NEW TRACKS UP!! + #52 "Write an upbeat track" Accomplished

Not one, but TWO tracks are now ready for release! I am very very excited about this, because though anyone can dream, it's not easy to accomplish the baby steps that come in between the start line and the actual goal. And though it may not be anything fancy, it is definately one dream come true: one of the not-so-big ones on the way to the big one. And I am thankful for the people that have helped me and supported me in making this happen: from my friends who've always encouraged me, to the producers that made the tracks for me and worked on it with me cuz they have faith in me. I couldn't ask for more, and more than anything, I can't express my gratitude to all of you who have been by side on this journey of mine =) It will never be a lonely one, no matter how tough it may get... So yeah: wish I knew how to post music on this thing, but for now, you can hear it at: Forceworld using the player that's on my page (you should sign up too if u got time ;) ) or on my myspace though it think it takes a lil while for the actual songs to appear on my page... so if you don't see them ("This Time" and "Surrender") then check back in a lil bit...

Thanks all! More to come soon ;)

#91 Post a Video on YouTube

Yes, I figured I'd get this outta the way... It ain't fantastic or anything fancy, but yeah... enjoy.

I was in a sentimental mood, so I dedicate this song to...You =)

Ernie Halter used to do this thing where he took requests from ppl and would record covers, but make them kinda into his own style... anywho, I thought maybe it'd be cool to do something like that, but then it's not a very original idea... so... if any of you have any ideas on types of videos to post that would highlight my music (NO, no nudity, porn, or anything scandelous).

One of these days, I will have made a music video for one of my own songs, and it will def be posted here =) But in the meantime: baby steps =)

#88 Hug Dad

Like the "hug mom" goal, "hug dad" was just as a big deal. And when not better than for his birthday? Okay, so his birthday was on April 10th... and my post is almost a month since, but I'm gonna place the blame on the ppl who took pictures, cuz I was waitin on them to post those pix so I could snag them for myself haha. And show you, all three readers of mine, my present to dad. Though, it should be a natural part of my life, to want to hug my parents, but like I explained in the "hug mom" entry, my family didn't grow up the most affectionate family out there...

Though, growing up, I was definately Daddy's Little Girl. And oh did I maniuplate and utilize that as much as one daughter who sees her father once a week can. And dad gave me lots of hugs when he was home, so I can't say that we were never a "huggin it out" family. But since then, puberty and independence happened, so there is a distance that has grown between us, but at the same time, a development of a different kind of mature bond. His worrying went from diaper changes and babysitters, to boys I date/finding me a rich husband and money I (need to, and am currently not able to) make haha. I remember whenever I wanted something though, like a new toy or, *ahem* in my teenage years, MONEY, haha, I would always say what he loved to hear: "Daddy daisuki!!" Which is "I love you, dad!" in Japanese. Sometimes I find myself looking back to those days, reflecting, missing, and cherishing the memory of the simplicity and easiness of bein Daddy's Little Girl... Now I'm Daddy's Little Helper at the restaurant (hahaha) but it's all good. It's all outta love.

So here's to you dad! Otanjyobi Omedetou! (Happy Birthday!)
