A Dream is A Wish Your Heart Makes

I had a musical dream. I was going to sing with a band. The other members were familiar, but now that I try to think about it, I can’t remember who they were. I had to learn the song on the day of the performance itself. I was singing the song, I had the lyrics in my hand while I practiced.

In my dream, I knew this song, but when I woke up I couldn’t even remember the tune. I can’t recall even a line from it! The song was “popular”, but it sounded like an original.

Journals

I’ve never been one to bring a journal along wherever I go. But I thought since I didn’t update my blog all too often this year, it was time I put my life in a journal. My thoughts have been a mess and I need a repository of ideas while I was on the go.

And Then I Sucked Some More

Early this year, I said I’d start updating my blog again. But then reality took over and projects, tasks & responsibilities piled up. And piled up. And piled up.

So that promise never gave fruit. Until today.

Maybe the thing that has hindered me from blogging again was because the site has become too old for me. There were old posts I didn’t want to look back to anymore, and the design. Dear god, the design was no longer working for me.

And so I allowed my whole site to be stagnant. But my life wasn’t.

I Suck

I know, I know… I was gone for a year! Take away the podcasts from last year and I would’ve been gone for more than two years! Ugh. I haven’t posted anything for so long, I can smell the molds in my dashboard. Considering I’m almost always online, I know some of you would wonder why I wasn’t keen about updating my blog. Who do I blame?

Stand By Me

The song has always been one of my old favorites, everyone I know knows it, there have been many cover versions for this song; and hearing it again in this video, with people from the streets –on the streets– performing them, it wow-ed me. I couldn’t help the tears welling up in my eyes during the first time I played the video. Oh gawd, it’s just a video. This Joiz person is such a cry baby.
