Back from ENCORE, finally! Not that it wasn't fantastic, it was, but six weeks is a long time. Phew! While I was gone my family redid my room! (Took up the old carpet that had been peed on many a time by various household animals) and painted over the pink walls (it used to be a nursery) with light greenish bluish colors. I love it!

So anyway, about ENCORE. I'm really glad I went, I really learned a lot. I loved my teachers and the other kids that went there. I think I benefited from being around other musical kids that were my age, and some of them were really good (read, Curtis students). And it was nice being away from my parents, though I can't say I didn't miss them. It's great to be home! :-)
