RIGHT! Today I'm going to test something out. I'm going to write here on the blog everything that I'm going to do today. Because when I tell people that I'm going to do something, I am much much more likely to do it. When I say to myself "I'm going to do this..." it's a lot easier to change my mind. If I'm trying to do something that is getting a bit boring, I find it quite easy to say to myself "Actually...you should make a cup of tea...maybe do some washing...and finish this tomorrow. You'll do a better job then..." WRONG. That's just procrastination. Grrr. (Can you hear the motivation/drive in my tone?)
So here goes. These are the things that I'm going to do today:
- Read at least 3 chapters of "Song Means"
- Do some washing (this is not procrastination...I genuinely need clothes...)
- Watch the Lunchtime Concert at Uni
- Find a few copyright free short videos to practise writing music to
- Create storyboards for these videos
- Work on remixing Alex's track
- Drink tea
RIGHT. Off I go...
I'm going to leave you with this track. It's rather lovely I think. And uplifting. :)
I decided that to say I'd read THREE chapters of a Song Means was a very big ask. It's packed with very important things that I need to remember, and after a chapter, my brain is saturated. So I'm going to change that aim to "Read a chapter a day"...
Aside from that, I went to the Lunchtime Concert, my washing is in the machine, and I'm drinking tea...and I'm just about to cook dinner.
After that I'll do my video search! :) Skillz.
