    Six Seasons of the Ukulele Contest starting Feb 5 2012

    Haha- I love Weird Al with the fiery passion of a thousand suns! This is me meeting Al a couple summers ago. I grew up aspiring to make my own parodies someday, so when I finally met him it was so epic I started crying! Like a total spaz! But it was a beautiful moment. haha Sorry for the off...

    So you think you can uke?

    So someone just tweeted this link to me (with that rather aggressive "so you think you can uke?" tagline which made me think someone was mocking me at first...) and figured I would pass it along to you all! http://caamedia.org/blog/caam-events/2012/02/02/calling-all-wannabe-ukulele-stars/ It...

    Organic Chemistry- TGIB (Thank God it's Bio) -no uke content

    I'm still in grad school working on my masters in Literacy. I recently had to "literacy coach" a teacher for one of my classes. The teacher I worked with was a Biology teacher. One of the jobs of a literacy coach is to attempt to help the teacher with any issues they are having and offer...

    Turning Tables -Adele Uke Cover

    My 100th YouTube video! (though not all are uke related) After SEVERAL takes I finally made it through this without messing up/phone ringing/door slamming etc. and then when I watched it the video and audio weren't synced up. Very annoying. But not annoying enough to redo it apparently... haha...

    Starby gushing about her wedding (again)

    This isn't ukulele related.. but I needed to share it! At my wedding one month ago, my best friends (and former a cappella group members) surprised me by singing "Little Romance" by Ingrid Michaelson at our reception.

    Uke-ing on a podcast.

    This is uke/life related... When I was presenting at the NYS Reading Association conference an author/illustrator/podcaster saw me speaking and playing so she interviewed me about my work in Africa and then had me play the uke on her podcast. Here is the link to the blog post about the...

    Are college finals eating anyone else's soul?

    So, I've pretty much dropped off the face of the earth the last couple of weeks because I'm coming up to my last week of grad classes. I have a paper due at midnight but I'm procrastinating right now by complaining here. That's about it. I haven't been able to play my new eleuke as much as I...
