*yawns and stretches* Normal day today. Slept until 11am this morning, like I did yesterday... went online to check email, forums, IRC, yadda yadda yadda, had lunch, then went to my weekly singing lesson.
I don't think I've mentioned how much I love my singing teacher yet. She's some 20 years older than me, and I've known her for... two or three years, I think. I don't remember exactly. More than two years, at any rate.
First of all, she's a great teacher. Best singing teacher I've had (and I've had several). When I started studying with her I was so blocked up I found singing very difficult, I could only cover one octave and a half or so with my voice... a couple of months after I started studying with her, I was no longer blocked up and already at two octaves, and right now I'm nearly at three. Which is good. I like seeing how high can I go with my voice. \o/
Secondly, she's a great friend as well. Yeah, she's older than me, and she's still my teacher, but she's a friend more than a teacher. We talk a lot, we laugh together (she has my same sense of humour), we discuss many things (she has my same opinions and my same views on life)...
I had not sung in two weeks (due to having the flu and then a bad cold), and I realized as soon as I started singing again how much I missed it. Not only the "let's see how high I get this time" part of singing (which is quite important for me), but also my teacher herself. I missed being with one of the few people I know in RL who can make me laugh until it hurts. \o/ I couldn't get very high with my voice this time (I was still kinda blocked up because of the flu/cold), but it didn't matter.
Good day today.
(Happy now, GBM? ;)
