Figuring it out.... 1 step at a time...

OK, I have to make this VERY brief but hopefully will post more thoughts about this later.

There are really 2 things you need to know about me to understand why this might make a little sense:

1) I love to sing. I love it, love it, love it. I have annoyed friends and family with it for a quarter of a century and when I was little my friend actually asked my mom if I HAD to sing ALL the time. The answer is YES! Because I JUST LOVE IT! However, I'm terrified to really try it in front of people because I'm shy. So I've never tried to do anything about it.
2) What was 2 again? I don't know how to write songs? That's true but that wasn't it. Seriously, I completely forgot.

Oh right,

2) I love the experimental memoir genre of writing (probably not a real thing, I made this term up, I think). I LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. Like Julie and Julia? Or The Year of Living Biblically? Or Sleeping Naked is Green? I'll post links later... I just think it's so much fun to see how a person changes because of something that they try to do.

So.... today I replied to a couple of ads on kijiji looking for female singers. I guess what I'd like to do is start up an acoustic duo kind of thing, but I need a person who really knows how to play guitar. I can play backup guitar, but not front-up (lol). So, here's hoping. I know of a couple of open mic places that I/we could play at and after a serious ego boost from a couple of my sister's friends on the weekend, I think I'll actually give it a try. So wish me luck! And follow my adventures!

Oh, and don't let me get lazy! I love comments on my blog and am likely to do whatever those comments say. So, if in 3 months I haven't even posted a video of myself so that you guys can let me know how much of a good or bad idea this music thing is, ask "hey! Where the hell is that video you promised us?" and I'm likely to post it. Because I almost always bend to peer pressure.

So thanks all - hope to keep you updated later! SOON! But later.
