Suzi’s Cover Letter:
Dear Musical Marvels,
I feel I have leadership abilities. And it would by my pleasure and an honor to lead your beautiful sounds! I played in the band in high school. I was *this* close to making the first row in flutes, but the other girls ahead of me apparently have good knee pads because… whatever.
I always thought the conductor was the coolest. He gets to wear that cool tux. Like, I want to wear some badass gown with a tiara and have a wand that’s all sparkly and stuff. I can keep good time and I love music. Plus, I know how to jazz up a performance. My conducting will be so legendary.
But I don’t know what an orchestra has to do with trains. Maybe concerts on the train? That would be cool.
Follow My Stick,
I'm just your average girl who wants a kick-ass life and... love! If I could be a superhero, that would be AWESOME! I'm currently a "phone actress" looking for a really cool career. Don't get me wrong-- I love giving a hand to dudes who need someone to chat with. Everybody needs somebody! But, my parents keep telling me I need a respectable job. Sigh.
