Being Brave take two

I tried to post this on Tuesday, but after having trouble getting the clip to load properly (plus having a pretty heavy case of the self-doubts) I ended up scrapping the post. But thanks to a couple of lovely people, I am trying again. Hopefully the clip works this time!

It's been a little western front-esque here lately. I've been using the precious daytime sleep to play around with music a bit more. One of my absolute favorite bloggers, Lauren from Ninja Tales, has been raving recently about a band Bastille and their album Bad Blood. A couple of days ago I finally listened to them, and I really liked their music. I especially loved one of their songs, Pompeii, and I even found a chord chart for it that I could play! (If you knew how rudimentary my musical skills are, you'd understand just how easy that song must be!). But anyway, I ended up being able to play and sing it which was a bit exciting, (to me anyway).

I have never been super comfortable with video footage of myself. I toyed briefly with the idea of doing a vlog after someone (I think it might have been Essentially Jess, who is a vlogging queen) mentioned it. But I wasn't brave enough.

However, now I have decided to be brave (or stupid) and have recorded myself singing the Bastille song Pompeii. And I thought I'd post it, to say... Hello! Because music is a pretty big part of my life, and I loves it. I don't really read music, I just love to sing and am blessed with a good ear, and thanks to year or so of piano lessons I can tinker a bit on the keyboard. I only recorded it on my phone, so it's a little dodgy, but regardless of how good it is, I just really wanted to share it with you.
