Today was a full day of checking boxes off the ‘honeydo’ list (to be fair, my honeydo list is self created). That’s life. There are things that you have to do, despite the fact that you REALLY don’t want to do them. Despite the fact that you have other things that you would WAY rather do. That was today…and I was completely wiped out. Tired, sweaty, grumpy, and ready to chuck the lawn mower. I actually didn’t chuck the lawn mower…instead I put it away after using it like good little grown up.
We are in the middle of spring here in the US and my self-imposed deadline of releasing this EP by the end of spring is quickly approaching. So I give up…I throw in the towel. I’m too worn out.
Actually…no I don’t.
I take a shower, put on my big boy panties and get to work. In the studio today, I took care of some the less glamorous things that HAVE to be done when you’re recording music. Compressors and EQ’s were my best friends this afternoon. I swept EQ frequencies and pulled those ugly areas that make your ears scream OUCH! I then added in my favorite compressor plugins and leveled out the acoustic and electric guitars, bass, and piano…things are coming together and it’s sounding great.
So for all the Creatives out there, next time you’re too tired, sweaty, grumpy, and ready to chuck the lawn mower…DON’T!!! Show your dedication to your craft by gathering as much will power as you can possibly find…stop picking your nose…and get to work!!!
