Violin y Espanol Problemas

January 10, 2006 10:24

Ok, so maybe taking spanish 102 during J-term was a bad idea. I can't keep up with it, we had a quiz today which I know I completely bombed but I'm not actually incredibly worried, I'll just make up for it on the other 3 quizes, mid-term and final. Most of the reason I did so bad is my fault though, I had a little too much fun over the weekend and not enough studying, I also stayed up far too late most nights and got like 12 hours of sleep in over the weekend making my study time last night very short becase all I wanted to do was sleep, and I went to bed at 10:30 last night. I hope I can make up what I lost.

Now onto violin. It seems I have no interest in practicing. Actually, I want to practice but when I get over to the music building I decide I don't want to practice or I just get bored with it and end up doing scales for an hour and then I quit. I'm not sure why I don't feel like practicing, I just feel like being lazy I guess when I'm not working in the Cafeteria or doing something with Spanish. Just as a little side-note, as I write this I'm thinking in spanish and english, luckily it's all coming out in English. Anyway, yeah, I don't really want to do anything right now either, I want to practice, I love playing the violin but yet I don't want to do it. Actually, right now I want to take a nap until symphony but I can't, I need to do spanish because we are doing a chapter every 3-5 days and thus it's hard to keep up with. Have a wonderful day everyone.

Hi everyone. I am back at school and I met my roommate and he is great. He's pretty funny and very personable so I think we'll be ok, heck we might even become friends, actually, i'm guessing we will. I haven't played violin much in the last week and a half but we have symphony tonight and I can't wait to read the Shostakovich Cello Concerto No. 1, I love that piece so much. Anyway, I have some spanish to review, I haven't used it for nearly a month so I really need to get some practice in. So I will update more later, when the internet on my computer works, I'm using my roommates now. Have a good day!!
