In the midst of stressing over passing (or not passing) my classes I've realized that the time has come for me to take my music more seriously. [I was going to write "take my music stuff more seriously", but if I'm going to take it seriously I should probably stop calling it "music stuff". I guess.]
Sunday night Shelly and I played two new songs of mine and even though we could have used more practice it came out awesome enough that a bunch of different people came up to me and asked me if we have shows and things. So, I guess it's about time we tried that.
I need to discuss this with Shelly properly, and obviously it will take a while to get there, but I'd like to touch up all the songs we've sortof kindof tried to work on together in the past, get this supercool drummer girl who once wanted to drum for us, maybe grab one of the many pianists I know, and basically, eventually, I'd like to have some shows.
This is the absolute worst time to try to do this now that I'm studying and I live far away from everything important but I think it will make me happier than anything. I've learned a lot from all my musician friends about the "right way" to do these things and I probably have enough friends in connected places to make it happen the way I want it. I do have a problem with being too harsh on myself and being generally of the flustered sort, but I think the Subkuch Milega Open Mic has raised my self-esteem enough that I might be able to have a real show without freaking out too much.
I'm looking way too far ahead, I know, I'm just so excited. I haven't felt much of anything positive in a while though, so I'm going to keep this excitement going for as long as I can. Wish me luck.
