I have very fond memories of Des Moines last summer, and I think a part of me thinks that going back is going to be the exact same, when this is far from the truth. New people, new shows, new scenes, new professionals I've never worked with before and a dozen different opportunities.
|Peter Grimes rage fest.|
My father is the kind of guy that could wear, do, and eat the exact same thing his entire life and be completely satisfied. My mother on the other hand has wanderlust and a palate for various colors, schemes, tastes, and scenarios. I am a perfect blend of the two of them, because although I'm very excited about what kind of amazing new experiences I'm about to have, I would be just as satisfied staying home, working out at my gym every day, eating the same spin on meat and cheese melted together on a carb, hanging out with my friends and writing posts, singing the music I want to sing.
|I'm gonna miss you, my beautiful, beautiful gym.|
But the later is too easy, and too comfortable for Ol' Yeargain. I want a few more stories to tell, and I want to meet a few more interesting people that I hope to call great friends, and this music has been sitting on my tongue for too long to not be performed for someone other than my cats and whatever neighbor is nearby.
|Eat, sleep, breath?|
But, the fear of the unknown is real. It's a reality that I face, and I'm going to try and not be too shy and speak clearly and to hang out with people even if I'm a little too sleepy or want to just be alone and write. Ol' Yeargain isn't just growing in the gym. (Emotional gaaaiinnnzzz)
If you're in the Des Moines area, make sure to give their season a glance and I'll post on here and my other various forms of social media about other performances that are free to the public. (My scenes are dope, so if you can see those, DO!)
|This space is pretty cool.|
For those of you who are concerned that I'm not going to be posting things on here or on my YouTube channel while I'm gone, Don't be. I'm bringing my phone (duh), tripod, lighting and I always have something to write about. Fear not, I need to write just as much as you need to read. This is a good thing we got going on here, why mess it up?
Until next time,
Lift Big, Sing Big, and Look Great Doing it.
