Friday night was a one-year anniversary gig for a party i've been going to for the last six months or so. It was a blast, and it made me happy realizing how many people i've met since i started going out regularly again. Briefly stopped into a bizarre afterhours (not for the techno/rave crowd AT ALL) before kicking back listening to tunes at a friend's. I still made it home by 10, which was probably a wise move because i had (early) class at 3:30. Unfortunately my buddy who i'm doing my class with hadn't recovered from the night so i flew solo, which sucks for her because there was a lot to absorb. Learned some really cool workflow concepts, which is exactly what i need the class for. I sense other people are struggling because they don't have a background in writing music. They don't know how effects or synths or samples work, so they have that barrier on top of learning the software, but for me just learning the software it's really productive. Due to my friend not being there we didn't have our usual post-class jam session, which was a bit of a bummer, but i spent the rest of the weekend at home just mucking around. It is so time-consuming for me to piece this stuff together now, but at least i'm working on it. I'm sure i'll be able to get tracks together quicker again if i keep practicing.
I was going to write more, but J is home and we are both hungry. Time to cook dinner and then bed and more work. And more nail-biting to see if we got the place. Sigh.
