Thor

Sunday Recap – Nov. 6, 2016

Thor
Thor

Without a doubt, my favorite part of this week was Thor’s health returning to normal. He had been having stomach problems because the doofus ate a plastic bag. Haha! I laugh about it know because he is thankfully ok. He pooped it out (sorry, TMI) last Saturday and by Wednesday he was back to pooping normally. And back to eating normally, too. It’s always sad to see a lab that is not hungry. It feels wrong.

It’s not the first time he’s scared us. I remembered this occasion from last year…

Here’s the full Thorday playlist on YouTube.

Twitch

On Thursday afternoon, I finally found the courage to sing live on Twitch. I had streamed Skyrim the previous Saturday, but singing on this platform is something I’d wanted to do for a long time.

I have a tendency to always imagine the worst when it comes to performing live. I feel so self-conscious and nervous. Little did I know that it would feel as awesome as it did. The people in the chat were wonderful and being in their company alleviated my worries. Such a great experience!

I practiced a holiday song I want to record, then sang Dragonborn Comes and others. Here’s a vid of that! If you’re on Twitch, you can follow me here!

Reading

I managed to stick to my reading goals this week. I finished a book called Rich Dad, Poor Dad. A book that I got as a gift years, YEARS ago, but I didn’t read it then. Very bad. It would have been very helpful to know this stuff, but to be honest, I’m not sure it would have made as much sense back then as it does now.

The pages are old and yellow, and I actually got to physically highlight it. What a beautiful feeling. Haha! I love Kindle, but will always miss real books.

The second book I’m reading is called Celebrity in Death by J. D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts). I used to read this series back in college and hadn’t kept up with it since then. It’s sweet to revisit familiar characters. To read and remember their nuances that are to this day constant. Hope to finish it next week.

Music

After practicing Angels We Have Heard on High on Twitch, I realized the arrangement I had been imagining could actually work. I would love to record it this week so that I can share this song during the holiday season.

Sidenote: As Thor and I were walking home from the park, I think someone had a fireplace going because it smelled like Christmas. I can’t believe the year is almost over.

Ok, so I hope to record this song. I also spent some time finalizing the lyrics for an original Skyrim bard song I wrote years ago. Here’s a quick clip I had shared back then. I’m happy to report the lyrics are officially done! There were a couple of things that were bugging me and they have been resolved. Wooo!

I hope to also record this, if not this week, then the next!

And… hmmm… This is all I could think of this week.

I’m really looking forward to journaling and these Sunday Recaps!

Thank you for reading!

Happy New Week! Hehe.
Malu

    Really nice to share this moment of practical with your fans, but i’m not really a fan of Twitch, so i missed it :/. By hearing you playing the guitare, it makes me want to practice hard the piano again, i really abandonned it for a too long period (maybe about 8 or 10 years i didn’t practice it seriously ….). I know I have the means to have a very good level to play the piano but i don’t know why i don’t play the piano daily … maybe as for audio books, it’s just about will … By hearing you, it gives me the motivation to playing it again :).
    I think I’ll try to play “I Follow the Moon” on the piano, by rewriting it 🙂 (i have the perfect pitch :p)

    P.S : Even if i’m an atheist, there is no time for Christmas songs ^^.

      Hi, Zanktom! It’s so great that the video inspired you to start practicing piano again! I think of my favorite things about music is that it’s always there for us when we need it. I hope you are able to revisit the piano! And you are very lucky to have perfect pitch! I have a friend with this skill and we would torture him for HOURS asking… “What note is this?” and he would always answer correctly. Hahahaha! Poor guy, but it was such an impressive ability for those of us without it! 😀 Thanks for reading and for writing!
