In the past almost month that has elapsed since last updating my blog, so much has happened. Namely, I’ve moved and subsequently gotten settled in my new apartment (photos to come soon, I hope) – it’s starting to feel like “home” which is nice. I think I have finally gotten my schedule to the point where I can tolerate it. Last night I was fitfully awake for almost 2 hours as my body ached with fever over all the boxes I’ve lifted over the past few weeks and the 12-15 lb. backpack I’ve had to carry for the past 3 days (more than 10% of my body weight). So to make today better than yesterday I tossed all of my books in my rolling suitcase (much better on the ole’ back), dropped the 5 hour “beginner” French course (undergrad prerequisite that I do not have) that was way beyond my beginner level…especially having to take it at 8:00 in the morning (gag) and added Italian diction instead. Other highlights of my week were getting a parking ticket (double gag), happily starting paperwork to use the MU student plan to buy a new Macbook w/ 30G iPod (should arrive next week), and having my first official voice lesson with my new instructor where we brainstormed ideas for my recital in the spring of 2009 – thinking a recital of all women composers…cool.
Many of you will receive an e-mail including my new contact information. Look for it soon!
