Got some shopping done.
My books are gonna cost so much this semester! I even tried looking up discounts or trying to find them on free textbook websites, my books don’t exist on the free websites and they were only dollars cheaper on other sites so basically it didn’t make enough of a difference to justify not going to the bookstore to buy my books which sucks because I could be spending anywhere from $500-600 on my books.
I’m not entirely sure yet because some teachers pull the whole “It’s optional, but if you don’t get the book, you’re going to suffer” business so I’ll have to wait and find out until classes start, not to mention I have no idea how much my music for singers will cost since there’s gonna be 10 pieces and that’s even if I can get into singers this year considering my vocal problems as of late which is really frustrating. I’m only thankful the director to singers has heard me sing and might let me in based on what I can contribute to the group once my vocal issues have been resolved which hopefully the will be!
So it’s kind of frustrating. I hope next semester doesn’t cost as much and that’s even if I can go back next semester and that’s if my voice gets better because this all started with a couple colds I had back in February/March and my voice never full bounced back from that and out of nowhere around a week after the trip from Chicago which was back in mid-July, I was unable to sing with any decent tone and my entire middle section disappeared and became a crackling mess that’s essentially intolerable to listen too. Even if I could find a way to make it cool, I have no control over what’s happening with my voice anymore and what was once a natural talent feels unnatural and takes a lot of effort and that’s kind of killing me.
Well this rant about the cost of college turned into a bit of a darker rant, but I can’t pretend my voice hasn’t been my mind lately. All day my throat has been sore, but I’m not sick and my acid reflux has barely acted up so I’m not even sure if I can chalk this up to acid reflux anymore. All I can do is hope that for once my doctors take me seriously and that I can at least get a scope to see what’s going on with my vocal chords and esophagus, especially considering I’ve had acid reflux for 8 years. I just really need to know what’s wrong and if nothing’s wrong, I’ll know that what’s going on with my voice is mainly psychological, I’ve been there before and with my voice teacher, resolved those problems, but if it’s a physical problem, I need to know so I can do the best I can to get it fixed because singing on top of a problem with the larynx often makes it worst and could bring something that could be resolved with voice therapy into permanent vocal damage.
Uuuuuuugh! I didn’t even mean for this post to be so ranty. I just meant to rant about how expensive textbooks are and that’s it!
Y’all make fun of a baby’s natural hair, and then you dog out black women who wear sew ins and weaves.
Because y’all call Blue Ivy’s hair unkept, and then say Beyonce is a fake bitch for wearing sew ins and what not.
It’s not about hair. You hate black women period.

So as most of you know, I’m am running a raffle/fundraiser to raise money for the Wright Way Rescue here in Illinois. I’m trying to raise at least a few thousand for them, and here’s why. On October 2nd of last year, the rescue was hit by a school bus. You can read the full story here. They have been at a few temporary adoption centers ever since, and are finally getting their new ‘forever home’ built. They need all the help they can get.
The Wright Way Rescue is close to my heart, because I adopted my baby Fozzi-bear there. They’re a great non-profit organization and they need your help! So please consider donating here and helping all the puppies and kitties! For every dollar you donate, you will be entered in winning a huge prize pack worth $800+, sponsored by the Color Me Rad 5k!
