I haven’t written much anything in a while. For some reason my anxiety had found it’s way even to my own presumed safe-haven (writing). However, today I was hit with a refreshing bout of urgency to write, and wrote my fucking ass off. I finally flushed out a song that had been swirling around my head for the last few weeks and it got me thinking about where I stand concerning one of my New Year’s Resolutions: to finish and record an EP. I’ve been writing and playing music for well over 6 years now, and I promised myself this year I would create a cohesive album. It’s nearing halfway through the year but I’m not defeated just yet.
Speaking of things I haven’t done in a while, tonight I went on a much needed run. It was one of those lungs-on-fire, legs-about-to-give-out, “oh-my-fucking-god-am-I-about-to-die?” runs, and it felt amazing. I forgot how much I LOVE feeling like that. Halfway through my run, I had to remind myself that it was only going to hurt for 15 more minutes, and that I wasn’t going to die, and that my goal is in a realistic reach. I’ve let my body slip over the past year and a half, and though my diet is better than ever, I need to keep my body strong. I’ve ditched any specific weight number goals and instead have opted for 3 physical feats that I intend to reach by the end of summer. I won’t tell all of them, but one is to finally be able to do a pull-up, WITH EASE.
Anyways, I’m glad to be back.
