What were you doing 9 years ago?
Let's see - 9 years ago I was in college struggling with my BORING classes and trying to figure out a major which wouldn't drive me too crazy. I was trying to justify going to NYU and getting a "regular" BA as opposed to going to a conservatory to pursue opera. I told myself it was because I didn't want to be waitressing after I graduate so I needed a back up career. I've still got mixed feelings about it - On the one hand I met E in college and If I had gone to conservatory I never would have, I found my job while I was there through career services and I've been here ever since, and I am not waitressing, I did get to take voice lessons in College although not at the intensity I would have liked. On the other hand one of the girls I went to HS with went to the conservatory I would have wanted to go to and she is now singing mainstage at the Pittsburgh opera....oh well I'm not out of the game yet!

What were you doing 6 years ago?

Graduating college, then working full time and hating it - still do! Taking Voice lessons and naively thinking that I was going to be singing mainstage at the met by the time I was 30...HAHAHAHA yeah right. It's a lot harder than that, but I've still not given up my dream - it might not be at the met but I'll be singing mainstage in a few years!

What were you doing one hour ago?
