Well I cannot complain about the past weeks that I had, but still, this day just gave me a good feeling. I had a lot of applications done again and finally also got some answers, like "thanks for your application. We will get back to you as soon as possible." and "Your application sounds interesting..." blah blah blah. The simple difference to all the other applications is that I finally know for sure, that they received my application and that I am involved in a kind of process. Makes it so much easier to continue writing. Weeks and weeks before: no response, nothing at all, which was admittedly quite frustrating.
So, first point on my to do list: check. Afterwards I went into the city for a short kind of concert in a record store and afterwards a signing session of the wonderful Joshua Radin. It was beautiful! Afterwards I even got the chance to exchange a few words with him, which was pretty amazing :-) His name might not sound familiar to everyone, but his songs are definitely well known to the Scrubs watchers among us, but could also be heard in "House" and "Grey's Anatomy". As he is a friend of Scrubs "J.D." Zach Braff, Radin's music also appears in Braff's movie "The last kiss".
I am just wondering how small things can make such a big difference: someone saying something nice, seeing a musician live and realizing how great he actually is, getting finally some things done, having fun in the leisure time... Adding up all the small nice things of today, the sum of it just put a big smile on my face.
