Cured! (At least almost)

Visiting the doctors paid off! I’m on my way to good health again. 😀 Both ears are still infected, but it’s just a question of time until they’re back to normal. I’m still banned from using headphones, which makes the bus rides to and from work a bit boring. At least I have the internets to browse. I’ll also have to disinfect my headphones properly, because apparently the bacteria that still resides in my ear is a tough bastard and will use every chance it has to infect me again! Life goes on…

Tomorrow I might finish mixing S.H.Arkfister. Depends on the key situation at work. After two and a half weeks away from work I’ve got a lot of self-set deadlines pushing on me.

No word from Espoon Kruunu regarding the flat they were promising us. The worst case scenario would be that they passed on us, because we didn’t send all the papers they wanted fast enough. Sofia learned to roll on her side today! It looks funny, the way she swings her legs to build momentum and then ends up on her side. 😀 I’m not sure if babies of that age should be doing it, but she seems exceptional in many ways!

Another day…

.. and another visit to the doctor! I’m counting six times during the last two and a half weeks now, plus one botched visit, because I wasn’t let in on a Sunday. At least one more visit after this one and I should be on the road to full recovery. My ears still hurt though, and apparently I should change my headphones (which cost abouts 170e, ouch) and use them less, if at all. Being in this business, I doubt that’s really possible, but I’m gonna attempt to use them less.

I think I finally got my GTD up and running again! More organized behaviour is to be expected.

Maybe I’ll have the time to finish mixing S.H.Arkfister next week, so we’ll be able to release it!

About Ear Infections…

I haz ’em. My ears have been infected a total three times during the last two weeks. Not separate infections really, but one damn resistive. At the moment my right ear canal is swollen to the point that everything sounds like there’s a party at the neighbour’s, haa. Hopefully, I’ll be cured by the end of this week, so I can get back to living, instead of this limbo of three days of work, three days sick leave, three days of work, etc.

We might’ve found ourselves a new apartment in Soukka! It looked nice from the outside, but we still haven’t seen it from the inside, so we’re reserving final judgement..

Time to watch the newest Family Guy! I like Mondays.

Monday Morning

Ach, another Monday. The ear infenction is still bothering me, I forgot my lunch at home, and I have shitloads of things I should do this week. I sent in the application to Espoon Kruunu, so now we play the waiting game, since I doubt we can afford a rent apartment from a private company. Been listening to a lot of No Doubt, Frank Zappa and The Mars Volta lately! Tragic Kingdom is such an awesome album.

Speaking of music: Mercalli XII’s first demo song is almost done! Yesterday I mixed it for some 6-7 hours and today I’m gonna go finish it up. I’m still unsure regarding the effects in the middle part, but I’m sure I’ll figure something out, if I sit in front of the mixing desk long enough. 😀 So, hopefully I’ll be able to put it up this week! I’ve also been writing some new material, which has been surprisingly effortless. I guess I’m getting back into the zone when it comes to composing.

By the way, 300 monthly visits on my website! 95% is probably search engines and spambots, but hey! It’s still an achievement, I guess. 😀

UPDATE: The Return of the Ear Infection..  That means probably no music for you!
