So recent conversations have compelled me to believe that an update might be in order. I'm in a really good place right now, I think. I'm behind on a lot of stuff because I had all these aspirations of doing a zillion things over Reading Break, but instead I work full time and caught up on quality time with my homies. Cairan and I watched way too much 24, Lauren and I had some crazy late nights on the town, Amanda and I hosted a really fun party at my house, and I sight read Tchaikovsky 4 in orchestra. Since then, I've been practicing like a mofo because it's fucking hard! But in a delightful, exciting way. So even though I didn't get a lot done, I really feel as though Reading Break did me good.
Three is so the magic number for me. I'm working three shifts a week, taking three classes, and I'm in three ensembles. I'm still busy, but I'm doing well in all my classes, and enjoying the music I'm playing. Work is going really well, Romin told me he's never seen closes as good as mine, and last nights shift was killer. Kulbir's average check was nearly $10! I told her to suggestive sell and she loves me and went to town. Kulbir is such a sweetheart... she brings me samosas on my shifts and when I was sick she like mothered me. I work with some awesome kids too, and I like the rest of the management team. That's not to say that there aren't things about work that make me angry, or that I'm going to stay with McDonald's forever, but for right now, I'm quite content. This will be my last semester working, and then next year I'm doing only school. My dad's taking my car this weekend, so from now till the end of August all my money will go towards paying tuition and stuff for next year. Scary. I'll miss having money to spare, having extra cha ching this year was nice. Like how cool is it to be able to blow $90 on shoes and not even have to worry about it?
This last few months have taught me that I actually am quite musical and know what I'm talking about and have musical opinions that matter. My big failure last April left me feeling inadequate for a long time, and those feelings stopped me from remembering why I liked music so much in the first place. Singing and playing and listening to some beautiful and brasstastic music has fixed that. I started to play the Tuba again for Symphonic Winds, and that has been so much fun. It takes so much air I feel dizzy afterwards, it's great, it's like being high but without having to pay for drugs. I'm looking forward to my Music Ed interview, I'm anticipating it will go well. As far as math goes, I'm taking it easy, only doing Stats this semester. I'm making up for only taking three classes by taking some summer classes. CSC 115 will be scary seeing as it's been two years since I took CSC 110... ah well. I'll pimp out my comp sci friends for help.
Peace out, homes.
