Music You Should Get [of the Week]

After all, it's up for free download.

The Gathering released a new song off of their (still to be announced) 10th studio album. The track is called "Heroes For Ghosts", and the song captures elements from the old Gathering's music (prior to former lead singer Anneke van Giersbergen's departure) and well as incorporating the style that developed with current lead singer Silje Wergeland.

One of the main reasons I love The Gathering is because of how mellow and beautiful their brand of rock is. The music atmospherical, and I'm transported to a very creative place when I listen to their music, and that is why they are one of best bands I listen to. After all, they are the band responsible for my blog's name. You can download the new song straight from The Gathering - for free, and I whole-heartedly recommend it, and also that you check out at least one of their many previous albums.

A Long-Needed Update

I'm not doing so hot with maintaining this blog. I always end up neglecting it. Life is so beautiful and interesting and I just want to share it.

Well, the end of the semester went well, and I am pleased to announce that I passed my first graduate review and had a very positive response to my work. I want to take better pictures soon, but here are a couple for now:

In other news, I will departing on my long anticipated trip to Ireland in the next couple of days, and I hope I will have lots to share. The only foreign country I have been to prior to this is Mexico, so it's a brand new experience.

New musical experiences include Chromeo and the new Within Temptation and Leaves` Eyes albums. I would like to review the new albums, so here is hoping I will actually do it in the near future.

I also hope to start journaling on a daily basis. A professor suggested it to me, and if I produce anything good, I'm sure I will be sharing.

Other than that, I've been looking at a lot of interesting things online, and I will hopefully post some of the things I found by this weekend.
