Day 6/ 7: I Missed A Day…

My intention was to post something every day, indefinitely.

Simply because I enjoy writing and I’d like to get better.

But last night I fell asleep early because I had to record an audition today (Saturday) for schools.

Yes, I plan on going back to school. For vocal performance. As an operatic soprano.

I’ve been studying classical voice for about 13 years now, but I never wanted to commit to a 4-year program.

Until now.

A little context for you…

I’ve been in a long-distance relationship for the last 5+ years.

3 years ago, my then-boyfriend proposed and became my fiancé.

(On Christmas morning, no less. Hell yeah, I said yes.)

There was only one obstacle — he lives in the United Kingdom, and I live in the USA.

Before you ask, yes, we’ve met. Several times. I’ve even spent 2 Christmases with my future in-laws.

But it’s still the case for us after nearly 6 years together, 3 years engaged.

That being said, I’ve finally begun the process of getting my partner visa.

Which means we’ll be able to get married and start our life together in the UK.

With this comes the opportunity for new experiences, new jobs, and new opportunities.

So… why not?

I’m beyond excited.

I’ve missed performing more than I realized.

It’s one of the few things that truly feels natural to me; it’s something I need in my life.

And now that I’m looking to build a life with someone else, I should make sure I can be 100% of the other half of my relationship.

Does that make sense?

So, in short, I’m hoping the recording I’ve done will open up different avenues for me as far as performing.

Who knows… maybe one day I’ll get to perform for Her Majesty.

And meet Meghan and Harry; holy CRAP that’d be amazing.

Ok, that’s it for tonight. Until next I post!
