At the start of the year, I took up jiu-jitsu and it has taken over my life so completely that I haven't really had much time for anything else. With training and work taking up most of my time, music has taken a backseat. It's sad, considering that I have loved music all my life - I've been singing since I was a kid, I dabbled with the guitar and the bass, and I've even written my own songs.
These days, music has been relegated to the background: I sing only in the shower, I discontinued bass lessons, and I just let my iTunes play music as some sort of accompaniment for work. I haven't had the luxury of time to really sit, listen, and learn new music.
|I miss our music. :(|
Last July 7, Manaha was supposed to play a set in #OPMLives, my friend Paul Pajo's event in Saguijo, but we had to cancel because of the weather. Days before that evening, I was really looking forward to the gig - I would start the day singing our songs, and during my walks and commutes, my ears would be plugged to my iPod so I could listen to our recordings. I even watched footage of old gigs on YouTube.
I really hope we get another gig soon. I miss singing, I miss music - so badly that it hurts.
