First let me just get this off my mind, I really want to win that Oprah Contest. I know it’s a long shot but so is everything that I want it would seem. I’ve applied every day since I heard about it which I think was like a week into it. So not every day. Oh well. I’ll find out today at 1pm. I hope it’s me.
Anyway, I joined a choir. My first practice was last night at a church close to Yonge and St. Clair. The building is so lovely. I did feel slightly out of place singing with a church choir but in the end I’m going to continue because I really work on my ability to harmonize. When I’m done with this choir I want to be able to stand in between a soprano and tenor and be able to sing my alto line. I tend to get pulled into what I hear instead move confidently forward singing the notes I’m supposed to sing. This’ll help with my ability to listen. I’m going to church on Sunday. I’ve never been. Only been in a church for one wedding and a baptism. That’s it. I asked the woman next to me all sorts of questions. Like – where do the nuns live? answer: this was a different kind of church with no nuns. I sort of thought this would be like Sister Act but no such luck. I get to wear a robe! I’m really excited for Sunday.
I also sang Karaoke Wednesday night. I don’t know if I can stand karaoke every week. I mean you wait so long to sing your songs and you have to listen to everyone else. I’m going next week but not sure how long I can do it. Wednesday I sang ‘The Wizard and I’ and ‘Tomorrow’. So, ‘The Wizard and I’ was pretty tough and I could tell I was off but that’s ok cause it’s karaoke. ‘Tomorrow’ is just such a happy go lucky song, I couldn’t help but feel good after I sang that one. Next week I’m going to sing ‘Suddenly, Seymour’. I think I’m just going to sing the 1 song at Karaoke and then leave. I don’t want to be out late. I’m so impatient, I can’t wait. That’s what’s going to have to happen.
