In case anybody is wondering, I actually wrote the following post yesterday. So when I say today, I actually mean yesterday. I understand that this is not going to affect anybody, however I just felt that If I didn’t write this disclaimer I would confuse people, however I am now thinking that I have just confused myself.
So…..the partners at work have finally gotten back to me and have decided to give me what I want (i.e. less responsibility). My reply to this was “I’m not sure if I want that or if I would rather just resign, can I please have the week to think about it?”. So that’s what I am doing. If anybody would like to provide me with some profound advice, please feel free.
Today I am also working, on the first day of my annual leave, now that is dedication. To go along with my thinking, I have quite a big week ahead. Mainly because Knee Chin are going on tour. It’s only a small 3 show jaunt to Newcastle and Sydney, but I am quite excited. Mainly because I get to have some time off and play in a band that I really love. This is an interesting concept for me, as previously being in a band in which I wasn’t the main songwriter really got to me, as I felt I should be focusing on my own work. With Knee Chin this isn’t the case. I think it’s probably for a couple of reasons, firstly I love the guys. I enjoy practice and shows just because I get to hang out with friends. Secondly of course is the music. I love Aidens songs, and I love how we write together as a band, it feels free and easy and we don’t really have to think, we just play and it works. Well at least I think it does. The best thing is that we don’t tell each other how to play our instruments.
The tour should be interesting. I’m really anal about most things so I might drive the guys crazy. But I guess that’s all part of the fun. I have already laid down the rules, about smoking in the car. Makes we seem like the dad of the band. Luckily I play the dad guitar (hahaha dad joke). I might keep some sort of tour diary so expect something about the tour in later posts.
In other news….yesterday I had a photoshoot with my friend Ricky. It was interesting, I feel uncomfortable in front of a camera but he made it feel really natural cause he would just talk to me and I would forget that he was taking photos. I really love his photos, but we are both thinking that they might not really suit my style. I don’t really know. But it was a good experience all the same. After the shoot we went for Korean BBQ, it was really good but I ate way too much.
Today I feel a bit sick, maybe it was the food, maybe its just the weekend catching up with me. Speaking of catching up with me. I put my car in for service today, and I just got it back. Turns out that it will cost $570 to fix its various problems, the big problem is that they can’t do it prior to the tour. So fingers are crossed that my car doesn’t die on the way to Sydney.
