I’ve been reading through the pages of http://creation.com and have found their articles enlightening and awe inspiring. I remember being a child and learning that God made everything in 7 days – I totally believed it. However, that thought was slowly changed when school introduced me to the theory of evolution. Soon I figured that the interpretation of God’s creation in Genesis is no longer relevant, and how wrong have I been! I am reminded that God “did” as what the Bible teaches. Funny how a site full of great information is now required to remind me of something that I simply believed in when I was a kid. Hope you can check out their site, even if you are not a fan of “Creation” .

As each year unfolds, I always ask – “Is it going to get better?” At times I feel that every year is worse than the last, so I evaluate and then ask: what makes a year “better”? Is it more wealth, is it better relationships, is it security, is it a specific accomplishment, is it (insert anything here) – and the list goes on and on. So what makes each year better? Here’s a lousy answer (or excuse if you’d like to call it that) – that I came up with:
Each year is better simply because we are allowed to experience it. Strip off all the add-ons in life – we find that it’s all about life and being alive, that is probably one of the best lessons Ondoy has taught me. So with that I am thankful to God for continually allowing me to experience life – with all it’s ups and downs, and I am also grateful for the added bonus of experiencing life with the people I love.
Since I have dedicated this blog to music and how it relates to my life – I might as well fill this up with actual music. I’ll be posting demos of songs that I have written, and add in a bit of back story.
Wow, almost forgot about this blog. Now I’m off to a fresh start. Have been saving up ideas both lyrically and musically, and am ready to show the world what I’ve got. But then something came up at work and now I’m bugged with so many things to do – and to think of. >.
Anyway, I’ll be updating my performer profile and be sending em out, and ofcourse auditions – yikes! Wish me luck.
Recently, I’m being bugged down by my red aching eyes. I need to work on a lot of things~! Darn.
Instead of being musically productive, I waste my time watching these animes:
1. Gundam 00 (currently season 2 – twin drives ~~)
2. Macross Frontier (just recently concluded… Sheryl San!!)
3. Naruto Shippuuden (full of fillers… >.<)
Having a “day job” has really worn out my creative juices… It’s not that I can’t create, I simply “cannot find the time” to be creative, or at least that is my excuse. Now that we have moved to a new cozy apartment, I guess it’s time to kick start the thinking and creating process.
Looking at the songs I’ve written, most of em were written when I was in my “single and wanting ex back” phases… it may seem silly but that is how it was, I don’t think I ever wrote anything to a girlfriend until we actually seperated.
Now, I don’t want writing songs to be too emotionally draining and I want to write about other things in life so I need to find a different source of inspiration. Sadly, I guess only by practicing to write random songs, just like I practice my guitar and singing, can I come up with some half decent songs that I eventually just throw out. Where are you oh inspiration? Inspire me in a different way please.
I have to admit though that I rarely spend a serious 100% focused time on songwriting, so maybe I’ll try that, rather than waiting for the guava to fall from it’s tree. So now is the start… I hope!
I’ve always thought of myself as someone destined for greatness, something above and beyond this cycle of life that “regular” people live in, someone that will touch and affect countless lives… Does everyone feel this way? Is this just a foolish phase that I’ve been stuck with since I was young?
