& we're singing the same old songs.

Haven't seen you in ages! How have you been?!"


It has been a while since I've blogged, so I thought I'd catch you up, yet again.

My cousin Tisha is now here. Has been for almost a week now. 
It's been great, we've been staying up late every night since her arrival. A lot to talk about, I mean we haven't seen each other in A YEAR! Which is crazy to think of. An entire year has gone by since the last time I saw her. Things like this are constantly bringing me back to "Time sure fly's by." Speaking of which, actually, one of the many songs I'm working on, off and on is called "Possibility's" and I talk a lot about time, and life in general in it. It's very happy, and up beat. :)

Tomorrow were heading up island, to Comox, yet again for another music related ordeal. This time it's the Vancouver Island Music Festival, which is quite a different event from the Business Conference. I'm performing twice. On the Woodland Stage on Saturday morning at 10:00 AM (for almost an hour) and on Sunday (don't know the time) in a "song circle" which I didn't know what that was until the Music Conference. It's where a bunch of songwriter's (you guessed it) sit in a CIRCLE, and play their songs. lol =P Actually it's pretty self explanatory. I've seen two song circle's so far, and their pretty darn cool! It's awesome that I get to be apart of one! =]
So, I'm pretty excited as excited goes. This time will be a lot different from the last time I went up island for musical reasons. This time involves, well, it involved more TIME, and relaxing. We'll actually be able to enjoy the pool that we have apparently at out hotel, WHICH their paying for! OHH YEAH. =P My first gig where their paying for my stay! *accomplished look* ;)

So, it should be pretty fun, EXCEPT for the fact that I'm a nervous freak. LOL
I can NEVER practice enough. & I wanted to have more songs on my set list, but I didn't want to put to much pressure on myself, so I'm just going with my regular songs.

Just.... breathe. :P




Oh! And I might be getting two interview while I'm up there, in between my performances. Which, is also nerve racking, but I just try to take things like these as they come and not get to worked up about them. 

Just, have fun with it. 
That's what it's really all about. =)

Until I'm back from the Festival (or maybe while I'm there depending on how things go..)
Take care,

Karly. <3
