Getting Musical Up In Here

Do you ever find that it’s hard to live up to your own expectations? I feel like sometimes I have this long to do list of outrageously awesome, creative, diverse things that I’d like to do. Even though it’s physically impossible to accomplish it all in one day, or one week, or even in one month, I unrealistically stack it all up until it’s this ridiculous leaning tower of crap.

I’ve just had to come to terms that sometimes having sky scraper expectations can be more harmful than helpful. Starting a million projects isn’t always beneficial because you end up giving kaleidoscopic snippets of attention to millions of things, instead of dividing the pie three or four ways and creating larger individual masterpieces.

I mean, bigger slices of pie are always the answer.
Always. Bigger. Slices.

It just tastes better.
Especially if the slices are larger.
And if it’s home made.
And if it’s strawberry rhubarb pie…

I’m getting too far away from the pie analogy, aren’t I? Shoot. Well pie or no pie, I apologize that I have been absent lately. Do you forgive me? *Puppy eyes* Great. Fist bump

One reason I’ve been absent is because I’ve been working pretty diligently on a new article for LA Family Magazine. It’s not the weekly column I write, although I have had to work on that as well because my next piece in the Learning The Hustle column about Life After College goes live Friday.

This piece was unique and had me right in my element.

LA Family Magazine asked me to cover a concert in the Boston area, and when I saw that The Temper Trap was playing at The House Of Blues I nearly fell out of my chair.  The Temper Trap is an Australian band I fell in love with during my first visit to Australia in 2009.

You may have heard one of their bigger hits titled “Sweet Disposition.”

LA Family set me up to cover the concert with press passes, including shooting photos from the press pit.

If you know me/stalk me/have been reading my blog for a while now, you know that there are few things I love more than MUSIC, AUSTRALIA, and PHOTOGRAPHY.

Apparently pie is one of those things.

The article went live today and three photos I snapped from the press pit have been chosen. I’m going to give you lads and ladies special treatment and show you a few of the shots I took that weren’t published in the article.

After my splendid time spent in the press pit shooting pictures with my trusted Nikon D3000, I spent the rest of the concert hanging by the side of the stage and still had a stellar view. See?


My article can be found {{HERE}}
Feel free to check it out, like it, comment on it, or just give it a read if that’s what you’re comfortable with. This might actually be one of my favorite pieces that I’ve ever written.

Yes. That’s right. EVER

  2. I love the Temper Trap! Do you think their new stuff can possibly match their first album? I mean, it was pretty amazing.

  3. I just came across your blog today from a post on Amanda Close’s Facebook, and I’m really enjoying reading through your blog. It’s different than a lot of the blogs out there, kind of refreshing:)….I just started my own, so you should check it out!
