Dorm Life

August 19, 2009 at 11:20 PM

 One hour of practice in, definitely one more to go!  That first hour felt so productive.  So much so, that I'm brimming over with happiness as cheesy as that sounds.  It's been awhile!  The Mozart that caused the frustration in my last entry has been going better.  That's probably a good thing since I'm playing it at my college orchestra audition.  

About that, I began dorm life yesterday.  What an adventure!  My roomie is delightful and we have a pretty nice set-up. I'm living on a performing arts floor which pretty much rocks my face off.  As of yet, I don't have my printer operational, but the important stuff is great.  More importantly, I love the atmosphere of this floor.  HOORAY!  

Starting my first year of college, I know this is going to be quite the transition.  I'm going to be challenged in every possible way.  And it scares the CRAP out of me.  You know what, though?  I'm going to be okay.  I'm already running into people I have previously met.  (That's typical of me.  I'm VERY social.)  In spite of the weirdness I have felt, I also feel that this is incredibly right.  Time will tell, but I think it will tell me what I already know.
