April 6, 2006 at 8:07 PMHi,
this is the end of a sad week.
Saturday I was in Klagenfurt (the capital of the state) which is 25 min. away from Villach, twice as big and a little less boring.
Ice skating was fun, though I was alone most of the time (the weather was too nice). After skating I went to the Volkskino ("people's cinema"). Grbavica won the golden bear in Berlin this year. It's the story of a bosnian girl who grows up thinking that her father was a war hero and discovers that her mother was raped in a POW camp.
Absolutely worth watching!
I also got le mepris two days ago and I can't get the film out of my head, it's just amazing! The soundtrack is one of the best I've ever listened to!
It was monday and tuesday that were sad. Maybe I was tired, maybe there's something missing in my diet...
...or maybe I should leave Villach!!
I've decided to search a new location in Ljubljana as soon as I finish writing my thesis. I don't care about the time, the troubles and the money that it will cost me moving again after just 7 months in Austria. Ljubljana is a wonderful city and Villach is simply too small and too boring.
...and I guess nobody in Librilla (the village were I come from) speaks slovenian ;)
Besides, it's near enough. I can drive everyday.
Tuesday it was Britten and Bach with the chamber orchestra. I played in the first row again (two girls who play in front of me don't need to come everytime). I played fine, I think, but maybe I should ask Claire, who was sitting next to me :)
Yesterday I had rehearsal with the kids of the music school and right after that my class with Iris. Music from 16:30 to 20:00. Today I've practiced from 18 to 21. Scales first and then the second Telemann sonata for two violins.
I'd like to play longer, but I'm afraid the neighbours may complain. I would also like to play another couple of hours in the morning, but I'm at work... :(
Ok, back to my laminar flames. I have to finish with that as soon as possible!
