Own It

illustration037 blog

“Take whatever weird little opportunity you can find and own it.”

Tara Schuster, author of Buy Yourself the Fucking Lilies

I read an article by Tara and my interpretation about the article is this: If you don’t have much to do when you start a new job, or you don’t feel like you are qualified, how can you stay busy, improve things, or show your worth? “Take whatever weird little opportunity you can find and own it…Best case scenario: someone cool will notice. Worst case? You’ll know and take pride, even if the task sucks.”

We can apply this to NOW in our personal lives. Take the time to call someone who you haven’t spoken to in awhile and get caught up. Cuz some of us certainly have the time.

Changes

day

Hello! I hope everyone had a nice weekend.

I made some changes to my site. I found out that my previous theme called Bueno (which I had been using since 2012) is no longer supported by WordPress, so I had to install a new theme. I hope you like it. The new one is called Penscratch 2. I chose it because I like having a sidebar.

Now that I have more time at home because of COVID, I am going to post on my blog more.

Take care and talk to you soon.

El Twanguero

I subscribe to Apple Music. As someone who loves music, I have no regrets subscribing. It’s worth every monthly charge of $10. I also subscribe to Apple News. I love reading about guitar players and all things guitar (especially acoustic), even though I am a novice guitar player. Using Apple News, I read Guitar World, Guitar Player, and Guitarist. From those magazines I learn about all kinds of amazing guitar players and beautiful guitars.

How many of us are getting through these COVID-19 days by listening to music? 

The music of Twanguero (Diego Garcia) is amazing. I am listening to the album called Pachuco. I love Twanguero’s guitar playing. I am going to work on seeing him live.

When They Were Lost

“I add my own love to the history of people who have loved beautiful things, and looked out for them, and pulled them from the fire, and sought them when they were lost, and tried to preserve them and save them while passing them along literally from hand to hand, singing out brilliantly from the wreck of time to the next generation of lovers, and the next.”

From the book The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
