“I am a Singer” Part 2

13 May

Finally, right?

Sorry for the massive delay in part 2, but April was a bitch of a month for me. I had an impacted tooth that was so infected my endodontic dentist said it was one of the worst he’d ever seen – they usually don’t have as long to get that bad as they usually start hurting much earlier. It required oral surgery which I am apparently healing from very well. On the bright side, he now thinks I have the pain tolerance of a superwoman. So, rawr!

Also, we moved into a home. Still renting, but very happy and excited with that, but something that really warrants it’s own post. This topic has been languishing in the back of my mind for a while.

The issue I have had to overcome is the notion of telling people that singing is what I do. It’s very hard to commit to that self-definition because…well… I’m not successful yet – from a business standpoint.

It’s one thing to say, “I’m a <blank>", when someone is paying you to do that. And if I am honest with myself, I don’t think I’ll ever 100% believe I *am* a singer until I get my first paying gig.

I do have an *unpaid* gig – singing at a 4th of July banquet – which is a step in the right direction.

The last thing that I know will help me feel like the title fits is to work at it, which I haven’t been doing this past month, what with the oral surgery and moving and everything. Thankfully, the office in the new home is set up to be more conducive to recording and editing. I have set a goal of recording the two songs I intend to sing at the 4th of July event and posting them on this blog by the time of the event.

But that’s all I really had to say about that. I do have a trip to the zoo and the move to post about soon, as well.

So stay tuned – good things to come.
