another life update

I am gradually finding a balance outside of my work hours between doodling and and composing/practicing guitar/recording. I could do with a loose but still useful guitar practice routine. Maybe sometime I'll get a replacement laptop and be able to share some of this stuff. also this song that I lov…

really late summer is my least favorite time of year probably due to some bad memories, but I guess what I'm saying is that it's the time of year that I dump tons of cash on more records to help me forget I don't have any sex friends http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bx0EIO2gEKA
