If All Else Fails You Can Blame It On Me

Maybe I should pursue a future in music. I love the feeling I get when I'm singing, especially in a group. I love harmonizing and blending and reading difficult music. I'm pretty sure I get the same thrill from figuring out difficult intervals and rhythms on the spot while sight reading that other people get from crossword puzzles and Sudoku.
I don't think I would like being part of a professional musical ensemble if it meant that I would constantly be traveling for years at a time. I don't want to be away from my family and friends for that long.
Speaking of ensembles, my choir is working on some amazing songs this semester. I'm especially excited about a song that we're doing that I sang in choir my freshman year here called Past Life Melodies. It has this crazy part at the end where we create whistle-like harmonics that soar above the singing.
Also, the jazz a cappella group that I joined has a really great sound this year. Come hear us perform. : )

Check it Out:
1.) "Save the Last Dance for Me" as performed by Michael Bublé
2.) Barenaked Ladies album: Gordon

That's the thing about the music industry. You can only really afford to have a family AFTER you've broken into it. And even then, you're on the road a lot, most of the time. ::sigh:: sorry, like you wanted to hear that from some guy you don't know who's not exactly what they call an "industry-expert." It just seems like a "music career" isn't the end, its the means. The end is the music, so as long as you're making that, however you manage to do it, you're okay.
