Feeling Lazy . . . kinda

So, again, I fail to surprise myself with not really keeping up the blog thing like I said I was going to try to do. Ugh, so I haven’t posted anything since August.

You know, I’ll be honest; I really hate talking about myself. It’s kind of the same way I really hate listening to my songs (unless I’m being completely over-critical of myself and therefore will listen with morbid curiosity and disdain), or looking at pictures of myself . . . It’s all the same. I try to avoid seeming being vain, I guess. Sure, maybe sometimes when no one’s looking, I’ll take a little longer look in the mirror, trying to decide if I’m actually someone to be considered “pretty” or not. . .

I settle for knowing I’m not ugly, instead. Calling myself pretty makes me a little uncomfortable.

So stuff like that. I ask myself, “Who would want to read ridiculous, inane things that happen to you in a blog that’s barley even known to exist by your own friends, anyway?”

The answer? “Good question . . .”

But for shits and giggles, I’ll do a little bloggy thing right now:

I’ve been taking lessons again with a voice teacher here in Taos. She’s also the conductor of the community choir, which I joined. And I’m taking an additional group voice class on Thursdays, with the same nice lady. So my schedule went from being a derelict bohemian playing video games to working hard as an actual singer three days a week.

Yay, progress.

And even better is that it seems like my new teacher really likes my voice and is very encouraging. She’s even mentioned that since I started only about a month and a half ago, I’ve already improved. Now I just have to work on recordings so I can post them up here and share them with . . . whoever . . .

I Got It!

So I think I’m starting to get the hang of this wordpress thing. I mean, it took a little trial and error, and some panicking did occur . . . like when I thought the whole thing had failed after I just finished setting up the darn thing. 500 Internal Server errors caused more screams than . . . I can’t think of an appropriate analogy. But that’s okay! Because I have my WordPress website up and running.
Yay! Okay, so now . . . what to talk about? I mean, other than getting all jazzed up about the Radio Station Owner guy, and consequently finding out that all 12 demo packets were replied to in positive fashion. That was supposed to be last Monday. We actually haven’t heard from the guy since before that. Oh, well. Keep it real, is what I say! So in the meantime, I’ll just be recording tracks at home and adding them to the Music page.
If anyone has any good suggestions for a better way to display a music playlist in a wordpress theme, please let me know!
