Wonderful Tonight

Yes! Finally something good to write about here.
We have (at long last) finished all the work on the Mistaken soundtrack!! Awesome. After all the months of slogging trying to get everyone down, the multiple layers we had record for each track, the reviewing of the edited tracks. It's finally done. Will be launching it during the FOC comm introduction night as a sort of publicity for Hall Prod so hopefully that will drum up some publicity as well as some revenue for Hall Prod. Really hope that this works out fine.

Plus, I had a really good talk with Apple over dinner and bounced ideas off him for next year's production. Ideas flowing left, right and centre. Amazing. Seriously need to do more of that if we're gonna come up with another solid performance. Yays! Excitement builds yet again. The many stages of production show their faces once again. The love stage, the love-hate stage, the hate-to-high-hell stage, the love-it-to-bits stage. Basically varying degrees of love and hate for Hall Prod. Aye. The mood swings begin.

Growing Pains

Yea. Everyone goes through some growing pains once in a while. Not just the physical pains but the emotional ones too. I hate blogging about stuff like this. But sometimes talking helps get things off your chest.

Don't you think it's pretty weird. Emotions are created in the brain and shouldn't really affect anything else. But you do seem to have actual heart pains when you go through tough times and emotionally draining periods. I doubt there is much physiological linkage between the heart and brain in terms of feelings and stuff, but it just happens yea?

I guess learning to deal with such events in life are all part of growing up. It doesn't mean that it doesn't suck big time to have to deal with them, but just know that you are not alone. When you think about how much your life sucks, just know that there is someone out that who has it way worse off than you do. Doesn't make the problems go away, but it sure as hell makes you feel slightly guilty for feeling so down.

I guess life's not too shabby for me. Like I told a friend, where you fall short, the Man upstairs comes in and fills up the void. Experienced first hand with my subject registration problems. It's in people that cannot make the mark that God does his most awesome work. And trust me, He's got plenty of work where I am concerned. I seem to falter every step of the way.

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. (Psalms 119:105)
That has to be one of my favourite bible verses and an excellent pick-me-up in my bad times. Hope it can do the same for you.

I guess the thing that brings me down sometimes is the feeling of being alone. Partially my fault cuz I'm way too insular to open up fully to other people. It may sound strange to some people, but despite the smiley happy exterior is a troubled being inside. Bottling up stuff is not good for you. It festers in you and develops into a full blown infection if you're not careful.

I might take a hiatus from blogging for a while. Cuz I like my blog to be a happy sunshine kind of place and not the emo kid kind. And so, if I don't have anything nice to blog about, I figure I just shouldn't blog at all. So there.
