Forget auditioning to become a musical theatre major. Forget studying at Northwestern. Forget my dream dorm room. Forget my college Pinterest board. Forget performing on Broadway. Forget living a relaxed life in the United States. Just forget it all. I've already started saving up to move far away from the States and over to Asia.
Okay, so maybe five dollars won't get me a plane ticket. But I'm in the process of applying for a job at my local library, so I'll just use the money I was going to put in a bank account for college and put it in my travel fund instead! And I'll need to go to school to study Japanese. Man, I did not think this through.
Okay, scratch that. I won't ditch the ACT. I'll still take vocal lessons, gymnastic lessons, and audition for plays (I'm auditioning to play Natalie in Next to Normal in a few months, I'm auditioning for a Nutcracker-esque musical soon, and I'm already in Les Miserables!). I'll still keep my grades up (although, I think I'm developing a minor case of senioritis-- and I'm not even a senior yet!). Looks like Japan is gonna have to wait.
But still. I think I have found my best friends. They don't know it, but we're best friends.
When I was little, I used to want to join a sorority and live in a house with sorority sisters. However, I already have biological sisters, and if I can't stand having two, how am I supposed to survive with that times ten? But I think I want to live in the Goose House.
Goose House is a band of (at least) eight people. I don't know if they all live together or they just like to record in that house, but it doesn't matter. Because I'm going to move to Japan and live with them. I mean, they've helped me with my Chinese summer homework (上海 and 花，meaning "Shanghai" [the city] in Chinese, and the next character, "Hana," being the same character in Chinese and meaning "flower"). They've helped me find hair and fashion inspiration. They've helped me discover new music. They've helped me bring out my guitar (one that's been collecting dust for far too long). So it's obvious we should be friends.
Enough talking, here's some of their music!
Here is a list of songs I would love to hear them cover:
"Hanabi" by Ikimono-Gakari
"Life is Like a Boat" by Rie Fu
"My Pace" by SunSet Swish
"Daisy" by Stereo Dive Foundation
So, what do you think of Goose House?
