Good day to you all. I don't really have all that much to say except that I think it was a bad idea to be in 3 ensembles and that I am auditioning for concertmaster of my college orchestra in 3 weeks and I have a lot of practice to do. That is all.

The Longest Month is Yet to Come

April 11, 2006 08:35

Well everyone, that last two weeks have been extremely busy. I've had Orchestra Tour, which was amazing, and in total 11 concerts. I've had quizes, tests and homework. Also I haven't had a break for months and it's really starting to get to me. Instead of Spring Break I had orchestra tour, which was an absolute blast but very far from a break considering I got almost less rest over tour then I do when I'm at college. But now we arrive at Easter weekend where I will finally get a rest, although in another month I will have already completed my first year of college, with only 4 things that I think I've learned, Spanish, more about the violin, refined music theory skills, and that I'm really bad at ear training. I'm not sure if that justifies paying $30,000 a year or not, but I like it here so, as far as I know, I'm staying.
