I’ve just started psychology volunteering, but it looks as though it’s gonna be a long haul. I need cash in order to fund it. Time was, you took on a job and they trained you. Now, you pay for your own training and then work for free….
I have been toying with the idea of taking on some badly paid 9-5 but I’m worried that won’t give me enough flexibility to do the volunteering, which kinda defeats the purpose. Then I thought, sod it, I’ve spent all this time trying to get my singing technique up and running and now that I finally feel really confident with it, I should try and make some money with it.
Last year, Sally Holliday, my pal and photographer extraordinaire, and I got a few gigs in my local area singing classical and Christmas songs as a duo. It was pretty good fun and our busking session on Christmas eve went really well, so we thought we’d revisit it this year.
Last weekend, we sang through some numbers, decided on a name, Elowen (we just thought it sounded nice) grabbed a couple of matching ballgowns and headed to Piercefield woods for a photo shoot! Recordings and website to follow, watch this space….
