Wow… been a while since I’ve done a blog post. Figure I’d update here to see who actually may read these rather than a boring Facebook post. Lol
For those who don’t know… a couple weeks back I finally got to cross something off my bucket list. Perform and rap “Jesus Freak” by dc talk. Also did it while playing guitar. To me this was awesome, but I’ve also been singing this song since it came out and playing this song on guitar for add long add I’ve been able to play. So it was no big deal to me. Kinda like singing the ABC’s or “Happy Birthday”. But the response I’ve received from this had blown my mind. Even my wife was surprised I guess.
I’m not writing this or bringing it up for accolades. I was just honored to be able to share it with others and happy people actually enjoyed it. So with that… I decided it’s about time to get back on the writing wagon again. I haven’t written music since high school and the band I was with at the time… We maybe did one or two songs if written and they were probably terrible. Lol.
I now have my own little studio. Nothing super fancy, but in this digital day in age where you can now track instruments with an iPhone or an iPad… It’s becoming easier at least. I was going to try to wait on this drum pedal called the beat buddy.. But don’t see that happening now. So I’m going to use digital samples for now. But hopefully… If my hands can hold it together… I may have something tracked this week. If not… at least some lyrics down. Don’t know if I’ll sing or not, but if I don’t… I’ll be looking for someone.
So yeah… that’s my long post about music. There is a chance I may not get to as well. Kids start school this week. Evan will now be in 6th grade and my baby girl will be going to kindergarten. Man… Time is just flying by. I’m just glad I get to spend my time with these two great kids. They are my life. Good blessed me more than anything with these two.
Jess started a new job a month or so back and she is just so happy with it. She is now working for an insurance company. Calling clients who recently were in the hospital to Sr if they need anything else. No more nursing which is sad… But she couldn’t advance anymore where she was at… and like teachers… She was being very underpaid. This job was a huge jump and I’m so proud of her for that. Just last Thursday we celebrated or 10th anniversary. 10 years she had put up with me… and she is sticking with me even with everything that’s going on. I’m a lucky husband. I couldn’t ask for a better companion.
So that’s my blog post. Kinda making an update in life in general. Church is going great. Playing guitar there obviously… But trying my best to help out as much as I can because I believe in that place and what God is doing there. That’s the important thing. So there you have it… If you read this entire thing… you deserve a cookie…..
