Well, my car turns out to be not so bad. The company i took my wheel alignment to tried to rip me off. Of course the fuel line was rusting - it's surface rust. The brakes were only half worn, and the ball joints weren't very worn, not so much that they couldn't do a wheel alignment.

That's good to hear. I'll probably keep saving for a car anyway, but it does put my mind at ease, knowing that the car isn't likely to blow up while I'm driving it :)

Tried to do some practice today, but I just wasn't getting anywhere. One of those days where no matter whatever you try, it doesn't seem to work. It feels like you're doing more harm than good. I ended up watching a bit of Cosi fan tutte, and then The Mikado.

I'll do a bit more composition tonight, I'm glad with how it's coming. However, because my computer's died (I'm using my dad's), I don't know how it sounds, so I hope it sounds good, but I'm not certain. As far as I can tell it sounds good. Theoretically, it should sound good. It has been a good excercise in writing down what I hear in my head.
