  1. Creative Word: Connect

    [embed]https://soundcloud.com/cora-romany/aint-misery-fun[/embed]

    So I really like the band Paramore and over the weekend I played around with their songs “Misery Business” and “Aint it Fun” so the word being connect I thought this recording worked- I had fun with it and I love how it turned out. I thought to use it because I think I connected the two songs quite well, plus it was fun to mess around with.

    Creative Experiment: Throwing Out the Right

    The one thing I find wrong with my recording is the squeek that comes right before the last guitar rift. It bothers me so much. I love how everything came together except for that one section. I would take it out but then the seperation between the beginning and ending halves of the song are lost. I feel not having it makes the mash up lose its “flavour” but having it in there bothers me. Final census? I guess it’s up to the person listening whether it should be taken out or not.

    Daily Dose: Lines of Communication

    Alright so…I don’t even know where to begin with this. I find it lovely that today was connected with prayer, especially prayer as a way of guidance. I however do not think prayer is where creativity comes from- guidance, answers, support? yes imagination and creativity? No Why? creativity to me comes from the subconscience – we see a blade of grass move and it reminds of something and suddenly we have an entire book plot (ok it doesn’t work exacty like that) but creativity comes from the random thoughts in our heads and inspiration around us. Yes be thankful for your gift of creativity- but creativity itself comes from ourselves and our surroundings- or so i like to think anyway.

    Daily Act: Conscience Communication

    Ever play back a song because you were listening but not…listening? I mean you heard it- the guitar, the drums, the lyrics- but you didn’t catch that feeling it gives you, weren’t paying attention to the meaning of the words. It was just background noise that was over before you realized it even began. Conscience Listening is not just hearing the song but getting that emotion out of and the true message behind the lyrics and accompaniment

    Creative Word: Nourish

    [embed]https://soundcloud.com/cora-romany/boil[/embed]

    So I made this recording a while ago and had no idea when i was going to use it- but then i remembered food and water have a lot to do with nourishment. So i figured why not use the recoring of boiling water that I had? I thought it worked plus I really just thought it sounded cool.

    Creative Experiment: Tool Kit

    Laptop

    Pros: many DAWs available, can record straight to computer and edit, short amount of time to create MP3

    Cons: not all DAWs available for PC, trials only last for certain amount of time, not all software is preferable/ hard to use, when trial is up need to find new DAW
    Iphone/Ipod/Ipad

    Pros: can easily record, edit in garage band, can easily transfer files

    Cons: besides garage band no editing software available

    Guitar

    Pros: always available

    Cons: lack of confidence in abilities

    Daily Dose: Baby Steps

    I deeply agree with today’s passage, all our experiences not only teach us lessons but give us a chance to grow creatively and create new ideas. It is also important to remember to use creativity as an outlet to release us from stress from circumstances we don’t think we can handle- a coping mechanism. We need to use life experiences and circumstances as a chance to grow and develop as a person and artist. One step at a time we grow, and it is quite incredible to watch our development.

    Daily Act: Trust:

    I agree with this, but I personally trust more deeper than “creative spirit and spiritual nature” I learned to trust myself, my instinct and God. Not everyone is religious or spiritual but I learned not to worry so much and let life go on as it well. Because if you don’t trust yourself and your creative instincts it would be close to impossible to grow and change as an artist becuase you never push boundaries or question what more you can do.

  3. Creative Word: Breakthrough

    Creative Experiment: Say Yes

    Ok so i find saying yes to every single idea i have hard- I mean they can’t all be right or use some development. But in saying yes I can now think ok what can i do with this then? It makes me focus rather than on scrapping ideas on how to make them better and improve.One draw back however is working with too many or too vague of ideas. It is important to learn how to connect all ideas, and develop them further

    Daily Dose: Progress is Perfection

    I really loved this passage for many reasons; one of those many being that perfection is literally impossible, and so if it that is the purpose of your career it is literally pointless. There is always room for gorwth and development and mistakes are inevitable. It is important to learn from mistakes, You can’t rely on having that perfect creative session because those are impossible

    Daily Act: Focus

    Focusing on one project at a time not only helps to learn to manage time, but you are able to put all your energy into one task. Completing one task to the best of your abilities is better than many hlaf-done jobs that you may not be proud of.

  4. Creative Word: Trust

    So I discovered I have garage band, or an amature one anyway, on my ipod so I decided to play around with it. I had to go with my gut and “trust” what i thought sounded good, or at least interesting. I have a time limit on what I can record so hopefully I can work out how to get rid of that, and if not then hey this app is better than nothing which is what I had before, at home anyway.

    Creative Experiment: Hop In The Shower

    Can i just say I love taking showers? Their refreshing and relax me. The waters warm and soothes the aches and worries that the day has brought on. It feels well earned after a hards day work and well this experiment was an excuse to spend some time thinking about my ideas and what i want to do and what i can do, rather than sit and worry about how to make it happen. Very helpful on clearing my head.

    Daily Dose: Envy

    Well can i just say I personally really needed to read something like this? Thinking about your life- its pros and cons- make you not only aware of why you should be grateful for your life but how you can improve on the issues you have. It is a great way to see where to grow as a person to become the best you need to be. This is also a reminder that people aren’t against you, and you shouldn’t be against them either- we all need to be one big support system. Some pros in my life is prom coming up, going into university but of course the most obvious con being money- how can I even afford any of this? But that’s a different topic for a different time, the point is I am able to see the pros and cons in my life and now it is up to me to find a solution.

    Daily Act: I Am Unique

    Ah, my favourite saying! Everyone is unique and this is why i love people. Everyone has their own talents and it is important to learn how to develop and master these talents unique to you. I have to work on my confidence in my abilities and findnig my own style- it’ll take a while but it will be interesting to see where this next journey in life takes me, as it is unique to me and is one I must venture to not only hone in on my skills but to remind myself I am unique, and I should be proud of my skills/talents because of that!

  5. Creative Word: Innocence

    The word innocence reminded me of laughter, and i thought hey I have the perfect recording for this. Laughter is genuine happiness and so I thought why not use that to represent innocence? A pure and raw emotion that everyone goes through multipule times a day (or so I hope anyway)

    Creative Experiment: Treasure Map

    So if by treasure map you refer to the pieces needed to make the whole song that is the treasure I tend to write my songs as such:

    verse, verse, pre chorus, chours, verse, verse, bridge, pre chorus, chorus

    I usually follow this format because when i write music i do it to tell a story and following this structure helps me be able to stay on track with where I am in the story. It helps me stay in control of it.

    Daily Dose: Hearts and Minds

    Well i know personally whenever I am in a horrible mood music and prayer always brings me back. Prayer keeps me humble and music soothes me. It helps to relax me and I know i can communicate better through music. I find this is important when balancing heart and mind, because I am able to write my own song, or listen to one already made and it makes me think in a way that allows me to see what my mind and heart want- it keeps everything in focus. Without using both heart and mind it is important to not only recognize ones ambitions, but to simply be happy and think outside the box.

    Daily Act: Inner Guidance

    I always use music to help guide my mood, and if a certain comes on when im listening to my ipod I try to think about what the song means, because its important not to miss an important message. I tend to think wiith my head more than my heart so this is a good reminder to sometimes let my heart give in and learn to listen to it as well- because its important to hear both heart and mind. So its good to start by focusing on one and then gradually finding a balance

  6. Creative Word: Wait

    So for whatever reason I thought recording waiting for my popcorn to finish would be cool? I mean i love listening to it pop as you wait to fill yourself with the incredible snack (ok maybe i am just a little obsessed with popcorn than others) but anyway I thought it was cool, and I’m hoping in the future i may even be able to make some song out of it.

    Daily Experiment: Asking Why

    So this has nothing to do with audio, but i am trying to write a story and think this would be a great excercise to help me out, so these questions are gonna be stuff i can use for that to….

    is this ok?

    well too late to be asking that now haha

    1. why am I creating this?

    to get an emotion/idea out – to express something anything

    2. Who is my target audience and why?

    Teens-Young Adults

    I can relate to them and understand how they think/what they like

    3.Why should my audience listen/watch/read this?

    An escape from reality- to feel something get the emotion i am trying to get across (happiness, sombre, laughter…)

    4. Why is this important to me?

    because it is an expression of my interest, what i am thinking and what i am feeling

    5. Do i care about this project? Why?

    Yes- all projects need to be given 110% no matter how small or big

    6. Why is this an important message? Why isn’t there a message?

    This may or may not apply- my work is typically just out of pure on the spot creativity/thinking

    7. Why am I inspired to work on this project?

    music, video, book, anime, word i heard, and experience that happened to me, a flashback to something

    8. Why should/shouldn’t I change anything about my project?

    I like the raw footage/ it may not need editing

    9. Why not combine this project with another?

    depends on if it works well together

    10. Why would others be interested

    because it is unique/interesting and if not then hey at least its something to add to a portfolio!

    Daily Dose: Active Listening

    I agree with this! Listening is an act and it is sometimes hard to do with so many distractions- its a good thing to practice! Because not only do you show other people respect by completely listening to them, but you are there in the present moment and are not only creating lasting relationships but memories to look back on. You get to fully enjoy every moment of life and take in everything you hear. The more you hear the more you learn the more you learn the more your imagination has a chance to grow the more out of the box you think, that and you have a great connection to yourself, people and the world!

    Daily Act: Quiet and Attentive

    this is an important practice to not only learn music but to take in the music and what the musician has to learn. To get the full message the artist is trying to send, what needs to be fixed or worked on and what was just perfect! Plus its helpful to pick out chord/notes and other instruments used and how they can be munipulated to make some aweosme sounds. Without learning to listen, we sure miss a lot.

  7. Creative Word: Centre Focus

    So I found this super cool app called 4Beats they had a bunch of samples and I created this little number I actually love it so, i’m hoping to continue on finding apps I can use on my ipod to play around with. I just really thought the track was cool SO hope you like it too, it was exciting when i realized the samples i picked actually worked together so yay. 10 points for this app.

    Daily Experiment:

    ahahaha ahaahahaha I am already an anxious person who can’t deal with stress and I have a test that i am “studying” for… So that on top of all the work for this class? Yeah I feel rushed alright, I feel rushed. Not to mention tihngs coming up in my personal life, which i mean isn’t too much but…anyway getting off track the point is the most logical thing to do when rushed whether it be due to school, personal reasons, work, projects doesn’t matter you need to manage time so that you don’t feel like this so that you don’t go through this rush hour phase because then you’re not actually taking anything in or dealing with anything or giving it your all you just rush it to get it done and hope for the best and that is not ok. Everything needs to be thought out and time needs to be controlled – ha controlling time now that be great- anywho the next best thing is to not leave anything to chance or to the last minute have a back up plan and a back up plan for the back up plan (basically this goes on forever) you’ll be grateful for it in the end! And when in doubt throwing all your ideas into one giant chaotic awesome creation is cool to – and it’ll save time!

    Daily Dose: What is a Few Minutes?

    thank you for this reading it’s hilarious because this entire week I just went around thinking ok this is great i have so many awesome opportunities and projects coming up but when do i get me time! I personally been in the need for a nice quiet day full of nothing because it’s been nothing but go go go the last little while. So yes having that ten minutes of silence whether in the morning or before bed IT IS IMPORTANT and its important not just for creative growth but to stay sane and calm and in control of yourself. If someone is left with time for themselves not only will you tire out physically but you will not be able to take it mentally- your brain needs to relax, and your creativity needs time to recooperate and generate some new awesome ideas. So yes to anyone reading this, please take some time for yourself.

    Daily Act: Spiritual Self Care

    The way i care for myself is either a long relaxing shower, a long walk or a run – if i’m lucky i get all three! It gives me time to not only take care of myself spiritually (due to the quiet alone time, letting me think about anything and everything I need to) but it takes care of me physically so it’s nice to tie both together. Your spiritual self cant grow if you have no body to do all the wonderful things you do in life! Not only do i purposely make time for me to be alone to have time for myself (spirtual and mental) but this an excuse for me to slow down and just enjoy silence for a little to calm myself down and reconnect with myself!

    Creative Word: Obstruction

    So when I think obstruction I think out of the norm I think messy I think not staying within the lines or being odd- So i had some fun with Patatab – created what I think are some cool tracks fitting obstruction this is the one I liked the most

    Creative Experiment: Take A Second Look

    So I will be applying this experiment to my Lanois project because i think this will help me focus on it and figure out where i want to go with it.

    What else can I look at?

    I need to think about what sounds I can use to recreate the song Rocco- is there anything i can change take out or want to add? Keep it simple? Make it more complicated ?

    well simple is best, if anything i want to add a climax to it a crescendo would be cool! I think it will mainly consist of found sound and vocals.

    Should I even be working on this?

    Well i find it fun and its once I started manipulating the vocals, plus it is important for my mark AND i want to push myself to learn how to edit audio, next step I think is needed if i really want to make it in the film/music industry

    What is my bottom line?

    To be creative, complete the homework and have fun with it

    What is the focal point?

    Remember to be original – but try to keep the sound of the track that I am remaking

    What am I trying to achieve over all?

    Create a similar sound or use the track ‘Rocco’ to create one of my own!

    Daily Dose: Know It All’s

    I agree with this 110% No one can know everything, and not only that but perhaps someone has a better way of doing what you think is best. It’s not just about admitting you don’t know everything but being open to new possibilities. It is also important to know how to research and find the right answers, and who to go to if your research is coming up empty-handed (or even just for clarification) You can’t be a know it all, but you must know how to find answers and accept what other people have to say.Asking for help not only is a great way of learning, but taking initiative.

    Daily Act: Knowing What I Don’t Know

    I definitely try to understand everything about my interest, I want to have all the facts and all the information; its hard for me to think that there are many things I don’t understand. Letting go of this however is not only good for my mental health but for my creativity to; I stop questioning everything, just go with it and let my imagination be what it will, and this can apply to almost everything almost. I strongly believe no one person can know everything there is to know, and so must act according to my belief’s (Practice what I preech)

  9. Creative Word: Adoring

    Okay so I love using Paatab its so fun and i loved these sounds and thought they were adorable and used them to create a little music mash up. i was actually so happy when I found these sounds i thought it came together nicely.

    Creative Experiment: Emotional Dartboard

    Ok so i find this experiment impossible because my inspiration comes from in the moment, my surroundings, what i’m feeling and over all experiences. Inspiration for myself comes and go, it’s either i do something with it or it leaves me for good and i lose it so i literally cannot do this experiment for future projects, the initial idea well leave me forever and be nothing but a sweet memory.

    Daily Dose:

    So for myself, barely having anything I like to say I am humble, my ambition is to merely create because of my love for anything to do with art. i try not to get blindsided by the idea of fame I mean having work out there is fame enough because you left a mark on the world no matter how many people seen or heard it. I want my art to be relatable to people and help them through life cause thats what music is for me.

    Daily Act: You Can Never Give Too Much Love

    I try to do everything for everyone, that’s how i am; i spread the love because love is the beginning of so many other good things. Yes very cliche but isn’t life full of them already?

  10. Creative Word: Turning Point

    Ok so i thought this song was edgy enough to considered a turning point? Haha I don’t know I had fun making it and it thought it fit, I was thinking if i were at a turning point what would it sound like? and well I came up with this

    Daily Experiment: Watching Something New

    Well today I saw the avengers, and it was really well done I think I heard the people chatting the crunch of the popcorn, the sound of the chairs rocking people going up and down the steps to their seats. Their

    was a lot of excitement as we waited for the film to start and then the actual audio from the movie helped to make you feel apart of the story. Sometimes people don’t notice the little sounds we always hear, and I think we take them for granted sometimes

    Daily Dose: Healthy Perspectives

    Agreed ! We cannot live thinking once we make a certain amount of money we will be happy- happiness is so much more then having a career and success. You need to not only do what makes you happy but knows what makes you happy. You can’t fake happiness no matter how hard you try so I mean it’s really poitnless to go after something you know will only make you miserable.

    Daily Act: Encouraging Others Through Music

    Even if its not through a piece you wrote when you find a song that makes you happy and share it with others and they see how happy it made you the feeling is quite contagious really, and when someone sees how happy you are with your own work they then feel special to be sharing that moment with you so by all means go on and share the happiness

    Creative Word: Dispersion

    Ok so I used 4 beets again and I had so much fun with it I thought this one in particular that I created worked out well and I love this song,, maybe I’ll develop it? It was great to listen to I think- favourite recording personally I think.

    Creative Experiment: Facing Fear

    Tomorrow (or today) is prom….

    enough said. I am so stressed out about it if i come out alive it will be a miracle. So….yeah. Maybe I’ll learn a few things…. maybe.

    Daily Dose: You Can Lead A Horse to Water

    I am the most stubborn person alive- If i believe in something there is no changing my mind. I have to have things go according to plan, I won’t have it any other way. I know my biggest issue is thinking my work is good enough- I love excerises and I feel they help me grow every time. My only problem is thinking my own work is good, I always question it. On one hand this is bad, but on the other it also means i’m always looking for ways to improve and grow and I strongly believe no artist- be it through writing, acting, music- should ever be fully satisfied with their work and if you find you are then something must be wrong (that’s just my belief anyway.) I guess a part of my issue is letting go of the idea that all my work is bad- don’t get me wrong I have many projects that I am proud of…but it doesn’t mean I don’t see what could have been done differently or where I can improve. I’m stubborn in the sense where i refuse to believe any work of art isn’t “good” there’s tons of “good” art – hence why I try to learn to sing so many songs- but as I keep saying growth is also important. I don’t have an issue with what’s right or wrong- it was right when working in the moment, it was right when it was created it nothing changes that when working on projects. One needs to learn to grow from past projects and simply get better.

    Daily Act: Let Go

    I feel like this is also applied to life ‘let go’ a motto I try to live by everyday – control in general is hard to let go of so….here’s to be a little more flexible – in my future projects and in life.

    Creative Word: Decrease

    I decided to grab the good ol’ guitar and played around with my favourite chord. That being seeing what I can do to add a “decrease” in my playing while keeping the chord being played obvious. I found this to be hard- mainly because I am no expert and so i found myself either strumming too fast, too slow…all sort of problems. I am happy with this recording though so I mean everything with practice right?

    Creative Experiment: Baby Steps

    Ok so instead of doing this experiment here’s why I can’t; I don’t believe creativity can be controlled. If I work on a project is has to be when I am inspired- otherwise I find the passion isn’t there nor the motivation. I work when I am inspired, I try not to do things that will guide or control it because I believe that takes away from the raw idea and you eventually will lose it. (again just my thinking, this is what I believe) I will list some things that help me create my ideas or continue working on projects:

    leave it and come back- more ideas will come

    life experiences

    influences (book I’m reading, movie/TV show I’m watching, music I’m listening to, etc…)

    going on a walk

    keeping an empty head- letting things flow

    getting personal- not holding back and letting out raw emotion

    waiting until I’m half asleep (the best ideas come from my subconscious )

    all of these help me, they may not for others but hey whatever works.

    Daily Dose: Unnecessarily Complex

    so this is basically everything i try to avoid. i will always believe creativity can’t be controlled- there is no right or wrong. Learning to let it flow and let it be what it will are, i think, keys to success. i know speaking from personal experience if i didn’t have music – art in general i would be a lost cause. Music got- scratch that GET’S me through a lot of things. It definitely taught me a lot of life lessons and kept me calm through out the storm.

    Daily Act: Listen

    So i have trouble listening to my “instincts” or “gut” if you well, i have to learn to listen to myself and what i naturally feel is right and wrong. i think doing this will help me “love” more because i’ll trust myself more- i mean if i can’t trust myself how can i trust others? yes i did just get real personal- i will hold for awkward laughter…

    haha ok, but really this is something i think i will always have to work on so here’s to progress! (hopefully…eventually)

    Creative Word: Light

    Used 4beats again I really do love that app and i think this is close to being my favourite creation….clsoe but not quite. I was so happy when I made this, proud moment of the day! I like this one cause the beats are light I think the song is fairly “airy” so to speak.

    Creative Experiment: Tearing Down Problematic Truths

    I honestly can say I have no problems in my life, but i will say this: every problem has a solution. I learned staying calm, not trying to control everything and let things play out but most importantly staying calm through it all and knowning everything will work itself out over time.

    Daily Dose: Tune In

    I couln’t agree more- we all need those days to relax our mind and body and sometimes we also have to just ask for a little help. We can’t forget to offer help when we can to ! You accept help and be willing to help others- a true balance. Simply because always expecting people to help you when they can’t rely on you is not fair to anyone. It’s important to keep balance in all aspects of life and stayed “tuned in”

    Daily Act: Tune Up

    I do this everyday – I always try to look for any lesson I can learn from day to day things whether it’s from in class or someone who’s telling me a story. Being open and constantly adapting to new ideas and concepts not only helps growth but expend talents and abilities as well.

    Creative Word: Untangle

    Ok so I used 4Beats again and I love this one just because I mixed 8 different tracks together and it turned into a pretty solid demo. I like it because of how it mashes together it was awesome when I heard the end result.

    Daily Experiment: Graveyard Test

    ok so I did not go to any graveyard, though I was considering it; I did show a fellow classmate my work instead and they loved it! So I’m excited plus I love recording its incredible hearing it al come together. If I were to go to a graveyard I would visit my aunt and cousins grave just because of that family connection and knowing that they are there with me.

    Daily Dose: Money

    Ok this is literally what I try to tell everyone- money has no purpose other to buy more things that usually have no purpose. The things money gets us is not always permanent and we don’t always learn from the things money buys us. Life is so much more than what you have and own- you need to be able to find fulfillment through experiences and the people in your life.

    Daily Act: Give Encouragement

    I try to go every day encouraging someone- it leaves a positivity in both of us. Not only does it brighten their day but i walk away knowing i made someone happy. Its important to encourage others especially if they have any feelings of doubt and you truly love their work. Giving support not only helps others build confidence but it shows you respect someone and their work

    Creative Word: An Old Technique.

    Old technique made me think of simple instrumentals. Basic, not much more to it. Why? well it seems all forms of music can be created using apps- even this song was so keeping it simple and the at the bare minimum seemed like something todays recording required.

    Creative Experiment:

    So I want to apply this as a lesson to writing. I’m thinking of posting a link to something I write based off these daily meds this weekend cause they been helping a lot so I’ll get on that. Anyway applying this to writing here are questions/tips to help with character development & dialogue

    Dialogue:

    what does this person sound like?

    How would they react?

    what is influencing their response? (past experiences, current situation, over all mood, etc)

    what is the characters voice? (what would the character have to say)

    Character Development:

    remember you are creating a person, when writing – THINK AS THEY WOULD

    lose yourself and put your mind into your characters thoughts

    relate to your character

    see things as your character

    Daily Dose: Disposable Music & Musicians

    OK so I don’t think anything can ever be disposed of that was created by someone it impacts people and so influences them and then they go and create a bunch of similar or sometimes work that would not have happened without past/present creations. ( Marilyn Monroe still has a huge impact on women on the topic of beauty, Michael Jackson inspires hopeful artist every day….many more examples to come.)

    I did quote one republic “I got my mind made up , Man, I can’t let go I’ll keep running till the love runs out” why? well I thought it fit because the daily dose talked about love vs. business and how business means there can’t be love and a bunch of stuff I do not and will not ever believe in nor do i want to get into SO basically love means passion, passion means motivation, motivation means things get done projects are complete and everyone is happy. I know I’ll keep running till my love runs out cause once that’s gone so is all my inspiration, motivation and perseverance

    Daily Act: No Expiry Dates

    So I do this everyday- to me it doesn’t matter when something was made if i like it i like it- whether its a song from 2003 or a movie from 1991. Imagination knows no age, and the fact that people had to work 100,000,000 times more than we do now to create is enough to earn some apprecation. (animation especially- people realize they had to call in models and draw every single movement made right? and thats not even production yet or talent or soundtrack or sound effects…need I go on? ) Respect artwork people- no matter when it was created! Plus there’s also the fact that without the past techniques we would in no way have the modern day techniques we are so accumstomed to so APPRECIATE (yes I am saying that forcefully 😛 )

    Creative Word: Bound:

    Don’t ask me why, I thought this recording worked! I liked it Basically because everything fit together and was “bound” to create this catchy beat huh, huh? Ok I tried to be funny. Anyway I thought it worked, maybe? yes no? possibly? And I’m just rambling at this point ok! 😛

    Creative Experiment: Helping Others

    Well, I gave my brother my suit case for his trip today- but I’m his sister so I think that’s kind of expected? So probably doesn’t count too much. Well I know when you help others they get relieved- either their pitch changes the relief washes over their face, and I find people get real shy and giggle a lot?

    Well anywho I found this video on youtube that I think pretty much puts to music the ease people feel when they recieve help! I think it’s beautiful…now to go learn how to play piano

    Daily Dose: Serendipity

    I like the word today woo, ok so now to business-

    Yes life is full of little miracles everyday- and this is going to sound real cheasy so bare with me…

    life is a miracle – there I said it but that’s because it is when you focus on living in the moment and letting go and just letting creative freedom go in this case great things happen and life is good- everything works out. This is something I try to live by everyday. Maybe we all would be at a little more peace if we all lived like this ? ou conversation starter

    Daily Act: Look for Miracles

    psh, I see the fact that I woke up this morning a miracle, and then the fact I actually got up to go to school even when I wanted to curl back into bed is another one. Two words for everyone today:

    Will Power.

    Woo. 🙂

    Creative Word: Wonder

    Ok so i tried to make something mysterious sounding and this is what I created! I wonder something mystical, quick something that created the feeling of wonder, I think this track did the trick

    Creative Experiment: Different Clothes

    Well I couldn’t go to a thrift store BUT i am wearing shorts I bought a while ago for the first time and THEY’RE PURPLE ( they seem to be a size too big? oh well- anywho) so I feel very colourful today. Very artsy and out there, and ok just a tad out of my comfort zone but whatever its cool. Its cool wearing new clothes cause well its new and great for being different from the stuff i already own so i guess i’m also feeling a little rebellious? haha wonder what I will create today with all these emotions and just from changing my shorts to purple.

    HERE’S A SONG THAT TOTALLY FITS MY MOOD

    Daily Dose: A New Attitude

    Well to be honest I don’t know what to say here, I myself am spiritual and so I leave my life in the hands of God. I merely use the talents given to me (or attempt to) I learned in doing these daily meds trying to control things like grades, your job, your finances it sometimes is not only too stressful but uncontrollable so i begin to learn – note i say begin. I like having control over everything in my life for the most part so this is a new adventure or journey if you will that I am excited to start in my life.

    Daily Act: Spiritual Attitude

    i do this everyday I know I can’t do everything alone, and that I don’t have to. We too often forget this and that is, and it is something i try to remind myself everyday. Day by day, moment by moment don’t rush anything because once its gone there are no redo’s – you have one chance. So don’t feel like you have to go through it alone.

    Creative Word: Create

    Being the word for today is Create I feel as if anything goes. I mean the word create leaves you with the ability to literally record whatever you wish. Besides that it gives you freedom to be as imaginative with what the word create means. So I was at the beach and recorded the water, it relaxes me and I think it sounds pretty cool. Also I love the beach…so why not use that in my assignment? If I ever go missing that’s where you’ll find me.

    Creative Experiment: Natural Flow

    So this is why I always have my phone, laptop or something to draw/write with near by- I never know when inspiration is going to hit. Today in doing this experiment it’s funny because before I was trying to force an idea, any idea to come. But it’s important to remember creativity cannot be rushed. That’s how I ended up doing this particular daily med! I just went with it and let my ideas come naturally. I find work comes out better this way it’s not forced and then you feel real proud with whatever it is you created. Plus i find when you let creativity flow you end up creating so much ore than anticipated when yout try to control it.

    Daily Dose: Risk is the Spirit Love

    Love is all you need; it guides you, strenghtens you and in love you find people that support you. Very important to remember to stay open to recieving from and giving love to others.

    Daily Act: Love Over Doubt

    I find sharing feelings and thoughts is best done through music, I will apply this to my life and remember to leave all doubt behind and just focus on sharing and spreading love (yes real cheesy but hey, its true!)

    Creative Word; Retire

    I created this track today and thought it would be a great track for busy day just driving around which for some reason made me think of “retire” ? Not sure but this is definitely my second favourite creation!

    Creative Experiment: Nap Time

    never had homework telling me to take a nap…this was much needed and much appreciated. I ended taking a nap around 6 or something and woke up two hours later to my dog wanting a walk. Either way best homework ever I been lacking sleep lately (my own fault…) so it was nice to just lay in bed and fall asleep. Naps should be a daily thing. No joke, they help you just calm down and get some rest. I recomend a nap to anyone reading this.

    Daily Dose: Not Behind, Not Ahead, But Our Music Right Now

    You can’t control the future or what you’ll do in the future cause that is yet to be but for once i disagree: you need to either grow from the past, or use to it do even better next time (maybe it’s lyrics you wrote a year ago, an old essay you found that relates to what your writing now, a old movie you still love) in order to move forward you have to know what happened in the past be able to look back appreciate it and then say ok what can i do now? Yes ok the things of the past are things of the past and they are as uncontrollable as the future, and you do need to focus on the here and now but there is nothing wrong with looking back every now and then. Just rememeber past and future cant be controlled- so focus on doing what you can now to make a better future, and what the past has taught you. Because whatever you do now affects you in the future, so just do the best and most with now as you possibly can.

    A song that helps me fall asleep! because its calming and beautiful…

    Daily Act: The Music In Front of Me

    This is tough for me, i’m always thinking about yesterday, and last year and 5 years before that. Maybe its time to change that? We’ll see how this goes.I very much think you should live in the moment because before you know it, the moment passes by. Have to admit remembering to live in the now rather than the past is hard for, wonder why?

    A song that fits the mood 🙂 (did i post this song already? meh who knows 😛 )
