Vocalboost and early mornings

Hmmph… Turns out I’m not recording vocals today after all, because Dan and the guys are recording some ThisIsTwo stuff… Bummer, I was really looking forward to finishing Another Song. Oh well. I guess that gives me time to work on my music theory or something. I do need it. Actually, I have found an awesome Music Theory App for my iPhone which makes it a LOT easier. Today I finally cracked the key signature code, and I totally rock on key signatures now. An hour ago, I didn’t. 
IPhone Apps are great. Whatsapp Messenger (gotta love the name right?) allows me to text (all my THREE friends who also has it) for free. I just got one for budgeting and keeping track of expenses, which is VERY handy, and I have to-do-lists and shopping-lists and you name it. And maybe the best one, is the one that allows me to listen to all the main radio stations in Norway. And off course I gotta mention the Facebook app and all the games… If you still haven’t tried Doodle Jump, Plants vs. Zombies and Angry Birds, I strongly recommend that you get on the case right away. You might not see the sun for a couple of days once you get sucked in, but what’s a couple of days, right?
Today has been a good day. I had serious trouble getting up this morning, but that’s nothing new. I managed to drag myself in for A Cappella at 9:30, and except from some major trouble us alto’s had with this ONE line of the christmas song we’re working on at the moment, which resulted in us having to stand in “the circle of shame”, as Ian calls it, it was great. ;-P We also got the message that Body Conditioning class was cancelled, which didn’t exactly make us any less happy. That actually meant I didn’t have any more classes until Ensemble at 5, so I went home and organized my big mess of a pile of papers/notes from LIPA, and started going through receipts from this month before they disappear in the big black hole that is my room. Cause I know they will. 
Ensemble was good, as always. I love my ensemble, and I love working on that song again… It is so much fun to sing something that far from what I normally do. I can’t wait to perform it again! I had a major boost when we went through it for the first time last week. You see, I can actually feel that something has happened with my voice since I last sang it, two years ago. I’m singing RIGHT now, not only can I reach the notes, but it comes easy, no pain! Such an amazing feeling! And it is always nice to get good feedback, especially in a crowd like this. Fun times! 😀
I’m gonna squeeze in a bit of theory now, before sleepy time. I’ve got 3 hours of Professional Development first thing in the morning, so I need my sleep if I’m gonna stay awake for that… Don’t get me wrong, it’s interesting stuff, I just have biiig problems paying attention in situations like that, when I have to sit still and just listen to someone talk. ADD has been suggested by a couple of my near and dear ones, and I don’t completely disregard it. Coffee makes me TIRED as well, which apparently is another symptom. 
I hope you have all kicked the week off with a smile!
Lots of luuuuv,
One good reason to love today:
It is Tuesday, and in a week today, Silly is coming to visit from Norway, with a suitcase full of hugs and Norwegian candy! ❤

    Would be fun to hear this changes you're talking about. You still got that video performing that song on Alfreds, right? looking forward to the new video I suppose you are going to record, when you perform it again. what's that to-do list app called? and the shopping list?

    Just search for “to do list” and “shopping list”. I'll whatsapp you pictures so you'll recognize them! =)

    Yup, it will be recorded for sure. But you might be there in person as well! 😉
