Happy Friday everyone! It's a bit of a slow day, but I finally wrangled the DB I
was working with yesterday into submission, after quite a bit of breath holding.
(I hate touching production databases at all, so a full backup was in order) Now
I just have to work out how to get iOS to shut up about the 64-bit build when I
do it on the emulator. I'm not wholly convinced that it's simply an emulator,
instead of a build issue. I guess I'll find out in a bit. After that, it's one
more build, then it's off to the app store! It's exciting, and a lot of
responsibility for me. Perhaps I should argue for a raise after the release! I
don't know if I deserve it, but I want to try. I've been taking on more tasks
after all, so I think it's appropriate. I always feel like I'm undeserving of a
raise though. Hell, I often feel I'm undeserving of the job I have, but enough
about my insecurities! Time for some music!

Today I think I'll share a cover by Sarah Close. One of my favorite songs lately
has been The Chainsmokers' Closer, partly because it's an awesome song, partly
because I imagine that roommate back in Boulder really wants their mattress back
at some point.

Honestly, I've been wanting to get into music production, kind of for the first
time, kind of returning to it. I used to play around on the piano all the time,
I have a full-size keyboard in my apartment that I haven't touched lately. Hell,
I bought a fair amount of software too. Ableton Live Intro, FL Studio, and even
Serato, for those days I really just want to DJ. I've got a DJ controller, as
well as a Novation Launchpad and a decent soundcard. I've always played for a
little bit, never recording anything, but always just enjoying the sounds on my
own. Perhaps it's time to change that. Maybe one of these days I'll post my own
song in my incoherent ramblings on TTBP. Or maybe I'll just keep rambling about
my ramblings and my wants instead of what I do. It's part of why I'm still a
wantrepreneur instead of an entrepreneur. Anyway, catch you tomorrow townies!
