This time one week per post! Didn’t have enough time to make separate posts.
Project 365 of 2017: Days 43–47. Upcoming vacation and other events
Last week on the work before the vacation begins! You know what it means: tonnes of work and almost no free time for procrastination and other stuff. Listening to them.
Visited my favourite barber today. I know him for almost four years, and as he changes barbershops, I travel with him.
Well… I think that it’s a good time to say something about my upcoming vacation and the stuff I’m planning to do. I decided to abandon my idea of recording dedicated Katatonia album with covers. I’m not happy with this decision but this project is very time and effort consuming with almost zero output in the end, so I’ll probably make it in the future. Anyway, I’ll release Katatonia song I’m currently working on and publish it as a two songs mini-album with my Henry Mancini ukulele arrangement. During upcoming weeks I will record my own songs from the “Winds And Windows” album. I’m totally tired of working on it, and all I want is to release it as soon as possible.
A-a-a-a-and to the most important news I’m very excited to announce. I’m starting the work on an album with old and time-approved songs (Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and so on)! I’m planning to record at least 12 songs on my guitar and ukulele with vocals. Also, I’m planning to involve my friends in this project so we’ll be able to do collaboration songs together. Now I’m creating arrangements for all the songs.
Today I suddenly understood that tomorrow is the 4th anniversary of my working at the current Science Center. I used to be a fan of the engineering work but now these times are gone. Also, my vacation starts tomorrow. I’ve lost my working mood somewhere and wasn’t able to find it through all the day.
My vacation started with a predictable rain and with even more predictable Japanese lesson which unpredictable turned to be the last this summer because my Tsubame community was set hiatus until August. In the evening I’ve met with my patootie, and we dyed my hair. Now I’m grey again.
Spent a day in the central park of culture. It’s suddenly warm, almost hot! A lot of people here and there and everything is green. We walked under the trees for a couple of hours and then I went home. This park is pretty far from my flat, almost at the opposite end of the city, so I’m visiting it rarely. It has a big system of ponds and squirrels and stuff, and you can see the Gulf of Finland from here.
Totally worth it.
