So this week was spent preparing for a recital that took place on 3/28. I had the great pleasure of singing a fun song titled "Once In Love With Amy." Originally sung by Ray Bolger (who was Scarecrow in Wizard of Oz), and rather playful in the melody. The liberties that can be taken with the piece can make or break it. I sang in front of several of my peers and a few professors, and got great reviews. Some include "you should try out for area plays." and "you are such a character." Now why people said that last one, I have no idea. ; )
But singing is something I thoroughly enjoy, and when I can get into a piece, that's when the magic happens. I made people laugh, and my stage presents filled the room. But enough about my performance, for I still have a great deal to learn, and I know it. The other performers were excellent, and I am jealous of a few. One guy has an amazing range of higher pitches that I want to eventually be able to do. Other's had a great deal of emotion within the number they performed.
Now I'll leave you with this:
I came back to my dorm Sunday night to find it covered in giant clear trash bags blown up with air. So let the prank war begin my friends. It was well done, and rather funny to see. Comment if you have any interesting pranks that would fit a dorm setting.
Have a good week my friends.
