describe our live music in one word it would be ear-destroyingly-loud). ^_^
It was an honor to play with the people I did and the bands we did and the venues, public and private, that we played at, so yeah. Super fun. Hopefully we'll have pictures or some such things for people so you can see what I looked like before I got all my hair chopped off so that I could start pretending to be a normal person long enough to con someone into hiring me.
Next music project on the table currently, I want to make something shoegazzy with lots of reverb and sound. Hopefully I'll find a singing lass to put some vocals to some ambient-y stuff I'm composing and try to write a small E.P. or something.
Other than that, this is my first significant time back home in Atlanta in three years, so I'm just trying to catch up with family and friends and use this time I've been blessed with at least semi-constructively and whatnot. Life is good.
But yeah, how is everyone? If you manage to make it this far, let me know by letting me know something exciting you're looking forward to in your life - whether it be in a joyous or an apprehensive way - or anything you might just want to talk about. I'm all ears until I get fully-employed (maybe forever!) so take advantage of me, I'd love to help any way I can.
Keep on rockin' in the free world!
Love & Peace,
