Rhymes, rhymes, everywhere.

Mike Lombardo gives a little tutorial on how rhyming works in songwriting, then goes on to show how rap music has changed from its early days, when only the last word in each line rhymed, to now, where Eminem tends to rhyme nearly every word in his songs.

Definitely a cool video to check out, if not to help appreciate the rap genre just a little more.

The End of the Year Approaches

The end of the school year is approaching very quickly. Just an 8-page paper and a Computer Science project stand between me and academic freedom.

Of course then I'll still have to work so that I'm not homeless. My hours at work will be getting cut back some, but hopefully I won't have to find a second job.

This has been such an eventful year. I don't even know how to write about it all in a single blog post.

I just cannot wait until I can have some free time in the summer and just be able to sit back and enjoy life. This past year has been "go, go, go" and I've had hardly any time to myself.

I've forgotten what it's like to sit and know that I have no assignments to do, no work to do that day, no appointments or events, just time to sit and breathe.
