Singing with Josh in New Haven

on November 20, 2010 - 1:34pm

When I saw that Josh would be performing a series of four shows, and that one of them would be in Connecticut, I made the decision that driving seven hours to see him would be totally worth it.

Then the videos started coming up from the concerts. I saw that on two separate occasions, he'd had people come onstage and sing with him. I freaked out. I knew I had to try and do this, too. I'm a junior voice major at a conservatory, and Josh was the biggest inspiration I had to go into voice in the first place. He and his music have meant so much to me for a very long time now, and one of my highest goals as a singer was to get the chance to sing WITH him. I never thought it would happen. So I knew that I had to take this chance.

It's all Been Done... lol

on February 24, 2009 - 11:16pm

So I sent off the chain on Thursday, and I am VERY excited to see what happens.

Thank you all for participating, we ended up with around 50 chain links including the ending-links I designed.

Next year maybe we'll try something different... maybe I'll get a puzzle made with pictures of all of us or something. We'll see. That would be COOL, lol. Or maybe we'll do the chain again. We'll see how much he likes it. I certainly had a great time with it. It was SO much fun.

Now I have to get ready for mid terms and Spring Break... SO much fun! (well, the latter of the two is fun, lol)

Hey everyone!

We have 46 participating members so far!!

I would love to have more people before I send out the email with my address on the 13th. If you would like to participate, please let me know.

The details in this project have changed oh so many times, lol. But now they're final and I cannot wait to actually start this project.

For those of you who have sent me messages you would like me to write out for you, I will take pictures of them all and post them to the Paper Chain project thread on the boards.

New Year and Updates

on December 31, 2008 - 10:06am

Happy New Year!

Here in Rockville we're ringing in the new year with 40 mph winds and falling trees. Branches falling on cars and small children. It's not been a good day.

This year overall, though, has been amazing. Good things that happened this year:
1. Getting Golde
2. Getting into Shenandoah
3. Fiddler on the Roof in general
4. Graduation
5. Beach week
6. Singing my first operatic aria in front of an audience
7. Seeing Equus
8. Meeting Josh. amazing.

This was a good year for me. (And an even better one for Josh, I'm so happy for him.)

The birthday project is still going strong! We have 34 people so far, but I want to have more than that before I send out the email next week with all the details and my address.

If you want to participate, let me know! I would love to have you!

Birthday Project and Just Saying Hello

on December 23, 2008 - 5:14pm

So I have been off of school since the 12th. My jury was the LAST thing I had to do... it was so nerve wracking, but still fun.

I started a Paper Chain Link birthday project for Josh... it's pretty cool. I've set it up that each chain link will have a message from a different Grobanite on it. There are already 31 people (including myself) doing the project. It's actually a lot of fun.

the thread for the project is here...
http://board.friendsofjoshgroban.com/index.php?showtopic=48737

it wont let me link it lol, but i figure if you want to check it out, you can :)

I'm also making him a scarf for his birthday, lol. Its dark green and really soft. It's about halfway done.... sort of.

Happy Holidays to everyone! Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa.... Happy... Solstice? (do you say "happy" or what, for that one??)
