Hi friends, today i’m 22. It makes me feel really old being past the point of 21, even though it means very little in reality.
It makes me think that when I was 14 or 15 I wondered where I would be at this point. It’s safe to say I’ve accomplished very little in that period of time, but as a person I’ve grown into a well rounded, mature man. That in itself is something to be hugely proud of, and health permitting I’ll be on this bizarre world long enough to accomplish as many goals as I set for myself, both short term and long term.
My awesome younger brother literally gave me his bank card and told me to buy what I wanted. I bought myself a decent quality snowball usb microphone, as well as a cheeky pop filter for it too. It doesn’t fit my super limited setup right now, but I’m hoping to be able to get my computer up and fixed soon enough.
So in a week or so I’m planning to keep pursuing my hobby of recording songs and working on my voice, as well as my own tracks. A little multi-track recording and harmonizing maybe? As you can probably tell, I’m pretty excited by that. The longer term goal of the microphone idea is to use it to vlog and record skype conversations during League of Legends games and add to my current blogging expedition of content. It’ll be a total learning curve with recording, editing and so on. But it’s something that I want to accomplish, and I’m going to. It’ll lead me somewhere, regardless of the crazy path my life could take one way or another.
Here’s to another year, may the odds forever be in your favour. May I grow older, maybe grow better facial hair this year and find the happiness that I’m still seeking in my 22nd year on this daft Earth.
