Two Days In

I started school on Wednesday. I'm a junior. That's so weird to say.

I had my first bassoon lesson, and it was wonderful! My new teacher is so much more helpful than my last teacher, and he doesn't expect me to practice all the time like my old teacher, either. So that's helpful, too.

Music History 3 is going to be a lot of fun, but also a challenge. That's the deal with a lot of things this semester. Everything is going to be challenging. My academic classes are Form and Analysis, Music History 3, Communication in Culture (Speech), and Keyboard Harmony. I'm also in the band, the choir, and the Contemporary Ensemble (Rock Band). And then I'm taking voice lessons and bassoon lessons. And giving my junior recital. And leading a band at church. And doing a small group at church.

Yes, I'm crazy.

So far, I'm keeping on top of it, and I've only stressed out majorly about 3 times so far in 2 days. I think we'll be alright.

Well, my laptop battery is about to die, so I'll shut this baby down for a while.

Love and nail polish,



  1. You're the coolest Junior I know. Probably of all time.

  2. That's so cool! Which grade are you leading at church?

  3. I guess I phrased that wrong. I meant Group 1:11 and all that goes with it (i.e., Mystery Nights, service projects, actually reading our assigned lesson...).

    I'm not quite cool enough to lead a small group! :)

  4. Who do you have for Communication in Culture? I had that last semester with... Someone who I can no longer remember the name of, but he was new, and he was also very awesome.

  5. I have Heather Hammond. I don't think she taught last semester because she told us that she has a 10-month old. She probably had maternity leave.

    But she seems pretty cool. She talks about the importance of the class (with which I agree), but she also read the syllabus with a "blah blah blah why do I have to read this boring crap that someone else wrote? blah blah blah" tone of voice (of which I approved).
