Things (First post)

So, I guess I'm starting to write a proper blog. Feels weird, because I can never really commit to these things, but guess I'll try to do it now that I have a little more time.

So guess, this'll just be a start, an introduction, probably comprised of information you may have already gathered if you pay attention to my posts regularly.

I'm 21 years old, college student (Senior now, haha) going to graduate December 2016. My major is Music Performance (clarinet)

I go to a large, diverse, public state university on the east coast with a very good art school, in a swing state. I grew up in a suburb very close to DC.

I'm an American citizen by birth, British citizen by descent.

Just finished a semester abroad at a prestigious conservatoire in the UK. 

I enjoy political discourse. I'm a closet Hillary supporter (some of my Bernie supporting friends would annihilate me if they knew.)

My fascination with fundies comes from the my totally secular upbringing. Specifically, my immediate family is almost the opposite of the Duggars (I'm the youngest of two, very well educated parents, grew up liberal and secular, totally not in the country, went mostly to public school, except during high school)

I also like food (especially Asian food), traveling, doing my makeup/nails, clothes, and taking baths. And I'm getting back into coloring. Thanks FJ.

Might write something more relevant later. LOL.

Oh thank you!  I just realized how much I really want a long, hot, lavendar-scented bath after reading this. :)

Looking forward to reading more from you.

How do you like studying music in that capacity? My friend studied music theory and played the flute in college.

Just saw this comment, sorry for not replying sooner!

I'm enjoying studying music in this depth! It's very hard work, and a big time commitment, and often involves great highs mixed with great disappointment, but for me, and my friends, we love music so much we wouldn't have it any other way! And I do enjoy getting to play a lot of music, and learning all about composers and theory and everything.

      Oh man, that was me. So sheltered; so much of what the school kids laughed about went right by me.

      We had a Dodge Caravan with wood paneling and I did wonder why they kept asking me if I "had a woody."  Again, years passed...

      The boys weren't terrible, they were just adolescent boys, but a lot of my early "smut" knowledge was due to girls pooling info when we realized why boys were laughing, lol.  (My mom shared all the real, anatomical knowledge, but not so much with the slang.)

      I grew up with the Irish Rovers' The Unicorn Song, which says the same thing. 

        Hide contents

      A long time ago, when the earth was still green
      And there were more kinds of animals than you've ever seen
      They'd run around free while the earth was being born
      But the loveliest of all was the unicorn

      There was green alligators and long-necked geese
      Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
      Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born
      The loveliest of all was the unicorn

      Now god seen some sinnin' and it gave him pain
      And he says, "stand back, I'm going to make it rain"
      He says, "hey, brother Noah, I'll tell you what to do
      Build me a floating zoo"

      And take some of them green alligators and long-necked geese
      Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
      Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born
      Don't you forget my unicorn"

      Old Noah was there to answer the call
      He finished up making the ark just as the rain started fallin'
      He marched in the animals two by two
      And he called out as they went through
      "Hey, Lord"

      I've got your green alligators and long-necked geese
      Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
      Some cats and rats and elephants, but Lord, I'm so forlorn
      I just can't see no unicorn"

      Then Noah looked out through the driving rain
      Them unicorns was hiding, playing silly games
      Kicking and splashing while the rain was pouring
      Oh, them silly unicorns

      There was green alligators and long-necked geese
      Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
      Noah cried, "close the doors 'cause the rain is pourin'
      And we just can't wait for no unicorns"

      The ark started movin', it drifted with the tide
      Them unicorns looked up from the rock and they cried
      And the waters came down and sort of floated them away
      And that's why you'll never see a unicorn, to this very day

      You'll see green alligators and long-necked geese
      Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
      Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born
      You're never gonna see no unicorn

       

      LOL there's a whole dance that goes along with that song, it's a family fav, especially after a few drinks!

      Did we know she has a store where she sells stuff? Bracelets, t-shirts, a hat, etc. It's part of her website.
