Well, it has been an exciting and eventful past few days. Last update was Thursday... Thursday evening, well, I finally found the courage to sit on a stool in front of about ten people, all under the age of maybe 18, and play two of my songs. That's right, I went to an open mic. It's funny: I can have holes drilled into my back and have chemicals pumped into my body no sweat. I just can't sing in front of people. I guess it went OK... I dropped my pick midway through my second song, but I just kept strumming away with my finger. So now I guess the next thing to do is go to another open mic. And not drop my pick. I'm sure the more I sing in front of people, the more comfortable I will become with it. So that was Thursday. Friday, I worked again at the Arboretum; more price-tagging, more fun times. And then Saturday was the really exciting day for me. I went to a concert! It was a benefit for a foundation called Ustorm. Basically, it was like a jam band Super group. There were at least 10 musicians playing together from various jam bands. It was absolutely fantastic. And as an added personal bonus, I got multiple compliments on my knitted hat. I was also somewhat creepily hit on by a guy who looked about 30, but I shifted away from him to dance with someone closer to my age. So I'm not invisible after all! At least to guys who have been drinking steadily for at least the past four hours... Eh.
But anyway, so that was my weekend. I apologize for really not having any cancer updates. I've been feeling great. Oh, I guess I overheated during the concert, which probably wouldn't have happened otherwise... It was pretty hot and crowded, but I got some water and was much better. And now I am just spending today eating and resting. Tomorrow, I go back in to the hospital. I am not looking forward to it, but at least I have some good memories to take with me. I also have the prospect of Boston in Less Than Two Weeks! Woo! Haha, so I'm happy. As always, peace out.
