One of the things he loves about being in a band is the tours. He loves that he and his band can do what they are passionate about which is their music and can also do something they’ve always wanted to do which is travel. They get everything delivered to the place where they will do their gigs, including the affordable ibanez amplifier that they are very particular with. And then they just go there to explore the place a bit and then perform at the day and time designated.
Oh, how he loves touring!
I remember a story that my mom told me when I was younger. It was about a man who picked up a small pouch which he thought to be just garbage. He opened it to give to his daughter and guess what? They had the surprise of their lives! The small pouch actually contained loose diamonds in it. They felt guilty getting the diamonds so they waited for someone to claim it as their own. But nobody came forward.
The family used the loose diamonds to make their lives better. They sold each diamond as the need arose and kept the remaining for the future. It was a fascinating story and one that my mom said was an inspiration to those who have heard it.
I am getting the cute little girl a digital recorder. She loves singing her heart out and recording it! She likes listening to her voice again and again. She gets a kick out of it and it’s too cute and funny.
So while I was talking to my two sisters about it, I decided to get her a recorder that she can use for when she’s belting out one song after another. Sometimes she’d sing softly like when she’s already in the bedroom and she knows I don’t like noise when in there. She’d whisper her songs. But when she’s in the living room or outside the house, I swear she’d give Celine Dion a run for her money!
Music keeps her sane. If not for the music blasting through the headphones that her older sister got for her, she would go crazy from the chaos and tension in the company she’s working for.
Her sister is telling her to resign as soon as possible. But she’s one person who can’t leave anything unfinished. Since she wants the project she’s handling done before she tenders her resignation, she makes sure she has music playing just to be able to get through eight hours of work.
After the project, she will resign right away! The chaos and tension are not worth the money she’s earning.
Kyle will always be grateful to his father for making music a part of their daily lives. His father gave him a complete dj mixing set and he was able to use it while in university, paying for his own tuition fees. He is being invited in different parties around the university and he’s earning from all the gigs.
He told his closest friends that for the income he’s earning from the gigs alone, music will always be a part of his life. He can fall back on it when being a doctor no longer appeals to him.
In a few minutes, I will be off to go to bed. I am already sleepy. My mind is already exhausted from the day’s work. I long for the heated mattress in my room. It is a bit cold these days and I want a warm bed waiting for me. Actually, a hot choco will be better but I am too lazy now to mix one for me.
Sigh. I long for those days when my mom would ask me what I wanted and she would whip it up easily. A house is never the same without the mother in it. It’s been a couple of years now but I still miss her.
Miranda called up Hector, her ex-boyfriend, to get some tips on how to save on guitar recording software. She is helping out her current boyfriend set up a music studio and he needs all the help he can get in saving up. The cost of the studio has gone sky high now and Miranda is worried her boyfriend will get himself bankrupt even before opening up his business.
Hector is a very kind man. He and Miranda became friends months after they broke up. They really call each other from time to time to ask for help and since Hector is into selling music-related stuff, he’s the first one Miranda turned to when her current boyfriend already asked for help.
There are days when I yearn to let go, really let go, and live! Like be wild for a day or two. Or take a big risk without worrying about the consequences. Or just go at the drop of a hat!
But I am not that kind of person. Sometimes I wish I am so I can throw inhibitions to the wind and be carefree for once.
