OOOOKAY it’s been a while. School has started again and I’ve been absolutely swamped with work and homework and classes and…. yeah. It’s all going pretty well, though, can’t complain. My classes are:
intermediate tap dance- yeah, I’m working my way to being able to tap like Gene Kelly. It’s getting there.
new testament- I read the four gospels in two weeks, go me!
World civilizations to 1500- actually pretty interesting. We’re still on the paleolithic era. Cave paintings and whatnot
psychological statistics- the only math class I’ll ever have to take in college. My professor is awesome, lecture is easy to understand, the hours and hours of homework are hellish.
intro to art and drawing- its for non-majors, so they don’t expect us to be actually good at art, which is great. it’s fun, and it’s fulfilling a GE! wooo. although I do have to lug around a huge drawing board and pad of paper, which gets annoying. maybe I’ll post some pictures of my sketches and stuff.
university strings- I was aiming to sign up for the orchestra a level up from this one, but it was full. Last year it was a bit below my skill level. But this year, whew! We are playing some hard stuff. I’m third chair. We’re accompanying soloists on a vivaldi concerto that I’ve played before, but then we’re doing Bartok’s Romanian Folk Dances, which aren’t too bad (and I might play the solos!), but the Tchaikovsky…. man. I can barely play that. The sight-reading was just terrible. At least now I’ve got something to practice.
So yeah, those are my classes. Fun stuff, huh? Work is going well… we’ve started football season, which is, can I just say, not fun in the least. Last game day, the game was at 1, some of us had to get there at 1 in the morning. On a saturday. Gah. Luckily I got to come in at 4, but I stayed later. We make food for all the VIP lounges and the president’s loge and stuff…. it was fun. Before the season started we got to take a tour of the stadium and see where our food was going- we got to go in the president’s loge, which was awesome. If I could watch the game from there, I would definitely go. Here’s a picture.
I’m enjoying being back with my roomies very much. It’s great to have them all here. We’re pretty much awesome.
So yeah, that’s life right now! Its pretty good. Hooray.
