An Update and Jack's Mannequin

I swear, one of my New Year's Resolutions will be to post more consistently on this blog. In all fairness, it has been the end of the semester and it's been a busy couple weeks for me. In addition to final projects, papers, and exams, I went in to the sleep disorder clinic and was diagnosed with Restless Leg Syndrome, Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome, and Psycho-Physiological Insomnia. In other words, I don't know how to sleep.

But the semester is over and I'm home for break, so you'd think that means more posts. Well, I'm gonna try, but hopefully we all can understand how busy the holiday season can be. But I'ma try to work around it.

I've been writing in my creative journal more recently; I guess maybe the stress is giving me more ideas write down. I'm hoping to take screenwriting next semester (the class is full now, but I'm second on the wait list) and if I get in my plan is to write the screenplay on my DJ/Mixing idea, which I won't disclose here now, but I might discuss it more as I get more into writing it.

All right, well before I go I wanted to post a song that I've been pretty obsessed with ever since I first heard it. I don't normally put songs on repeat, but this is one that I absolutely have. Andrew McMahon just writes extremely powerful and emotional lyrics, and the music here is a perfect complement. This song is for anyone who's feeling down and looking for hope.
