Returned today.
It was great.

Competition part.

My sister, 13 years old
performed 3 songs,
singing and guitar,
It was her first such kind of performance
my other sister, (21) accompanying on piano.

third place
out of 5
I agree with this
the first and second place really deserved it.

Next day

performed again 2 of those songs
this time as the winner
then my sister (21)
singing some more songs
with her friend on guitar

I recorded their performances

It was also nice to visit my old home town.
It's a year since I was there last time.

I'll be joining the schola, singing in church on Wednesdays 7PM some weeks.
Since June I'm coming meeting there, and multiple people have encouraged me to join singing and finally I decided to try.
Thanks to help of one friend who did a lot to teach us
and another one who provides MIDI files for the songs (to practice at home)
Today and last week I was able to attempt singing the bass parts!
(also, standing right next to someone very good at this helped too,
when I'm able to hear the correct voice near me, not dominated by other voices which would otherwise distract from singing the correct part)

If you're not living on the edge of it, you're taking up too much of it...

I'm confused by this statement.
I must be missing its meaning
sorry
please explain?
If you aren't risking your comfort, you are being a burden to others? I don't know either.

I felt a reference to space, hence my comment.

My honest apologies if it went too far afield.

I just got accepted for an internship. I've been applying for months now, and I finally got a response that wasn't "we're not looking at the moment".

I will be working for an Australia-wide parking solutions company that manufactures and distributes parking bollards. My role will be focusing on marketing and media production, such as blog posts, social media posts, video production, and other forms of company image.

They're planning on expanding internationally to the US and England, so I might even be able to apply for a work visa through them with a States-side partner.

The best part is that it's a largely remote job, meaning I can work anywhere I'm able to access my laptop, whether that's from the comfort of my room or overseas visiting Esther.

I'm still new there but I already got involved in 2 performances to be happening soon.
In two week we will have a mini concert of some advent songs.
In January we will visit the care facility
(the same that we made the Christmas cards for)
we will go from room to room
singing Christmas carols for the people there.
I'm a bit afraid because I'm new at this and so far every time is a challenge for me.

Today I participated in a theatrical improvisation workshop!
At some point one person returned after he left the room for some time.
He misunderstood what was the point of the exercise we were doing at that moment
He thought he was supposed to point to the people standing in circle, and say words for them to demonstrate.
(The person leading the workshop did not correct him, creating an unexpected opportunity to improvise)
At some point he pointed at me, and said
Bicycle!
He does not know me, so he couldn't have known how related it is.

I'm excited because Rebelle 7 comes out in less than a week, and I can't wait to do some digital painting with it :yayaya:

I already know what we will be singing
and why did there have to chose such difficult songs /?

probably that's just how I feel, still being new at this.
And after first attempts at home today and yesterday I already feel a bit better about thos songs than I did when I heard them for the first time.
Still, will be a challenge.
