I sang the song ‘Vogue’ at karaoke last week. It went really well. Madonna songs are always so easy for me to sing well and also since there so well known everyone sings along. I also sang Lady Gaga’s song ‘Speechless’. That one was ok. I’m pretty sure I was off on a couple of notes/keys which I know is ok cause it’s karaoke but I’m really trying to apply what I learn in my singing lessons. This week I think I’m going to sing ‘One Short Day’ from Wicked. I’ve wanted to do a song from Wicked for a while and I did a couple of weeks ago (which vocally went horrible since I did not know the notes as well as i thought I did). So I’m thinking I’m not exactly ready for a ‘Defying Gravity’ or a ‘For Good’, so a big peppy number will do the trick.
Choir is going well too. We yodeled yesterday and there was a goat. It was funny and cute. We also sang ‘The First Nowell’ (among other songs). I really like singing. It’s kind of interesting going to church every Sunday but not to worry family – I’m still Jewish – I just like singing.
The next thing I’ve been thinking about lately has been my goals/dreams and whether they’ll ever be coming true. Even this small insignificant being in a musical thing – will it ever happen. I have been trying my darndest but I guess I haven’t been trying hard enough. Or working hard enough. When I set out to accomplish this dream/goal I had it in mind that it would happen before the end of the year 2011. But low and behold the new year is fast approaching and there is no musical on the horizon. Sure I’m doing other things that are similar but it’s not exactly what I had envisioned. Isn’t the ‘secret’/law of attraction all about getting exactly what you visualize yourself getting?
The other thing I’ve been fretting over is how much I talk / write about the things I want to do but then never really do it? For example, remember when I said I wanted to do that online local talk show? Or post some videos of me singing? Or the most recent one is write a sitcom about a girl (like me) who works at a coffee shop who is always thinking up ‘get rich’ quick schemes but somehow always manages to go back to right where she started…Ok so I think the talk show and singing video thing never happened because I suck with technology and have a really old mac with no ‘imovie’ and not sure how to get that back and the one person I know who is good with techie stuff is really busy…but I guess if I really wanted to get this thing happening I could take my mac into the store and figure it / I’m sure there are more than the one person I know who could help with the techie stuff…ok and then for all the millions of ideas I have I’m planning to sit down and work on them on Wed. and Thurs.
