Did I ever mention I got in all my college applications? Goldsmiths, RCM, and RAM. I'm nervous, but, I think I'm going to go there regardless. Try to intern somewhere, then re-apply for colleges the year after. Then, I'll be able to catch the Goldsmiths and Trinity deadlines, as well as RCM and RAM. That's what I keep telling myself I'll do, anyway. :-P
Oh I had one of the worst dreams last night. Performance dreams. I don't recall the song, it seems like it was a mix between Bruch 3rd movement and... something. It was so real. I seemed to know the piece the first five minutes but after that it all fell apart, I didn't know it at ALL. And I don't think I was blanking it out, I really hadn't practiced it, or even learned it! So I was up there for who knows how long, winging runs up and down and trying to remember old cadenzas I'd learned. There was also this teenage guy up on the stage, sitting, and mouthing to me "you're going down!!" or something to that extent. When it's finally over, I walk/run down the aisle to the bathroom, and say to the two people in there "that was inequivocally my worst performance ever." and there was the guy again, in the women's bathroom (?!) saying it would be better next time, and offering comfort. I woke up then, felt relieved it was a dream, and thought it quite odd. I don't have performance nightmares very often. This one sure was interesting.
It's quite the perfect studio, actually. My first, too. It's like getting a nice first car. Not many are so fortunate. And I'm excited - I'm starting a new student. I'm having visions of a student recital in the summer...
