Hello again! It is the month of March and as always, that means another round of Liner Notes. I cannot believe we’re heading towards the end of the first quarter of 2017 already. Time has been passing at a ridiculously quick pace, but it has been filled with some pretty cool moments. Obviously last month’s Liner Notes was about my trip to New York and January’s was all about getting back into the swing of things, but this month doesn’t really have a particularly strong theme to write about. What a great way to get you enticed into reading more. Nice work Adam.
One thing I’ve subconsciously marked in my mind is to have each month of the year stand out with a particular moment. January was all about relaunching the blog as one with tons of white and hints of blue, February was all about heading to The Big Apple, and I’ve already got “don’t have an existential crisis on your birthday” pencilled in for June. A particular bad trait of mine is not truly embracing life too much, and allowing time to blur into one swooping motion of going to work, playing FIFA and wonder what all my friends are up to.
So this month’s “moment” is learning to drive. This will be my third attempt at getting on the roads after becoming too poor at 18 and too stressed at 23, but maybe with the added pressure of turning 24 looming closer it’ll help get me motivated enough to pass it all before becoming a complete failure. It doesn’t help that Facebook regularly updates me with people who have had less time on this planet passing their tests each week, but hey, maybe that’ll help.
Another bad trait of mine is not keeping in touch with people unless they’re a part of everyday life. I haven’t seen/spoken to buddies since NYE, and that’s not good. With increasing age comes decreasing time before the “move out/pay bills/get a dog/settle down” movement begins, so now’s the best chance for me to go and hang out with people for a while.
Breaking up each month with a dedicated focus has made 2017 pretty good so far, and I’m looking forward to looking back and seeing what has been achieved in the last twelve months. I could be driving a car with a new promotion with more money and getting paid to write about music, or I could be sat in my pants with a huge belly eating pizza. Who knows, either way sounds pretty good.
And that’s about it. Music blog wise I’m very happy with how things are turning out for Sounds Good three months in. The blog has received a lot of love and attention, especially over the last week or so, and is continuing to grow as more listeners and readers stumble across it. We’ve been working alongside some truly great artists this year too, and have some plans in mind for maintaining those relationships, as well as creating some new ones too. Goodbye forever! Until next month. – Adam xox.
