New year, new start.

It’s been a while since I last posted but to be perfectly honest, blogging wasn’t a top priority. We finally got a new place so we’re still trying to sort out that craziness because we found out a couple of weeks before Christmas. Worst time to move ever. Still got loads to do that probably should have been done the moment we had the keys but on top of having to deal with that there was gift buying, getting ready for Christmas in general and all the other madness that goes with that time of year.

However, I figured as it’s a new year, it’s time for a fresh post for 2015. I’ve got a busy year ahead of me. I have literature coursework to catch up on [not gonna lie, literally not been touched, too much going on at once!], I’ve begun learning Japanese which is a challenge I again haven’t been able to get into properly because we’ve been so busy. So that’s gonna be a challenge to get into. Then I’ll be getting back into recording, relearning bass and some guitar, possibly getting piano lessons if time and cash permit. And that’s after we decorate the home, get some furniture, get settled in, get my other hospital appointments out of the way and get away for a break up north for a few days. Absolute insanity of the highest level has been going on over here these past 2 months, it’s nuts!

Either way, I’m kinda glad to see the back of 2014, it wasn’t spectacularly bad, but then it wasn’t spectacular either. Now we’re going into 2015 with a new home and a completely new start and frankly, I can’t wait.

Come at me 2015, I’m waiting!


Oh wait, maybe not

The storage solution after measuring is way too big for the minute space that I have. Eugh. So back to the drawing board, or not at all. I might just have to leave it and study on the bed as normal. It’s just increasingly difficult to concentrate with clutter and no good space, I’m sure you guys know what I mean. 

Sometimes I go out to study but even then it’s pretty impossible because there is literally nowhere quiet enough, even my local library has no control over it’s noise levels! I always looked at libraries as quiet, solitary places where you could work in peace, now it’s let every loud kid in with music speakers and no knowledge of volume levels. Eugh I just want to study! Sadly, socialisation aside, this is a peril of studying from home as opposed to in a college, no organised classroom environment. You have to make your own and that can be difficult.

It’s amazing how a quiet, clear workspace can do wonders for your working methods and ability. I’m out of ideas, I just have to plough on as I am.
