Hotel Costes

Yep, that's what I'm listening to right now. It's kind of like Buddha Bar, so it works perfectly for me during work. I was getting tired of Buddha Bar, it got to the point that I was singing along to the songs (which breaks my concentration) so I figured it was time for a change.

For all of you who've been reading my posts, you know that I love to talk about a point and go on and on and on about it. I blame Stephen King for this because his 1000+ page novels was the reason I write the way I do now. He can talk about walking from one end of the room to the other for a full 10 pages! So I'm really not as bad as you think. The other day I was talking to my band mates and they were joking how I was talking for 10 minutes about something that could have been summarized into 2 sentences. In fact, this is not the first time someone's told me this :P

So today's Day 10 entry, I decided to keep it short and get to the point... starting.... now!

I went to the AliveNotDead 1-year anniversary party on Sunday night and it was really good! I got to meet a lot of people and see some of them even perform! It was at CLIQ, the same club I'd been performing the previous 2 nights (Friday -- Chinese, Saturday -- English) so it was refreshing to be able to go back stress-free :). It's been a while since I actually went to a party to be honest. Most of my weekend either go to comedy or else my own things that I try to catch up on that I missed out during the week. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, but as I've said before, I'm greedy, I was to do them all!

It's already Thursday! Yikes where did the last 4 days go!? And to make things worse, Monday was public holiday! Where did that go!?

So I was in the shower earlier on thinking how I'd take my self-decided 30 minutes break. Should I go out for a walk? Should I just watch some comedy or should I just clear my room and plan what I'll try to get done tonight? Then I finally decided that I'd just go with the flow, after all, it's a break, why should I plan my break time!?

So today's Day 10 entry is about letting things just flow. It's kind of like everything in life, you'll notice the re-occurring topic for everything is to make sure we're relaxed while doing it. GTD says that you're only as productive as you are relaxed. Drumming reminds me that when you tense your muscles up, you're inhibiting their natural motion. Working out requires me to tense, relax, tense, relax my muscles for maximum impact. Comedy taught me that the more nervous I am on stage, the worse I'll perform. The more relaxed I feel, the better I'll flow in general and the better my overall performance! So here I am, typing my last sentence before I go off and just, literally, shockingly, relax.... this may sound weird, but I'm actually feeling weird about relaxing, so here goes!
