What a relief it is to just sit and not have tens of assignments floating in the back of my head. It was the nicest thing earlier, just sitting in my living room with no obligations, no guiltiness of not doing my classwork. What a relief.
I keep a little moleskine of staff paper that my sister gave me for graduation, and I keep little notes of things in songs that I would change. Rhythm changes, harmonies, those sorts of things. It’s one of my favorite things I own.
