Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence can mean many things like the golden rule of treating others as you would wish to be treated and taking the time to respect and love yourself so that can come more easily.  Positive affirmations (I keep mine posted right on my wall) and keeping a journal can help a lot.  Also, when a disturbing thought comes along rather than dwell on it acknowledge it and the way it makes you feel, do not judge your reaction as right or wrong, and eventually move on.  Or alternately you can store it in your own mental container for later examination and now focus on the life at hand.  Speaking as a person who sometimes struggles with obsessions and the accompanying hurts, habits, and hangups I know how much of a challenge this can be.  You'll get through it!

Emotional Intelligence can mean mixing it up like playing old-school computer games and listening to disco all morning, or making a few rad new necklaces, reading poetry or a new fantasy novel.  Those are all real world examples from my life in these past few months.  Mixing it up can be anything and it blesses the brain boisterously!

Emotional Intelligence can mean advocating for yourself and speaking up about stuff that bugs you.  It takes courage to advocate if you are afraid how people might react, but it makes a world of difference.  Then you can be heard and understood and a weight is lifted off your chest.

Emotional Intelligence can mean determination and persistence.  I have practiced, performed, and produced music since I was in middle school.  Now, leaning towards age twenty eight I work even harder to take my music to new heights.  I could have given up the dream years ago, but I kept working and I'll never stop.  When I am an old man I still will want to wow people and be on the cutting edge of innovation.  I want to stay relevant to the now!  Even making necklaces is something I have applied determination and persistence to.  I started that in middle school too!  I've been off and on with that hobby.  But, like music, I got good!  So good I've sold quite a few necklaces and CD's.

My life is an American success story and I owe much of that to developing my Emotional Intelligence!

P.S. here is a new song, which classifies as artistic expression, a primal top notch example of Emotional Intelligence-

What's Wrong With Being Confident?

Huzzah! Here I come to save the day- Fly Walka; supercharger of ultrayouth, erotic neurotic, the bling'd piano king, redneck jedi annnd modest narcissist:
}}{{Phrosty D 'the primal musician'}}{{

Christmaaaaas! ♫♫♫
I just got back from vacationing in Iowa with my folks and stepmother's family, they are awesome,
Soooo cool to expand my family.  Some luxuries were a super HQ home movie theater, delicious dinners, cards against humanity, and a wine tasting at a distillery.  I got to entertain everyone with my piano playin' boogie-woogie grooves and neoclassical improv!  Steff and her family are totes rad!

Near the end of this break I started fearing the unkown in some sense.  I have to be responsible again.  I have a lot to figure out in my living-evolution going forward.  It's Friday, I'm home, and suddenly that feeling is gone!  Just like Demi says: "What's wrong with being confident?"  I can handle anything life dishes out because I'm Donny freakin' Neu!!  I've come out on top time and again.  All my hard work and soulshine is paying off.  I'm healthier; have a great job; I'm taking guitar lessons; I'm gaining independence; annnd I still get to cut loose from time to time!

Eventually I will have new roomies too!

So yeah,
"What's wrong with being confident?"

An early riser

Sometimes I wake up early in the morning, even on days off.  On those occasions I can either fall back asleep or if I feel "wired awake" already then I use my extra time to get some music stuff done.  Like today for example, I woke up at about 6.  I tried just resting and listening to my MP3 player, but the music I listened to suddenly inspired me!  So I got crackin' on my laptop and added some new "vocal chops" to my song in progress.  This song is called "Indeterminate Aspirations" and will feature as one of the top tracks on ModdRN KlazziX CD release.  Yes folks, I'm still hyping it up; just not sure when I'll finally place the order.  There's still songs to finish and designs to be made.  Some may even like this future CD better than my debut, Phrosty Muzak!  I'm even getting T-shirts with the order!

I took the day off Friday and boy I'm glad I did.  This bum got to be a bedroom producer and player of video games all day.  I also did laundry and yoga which is less fun.

This isn't one of my new works, but for whomever likes binaural beats-

Brief Update

Saturday I enjoyed hanging out with my friends Luke and John.  We played Grand Theft Auto 5, watched Avengers Endgame, and had pizza for dinner.  Good times!

Sunday I had dinner with my dad and stepmom at China Buffet.  After they left I practiced guitar then watched the movie Office Christmas Party.  I wasn't sure if I liked it at first but it ended up being really funny!  Even a movie you watch alone can lift your spirits.

I am entertaining the idea of creating another mixtape for SoundCloud...

I have been chatting online with this act called GOHzur, sounds like they're stoked to remix one of my songs!  More on that later.  😁💪💣
