So, yeah… it’s been a while since I last posted on here, but that’s just to be expected with me, I suppose. I hope all of you are doing well! Thought I’d do a bit of catching you up with Kristie’s world as of late.
I recently wrapped up my latest project, which I entitled The 12 Days of Kristie (emulating the 13 project), where I did a cover of a different Christmas song for the 12 days leading up to Christmas Day. Here’s the playlist: (the next video plays after you finish the one you’re on.)
As for The 13 Project’s EP… I honestly haven’t thought about it until right now. I need to listen to the mixes I have before I start back school and determine if any changes need to be made. Sorry that I’m so tardy on that.
Christmas was good this year! It’s always good to hang out with the family for a couple of days and eat some good food. My parents got me a Keurig coffee maker for when I move off to Mobile next year, so I was pretty excited about that! I also got some nice boots, an iPhone 4s (an upgrade from an old Blackberry, so I was pretty stoked!), and the Insanity workout. That’s right.. Insanity. From everything I’ve heard, this workout is sure to kick my butt, but I want to to do it because yes, I want to lose some weight, but mostly because I want to prove to myself that I can commit to something that’s tough and challenging and stick with it. I have an issue with staying committed to things (need I remind you of The 13 Project EP? haha), so I want to do this for the mental challenge of it all. We’ll see how it turns out.
Here’s some news I haven’t posted on here yet: I’m in a musical! That’s right! Jones is doing a production of Smoke on the Mountain this Spring, and I’ve been cast as Vera Sanders, the mother of the family. The whole musical takes place in an old Baptist church in the 1940s/1950s ish time period. The Sanders family has come to the church to sing gospel songs, so we’ll be singing a lot of old hymns and what not and playing our own instruments as we’re able. So far, I’m to play the mandolin on quite a few and the ukelele on one. Haha. I’m kinda nervous because this will be my first real musical to be a part of, but I know I’m gonna have good, solid direction on everything, so I’m in good hands.
Because of that, I’m sure my posts on here and YouTube will probably be less than they have been. (If you’re not subscribed to my channel on YouTube, TheLittleRedDuck, you should really change that.)
Today, my parents (as a late Christmas gift) took my cello to MS Music to see if it could be repaired! (In case I never told you guys, my cello fell a few months back and broke, so I haven’t been able to play it for a while.) Turns out that it can! Super excited about that. I’ll be giving Emily Hope Price a run for her money soon.
This coming up Sunday will be my last Sunday at Pathway Community Church. I feel like school is becoming more and more time consuming, and even while I know that my time at Pathway hasn’t been in vain, and that ultimately I do want to do something with church music, right now I need to focus my energies on my school studies. I felt like my ministry at Pathway was being diminished by how much time I had to commit to school, and I knew with adding 3 more classes and nightly rehearsals to my next semester, I just needed to rest. So, I’ll be exiting a season tomorrow to enter into another. The Lord definitely used my time there to teach me things about leading worship and working with others. I look forward to the next opportunity I have to be a part of a worship team.
I suppose that’s enough randomness for today! Just wanted to catch up so that if I wanted to do a proper blog post before I returned to school, then I would have that option. Have a beautiful day!
