Who I Was

Who I Was

I was given my first violin for Christmas when I was five, nearly six. My flute, Christmas 2004 — I was eight, nearly nine. I played the ocarina and the recorder in school, the way most children do at the age of six or seven. My mum taught me the basics of playing the violin, but I didn’t start lessons until 2003. These were in groups, at school. I wanted to take up the flute in 2003 instead of the…

Kiss Me Kate Diaries: #3

Kiss Me Kate Diaries: #3

Somewhat mini edition tonight because it’s 11pm and I just played a show, but as it’s my turn for the TCWT blog chain tomorrow (and I notice they’ve now added a 1000-word limit, woe is me), I had to do this now. Wednesday, 4th July – Second night Went pretty well. This is the gala night when all the governors come and watch, all the teachers come and laugh at their students in costume, and the people from the Arts…

Kiss Me Kate Diaries: #2

Kiss Me Kate Diaries: #2

Tuesday, 3rd July: Opening Night Another opening, another show … It’s mid afternoon and the band are shattered. We’ve been in rehearsals since twelve and although they gave us a generous forty minutes for lunch today (we’re going up in the world!), the cast have now joined us and we’re choreographing the bows. Which means, of course, that we have to play them over and over again while the various characters put on the right pieces of costume to enter…

Tumblr Likes It

Tumblr Likes It

I have a band. We started out as a trock band, but the first few songs I wrote were about Torchwood, so we decided to branch out.

And basically we ended up becoming ┬áband who write songs about things that Tumblr likes. We’re called Forever Reblogging and we haven’t yet had a rehearsal…

Slightly Legible Updates

Slightly Legible Updates

Well, I say they’ll be slightly legible. I can’t actually guarantee that, since I’ve been typing at a rate of 100 words per minute for the last, oh, I don’t know how long. Anyway, I wrote four thousand words this evening alone despite a band rehearsal and the distraction of Have I Got News For You, and I thought it only fair I gave you a proper update. So, NaNoWriMo is well underway. For those of you who are new…

Something Saturday: A Lot Of Rain and Branching Out

Something Saturday: A Lot Of Rain and Branching Out

First of all, it’s raining right now. Like, a lot. Like, if I was outside right now the white, extremely piratical shirt that I’m wearing would be see-through in about 0.5 of a second. it’s rain that’s going practically horizontal because of the wind and it looks horrible. So glad I’m inside just watching it from my window :) Secondly, I’ve been branching out a little and I’m forming a band. Though this is really a topic for my other…
