Right. So I made this blog last year with some half-cocked plan to actually update it frequently with tales of my exploits and descriptions of the various musical and cultural events I attended. Looking at the idea, it was doomed to fail from the beginning. I'm quite terrible when it comes to writing out long descriptions of things I've done, by the end of the process I always feel that I've in some way come off as a conceited, self absorbed jerk and that my sentences bear repetitive structures. In the past these things would be cause for me to avoid updates, making the excuse that "oh I'm just too exhausted to write today" or "that's not even something worth sharing" and the latter was probably true in some cases but I digress.
The short story is since I started this thing last fall is that I've been to around 10 big shows, began pursuing a long term whim to be a DJ and as a result have done several sets at parties and events; and I've quit my job at starbucks and begun a whole new, more exciting journey into the world of specialty coffee: learning how to be a "real" barista which has revealed an entire world of information to me. I've met some awesome people since last fall and continue to seemingly every day.
So, I guess what I'm saying is that I'm going to make another pass at this and put to words the interesting and exciting things I learn on my current quest to figure out what I eventually want to do with my life.
