Somehow, it sounds even better than I remember it.

This really is one of my favorite albums ever made. I haven't listened to it in a long time since I switched to listening to music exclusively through Spotify a few years back and this is not on there.  Listening right now is giving me all kinds of chills. I love Manchester Orchestra, but I think Andy is at his best with acoustic instruments and his one of a kind voice at the focus.

If you need an album to listen to, this is it.

               The first pages do not need to be perfect to become so. The beginnings can hang between underwhelming and excruciatingly bland, but they’ll bring you back eventually. It doesn’t matter what you know now as much as it matters what you will be forgetting. The further you get from lines, the more the details will blend together to form a memory. For better or for worse, we will all feel differently in the future.

Pickups of the day! The Brand New album was marked at $4, but I'm still positive that I committed robbery.

Yeah, I definitely robbed them.

It has only been a few days and everything is already going smoother. I'm seeing real progress with music. I'm actually playing back something I started working on last night, and it's easily my favorite piece of work in a very long time. It feels different now than ever before. It's not just playing aimlessly until something finally works. I feel connected to what I'm working on again and I genuinely feel it. If that makes sense.

Then again, all of this could be a result of me finally restocking on coffee.

Yeah, it's probably the coffee.

Everything you do is leading to the point where you just won’t know what to do.
At that moment you may laugh but there is someone there who will be laughing louder than you.
So it’s true, the trick is complete, become everything you said you never would be.

I feel as if I've just been losing focus on everything ever since my channel started to gain a small bit of success. I need to go back to the beginning and get myself into not being content again. I need to get back to expressing myself rather than just looking for praise. The progress in my ability has remained stagnant for over a year.

I need to get better, and I will.

I've cut myself off from social media and all of the distractions that come with it. I can't focus on everybody else anymore. Surrounding myself with all of the things that I love is what will keep myself sane. I can't focus on what everybody else is doing anymore because it makes me doubt myself.  I'm getting everything back together.

This blog will be filled with everything I want it to be. I'm not worried about the views, just as long as it gives me a place to be myself while I continue to produce content.

I love all of the fans I've gained throughout this journey. You all have made me believe in myself, and now it's time that I finally repay you by putting everything I have back into this. This is a much needed fresh start.
