Singing and friends

By on Sep 30, 2015 in Travel with kids | 0 comments


Hey guys, This week has been good, we’ve been having a lot of fun with Nat and Jodie but we’ve still been spending a lot of time working. 

It feels kinda like this is the little Italian base for all our friends and family, I really love having everyone over though, it can get a little tiresome just being around family all the time. 
Mum, dad and the girls do a lot of business stuff all the time so it leaves the boys and I to do whatever we want, most of the time we just play video games or go on our devices. Soon though we will finally be starting e school, we’re starting at the same time as everyone at home, I’m not sure how it’s all going to be but I’m looking forward to it! 
Italian lessons have been going really well, we’re learning a lot and having fun with it as well. Funnily enough we’re actually learning, we’ll sort of being reminded of English grammar rules that we’ve all forgotten. The boys and I are okay at remembering them since we are still technically ‘in school’, where as mum and dad have a bit more trouble remembering them. It’s really hilarious to watch some of our teachers expressions when she’ll tell us an English rule and we all just stare at her blankly. :’) 
I’m not sure if I’ve talked about this before or not but our Italian teacher suggested a few music schools to us so that I could go get lessons if I wanted to, the boys are doing basketball so she thought it would be nice if I could do something I enjoyed. I’d told her about my performing back home and so she suggested singing lessons. 

We thought it was a great idea so we went to the schools and booked a free lesson with both schools for sometime in the next week. So far I’ve only been to one of the lessons and I have the second one tomorrow. 
I’m actually really nervous, my singing is something that has just always been natural to me, I’ve been singing for as long as I’ve remembered but I’ve always been very shy about it. Well not really shy but anxious, if it’s around friends and family then I’m always singing without a care in the world, even when I’m in a public place, I’m always sing, weather it’s the supermarket or just walking down the street, I’ll just always be singing. 

But the thing is that as soon as its in front of someone that it think is going to ‘judge’ me then I immediately get nervous and have a really hard time singing. 
So when I went to the singing lesson I got so nervous that I couldn’t even sing until the last second and even then my voice shook and I sounded weird to my own ears. I’m not sure why but in this sort of situation I have no confidence at all and it really sucks! I want to improve my voice but to do that I need a teacher that knows what they’re doing and to help me improve they first have to judge my skill which is why I get so nervous I guess. 
So I guess you could say that I’m nervous for tomorrow, like really nervous. 
Other then that we’ve just been having a really fun time with Nat and Jodie, at this point they’re actually my second and third mummies, they’re really lovely and so amazing to have around, it’s going to be really sad to say goodbye but it’s still not for a while so I’ll just enjoy the time we have together! 🙂 
That’s all for now guys, talk again next week, Bye!
