....First, I want to congratulate everyone who took part, and everyone who won -- especially Deadlyfishes, Samulis, Demolecule and Step. Awesome job.
I still want to finish the submission that I never got to finish on time: Bosa especially understood that ministry > competition, even if I had to give up my chances of getting $150. The heartbreak that I go through now will be very much worth it in the end. The submission I had intended to put in was a short musical setting to the prayer Libera Me, considering November is the month for All Saints, All Souls and Remembrance Day (or Veterans' Day in the US). But with November halfway through, I suppose the submission will have to wait till next year.
So what have I been doing during that period, you ask?
A few things.
1) Assignments for Wills, Legal Writing and Interviewing/Advising. I have also begun some form of revision for my Business Law and Practice exam, which is in two weeks.
2) The more important to my heart, and the very reason why I dropped out of Quest for the Crown in the first place: the CCM band I'm in -- Kingdom of Herts -- released a single, titled "Declaration". The song had been lying about in my drives for a year. Christo (Merlyne) originally wrote a full set of lyrics, but scrapped them. Then he and I sat down writing the current set of lyrics for the song.
If you'd like to hear it, you may check the single out over on YouTube, Soundcloud or Bandcamp. The lyrics are provided in all three. Christo sang Verse I, Richard handled Verse II and I handled Verse III. Finally after all that time, it's finally done and CD-ready!
That's it from me for now. If I don't update over the next two or three weeks, it's because of law school. But I'll try get something up within that period, somehow.
P.S. I'm considering getting a bodhrán... and actually playing it. Thoughts?
