Yesterday I dropped my first recording of my rap track during my show last night. It’s not done, but it’s a complete product with verses, hook, etc. My show was highly receptive of it but also critical in a good way such that I am working on it this week to improve it.
I asked all of my fans and viewers for honest feedback and some of the comments I got back were very interesting, especially one in particular.
Boneicide, a long time fan of mine, said something like,
“I think the track is quite good, but to be honest I think you have too many creative projects in the kitchen.”
I read it, said thank you for the comment and put it in the back of my mind. Over the past night and day I thought about it some more though and I quite agree. I really do have too many creative projects going on. One I work on my stream every night, Two I blog every day, three I try to maintain some sort of presence on social media, and now four I am writing and producing raps?
And that is not even mentioning by day job and my family business matters that I still oversee.
So Boneicide really has a great point. Even though I may be good at all the things I do, (or not depending on your opinion) I don’t have all the time in the world to do them all.
I need to choose.
So I think what I will do is stick to my blog and my stream as my main points of outlet, and not let the rapping take up too much of my time because I don’t want it to consume my stream, since that is the most important project of mine.
But, I have to say, making the rap with TopShelf was really fun. I definitely am going to do it again and we are going to master this track and make it really cool. I would honestly love to make more.
But, I am listening to Boneicide. I will work much more consciously to manage my time and be real with myself and my project ambitions. After all, I need some time for eating and family/friends too.
Budgeting time is tough for me since I have that type of personality where I want to do everything because it is all fun and it is all interesting.
It’s a blessing and a curse at the same time, but it is my responsibility to keep it largely a blessing.
And thank you to my chat, tonight Boneicide in particular, as through your comments and feedback I have new, interesting topics to think and write about.
See you all tomorrow, keep smiling,
