Hi there! So I'm BACK yet again!! after another little "stretch". But this time I'm going to share a bit of a funny story with you all. So why did I (at 5:24AM no less) just get into a full on altercation with an automated service?! It all started off innocently, I was simply calling the USPS number to track a package that should have been here since YESTERDAY and wanted to basically let someone know that I was less than happy and would like to be able to pick it up instead (I won't be home when it's supposed to get here, but am SICK of playing the waiting game "I'm sick (V)Ron" -Sammie from Jersey Shore voice. So I think maybe if I call early enough, I can stop them before it's too late...
I get on the phone with this pompous excuse of an automated woman and it went downhill from there. I can't even begin to describe how smug she was!! She asks me my tracking number and then gives me absolutely NOTHING I need to hear, talking about "OHhhhh...it's on the way...more info is updated overnight...wooptie woo" And so I cut her off! "Customer Service!!" and THAT's where it begins. For the sake of brevity, I'll call her "Rita"
Rita: I'm sorry I don't understand you, did you say "track a package"
Me: no, "Speak with an agent"
Rita: Is your package a domestic or international package
Me: Customer Service!!
Rita: I don't understand what you're saying to go to the main menu, please say "main menu" to track a package, please say "track a package"
Me: Look I wanna talk to somebody REAL!
Rita: Please say "Yes" or "No"
Me: *slams desk* You know WHAT!!! Customer Service!!
Rita: I'm sorry...I didn't get that did you say "track a package"?
(And here is where I REALLY lost it...because she kept speaking in this "calm" voice as if to say "Sir please calm down"...and I had HAD IT!)
Me: YEAH you RIGHT you sorry, I said I wanna talk to customer service, I don't want no "yes" no "no" you betta put me on this LINE!! (As I'm now furiously pressing the "0" and "*" keys on my phone)
(And as if to intentionally cut ME off she says)
Rita: I'm sorry you've reached the offices outside of business hours please call back at 8am (and you KNOW she had the most ignorant emphasis placed on the number "8")
Me: o_O Yeah? Well Good Riddance!!
So there I was...left with nothing....so I decided to write about it.
And "Rita" you BET let me catch you out here in these streets!!

Oh hey yall!...hahahaha...I'm back with a new post (a VERY brief one though...I'll do better in the upcoming weeks) but ANYWAY. As you all know I'm singing, and I'm about to really FAST forward with my pursuit, and I was fortunate enough to have a photoshoot today to combine with some other components to comprise what will become my EPK (Electronic Press Kit). And here's a sample of one of the first edited images. Gotta dart out but I hope you enjoy it!

Where have you guys BEEN?! It's been MONTHS!! cmoooooon!!! (lol). Well this post is just to inform you all that I have decided that in 2011 I will (no matter how difficult) post something here at LEAST once a month! (holds for applause)....
Okay Okay okay....
Since I last talked to you all I've done SOOOO much living!! I've discovered I'm allergic to EVERYTHING and what I thought had been colds that sneak up on me year round were REALLY allergic reactions! I got a job!! I quit my job!! I made it through 4 rounds of auditions for season 10 of American Idol. Jennifer Lopez says I have a beautiful smile. Randy Jackson says I have a good voice!! I got CUT from being in the running for American Idol. I was devastated. I read "The Alchemist". I realized that God's hand is everywhere in my life and started to look at the bigger picture of things. I've continued my vocal lessons (which I started up DAYS after I made it through the first round of Idol). I've found a great deal of freelance opportunities (thank GOD). I was accepted into the SAE Institute in NYC to study to become an audio technician (so I can produce all my own music). I went to see Black Swan. I decided to put school on hold for now in light of some new advances on the audition sector (none of which I can really talk about yet)...but they're BOTH verrrrrrry good!! I created my own website www.willwhiteonline.com I discovered David Bowie, Billy Idol, and Boy George, and became a fan. And I moved!!! (to a new beautiful and swank studio in Newark, NJ)...it oozes inspiration.
(my new house...there's a CRAZY view of NYC)
Welp that was the fast forwarded version of it all (who knows MAYBE I'll dive into details on another day...but right now...I can't bring myself to do it (it's 2:43am).
Anyway...I love you all so much and want to thank you for being patient with me!!
2011...Let's DO this!!
LESSON: It's never too late to do what you set out to do...
