So burned out lately. Working seven days a week since probably September, but even more so, now… more lessons, more back-to-back students, less time to decompress. I’m typing this during a gap between my lessons. Just don’t know exactly what to do with my brain.
I’m feeling optimistic, but also just so tired/exhausted.
I’m so damn behind on these mixtapes for strangers. I have like 300 to make, still. I’m doing my best, and I appreciate the patience of anyone who has subscribed to my weekly newsletter, waiting for one. Hang tight. Thank you so much for your interest and patience, people. I hope you all like the ones I made you, so far.
Been watching various movies on cable (as I always do)… the winners the past few weeks are 8 Mile (Eminem), which is still one of the greatest movies ever made (I’ve seen it over 50 times), and Field of Dreams, which still makes me cry and feel completely hopeful about so much….. beautiful film and score by the late, great James Horner.
Sigh… life moves so fast. I’m spending a lot less time on facebook. Good. Fuck everyone on there and FUCK Facebook and the phony bullshit that it all is. Musicians playing regular gigs, living the dreams and fun that I have had little part of and even less, these days. I network, I try to get gigs… no one helps, no one cares… everyone out for themselves. Always. People traveling, buying tons of cool stuff with all their money. The less I am exposed to that shit, the happier I am.
Don’t know what else to say… have one more student at 815 and then I can go home and decompress a little bit. Really burned out, and I hope I can stay healthy enough to enjoy my 12-day winter break.
Much love to all of ye,
