Seasons and Songs

Last night was pretty boring. I went to work, did a bunch of nothing, then when I was done that, I did some more nothing just to fill the time. I finally got off work and was exhausted as usual. That pretty much summarizes the entire night.

Today was average. It wasn’t terribly bad, but it wasn’t amazingly good either. It was just there. There’s not much to say.

If you’re noticing that these blog entries are getting shorter and shorter, there’s two reasons for that. The first reason is that I’m too busy playing my guitar to care about writing a long entry. I’d much rather be playing my new guitar. The second reason is that there’s just nothing to talk about. I would say something if there was, but there just isn’t. October is the month where everything starts settling down into routine, and things just get sort of depressing. I think it mostly has to do with the weather. With spring, everything’s new and fresh, and so spirits are lifted. In the summer, there’s lots to do, so you’re occupied – the only sad thing about summer is that it goes by so quickly. Fall, however, brings colder weather and death. All the leaves fall off the trees, all the animals go into hiding for the winter, and then things just get “blah.” There’s no other word to describe it. This “blah” feeling doesn’t occur until the winter sets in, though. At first, the change in seasons and the fresh snowfall brings a cheery attitude, but once the snow gets old and mucky, and you see it on the sides of the streets all brown and dirty, the despair sets in. It seems like so long since you’ve seen grass that you just want to dig a hole to your lawn, just to make sure your lawn is still there.

Anyways, that’s the deepest thought I could come up with. I think I should just stick to playing guitar. I’m actually getting pretty good, I think. I can change chords pretty quickly, and more importantly, I can remember most of the chords I’ve learned. It’s so much easier when that happens. But yeah. I’m going. I have songs to play.
