Play an instrument or sing?

Since 8 my mom forced me to go to a piano class, and do recitals. I do hate it cause I wanted to play rather play the stup*d piano. In HS, I asked my mom to buy me a guitar, then asked my neighbor to teach to play the guitar. I learned strumming and plucking. My first piece was "Leaving on a Jetplane", I think I still remember it. Then I learned to play some of the Beatles songs and "All Apologies" by Nirvana. Then eventually I stopped playing the guitar for some reasons. Ever since I like to sing, I remember when I was a kid, I used to sing-along with the Nursery Rhyme songs, and oh yes, I remember every single line, "Humpy Dumpy", "Three Blind Mice", "Jack & Jill" and a lot more. As I grow, I like to sing, not really as good as Celine Dion or the soprano type, but I could sing like Rihanna's and Pussycat type of songs though. But you know I think it'd be really cool if I could do like play the instrument and sing while doing it.

What a hard question. I'm both a guitarist and a singer. I enjoy both as much but I think that I am more skilled with my voice than the guitar. But I cannot sing the same kind of genre I love to play on the guitar so it's a tough choice. I would rather play guitar in a band but at home I rather sing. Lets put it like that :)
