It’s been a while since I’ve made a blog post. I’ve been working in the background. Making songs on a regular basis and learning new software.
Here’s some updates I’d like to share with you since my absence:
I’ve noticed that I’m more creative when I wake up earlier than later in the day. The days where I wake up early are the days where I grab some coffee and start working on music.
I moved to my own place -finally- and it has been great having my own space to dwell on my creativity and just be alone.
I released a 3 song EP under my side project Phantasiis, which is titled, ‘Take It Easy’. You can find it here .
I’ve been doing freestyle rap in Spanish and recording myself doing it. It’s been really fun and sometimes I do get in to a flow state.
I’ve bought a microphone that is surprisingly small, but it works for practice purposes.
I’ve got into console gaming, I’ve been playing Apex Legends on Xbox for a few weeks and I’ve been loving it.
Finally bought a TV -never owned one- soon to realize that I don’t really use it to watch anything. It is more to listen to music and occasional YouTube videos.
I realized that I haven’t learned anything about music as of lately, rather I’ve been applying what I know and find new ways to work with that.
I could not move forward to my Masters Program in Data Science due to time constrains.
Instead, I got accepted into a Certificate program for Business Intelligence Analysis by UC San Diego. It has been a great experience and excellent community.
I noticed I’ve reached a point in life where I don’t need much to live comfortably and make music. All I really need is a computer, mouse, and good headphones.
I’ve been having bad insomnia but it has been getting better.
I got into audio books and I really enjoy listening to something interesting while doing something rather mundane. It turns that task into an experience.
I stopped meditating. I don’t have a clear reason why as of now. I feel I’ve reach a point where I meditate through music. I noticed when I was in my meditation period for several months, I didn’t create many songs. Something to think about. Will write about it later.
Lastly, I’ve been thinking a lot about this website. I believe this blog and writing in general is a great outlet for me to express my thoughts and clarify my mind. Hopefully some of this content brought value to you at some point. However, I feel that Ernesto Delirium is not a name I want to keep using for the blog. The main reason is that I don’t plan to release more songs under that project anymore. It was a great experience, but I’d like to focus all of my energy to Phantasiis and keeping it consistent.
Therefore, I’ll change the website address to reflect that change. I don’t know how long the process is going to take, but I’ll make the necessary changes. Also, changing the website design would be a plus, too.
More music to come, especially instrumental hip-hop. I’d like to get back into writing articles about psychology and music as well, time will tell.
I hope you are doing well with all of the chaos going in the world.
Take it Easy,
