I am a failure. And a loser.

Got up early this morning to go to a meeting at work that had been canceled. So I went to the gym instead. Came home and worked on a lot of music of different varieties. I spent some time last night and continued today) working on a song of my own that I knew was a big waste of time because it was too repetitive and got too muddy. And I was right, it was a big waste of time because it's too repetitive and gets too muddy. Also spent some time trying to mix one of Seanyboy's songs but it never really came together. So I'll work on that one again tomorrow. And then I also worked on another song of my cousin's, and the jury's still out on that one, but if I decide to put more effort into it, it's gonna need a lot more effort, so I have to decide whether it's worth the time or if I should just start over.

Then I took a nap and then I went to work.

So today was kinda frustrating, but not too frustrating because I didn't have any high hopes. Tomorrow I'm off work (for the most part) and so hopefully I'll be able to put more focus into working on Sean's song.

I was thinking about collaborative art the other day, and I decided that I function best during the early stages of a project: getting from the point where you have a few ideas and not much else and making something worthwhile out of them. I'm really not very useful once the project has progressed past that point and you want to turn it into something good and beautiful and detailed and polished.

Plans for a potential trip to Ohio in late May are brewing.
