in which… I start off the new year

I was this close to making it a resolution to blog every day this year. You know, the 365 day blogging challenge thingy. But I like to blog, and I decided after some thought that I would get so incredibly tired of myself if I took on that challenge… So I turned away from it. It was difficult… But I managed.

I got a Logitech c525 for Christmas [webcam, for you non-tech’s], so I plan to have some quick-like vlog’s out in a few days… But my poor Brennan [laptop] is about to finally kick the bucket, and until I get him a new battery, he can’t handle the awesomeness of my new webcammie. [sorry Brenny boy, but you know it’s true]

I realized [after the fact] that my New Year’s playlist consisted mostly of slow, non-pep tracks. Not the type of music you’d expect of a playlist for celebrating the coming of a new year anyways… Songs like, Make it Stop [September’s Children] by Rise Against, and Rough Hands by Alexisonfire topped the list, followed by Savior, My Worst Nightmare, Holiday, ect. It wasn’t that my New Year’s was sad, or depressing, or lonely… Directly the opposite actually… The mindset behind the day was, in one word [er, two], “low-key.” And so was the playlist.

Yes, in case you wondered, I have playlists for just about every type of event that occurs in my life… and if we have ever conversed, I’ve probably got one for you also…

But the more I think about it, the meaning behind the playlist is really my biggest resolution…

I want my 2012 to be “low-key.” It’s how I like to live… and I hope to continue to trot down the path, leading a “low-key” lifestyle.

And actually, here’s to hoping you take a minute to join me.
