Dear Ashleigh

I’ve briefly mentioned before, I used to write all the time. Not write as in like blog writing, but songwriting. I’m not very good at it. I get these crazy ideas, they bottle up inside me and they never go anywhere. It feels like I’m trying to say something but I can’t complete the sentence.

It sounds like the story of my life, but I understand why songwriting is such an art. There’s a beauty to it. Some people get it, some don’t.

As I’m writing this right now, I’m literally pulling my hair out because I’m trying to figure out my point.

For the first time in months, I finally picked up my keyboard. It’s currently sitting on my bed but I was finally playing for the first time in a long time.

So now where do I go from here? Do I keep it to myself? Do I let others know what I’m doing? What thing is for certain- my birthday is coming up and I feel like I’m missing something in my life.

Maybe songwriting can help me figure it out. Don’t believe me- I wrote the lyrics to the song below.

 

 

“Loud Noises”

I feel like lately, I’ve been really busy and working on several projects. But I don’t do well with days off. I try to keep as proactive as I possibly can be. With trying to help buy properties, trying to buy a house, trying to work as much as I can while putting on as many events as I can and also working on a volunteer project for the stray dogs in Nashville. Did I mention my main goal in life is to better myself as a person every day?

Pretty much, a lot of loud noises.

I did go see the Japandroids the other day at Mercy Lounge, not working the show just actually going to it. Last time I saw them was in Milwaukee in 2012/2013 I think. They still got it. The duo is still loud and rocking it out. It was a great show with two guys just jamming out.

I was planning on going to the Foo Fighters but that show was canceled due to a family emergency. But I was told to check out Starcrawler. I didn’t know this, but the Foo Fighters have been bringing them out on shows as their opener. I haven’t seen them live, but I’ve heard good things! If you like modern punk music Starcrawler is something you must check out.

And believe me, I will check them out when I get the chance!
