I have several blog posts in my head, waiting until I have a little time to put them on. So they’re coming soon, in case you’ve been sorely disappointed by our silence as of late! (Sorry, we’ve had houseguests for most of the month!)
But I have some interesting/weird news. I auditioned on base recently for a spot on the talent competition coming to NBC this coming summer called Nashville Star. I’ve never even seen the show. And to be quite honest, I’m not the biggest country music fan in the world.But ya’ll know I love to sing! So I did it, and it was fun. Well, I made the top 3 at our base and my video was forwarded to the States for selection of a wordlwide top 10 among all the military bases in the world. I didn’t think a had a fat (or skinny) chance of making it to the Top 10. But I did. Just found out a couple days ago. So they are flying me from Japan to Richmond, Virginia to compete for the one U.S. military spot on next season’s “Nashville Star.” Now just to keep it real, I REALLY don’t think I’ll do super-awesome at this next phase of the competition! But it will be FUN, FUN. FUN, and I happened to have already planned a trip to the States that weekend and the whole previous week, so now my airfare is free (except I’m taking that little weeklong excursion to Tulsa before the competition on April 11th). Thoughts? Chime in, people! And don’t be shy to tell me what country song you think I should sing!
