A Successful Weekend

So, as I stated in my last post, I went out of town this weekend to participate in the National Association for Teachers of Singing Competition in Cleveland, TN at Lee University.

Well, guess what? I got third place in my division! Woot! There were more divisions than I can count on my fingers and toes, but I feel really good about it. My group - Junior Women - started with approximately 50 young ladies, and they narrowed it down to 20 or so. After that, they narrowed it down to 3, and, to my surprise, I was included in that final three!! I was so proud of myself.

Anyways, the final performance didn't go as well as I had hoped, which ended up leaving me in 3rd, but I still feel really good about it. Go Stefers!

Just in case you were wondering, normal posting will resume tomorrow. Yay!

Peace.
Stef.

What things are purple? Make a list.

You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:



Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…

"Yellow List"

Exercise #83 : "Yellow List"

Ah, yellow. One of my least favorite colors. I mean, it's nice and all, but there are so many versions of this color that are simply eye-raping. Anyways, on with the list.
