Welcome to my personal blog. If you don’t know me I’m also the main writer of Ride the Tempo, a music blog that is doing pretty swell. Today I was reminiscing a little about the old blog that got wiped by google in the Google Music Blog Genocide of 2010 back in February of this year. It was an unfocused little thing that talked about everything from life to food and of course mostly music. I love Ride the Tempo, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes I crave to write other things on the side. This is the reason that this little blog was started.
I’ll start with a short synopsis on me. In real life, I’m a student currently attending the Metalworks Institute of Sound and Production for Entertainment Business Management, a step closer to my dream of working in the Entertainment Industry. I went in mostly wanting to work on the music side of things, but now I’m more open to other possibilities. The reasons why will probably be another post in itself so I’ll get back to that later.
For marketing class, we were required to choose a non-entertainment company and present research on their products as well as how they market. I chose Moleskine (pronounced Mol-ah-skeen-ah), the company that makes those sleek black notebooks. The decision was based solely on the fact that I own a ton of these products. I have an obsession with notebooks and I never really thought about why until today. I have a pretty ADD personality. I wish I could handle doing all the things I want to do, but life doesn’t have so much time. Time (and my compulsive shopping behaviour) is the reason I have many notebooks that don’t have a single marking (or very few) in them. I purchase individual ones in hopes one will become a diary, another a story, a book of songs, a cookbook and then none of these things end up happening.
I haven’t thought about it until now, but I am a pretty unfocused person. I want to do everything. I want to work behind the scenes in the music (or entertainment) industry, but I’m also a musician that wants to write. I love art, and miss it so much I have a little doodle blog called mylifeindrawings. Those are just scribbles though, I can create things that would blow your mind, if I had the time. I used to be an amateur photographer. I used to write stories and poems that have won money and prizes. I love to read. I really really want to learn how to cook gourmet food.
Thus, I create this blog in hopes that I can share with you my other passions in one place. I hope also to grow as a blogger in terms of finding the right voice and writing style and have that come through on the music blog. Let the adventure begin.
