Yeah... She's not the worst "stage mom" I've had, but it was definitely annoying. The worst one I had was a mom who actually refused to pay me because she said I listened to her daughter singing too much. -.- Sorry, that's kind of how these things work. My students sing, I identify problems, give a correction, and have them sing again so I can hear whether they're making the adjustment I asked them to. But I have to LISTEN and make decisions based on what I hear.

The problem is parents expect everything to be perfect on the first lesson and when something doesn't sound absolutely brilliant they think it's ME doing something wrong. But it doesn't work that way. It takes a whole lot more than half an hour to improve sound quality and a lot of the improvement happens outside of the lesson when students PRACTICE.

But these parents just drive me NUTS.

They are nuts. And terrible parents. I don't like parents that try to turn their kids into stars just to profit. They need therapy

Keep yourself clean and bright, for you are the window through which you must see the world.

I know it's difficult but hang in there. Something will come up soon. It just takes time, I guess. Good luck.

Awake after dreaming about a big, dangerous snake in my house. We fed it a poisonous frog and it died. *goes back to bed*

My female axolotl is really really lethergic, more than usual :/ and she won't eat. well, she does but it's really really slowly and won't take it from my hand she eats it from the bottom of the tank. She just sits there and i'm worried but she looks okay and I don't know why she's stressed. Personally I think the old owner looked after them poorly.. But anyways i'm really worried I might get a new female as I want babies too :/
