On Voices

I haven't been posting about school here, because I don't want to turn this into a gurgling font of headache-induced negativity again.  So instead, let me talk about voices.

I recently signed up for Skype, since the cell phone reception here is worse than terrible.  Likely because this apartment building is built like a bomb shelter.  So, I thought I'd see what my voice sounded like these days.  (To be honest, this is in part because I was considering doing a small podcast.)  I recorded a bit and... holy crap it's bad.  Not terrible exactly, but there's a definite nasal quality to the whole thing.  However, I did notice it sounded better than the last time I tried this, probably because of the surgery on my deviated septum a couple years back.  But still.

I kind of wonder what causes that nasal tone of voice, and if anything can be done about it.  Is it something that can be consciously controlled, or is it purely biological? Perhaps it has to do with having to wear glasses all the time?  Maybe something to pursue when I'm not so busy with studying.

Another part of me wonders if it's entirely unrelated and just somehow a factor of the microphone, since I'm using the laptop's built-in microphone.

Oh well.
