Our first show is tomorrow night, and I'm more than a bit nervous. I'm beyond excited that we will be performing an acoustic version of Paint on the Air, but I can't seem to figure out the harmonies, and they're what used to be so easy to me! I hate my voice anymore, I feel like I can't get it to do what I need it to do, what it used to do. I am coming back after a year of not doing anything with my voice, excluding one drunken night of karaoke for my brother's birthday back in December.
I'm hoping that I just need to get through this first show, and that it will be easier after that.
I just... need some sleep and a bit of rest. These last couple of weeks have been moida! I just wish that I was able to get the rest and stuff before the show, instead of the show being this giant climax of two weeks of stress.
As Ben was driving me home from practice last night, we were stuck in traffic next to a VW bug. I thought, "Didn't Ben used to drive one of those?" and had a flashback of him pulling his accordion out of the car, back in the days that we were in The Vacant Stairs together in Phoenix. Amazing to think that six or more years later, he and I are still playing together musically (more or less) after so many things happening in our lives, after being through so much. Hell, we're not even in the same state as where we were in our first band together. That must mean something, yes?
