music for my friends

So, Martin Sexton is one of my favorite artists of all time.  I don't know if I have ever seen someone more talented or better live than this man.  I've been sick for a few days and haven't had much to contribute, but I thought I would share a couple songs with you.  I have listened to these everyday for the past week and wanted to put them out there for everyone else.  Hope you enjoy.

Surprising Vacation

Again, its been a while since posting.  This time I have a real excuse.  I was able to take my first vacation in over 2 years.  Unfortunately, it was only for one night.  I went to Louisville Kentucky of all places.  A friend of mine was there for work and invited me up to hang out.  It is one of my best friends in the world that I hadn't seen in over 3 years so I jumped at the opportunity.  I couldn't wait to see my friend, but Kentucky seemed like the worst place on the planet to go for my one vacation.  I could not have been more wrong.  Louisville is awesome.  It's a beautiful city with lots of cool little districts.  We went to an amazing park, an Irish Pub, and a great dinner.  This was honestly the most fun I can remember having.  I was too quick to judge.  Its amazing what getting away even for a day can do for your soul.  I felt like a new person when I came back.  If you are having a crappy week or just feel like you are in a rut, just get out of town. Go somewhere new and make a new memory.  It will do wonders.

What's New

I haven't been on here for a little while.  Its been a pretty uneventful week, so not a lot to report.  Gym, work, home as usual.  But, this time I am requesting to help.  I've been getting burned out on my workout music and am looking for suggestions on something new.  My usual playlist includes some pretty cliche stuff i.e. rage against the machine and eminem.  Some other examples are Mirwais, the White Stripes, lo fidelity allstars, a perfect circle, and oasis.  Im not particularly proud of it, but it is upbeat, somewhat angry, and motivates me.  I am hoping that you all can suggest something that does the same for you.  It is very much appreciated.

New haircut, new man

I got my first haircut in 4 months today.  It had gotten down to my shoulders and I realized that I looked extremely creepy.  So, today I cut about 7 inches off and I actually look like a normal person again.  Not only that, I felt better for some reason.  Now its time to start making those other changes in my life I had talked about recently.  Unfortunately, being stressed out, I've been smoking more than ever.  It's going to be the toughest challenge, but I think I can swing it.

Just another Sunday.

So, after not being able to fall asleep until 4 a.m. and waking up to cats meowing at my door at 7 a.m., I had the brilliant idea to go to the gym to try and wake myself up.  What should have been an hour and a half workout took two hours and fifteen minutes. I probably zoned out about 100 times throughout.  I feel like I'm in a dream right now and I still have to go to work tonight.  On top of that, I have to be up really early to get to my other job tomorrow morning.  The only silver lining is the new Breaking Bad tonight.  4 cups of coffee at work will hopefully keep me from falling asleep.  Hope you all are having a more rested and relaxed Sunday.
