10 Signs You Grew Up As A Choir Kid, No Matter If You Were An Alto Or Soprano

Once a choir kid, always a choir kid.

10 Signs You Grew Up As A Choir Kid, No Matter If You Were An Alto Or Soprano

Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Don't pick something from "Glee"...please.

1. You know what a cummerbund is.

There's a good chance you have a stash of them hidden in the back of your closet.

2. Deep breaths never include shoulders, obviously.

Every *true* choir kid knows the importance of diaphragmatic breathing.

3. You catch yourself humming scales everywhere.

In line at the supermarket? Check. During commercial breaks? Check. On the toilet? It's highly possible.

4. 1, 1 2 1, 1 2 3 2 1 haunts your dreams.

Same goes for "red leather yellow leather" and "mommy made me mash my m+m's."

5. That one soprano...

You all know her. Maybe you were her. Either way, you could pick that voice out of a lineup.

6. Solo and Ensemble day was the best.

Missing school, dressing up, listening to a bunch of music, it was the best! Let's just hope you don't get a slightly off the walls judge who had a little too much coffee on lunch break.

7. Breaking out into Italian operettas is a frequent occurrence.

Particularly from the "24 Italian Songs and Arias" book. You know the one.

8. Riser formations have a special place in your heart.

So do getting on and off the risers quietly.

9. You know bathroom acoustics are the best.

But elevators are a close second.

10. Nailing a crazy piece never gets old.

There's no feeling quite comparable to finally getting all the way through a 23 page a cappella piece made up entirely of sounds that are not words in any language.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
