There comes a time in every relationship where you have to reassess. Is this a positive relationship? Are we both contributing? Have I done something to offend this person?
This past weekend has been a tough one, because I decided it was time to evaluate my relationships. It is never fun, but it must be done! (Ha! Rhyming) I finally came to the conclusion that I don’t really have a best friend anymore. That might sound a bit third gradish, but it’s how I feel.
I have tried to be a good friend, tried being the key word, but it doesn’t seem to be enough. The one person that I thought I could always depend on broke the camel’s back this weekend. I haven’t seen her for what seems like years, and she doesn’t seem to really care. Perhaps she has moved on too. I wouldn’t know though…I get all my updates on her through everyone else.
Saturday night came and went. I had a smashing time with my friends Brooke, Andy, and Zach. I learned a couple of new songs on the guitar, but it still felt like something was missing. I guess it is one of those things I’ll have to get used to.
In this coming year I vow that I will be a better friend. None of this “try” crap. When anyone says “try” it automatically gives the ability for a cop out. I WILL be a better friend.
Three days until surgery. Woot…time to move on.
P.S. I can now play “Telephone” by Lady Gaga on my guitar. Shoot me…it’s kind of addicting.
I have a secret to tell. I have been dating someone. It has only been since Christmas, but things have been progressing at a rather serious pace. Let me tell you a few reasons I am falling quickly.
1. She has the perfect body. Every curve is a reason why I love her. It amazes me how everytime I hold her it feels like she was made for me.
2. She has a long neck. Audrey Hepburn made the long neck a beautiful characteristic of any woman to have. Luckily my girl has an extremely long neck.
3. She sings like an angel. The tone of her voice is always in tune, and when it isn’t she responds immediately when I tell her to. She can do anything musically…really!
4. She is shiny. Not in the bad way, but a beautiful way. It is like she is glowing constantly everytime I see her.
5. She never leaves me. I am able to take her anywhere and everywhere. It makes me smile to know that she is a great travel companion and enjoys riding in my car.
6. She likes piggy back rides. You heard me right, she could ride on my back all day. It’s great because she is lightweight and doesn’t slow me down.
I can’t imagine having anyone besides Taylor in my life. I can make music with her, sing with her, laugh with her, and cry with her. She knows all of my deepest secrets and is anticipating when I will tell her my next one.
Taylor is my Taylor guitar.
Every week I have the incredible opportunity of working with an incredible vocal coach. Dean Kaelin has taught some of the most successful people in the music business. Dean’s students include David Archuleta, Carmen Rasmussen, and Julianne Hough.
It’s been an incredible, rewarding, and humbling to work with him. It seems like every lesson I get something new. I can now sing notes that only a few months ago seemed impossible.
I’ve also found my love for country music. It’s fun and has real meaning behind it. My life has taken an interesting turn in the music arena, but for some reason I feel like it’s the right one.
Is American Idol in my future? Probably not. I would rather take a traditional route. I will be hitting the studio in March, assuming I have recovered from surgery, to record some demo tracks. My excitement cannot be contained.
I will be doing a day by day recovery, but the minute I’m back to singing, you’ll know it!
