what a week....

April 1, 2006 at 5:46 PM

What a week. A whole bunch of big tests right after the break ....which so far I have done well on. Back to teaching again, Stuff flying at me from all directions! It's crazy! Probably the biggest triumph of the week is seeing my English Literature mark for this term so far. 100% :D I don't ever recall having had 100% in any courses that has been based on more than one assignment. Now it's the weekend. I've managed to stay on top of my homework and have only a very little bit (maybe an hours worth to do) to do and guess what....I'm sick. :( So much for practicing 5 hours today and tomorrow and trying out a bunch of repertoire that I am considering for a gig I am doing next weekend. *sigh* I guess I'll just have to cross my fingers that by this afternoon I'll be able to stand up for more than a minute without feeling like I am going to pass out. One thing I'm disappointed about too is that I had to cancel my violin lesson today. My teacher here is gone for the next month and a bit so she had arranged for it to be possible to for me to have a couple of lessons with my first ever violin teacher. I was looking forward to seeing what it would be like having lessons as an advanced player as in comparison to what I remember it being like when I was small and a beginner. Oh well...hopefully this week I'll be able to remedy that.

I don't know how but I always seem to get more done in a week where I am insanely busy than a week when I have little to do and keep on top of. I've started getting my application for a summer program together and I have started a new choral composition that I have full intentions of finishing. It's already over a minute long in length and I have a choir that has said they'd be willing to try something that I wrote so we'll see if I can make some more headway on that over the weekend and this coming week.

That's my ramble for the day!

always good to hear from you, any more new music in the pipes?

What type of new music do you mean Scott? I am working on a sonata by Glen Buhr these days which was written under 20 years ago. It's an amazing work! Very difficult though.
