Oh, How I Miss You!

Rocking.. I always forget how much I enjoy it.

It's been quite some time since I've done anything musically, and for some reason I'm always reluctant to jump back in after any sort of extended hiatus. I guess it mainly has to do with my incredible knack for being way too insecure – it doesn't matter how many people come up and say "Wow! You were really good!" or "That was awesome!" – part of me is convinced that compliments are given out of pity. Ridiculous, yes; hard to get over, definitely.

This Saturday I went out with one of Madison, WI's top 10 rock bands, Guppy Effect, and had more fun in one night than I've seen in a long time. There was talk of me guest singing on one song, which I fully planned to do. We didn't get around to that song until the end of the night, but that was fine with me.. because I ended up doing another 3-4 songs earlier in the night. During the first break, the guitarist mysteriously vanished, so I got to open up the second set to a pretty receptive crowd. I stepped up to the mic, stage fright set it, and I did my part to create some serious ear-candy.

First Perfect-Weather Weekend Of The Year

I'm going to chalk the last few days up as having been another great weekend.

When I was younger, I used to be really into baseball. There was a park less than a block away from my house, and my neighbor and I would go down and hit a few every once in awhile. I had a pretty sizeable card collection which, unfortunately, seems to have vanished. What took me away from baseball? I'm not sure, but I'm almost hooked on it again. Part of me is resisting.

Saturday I went to my first Cubs game and the second baseball game that I've ever gone to. We had excellent seats, and the game was pretty back and forth. If there was ever a perfect situation to stir up my hunger for baseball, this was it. And it did. I'm hungry. As usual, pictures will probably take a week for me to actually get uploaded to flickr.

Sunday consisted of a trip to the Lincoln Park Zoo and then the Conservatory. Both were nice and I had a great time, and now I'm really looking forward to seeing the zoo in the summer when the trees are full of leaves and the flowers are in bloom.
