I can live with that!

I'll just cut to the chase...

They want me to do a test run! There is a huge difference between singing in front of 2 people, vs. singing in front of an audience. So they want to see how I'd do in front of an audience with nerves flowing and all.

Call me, text me, or message me on facebook to get the details. I am SO excited about this!

Who actually enjoys "waiting?"


We've all experienced it one way or another. Whether it's for a holiday, vacation, or even a class to be over, we all look forward to something. Sometimes we wait for a change- which is nonspecific, and therefore quite annoying.

While I have been applying for jobs and taking the appropriate steps to searching for a job, nothing has quite come up. There hasn't been that one TEACHING job where I felt I was wanted or even considered.

Then one day I decided to search for bands who could use an experienced singer. That very search session, I came across an opportunity that I just couldn't pass up. So I emailed the contact, received a call the next day, and we talked about an audition. After the audition, I felt pretty good. I felt like I was considered. In fact, I felt wanted.

I know that I have to wait for them to make a decision, but it's getting increasingly difficult with every day I wait. Was I being lead on? Am I a top candidate? Or am I one of the backups that they need?

In this process, though, I have shifted my concentration from a teaching job to a performing job. I haven't been looking in these last two weeks because I have been so focused on practicing for this audition that I may or may not reap the benefits from. Did I just lose these last two weeks of job searching for nothing?

There's nothing I can do now except wait. And of course blog about it.

Thanks for the comments on my first blog (whether on here or in person). Stay tuned for what actually happens. I may make a sad box and a happy box. Where would the two bottles of scotch go?

Just Starting Out


Think about yours for a moment. Think about where you've been, where you are, and where you'd like to be. Not just physical places, but personal experiences. Are you generally pleased with who you have become? If the answer is yes, congratulations! If the answer is no, where have you gone wrong? What could you have done better? Maybe you are unsure of where you are, and if you are pleased with yourself. That may be because you have not experienced your life yet.

I am in a position where I really cannot examine my life, because I don't think it has started yet. Yes, I have been born, I went through the physical development process of early childhood, the discovery of self in elementary school, the ridicule of middle school, and the understanding of self in high school. I have received a Bachelor's degree, and 2 credits away from a Masters degree. Sounds like I have plenty to look back on, enough to analyze. I have gathered enough experience in my 23 years to know who I am and what I would like to accomplish. But I haven't gained the experience I would have hoped for at this time in my life.

Though I can give general life advice, that is not enough for me. I have worries, fears, and expectations for what's to come. That's why I started this blog. I'd like to post my worries and fears, goals and expectations, and have a way to look back and see how much I have changed (hopefully).

If this is my last post, thanks for reading. I must have found what I was looking for.
