About

About M:

I vacillate between forcefully avoiding labels and trying them on for size before mostly discarding them again. Definitions are hard. People aren’t definable. I’ve been, at times, an actress. A writer. A musician. These are the three I value, the three I cling to, the three that I’ve lost and found over and over for my entire life. I’ve considered careers in all three.  I still kind of hope to have a life in all three, because I’m starting to realize that the two can be separate.

I prefer to keep this blog separate from my real-world identity; although I try very hard to keep my writing as honest as possible, I can be incredibly shy about connecting what I’ve written to my everyday persona. That doesn’t mean I mind people reading if they know me in real life – I’m sure I’ll tell people about it eventually – but I’d rather not outwardly connect this blog to my real name right now, so if you know me out there, please don’t share this blog’s address as “M. Lastname’s blog” without asking me.

About this Blog:

Singsincolor is a variant on a screen name I’ve had for a while on the internet. A lot of my previous/concurrent screen names have something to do with colors; I’ve got kind of a thing about colors. Nothing fascinating, like synaesthesia or anything. No real quirk — I just like them. All of them. I stopped having the time and inclination to express myself through visual art somewhere around junior high, though occasionally I go on a Photoshop spree for my own amusement and paint my nails way too many absurd colors for someone who occasionally pretends to be a responsible adult.

About the blog’s subject: I wanted a place to talk about the experience of returning to school and finally discovering the thing that I felt I could throw myself into wholeheartedly and happily, despite the challenges inherent to pursuing music for kind-of the first time a little bit later than most people. (Just a little bit; I have technically been a musician since I was… really, really young, but not always so focused. I never considered myself a musician. I still kind of don’t, two years in. It’s a process.)

Anything else? Ask me. 🙂

    Hi SIC,
    I’ve decided to follow any WordPress members who commented on or liked my past posts, in an effort to be more community minded. Don’t feel compelled to hit me back, but if you do I hope you enjoy and say hi.

      Thanks for commenting! I read often but rarely comment, myself, and am still getting used to how the whole WordPress community works. 🙂 I hope you enjoy what you read here.

      – M
