Hello, all... Just joined VB and I'm really looking forward to talking with everyone. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I am a vegan (three days and counting, lol) and I am LOVING it... I'd experimented with ovo-lacto vegetarianism before but found that it was not completely satisfying, so I finally got the willpower to make the switch to vegan and very quickly decided that I am never going back. I am a big animal rights activist (although with my hectic schedule, it is not horribly "active" -- I have to content myself with my permanent boycott of animal goods) and would love to see the world full of veggies of all descriptions... But that's the story of ALL of our lives, I believe, so I'll talk about me for a minute.<br><br><br><br>
I'm technically a student now, but in all actuality, I am a musician. I have sung in formal groups since I was five years old and I have loved every second of it... I also play the recorder and have some inexplicable aptitude for it in addition to my singing. I hope to major in vocal performace/Early Music and I can not wait to start the rest of my life as a musician -- it is my calling.<br><br><br><br>
I'd say that is MORE than most of you want to hear about me, so I will leave you with this: I am irrationally excited about joining the group and I hope that I will hear from you all (and you will be hearing from me, lol) very soon.

Hey, Chiaraluna, I'm irrationally excited about you joining the group!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
My roommate is a music teacher and a big fan of the recorder. Every year or so he tries to teach me, but I have absolutely no ear for music nor timing and he always gives up after a lesson or two. LOL.

Hey there -- welcome! I initially went to college to be a music teacher but never finished my degree. I played recorder and tuba! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
I can do a mean "All Good Gifts" from Godspell on the recorder. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> You've probably progressed way past that.<br><br><br><br>
Welcome aboard!

Perhaps, but it's still very cool that you play and recognize it as an instrument, lol, unlike many of my friends... Makes me happy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
