It’s no secret, like many domainers, I have a second career. Mine happens to be in a non-office environment, as a musician in the United States Army Band. It’s a great job—it allows me to do what I love, paid off my student loans, and affords me the free time to pursue other interests.
For the next week, I have two rehearsals a day because I’m a featured performer in the band’s annual 1812 Overture concert at the Sylvan Theater on the National Mall on August 17th. I’m performing a piece that was written especially for me, titled “Brazilian Holiday” that is based on folk songs from Brazil, where my father is from. Needless to say, I’ll be playing in front of a large crowd right by the Washington Monument, so I really need to be prepared.
If there are decreased posts and tweets this week, that’s why. Don’t worry, I’ll still be around – I just need to prioritize and devote most of my attention to my music this week. Now that I’m thoroughly addicted to Twitter, I’ll still be keeping up with everyone’s tweets!
Here’s what else is new:
After DomainFest, I a MUCH lighter schedule to look forward to, as well as a 3-week tour to Pittsburgh, Cincinnatti, and Grand Rapids, MI, in September that will give me some much-needed downtime to contact end-users and put myself through a self-conducted “Domaining Crash Course,” including reading everything I can get my hands on from DNJournal, Morgan Linton, Elliot Silver, Bruce Marler, and others.
