I've been meaning to get back to my 100 Greatest Albums blog, but have found it a bit difficult to devote the same passion and effort toward it.
You see, there have been a lot of changes in my life in the past couple of months--Big Changes.
I decided to move to Nashville, having visited Music City only twice before. This meant packing everything up...a pretty significant cross-country move...and then an intense job search. Layer onto that, I'm looking to buy a home for the first time in my life.
On my birthday this year, after being in Nashville for less than a month, I got a job offer (which I later accepted) and had our offer on a home in East Nashville accepted. Also, I'm starting a Master's Program in Data Analytics at Boston University in September.
All that to say my mind has been compressed with a new kind of stress. Don't get me wrong--it's a good and welcome stress--new things for which I am grateful!
I just got to the point today where I realized that I need to give myself some time to focus on getting those things started right...and once I do, there will be space for continuing the blog project, and--even more importantly--working on new songs.
I plan to kick the blog off again in early October.
New songs? They're coming. I'll post as soon as there's something interesting to share.
