Thursday December 8th 2016
I woke up “late” today. 8:15. I was annoyed. Less time to enjoy the day. I had been tired last night at 11pm and instead just lay on the floor of my bedroom listening to music, falling asleep. The days are flying by too fast! We’ve almost been here 10 days. I don’t want it to end. (I don’t say that often.) I’m now keeping a personal journal in addition to this public blog. It’s so nice for me. I feel like my old self.
Thoth and I had breakfast and headed to the studio at 1pm by Uber. We did some up tempo pieces in major keys (one which was particularity beautiful) and I did a piano piece. We both felt better today than yesterday, even though Thoth probably slept one hour last night. Poor baby. He was worrying about stuff. He’s actually doing really well for the fact we’re not prayforming this whole month. In the past, he usually got super depressed and sad.
After recording, we sat with dad for an hour to clean up the endings of all the songs we’ve made. Dad said it’s fun and different to record like this, more freely and spontaneously. We’re not having to be on a budget and a schedule so we can do whatever we want to do. Lucky us. I’ve always lived above my dad’s recording studios since I was a baby, so it was easy to take it for granted when I was younger. Not anymore! I’m so grateful. How lucky could we be? Come home and take all December off. Eat what we want, have time to ourselves and record a new album? I mean, wow.
We’ll come to the studio again tomorrow to do two more things and then dad will burn us roughs of the album to listen to over the next few days. We’ll decided what needs to be kept and worked on and then go back and fix stuff next week sometime. It was dark when we had to call an Uber to go home. The first one couldn’t find us, so dad drove us to the end of his driveway in his tiny sports car. That time the car found us. We had soup Thoth made for dinner with mommie and I went back up to my room until midnight. Got to bed on time tonight.
