A totally different journey all together. Nike+ Playlist updated.

Actually.

I had multiple playlists that I’ve made since I started running. Mixed them up a little so that I could still run without being routine and also keeping some of the key songs that would “power” and keep me running.

Till today, I find music a great distraction and something to focus on while running in continuous circles like a race car in a NASCAR circuit, the lyrics, the driving guitar riffs, the beating of the drums. Helps me in my imagination when I run, either a train, a horse, running away from zombies etc, and also to keep my head on the carrot in front of me,  thinking of more ideas in writing songs or just purely music in general to keep my momentum during the run.

Without music I think the run will be a totally different journey all together.

The playlists that I usually create has a mixture of genres, tones, speed, and feel. Thus, to make my run more dynamic. This playlist however, is more consistent with just one or two genres. Usually this happens when I’m stressed out and I need some harder music do my runs and workouts to quicken  my pace to work harder.

Hello from Bandung and more updates!

Hey guys!

I’m currently in Indonesia in the city of Bandung with An Honest Mistake, as we are recording our full fledged album with 11 tracks and a few bonuses to it. I’ve been here since last Thursday and will be here till this coming Monday! To be honest right now I can’t wait to get back home as I’ve been stuck in the studio and it has been tiring to record especially for violins as there are tonnes of parts to record as well as vocals with can be tiring for Darren and Sheryl.

Since touching down here, I’ve developed severe coughing and flu, and my body has been aching from sleeping on the floor. Definitely was a mistake not to bring a sleeping bag! Hopefully at the end of this week I would have time to head into the city to go shopping and a massage!

Other than that, I’ve been back from Australia since the middle of June (close to 2 months now), and I’ve been busy with the preperations of the band’s recording, catching up with friends and family, went for a church camp, and more importantly to send out my resumes and portfolio as I am now officially looking for a job and done with my study life! Definitely can’t wait to see what the world has to offer.

I’ve been pretty “religious” lately I guess cause now I’m at the point of my life where I have many major decisions to make in my life in this transitional period of looking out for myself very soon: working, find my own living spaces, a life partner, expenses, managing my own money and LIFE!

Its been so great to have many great friends that are continuously giving me the encouragement I need as I look for a job and to make the decisions in my life that will help me grow. I’ve been praying, reading the bible more regularly now and seeking God for answers to all my questions and the desires of my heart. And at the recent church camp, God did turn up and gave me the peace of mind and wisdom that I needed to make my decisions and priorities in life.

I’ve also been writing a few tunes myself and also writing more lyrics, drafts and drafts, as I’m still learning to write lyrics for songs from my heart.

I guess thats all the updates that I’ve for now : )
