A read on San Antonio de Areco and the festival I'd attended

Here is another blog that relates to my adventure in San Antonio de Areco:

It has me in it! I paraded around the festival with a British bloke named James, who wrote this blog. He's still down in South America somewhere, so I figure I'd post this to read. He did a better job writing about that weekend than I.

I have decided to head back down this year to Argentina. Where, is a different story. I think I will revisit a lot of people throughout some of the towns, and check out some new places as well. I'd like to be housed this time, not hosteled!

Today is my super nostalgia for Argentina day again, revisiting the music which has its strong emotional ties for me, as well as some of the few reclaimed pictures I scrounged from my camera's locations on computers in Argentina. This is one of my favorites - a broken-down car parked on a side street in Palermo.

I really need to get out of the U.S.

I am currently in a swirling maelstrom of major events - I envision my mind a giant pitch black space with a disassembled puzzle in it. My goal is to put all of the pieces together in some sort of logical manner that results in successful progression in my personal life. I have a lot of stuff going on, so I figure I need to vent about it all via writing. This is still what I define as a life journey, in case you'd wonder why I'd write such an article.

I have a list of stuff to do this month that includes (but is not limited to):
  • Submitting several school portfolios/documents/moneys
  • Moving out and moving in (happening tomorrow)
  • Editing my zombie movie (from one blog past), Dyin' For You.
  • Recording drums, vocals, and percussion on Oddwood's next upcoming album, Rocktopus.
  • Organizing time with friends
  • Organizing some free time for exercise and adventure.
  • Figuring out how to read many books, research many topics and watch many movies, without sacrificing too much sleep (unlikely prevented).
There are other things that are not listed, these just being the main ones. Plenty of stuff to fit into my life schedule. As I always say, in mantra-esque fashion, ab chaos, ordinem. Or, "from chaos, order" in Latin. Everything that is chaotic and "by chance" in my life, all comes to order in due time, which is eery to me, its perfection. It's also surprisingly eery that the word eery is listed as incorrect spelling of some other word, like leery. Are we trying to make vanish a great word? But I digress...

That being said, I'd like to pack up and move down to Buenos Aires, sooner rather than later. I just realized, upon looking back on a few of the photos from my trip, that it is probably likely that I can return during summer, for a month perhaps. It would be winter for that southern side of the world, and many places are excellent for visiting, aside from the unavoidable winter tourists that come with the season. Who knows? Maybe I can head down to Patagonia in its peak excellency. I'd like to bring with me a High-Definition camcorder upon my return, making up for the digital camera from Trip 1. And maybe by then I'd have another Powershot A110 (the camera that was heisted on the subte system in Bs.As.). I'd plan to be filming a lot, so I could bring a tripod and scout out some excellent places to shoot.

This post is short, but it helped me release a bit of built-up frustration. I will look back on this years from now and read my entertaining mind flows. Let's see how much of this actually comes to fruition!

I am definitely looking forward to an amazing year with TakeLessons, America's largest music lesson company, as well as an overwhelmingly excellent year of fun-filled, action-packed adventures with The Dread Crew of Oddwood! Pleasure Faire, hopefully Disney negotiations, national tour? Let's go!

All for now, more for later; until then, this is Drew Peters.
