It's just not been a good day for me.

Despite what I thought was a solid tryout, I didn't land a solo for the Joy! performance. This disappoints me, not because I'm a diva who thinks I require a solo in every concert or that I have the best voice in the chorus. What disappoints me is hearing some of the other tryouts that landed solos, and wondering what the directors thought process is for doling them out. Some that I've spoke with feel that there's political motives involved (read: guys that donate large sums of money magically get solos, regardless of talent they may or may not have.) I understand that I'm not the only person in the damn chorus, and that I'm not going to have a solo every concert. That doesn't bother me. What bothers me is the idea of being passed over not based on talent, but by the size of my donation.

It feels petty to bitch about this. I really love being in the chorus and performing again. But I have to wonder what the point is of trying out if there are secret motives for everything.
