Son of a whore….
So, I’ve got mah puriod, right? Had it last month on the thirteenth, got it this month on the twelfth. So, I’ll get it this time next month.
The problem? I’m going to Chicago next month on the thirteenth! Fuck me three ways, I do not want to have to deal with that! Geez…is there any way to make it not happen? Just for that one month, then I’ll go back to normal?
Imma gonna be on das TV tonight!
Yessir, the airing of the Fox 56 holiday carols special is tonight and we gon’ be on there.
So, if you live ‘round here, have this channel, and wanna see my sexy face, tune into Fox 56 at 5:00 pm and witness the Lexington Christian Academy choir sing all good and stuff.
Went ice skating for a chorus party.
It was so much fun! I kinda suck at skating though and couldn’t stop hugging the wall for 95% of the time. The other five percent was spent being taught to skate by my friend Tanner (who isn’t even in chorus and isn’t doing a very good job convincing us he doesn’t want to be in chorus, what with showing up to our parties and all).
He tried standing in front of me keeping a hold on me and getting me to mimic his stance and he tried instructing me from the side with his arm around me, but all these earned us was Megan being obnoxious and humming the wedding march. Finally, he was like, “go back to the wall,” and I realized then that I would never be able to learn to skate.
Also, I got an A on my Latin final, meaning I got five As, 1 B, 1 C, and 1 F. Pretty fair balance if ya ask me. At last, I’m on Christmas break!
My singing adventures
Also known as the story of how Hannah gained some confidence:
A’ight, so you know how I was down about fucking my audition up? Well, lately, I’ve started to hate singing because I feel like I’m really bad at it and everyone else is so much better than me.
I stayed late after school on Thursday to make up a test from when I was sick. As I was leaving, our accompanist comes up to me and says:
“Hannah, I wanted to tell you that after your audition I texted (old chorus teacher/musical director) to tell her that she should be here to see how much her kids have improved. I’m so surprised by how much you’ve improved in such a short amount of time and you’re just a sophomore! It makes me so glad that I’ve still got two more years to work with you, because of the way your voice is improving and just the sort of person you’re becoming.”
I. Can. Sing.
So, on to the whole worship band thing. For some crazy reason, I signed up to be in a worship band that will perform in chapel next year. This is kind of awkward, what with my atheism and all.
But I was having an attention-whore moment and decided I wanted a chance to be on stage. Of course, at the time, I thought two other girls would be singing with me. Sadly, both dropped out and now it’s just me, two bassists, and a guitarist. Meaning I’m lead singer.
Yeah, so I was freaking out about that, considering my lack of confidence in my voice, but couldn’t drop out because we’re already having a hard enough time without a drummer. I didn’t want to disappoint the guys by quitting.
Well, now, I guess I have nothing to worry about! Apparently, I can sing, and I’m improving a lot. I hope that means I’m getting a minorminorminor role in Seussical now. See, other than the parts that have been cast, there are really small ensemble bits that haven’t been cast yet. Not like the bigger ensembles that I know I’ll be in, but smaller bits where one would be a focus on the stage.
I can only wish! And maybe in a year or so, I might get cast. I can hardly wait to see where I’m going!
Not quite, but, today, our accompanist, who has been along longer than this director, the previous one (who only lasted a year), and the one before that, told me she loved the way my voice was improving and that she’s so glad she has two more years to work with me.
Checked the call back list.
Wasn’t surprised to see I didn’t make it, but I still wish I had.
Oh my Lord.
I’m so tired, plus my sore throat is killing me. It’s like I’m deep throating knives and steel wool.
But we had to stay after school till eight to film because our choir’s gonna be on a local station! So excited! And now we’ve got auditions the day after tomorrow and the Christmas concert next Tuesday.
Still, my throat really hurts. D:
Holy shit, Cabaret!
Cabaret, day after tomorrow!!!!
I’m so excited! Our song is looking good, I seriously cannot wait to perform it.
