Hi readers! Welcome to 2019 everyone! I can’t believe we are only 1 year away from 2020. 2020 sounds so futuristic and to be honest I really thought we’d have flying cars by now, but apparently Elon Musk is still working on that. I will be turning 19 this year which is frankly….boring. 19 is such an awkward age. No milestone there. I guess you could say that my last year of being a teenager is special, but I don’t know…
Anyway, I am coming to you today from Zera Coffee in Denton. If you’re in the Denton area it is definitely a place to stop in. Great coffee and people. I have started my 2nd semester of college! *Celebratory sip of coffee* I made straight A’s my 1st semester which I am very proud of because I was born with mild stupidity. Look at me, growing and coping with my ailment. I am now taking Music Marketing 101 and Music Theory 101. Music Marketing is a lot like Music Business 101, but with more concentration on merch and revenue streams. Music Theory is already kicking my ass. Here’s a little known fact about me that you’d figure out after being around me for less than an hour, but I am….how do I put it…Criminally awful at Math. It all started in 2nd grade when I suddenly found myself not able to skip count like the rest of my peers. I also would apparently sing HELLA loud during math time and annoy everyone around me, but I thought it was in my head. My teacher told my mom that whenever it was time for Math, I would start humming or singing loudly…I guess you could say music has always been my escape. But ever since that, I have always been behind in Math. Now, to me, Music Theory is the Math of music. It is symbols and counting and notation (also a math term). My brain instinctually releases a hesitance and fear whenever I am forced to do any type of Music Theory. That includes using a click track. I honestly don’t know if this whole “straight A’s” thing is going to last for this semester. Also, if you see me using my fingers to count or using my tip calculator on my phone…don’t judge me…I am hella insecure about math lmao.
I was that kid whose mom took them to the library every day growing up. I fell in love with reading and writing early in life. I let the art of literature and imagination take up the spaces in my brain that were reserved for Mathematics. With that imagination, I started to develop weird fixations on random stuff growing up. When I was around 10, I became completely obsessed with Black Holes……….What the actual….What CHILD becomes obsessed with a region of space having a gravitational field so intense that no matter or radiation can escape. I would spend hours on the computer researching Black Holes and watching documentaries about how they form. My parents thought it was cute, but honestly, it wasn’t. I also became greatly interested in Aliens and the paranormal. My dad watched a bunch of Alien movies and documentaries which would actually scare me to death. But I was born with morbid curiosity so I began to research that, too. My parents have always been about letting me explore and gather knowledge about whatever I was interested in. I bonded with my dad by watching disaster movies like The Day After Tomorrow, 2012, Dante’s Peak, Poseidon, Contagion, etc. and he loved how interested I was in the morbidity of disaster. I don’t really know where I was going with that…..But i believe that my morbid curiosity helps with my music and being able to write idk.
I also love to shop….I feel like ya’ll are judging me about my weird fixations so here’s a few normal things I like, too. I like makeup, I love candles, I like cleaning, (when I wanna do it) I love writing, I like a few mainstream youtubers, I like to draw even though I suck, and I love cats. Okay….Till next time
