My drive in life comes from a fear of being mediocre. That is always pushing me. I push past one spell of it and discover myself as a special human being but then I feel I am still mediocre and uninteresting unless I do something else. Because even though I have become somebody, I still have to prove that I am somebody. My struggle has never ended and I guess it never will.

I noticed that you moved to van a while ago from some pic, how do you like it so far? does the rain bother you? whats the people like?

Vancouver is definitely the kind of place where you can do anything you want as long as you’re willing to work hard, and that’s very exciting to me. It is very expensive to live here, but I think it’s worth it for the opportunities you have surrounding you, not to mention the giant shield of mountains and endless ocean views. REALLY, the rain is not bad at all. It’s hardly a thing. Actually, I think I moved here before one of the best winters on record (for Vancouver, not for the rest of Canada) so the weather has been a dream, and even the rainy days are not unbearable since there are lots of nice cafes and things to do inside. As for the people, to be frank, they can seem quite hostile at first. I noticed when I first moved here that people seem to be more self-conscious, so it can come off as being cold. After being here for a while though, I’ve lost that sense a bit. Also it depends on what neighbourhood you find yourself in; some are more inviting than others. If you have a chance to, come visit! It’s a great place.

Serious question here: if I put together a techno/dance compilation called The Roman Pines, would anyone pay money for it?

So tempted to post a song I’m working on, but I’ll try to restrain myself for once and just post this text instead.

Sooooo… I just realized that garageband has MIDI capabilities(??) I do not know how I didn’t figure this out sooner. Anyways, this is a sample of what I’m working on.

nathanielatakora and I went canoeing. He’s my favourite person, mhmm.
I said to myself, “I will watch what I do and not sin in what I say. I will hold my tongue when the ungodly are around me.” But as I stood there in silence— not even speaking of good things— the turmoil within me grew worse. The more I thought about it, the hotter I got, igniting a fire of words: “ LORD, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered— how fleeting my life is. You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand. My entire lifetime is just a moment to you; at best, each of us is but a breath.”
