So, a couple of you commented on my last post and said you wanna hear me play guitar. *cough, cough* Samarah & Lily *cough cough*
I don't know why, but I obliged. ;)
(If you're reading this post in an email or blog reader, you'll probably have to visit my blog in order to see the video.)
The story behind this song is kind of strange. I had been upset about something - what on earth it was, I have no idea - but I was in my room, and I just picked up my guitar. I started playing random chords, and somehow they formed themselves into a song. I guess you could call it 'freestyling'. I had been recording on my mp3 player, but to this day I don't remember why. The first version I recorded was really, really rough. Because I was just playing to get the emotions out, a lot of the chords were messed up and buzzed. So I rerecorded it to sound better - but I still think it kept a lot of its feel. Hence the title 'In the Valley' - it was written when I was as far from the mountaintop as I could get. I hope that maybe it encourages you, if you're in the valley too. ♥ Remember, you're not alone in this fight. Jesus will walk with you.
I'd appreciate any comments you have! :)
Goodness gracious, there are so many! Writing, reading, Tweeting, playing guitar, listening to music...
I will not talk about the above subjects, though, since they're pretty obvious, and I feel like I'd just be repeating myself. So, I'll tell you something I've never told you before:
One of my hobbies is sitting on the couch in front of the television, watching movies or TV shows.
Okay, I only do it about once a week, or in the evenings to watch Dr. Quinn. But I really like watching movies. It's getting to the point where I'm running out of movies to watch! :-/ I love momentarily being transported to another world, and a lot of times, movies inspire me about things I can write.
Movies I've watched & enjoyed lately...
1. Julie & Julia (I kind of liked this one.)
3. Did You Hear About the Morgans?
Can't say that all of these would be good family movies. I watched all three of them with just my mom and I. (Mom, I love our mom/daughter times together!) But they're all really great movies with positive messages. Anyway, I'll stop my movie rant now. I kind of feel lame that that's my only hobby. I do crochet and do productive things, in sporadic amounts. ;) What are your hobbies?
Funny story... last night, I was up till midnight, searching for one particular notebook for about an hour. I was so up tight about it, because I was super inspired to write and I couldn't. (I have a thing about keeping certain stories in their own notebooks.) Finally, I just went to bed without it. Tonight, I was upstairs in my room and found my notebook on my windowsill, soggy with condensation. Sheesh, who leaves their notebook on the window sill? Apparently I do...
