Checking in With Reality: 09/03/10

Dearest Devotees,

I'm really happy with how February went. I met loads of lovely new people in all of my classes, some of which I practice and study outside of class with. My zeal for my faith has grown infinitely, and I overcame a huge block in my musical abilities through not giving up on my intermediate piano classes and instead spending 5 hours(!) a day for a week practicing my pieces for my midterm. All the goals that I decided to meet in February have been met and now it's time to work on those for March.

For this month I want to:

  • Record all my songs A capella style on garageband.
  • Choose the 10 songs I want on my demo.
  • Fill them out as need be.
  • Work on finding the chords for at least 2 of them.
  • Write down music video ideas.
  • Practice my french at least 3 nights every week on my computer.
  • Continue with my regular blogging.
For this week I want to:
  • I will record 3 songs on GarageBand.
  • Practice my French nightly.
  • Continue with my regular blogging.
  • Finish my school work.
  • Read books, blogs and magazines.

This is mostly my music month and I am really excited for it. I am not too sure what I will be my career, I mostly alternate between music, fashion design and costuming, and writing, so I am trying to work on all of them, roughly equally. Anyway, I hope this music month thing works out.

Love you all and Stay inspired,

P.S. So let me know what you think. What do you have planned for the month? How are your goals for the year working out? Are any of you interested in music with regards to songwriting, singing, instrument performance? Feel free to let me know in the comments below.

I wish I had goals like that..but I dunno. I just try to tackle it when I see it..approach..I guess. My room is still a mess. I just hope to start moving more once the snow melts and the fog lifts and its warmer out.

honestly, I'm not that talented in playing an instrument like my brothers. They play by ear on the keyboard. I do like the sing, but very out of practice..so I just listen.

Wow, that's great about the recording and everything. All the best on that French too. I've just been listening to Vampire Weekend when I can.

This sounds really exciting! Hope you can reach all your goals! :)

Congratulations on completing your February goals, my love! I'm so excited for your March goals and how you've devoted yourself to music!

I did accomplish one of my February goals, as well - which I'm ecstatic about! For March I'm not sure what my goals are yet...I'll have to think about it! I adore music - I write about local bands for a newspaper, and I'm constantly unearthing indie bands to fall in love with; but I don't play instruments or sing. I adore you for doing so!! :)

Your 'this week I want to' goals, are exactly the same as mine except without the first one obviously.

Merci beaucoup for the lovely comment darlings, I adore your blog, would you like to exchange links?

Stay safe and chic ma chérie,

Great goals :)
I'm not sure what my goals are yet - probably to relax for once! Haha, I've been working nonstop since last year & didn't even have a winter break :( So I'm definitely plan to enjoy my spring break coming up!

And sure, I would love to exchange links! I've added you already :)

Bright sunny days definitely motivate me too.

-Ellie's friends:
I love to play by ear on piano, singing's lovely and don't worry if you're out of practice, you can always get back in the game.

-Cass and Cady:
Love Vampire Weekend!

Thank you!

-Cafe Fashionista:
Thanks dearest! I'm happy for you as well. I love hearing about the indie bands you discover. They are Always fabulous!

-English Rose:

-Audrey Allure:
