HAPPY MONDAY MORNING!
Now before you groan and plan your assassination of me for that comment let me defend myself by stating that today is, in fact, a happy monday morning for me.
FOR MY WORLD MUSIC/FOLK/GYPSY BAND IS ABOUT TO EMBARK ON OUR FIRST STUDIO RECORDING SESSION! 😀 😀 😀
And I am quite excited.
And I promise details, LOTS OF THEM. But first, I have a blog post I promised you all (From last week…my deepest apologies)
When we left off last week our young heroine had just been cornered by a young gypsy man from Chiynyoloslovakia* who was begging her to run away with him back to his homeland overseas so she could forever play violin in a wandering minstrel folk band-
LOL NO THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN.
Is it kind of sad that I wish it would? But that I’m not really sure I would take handsome gypsy man up on his offer?
Saying I adore music is a huge understatement; if something were to happen that prevented me from being a musician I would not be able to function. Although I’m not pursuing it post-secondary I would not give up my club orchestra and band for anything.
That being said, I’m not sure if I would give up my current post-secondary education or not if the opportunity to pursue music in a band arose. For a while I was adamant that I wanted to complete my degree before anything else because it’s a huge personal goal for me and I want to reach that milestone. However if touring was a once in a lifetime chance then I know that rejecting the offer would be one of the greatest regrets of my life.
Decisions, decisions…that hopefully will not have to be made while I’m still in university. I am content with where my music is at this point. And while I would jump at the chance to perform for a live audience the question still lies as to whether I would jump at the chance to run away to Chiynyoloslovakia** with an attractive gypsy man…
*Still not a country **Just googled it. Definitely still not a country.
