This may come as a surprise to you, but I LOVE singing along to anything I hear just about anywhere and since I’ve been driving a ton more than usual, I’ve have ample time to sing my heart out. Lately I’ve been almost exclusively listening to Pentatonix’s EP which dropped a couple days ago and the one and only Beyonce so I hope you enjoy the following songs as much as I have!

I hope everyone one had an awesome week, here are the highlights of what I found on the internet this week:
The cute animal of the week is this hipster fishy. Hipster fishy says, “I came from this pet store in a really obscure part of Portland, I mean I could tell you the name but you’ve never heard of it.”
I adore this line of literary clothing!
Here’s your proper dose of good a’capella for the week:
Yes, this week there are 2 a’capella songs, I was thinking you needed a little bigger dose because it’s been a while since I posted any. This is Realtime, they were a local quartet who won some big titles but they recently got a new tenor (whom I am friends with, nbd or anything) and became Via Voice. Anyways, Loch Lomond is one of the songs that kept me singing as a kid because I heard a choir do it when I was in elementary school and decided on the spot that I wanted to be able to do it too. And actually, there are only 2 other songs that fall in this category and I’m working on one right now (details on that one later) 🙂
And, finally, I’ve spent most of my spring break thus far wishing I was even half as fierce as Beyonce.

I hope everyone’s weeks have been fabulous. Here are some things that I came across that are particularly awesome and felt like I should share…enjoy!
An easy how-to pastel your hair from Oh So Pretty! I’ve been considering adding some bright colors but this is was less expensive [and permanent] than dye.
If you like this underwater dog, you should follow this link to see the whole collection!
I’m really itching to sing a similar arrgangement of this…we’ll see if it’s in the cards for spring.
I don’t usually like Cracked.com’s articles too terribly much but I thought this one on what won’t make you happy in life was extremely well thought out. And as a bonus, they include a list of what really does, scientifically speaking, make you feel happy. (once again, I am a sucker for cute animals :P).
Ok, so I’d be lying if I said that Eric Whitacre’s virtual choir was new to me BUT he has been such a part of my week that I want to support his unqiue project by spreading the word. The most recent virtual choir submissions were due this last week or two (?) but I’m sure there will be more opportunities in the near future. For news, check out his facebook page!
Thanks for reading- I hope everyone has an awesome new week!
