I Suck at Doing what I Love

In 2014, I told myself that I would write more songs (well, more like lyrics, I suck at melodies) and cover more songs.

Both, I failed to achieve.

2014 was a year in which I wrote better and more emotionally impacting lyrics than ever, but I just didn’t write many.

I also made a YouTube channel (do check it out) and I swore to myself that I would film and record covers as well as originals.

I uploaded one. ONE. ONE COVER. which by the way was Yellow by Coldplay.

On the band channel I formed with Karen, we recorded and filmed one cover. ONE COVER. *sigh*. It was Try by Colbie Caillat

I feel so disappointed in myself. Which is why in 2015, my New Years resolution is to write more music next year as well as record more music. Both covers and originals. (Haha to prepare for this I changed my guitar strings to Gibson strings. So I can say I own something Gibson. I needed to change them anyways.)

Aliases

Recently, I feel like I have accumulated an alias. I feel fake. That the person who you see in public is not the me inside. I’m so insecure about myself and I have trust issues. Why? I became friends with a person who later betrayed my trust towards him in grade one. I don’t trust people. Especially ones I’ve just recently met. It doesn’t help that I’ve been bullied all through elementary school. it would be a complete lie to say that that hasn’t had a single affect on the person I am today. The victim blaming I had to face after that didn’t help one fucking bit either.

It Finally Happened!!

We finally formed that band that we have been talking about forming. And We actually did something productive and made a cover! We’ll put the links below. It feels good that we did this, because we’ve been talking about doing this for a long time now. We created this duo/band a month and half ago, and because of school, we couldn’t find the time to record a cover.

Buuuuuut, we finally took out some time and recorded a cover of Try by Colbie Caillat. It took us a few tries to make it decent (with me (Eva) threatening to slap Karen if she messed up one more time, joking of course), and we’re really proud of the end result.

The cover isn’t perfect, we are off key a few times, and I hit the guitar with my pick a couple times, but that’s what we like about acoustic covers, that there’s no reverb, or autotune. If we’re going to record acoustically, we will keep the vocals raw. The video, obviously, will be edited.

We will be recording/filming more covers soon, and we will also be writing our own songs to put on your YouTube channel. So stay tuned!
