Motivation is….Eh. Kind of like that. When it comes to motivating myself, it just isn’t possible. You know what, that’s a half lie. When it comes to motivating myself to do things that affect only me and no one else, I suck. Needless to say, you’d think that, by that logic, I’m this awesome guy who is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist*, part time superhero and full time advocate for the voiceless. I mean, that would be cool, but my motivation doesn’t quite work like that. Sure, all those things affect other people and not just me, but not really.
I like to do things that I know will help benefit people I care about. Needless to say, I’ll work my ass off just to help someone. I’ll faithfully go through the same routine every single day, and sacrifice the few things I would do for myself simply for someone else’s happiness. I’m speaking form experience here. I’m not just saying I would do it. I’m saying I will do it, and you can know this because I have done it before. I really have to start doing a few things for myself though. I guess I am. I have more words, and I know it, but my brain is feeling a little addled.
I suppose I could conclude the post, but In order to motivate myself to write a little bit more, I’ll tell you a bit about my day today. I acquired 4 much needed flash drives, though I still need one more (which I will hopefully get tomorrow). I got all of my pictures for my AP art class organized. Now I simply need to upload everything and hope for the best score I can get. I taught myself how to play seven-nation army on the trombone.** I did my daily running (that I’ve been slacking on), and a bunch of other things that you probably don’t care about. It really isn’t much though, it would just seem like a lot if I were to type it all out. And now I am rambling on about nothing. It’s funny to ramble about rambling, and, although this is completely irrelevant, there is someone at my school named Rambo. That’s a pretty cool name to have, isn’t it? Maybe I’ll talk about names in my next post. Who knows.
I’m signing off before this gets any weirder.
* I am a self taught pianist, though I play by ear. Slowly teaching myself guitar, and I also play the trombone. The flute and the violin are the only two other instruments I want to learn.
** If you happen to be a random trombone player who knows the song, here are the slide positions: 2 2 4 2 4 6 7; 2 2 4 2 4 6 7; 2 2 4 2 4 6 4 2 7. You can go from there.
