The last week has been really busy. The kids are finishing up the school year and I just can’t believe how big they’re getting. I know it’s kind of cliche but it really is crazy how fast time flies by. At my fourth graders little graduation ceremony one of the songs they played was “Forever Young.” Then I remembered that my class sang the same song during our 6th grade graduation a million years ago! It’s amazing to see your children grow up because I don’t feel like I’m getting older, but obviously that’s not true. I still feel like I’m 29.
I also started writing a new song this week. Well I should say I started it a while ago but it kind of never got anywhere. Sometimes that happens to me–I start writing something, don’t practice or put any effort into it, then get busy with everyday life and my song never gets written. But I started this one again. I think all my songs have similarities but this new one sounds the most like my song “Journey.” Many people tell me that’s their favorite so I thought I’d write another one that’s similar to it. (To hear it, see the music player on the right of the screen).
You might remember that I wrote another song that I never could seem to get motivated to record…I decided today that I’m just not going to record it. I’m just not feeling it anymore. I know it must sound strange. Like how could I put so much effort into a song and not record it? I don’t know why that happens sometimes. It doesn’t happen that often but occasionally it does. Maybe someday I’ll get back to it, but for now I’m finished with it.
More good news this week–I don’t ever put work stuff on here but I did want to tell you guys that I accepted a new job 🙂 It’s still in the medical coding field, but I’ll be doing more auditing (checking other coders work). I am so excited about this! It’s exciting to me because I’m able to move up in the profession but can still balance everything and everyone else in my life. I was very fortunate to be offered this opportunity and I hope to stay at this job for the long haul. So, wish me luck! I start at the end of the month.
Thanks for reading this and continuing to listen to my songs! I hope to have the new one finished soon, and I promise I will record this one 🙂 If you haven’t heard my other songs yet they are in the music player to the right of the screen.
