Not to worry, I wasn’t going to show any naughty bits for a shower picture! Everything has been tactically hidden. 😀
I drew the above picture a few months ago (you can tell from the old drawing style) but as always, I got distracted along the way till I finally remembered about it and published the squidoo page which it is meant for – “Top cover songs from my favourite youtube singers“.
Music is a huge part in my life. I took classical piano lessons for several years, learned guitar for 2 years (unfortunately I am not good with either of that because I hate to practise the same song till it is polished) and now while I am doodling full time, I find myself listening to more music than ever as it helps me to concentrate and inspires me. I reckon I listen to music about 6 hours a day now!
Secretly, I love to sing too! And I would sing in the bathroom all the time and belt the songs at the top of my voice during my “rebellious teenage years” because the bathroom has the best acoustics in the house. Alright, I no longer belt the sounds now (except at a karaoke room) because I realised that our walls are actually paper thin, and the neighbours and my family didn’t enjoy my free performance as much as I do. My dad would even ask me to shut up when I attempted to sing some rock songs. Granted that a rubber ducky voice for a rock song may not be the best blend but it is a worthwhile experiment. Oh well.
I never sing thinking that I will ever be a pop idol because my voice forbids me. Although I do think they may need my unique singing voice for cartoon characters. *winks and waves at the production team for minions*
To me singing is simply such a fun and therapeutic activity notwithstanding whether one is good at it. When I am happy, I can hum a dance tune, snap my fingers and do a happy dance. When I am angry, I can roar out out some rock songs (note to self: to muffle the noise with a towel or pillow) to let out all the negative energy. When I am depressed, I can choose an emotional song to express what I am going through with the song’s lyrics which I may not do as well with words. If it is up to me, all offices and work places should have mandatory singing breaks at least twice a day for employees’ well being and happiness. 😛
So start singing today! If you need some song ideas or free music, you can drop by my page – “Top cover songs from my favourite youtube singers“.
And on that note (pun intended), I am off for karaoke. 😀
