Some Days Are Better Than Others
and today was a pretty bad day. (productively speaking. I thoroughly enjoyed my day today. Though the non-productive-tryptophan is setting in right about now.)
Though I had a big inspired rant about my life, it seems like I didn’t follow through today. So here it is. Present me telling future me what to do:
- You (me) wil wake up at 8:30.
- You (me) will not hit the snooze button, wake up, take a shower, check email THEN make cereal.
- I (you) will be at school at 10/10:30.
- You (I) will practice drums first, then move to the lab to write on Sibelius (before Arranging class at 1).
- Eric (me), you (I) will do this all while wearing a tie because you are going to see Phillip Glass’ Premier of his newest symphony at Carnegie Hall Tomorrow. (cue freak out)
Okay, I haven’t hit desperate measures, but I think in two days I will enact The Sacrifice. The Sacrifice is a simple idea. What happens is, I give up something until I accomplish something. (I did this with college applications both years.) It’s under further review, but this years The Sacrifice is shaping up to look like this (note that these are unofficial, I’ll make a big thing once it is decided):
- I’m not allowed to drink until I have the first piece of music completely written for my senior recital. (Please note this is under review)
- I’m not allowed to eat candy until my senior recital is finished. (I might add soda to this.)
IT IS LAW. (potentially)
On a happier note, lots of music is going to be seen this week. Tomorrow is Philip Glass, Wednesday my friends dad Joe Henry is playing, and Friday is Mark Guiliana and Brad Mehldau duo at Smoke.
Here we go.
(P.S. a note to future Eric: don’t ever do yoga an hour and a half before you go to bed. Just don’t.)
