Ever wonder what it takes to get a recording home studio set up?

In part 1, I got my desk and computer set up. In this, I focused on getting my recording set up back up and running. From the interface and studio monitors to mic and acoustic treatment, there are a bunch of things needed for a home studio. Actually, every set up is unique and different things work for different people…this is just what works for me.

This will be the temp set up for now as I figure out what to do about the long-term one.

Remember, the first step is always getting started!

“Cause sometimes you just feel tired, feel weak, and when you feel weak, you feel like you wanna just give up. But you gotta search within you, you gotta find that inner strength and just pull that shit out of you and get that motivation to not give up. And not be a quitter, no matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face and collapse.”

– Eminem on “Lose Yourself

As I’m getting older, I’m realizing the importance of mental strength. The ability to motivate yourself, to talk yourself out of a rut, and to get back up after hitting obstacles…all those things require willpower that comes from within. It’s not easy to find it, but if you can you’re unstoppable.

Before getting too ahead of myself, what is up? Welcome to the FIRST Opinions Column of 2018. It feels great. If you’re new to the website, this is the place where I talk about anything and everything on my mind. If you’re returning, WELCOME BACK! Thank you for rocking with me and I hope you’re excited for an exciting year. And with that said, let’s talk more about mental strength and why it’s on my mind.

One of the most important things is just getting started!

I spent some time to get my set up back up and running. From the desk to computer to recording equipment, I got everything hooked back up. I ran into some issues at the end, but nothing major that I wasn’t able to figure out. This will be the temp set up for now.

Remember, the first step is always getting started!

In part 2, I’ll spend more time with getting the recording part set up (including the mic and acoustic treatment).

So I visited Downtown Orlando for the MexOne Tribute at the Social. While there, I got a chance to watch breakdancing, beatboxing, and hip hop performances. Wordworth also showed up and performed. It definitely was a good night and the Ozone was in full effect.

With 2018 in full swing, I wanted to share a video I did about the importance of setting goals (especially for 2018). This isn’t a rap video either lol. In my opinion, if you’re not setting goals you may not have a clear direction and be relying on luck instead. Luck isn’t always a bad thing, but it also means you may not get exactly what you want either. By aiming for something, you have a place to reach. And even if you don’t reach that place, you still will have come mad far.

I also wanted to share my 5 goals for 2018. Let’s help each other accomplish these goals we set for ourselves!

So tell me…what are your goals for 2018?
