I recently found a gel pen and sticker-clad journal that provided me with a not-so-extensive list of my favourite musical artists from 2001. Topping the charts was The Beatles, at a close second was Sloan, and rounding off the collection was Weezer. Though my 8-year old self didn’t quite realize it at the time, being ~*totally indie*~ was going to be a short-lived experience for me; because at 21 years old, my top three musical artists are somewhere along the lines of Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, and Lana Del Rey. I realize everything I do on this blog is completely irrelevant to music and all vocal-related endeavours, but I think this pseudo-analogy says a lot about anything and everything.

With a Bachelor of Design degree under my belt, I spend my days working as the Editorial Manager at MTV Canada’s blog, FORA, and my nights rapping along to Nicki Minaj, perusing Internet Websites, perfecting my GIF-making technique, reading culturally-enriching books, and writing (private) and self-deprocating entries in my Livejournal account (circa 2006). I do variations of the above during the day too, I just don’t like to publicly advertise it.
