So Tuesdays are when I have my private lessons for voice. Tuesdays are usually good days. But for some reason, yesterday was just a less than stellar lesson. I’m now going to tell you that I’m extremely disappointed in myself and felt I should have done better! (must be perfect!! Always! Even if it’s completely unrealistic!!)
Anyway, I just felt I could have put more energy into the lesson. My teacher is always great and positive for me, and she helps me significantly. But I was so tired, and my high notes were squeaking, and I wasn’t carrying through the syllables of the Italian aria, and . . . well, basically I think I sounded like crap, and came home feeling slightly unfulfilled.
In the meantime, I like to look up weird things like UFOs and various other mysterious things. I did that before going to the lesson, so maybe that was partly on my mind, but I didn’t think it was entirely that distracted. Maybe I really was just overtly tired. The winter depression thing doesn’t help either. It’s getting darker earlier, and that helps to change people’s moods sometimes.
I’ll say one thing about the UFO stuff that might be of interest, and then I’ll move on: at least six major countries have officially declassified all their UFO case files, telling the world that many reported sightings have been explained, while there are a few that they admit they cannot. It only takes one. That’s all I’ll say now.
So when I’m not singing horribly or looking up the strange grids in the Atlantic ocean that could have been an ancient city, I could be doing one of a few things mentioned in my previous post. (I’m an arts and crafts geek too, on top of everything) Why is it that a young person like me just loves to make useless little things, I have no idea. But the video games is more understandable, even though that goes against the stereotype that video games are mostly played by guys (which isn’t far from the truth).
Lately, I’m rediscovering Neverwinter Nights 2. I bought it a few years ago, loaded it up, played it for 10 minutes, and then lost interest. So I never got into the tutorial, even. I played the first NWN, and got into playing around with the tool set (which was way too much fun and distracted me too well from my studies at the Fashion Institute when I was still attending there). So I’m toying with the idea that if I play the new game a little, I may get interested in messing around with the tool set, which may lead to actually finishing my D&D adventure system that I wanted to create eight years ago…
God, I’m such a nerd.
And I still have to finish a present for someone, AND make five little gift bags that I promised my grandmother (which she officially bought from me, because my gramma is cool like that).
Today is still unfolding. But the plan in short is to take one of the cars in to get new tires, go see Old Dogs with Robin Williams and John Travolta (no, they’re not coming along to see it. They’re in it, of course), and to have delicious baby clams with garlic toast in a white wine garlic sauce at Cafe Renato. . . should be a good day.
