Stereobloom at the DEJA gig at Jerry's (April 8 2016)[i]

Waking up at 10:20 a.m.

Irish Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, Raisins, and Kefir. Yerba Mate Tea.

At the gym. I was prepared to work out but lunchtime basketball is in full force and they need a 10th man. So I play. My teammates keep dogging me the whole time, especially towards the end. I keep fumbling with the ball, making bad passes, and missing 80% of my shots. It's just not a good day for basketball.

On the drive home I feel defeated. I'm just in a bad mood now. I've got no confidence in myself.

Grilled PB&J. Fuji Apple. Oolong Tea.

Teaching my in-home lessons.

Back home. I help Ana cook us an early dinner: Sprouted Lentils with Onions, Carrots, Kale, and Quinoa. This is a combination of foods that I absolutely love – so hearty.

Off to the DEJA gig at Jerry's in Chesapeake. It's been quite a while since my last gig with them so it feels fresh. Those two fairly new prog-rock songs, "Roundabout" and "Foreplay/Long Time" still make me nervous. I wish I could do bluesy keyboard solos fluently but I simply can't so I flop through the organ solo. The Boston tune isn't too bad but Drew keeps that tempo so incredibly fast I can't keep up with the triplet notes. Otherwise, it was a fun show. A lot of people present. Drew's son, Tim, and his band, Stereobloom, perform a few tunes during the break.

Snacking on a Pear and a Presidente Pilsner.

Back home.

Sipping on Chamomile Tea and eating a Banana.

Sleep 3:30 a.m.
