I got up at 6am. I am practicing. I am taking a break, using that time to write an amazingly short blog on I'm hooked. Or addicted. Or obsessed. Or insane. It's all the same.

Good Times...

March 19, 2008 21:16

I went to NYC for the first time on Sunday.

My mom was surprised because usually I hate giant, smelly cities with an overbearing population. However, I loved it. I walked down the streets as if Ihad lived there for years. I went to an amazing violin maker named Gregory Wylie who rehaired my bow. I got an exclusive tour of CNN. (Wonderful, I so want to work or intern there.) I met many AP reporters and business news execs. And I saw a lot of movies. I was so sad to leave.

Pretty cool! But life at school has started again. Right now, I am writing almost six stories for the next issue of the student newspaper, eight essay for english classes, 5 pieces for communication classes and many essays for summer internships and workshops. I am practicing about five hours a day in order to prepare for two upcoming recitals and a masterclass, and I go to all of my four hundred thousand classes including work and have limited my recreation. (Sorry, Tom, I tried.)

What a life! Great, I love it. GOODTIMES.
