See? I've Been Doing Stuff!!!

So here's where I give excuse after excuse about why I've not posted. But honestly, it leads up to one big thing:

LIFE.

There's just no rest involved, you see? Specifically when it comes to education...

But!!! I do have proof that I've not just been gallivanting around Nashville all willy-nilly.

Presenting.........

Trumpet fanfare!

Drumroll!!

Duhn dah DAHHHHHHH!!!

My performance for Belmont University's Classical Singers Recital!

Watch and enjoy.


The songs you just heard were In alto mare by Ottorino Respighi (one of my favorites - love him) and Sea Air from Andre Previn's Streetcar Named Desire. Yes, my friends, they made an opera out of that, and the character I played in this song was Blanche Dubois, right before her sister sends her to the mental hospital. I didn't quite pull of the crazy as much as I would have liked, but meh... Next time around I'll nail it. :)

Peace.
Stef.

I love A Steetcar Named Desire! I had no idea it was turned into an opera. That ending was so sad, though. I always liked Blanche more than her sister.

Speaking of sisters, my older sister sings opera also, so it holds a special place in my heart. Keep it up. :)

So I enjoy your blog because I'm a fan of writing exercises for some strange reason. But I had to comment today, and tell you that I love the title of this post. I feel like saying this to people everyday. I'm not always doing what they might expect, but I'm always doing something. Really. :) Anyway, thanks for sharing.

Soft Things

Exercise #105 : "Soft Things"
Make a list of soft things.

This should be easy enough, shouldn't it?

"Purple Things"

Exercise #28: "Purple Things"
What things are purple? Make a list.
EggplantsOne-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater (see below)Bruises (sometimes)a REALLY beautiful sunsetElizabeth Taylor's eyes (does violet count?)Barney (I love you, you love me...)GrapesLavendarOrchidsAmethystCabbage (sometimes)Lots of different birdsPlumsVioletsOnionsROYGBIVThat's all I can think of. 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"
What things are yellow? Make a list. At the end of the five minutes, note the three you find most curious.
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.

Well... I'll go with... but none of those are curious! That's silly.
