I watched a wedding video produced by my friend and thought to myself, "What if everyone treated everyday like their wedding day?"
Not in terms of cost, preparation, and the grandeur, but the small moments that wedding videos tend to capture.
Maybe tangentially, I believe things become popular because they're relatable. Instead of watching other people enjoy their lives and living vicariously, maybe we should make our own moments. I am guilty of spending too much time following the lives of other artists and vloggers, and it gets me mildly existential sometimes.
I recently picked up the ukulele, and I'm enjoying it, not only because it's my first time ever making any sort of music, but, like all creative endeavors, it brings an opportunity to reflect on my own actions. Music is great because it's highly accessible to any person who wills it, both to listen to and to produce it.
It's a lot of fun. I've always wanted to learn those clichéd cover songs, like La Vie En Rose, Somewhere Over the Rainbow, or Sweet Pea. I realized that to the average internet consumer, it's all too easy to roll our eyes at yet another cover of one of those songs (like Classical music's Four Seasons by Vivaldi or Canon in D, but it's always a personal pleasure to play it.
