Shosty 5 Saved My Pride

February 5, 2010 21:11

I am glowing with pride.

I'm assistant concermistress at my university.  I asked to sit concertmaster for Shostakovich 5 tonight so that I could have another go at the solos.  I thought for sure I could do them better than I did the summer before arriving at university.

I did.

I am so proud of myself, I can't sleep.  I don't ever feel like this, so I'm really inspired.  I don't ever want to be away from my violin, now!

Ding dong, the funk is gone... =D
