I've got more random garbage going around my head today that usual, so today seems like a good day for a random crap post. Even though it's not Friday.
I'm a rebel that way. See? I hate sticking to a schedule.
I've noticed that a lot of you have a lot of themed days in your blogging. Like Meme Monday, Ticked-off Tuesday, Wordless Wednesday, Thankful Thursday, Freaky Friday, Sleep-in Saturday, Spiritual Sunday.
Do you find that makes it easier to blog? Or Easier to think of things to talk about?
Honestly, the main reason that I don't do things like that is that I don't want to seem like a follower. Even though I am. I totally borrowed the Random Friday/Music post idea from Motherboard. I know a lot of you do that one. But, I can't seem to bring myself to do any other "regular" posts. I guess I just wanted to be different.
I had a pretty good run this morning. I know I've been whining and complaining about running for the past few months. I just can't seem to get out of this funky rut I'm in. You know how they say that accomplishing something (anything) is all mental. Well, it's so, so, SO true. A year ago, I was so excited to be running. I was LOVING it! I couldn't help myself. I'd go out, ready to take on the day, almost giddy about being out running. And I'd come home so happy.
Running still has a very positive effect on me. Once I'm out and doing it, I feel good. Ok, sometimes it's hard....like Saturday, when I did 13 miles, for the first time in a month. But, I did it. And it feels good to say I did it.
I think my problem is with motivation. Getting started. To narrow it down...it's getting up and out of bed in the morning. I don't know why I fight it so much. I ALWAYS feel better if I get up and run, instead of sleeping in. ALWAYS.
I think I just need to force myself out of bed and do it everyday. Maybe someday, I'll actually get used to getting up at 4:30 in the morning.
Hey, I just wanted to let you all know, especially those of you in Utah, that I'm singing with the Antiphonal choir for Lex De Azevedo's "Hosanna." It's a beautiful oratorio about Christ, the crucifixion and His resurrection. The music is absolutely amazing. It's been a very challenging and exciting experience for me to be part of it.
I'm telling you this, partly to brag, because I met Lex De Azevedo on Sunday, when he came to our rehearsal, and partly to tell you about the concerts. You should go. The music is just amazing. There are three soloists, including George Dyer, and Jenny Oaks Baker is featured on the violin. Of our course, me, among 100's of other people signing in the choir.
The concert is in Salt Lake at the 1st Presbyterian Church on April 10, and April 11.
Go check out the website, to listen to samples of the music, and buy tickets!
And now, my goal today is to get a few songs transcribed while the monkeys are at school. Gotta get to work!
