The fifth question of the series askes:
When did you last sing to yourself? To someone else?
When I am happy, I sing a lot to myself. Then, I also dance like nobody is watching. And thankfully nobody is =). At the moment, I don’t sing to myself so often, or I do it for a different reason. As I wrote about in a previous entry, music is a means to process my emotions and feelings. So, the last time I sang to myself was while I was in my hotel room. I was sad, and my emotions welled up and I needed an outlet for the energy rising within. I sang along the lines of Over it by Macklemore. It is an intense experience, because I feel my emotions very clearly while singing and immersing myself in the music. I hope I will sing more to myself again. But this time out of happiness =)
The last time(s) I sang to someone was to sing for their birthday. Nothing fancy, just the classic happy birthday. Once for my mom and another time for my ex-girlfriend. I don’t really know if it is bearable to hear me sing. But, I like singing for people who mean a lot to me. And so far, nobody called Amnesty International for a human rights violation =) Or they are just too polite. Anyhow, singing for myself and others is something I enjoy doing and it is even better when you sing together.
So, when was the last time you sang to yourself or for someone else?
Have a wonderful day and take care =)
