When I'm Not Looking At You It's Like You Don't Exist. But I'm Not Ignoring You.

Okay, so this published before I had a chance to actually write anything.

So it wasn't a good year. Economists predict this year will be even worse, financially speaking, than last year. But I say "Feedle-dee-dee!" or whatever it was Scarlett said. "I shall think about that tomorrow!" Things were bad both financially and on a personal level—from huge, seemingly insurmountable family problems and not being able to find a job to a good friend's brother unexpectedly dying (which marked a bitter end to 2008).

School truly was the bright spot in all of that (plus an unexpected good ending to at least some of the family problems). I'm meeting new people, which has been a real salve on a sore soul. Plus, writing music again has been rewarding (hard, but rewarding).

Resolutions:

1. Get in shape, baby.

2. See at least one opera at the Lyric.

3. Finish my symphony.

4. Get over my crush on Gary Oldman. (Yesterday I watched The Dark Knight again. Can you tell?) Although, I gotta say Christian Bale was hotter than hot as Batman/Bruce Wayne.

EDIT: To all those who offered encouragement or comfort, thank you. Here's toasting to a brighter year! Music stuff to be up soon. Promise!

Life rotates like the Earth. When things get dark then you know the sun is soon to shine again.

I hope your years shines bright and sunny.

Wishing you a brilliant year in 2009, freddie, you deserve it.

I'm so glad you're writing music again. The phrase "feeding the soul" comes to mind. Not that I believe in a soul in any religious sense but you get my drift.

Wishing you wonderful, magical times.

I think you're right, Bevie. Thank you and Happy New Year!!

I wish you the same, FHH. You're absolutely "write" about writing music and how it feeds my soul. (hah - I know you enjoy the pun!) The only comparable nourishment is writing stories.

Writing a symphony sounds like fun and you simply have to go for it.

But Gary Oldman is mine, do you hear me, mine!!!

Can't we share him, Whirl? ; )

You know, in looking this over, I think I rival Kiersten in parenthetical statements.

Hey, if you guys are sharing on Gary, it's gonna haveta be a foursome. I have had a major thing for that guy and his skinny little ass for quite some time.

Okay, okay, you have him when I've had my way with him.
