Like a Puzzle

Here is an update on happenings so far...
*Dr. A seemed pleased with my jury, and Sorenson put into words what I have been feeling this whole time I have played trombone.
*Finishing my abstract for Dr. we speak!
*Trumpet test tomorrow!
*Getting a "B" in clarinet lessons, but I learned so much!
*PSYC 308 test not as bad as I thought, which means I probably failed. :)
*My PSYC final..... tomorrow
*Finished registering!!!!
*Microteaching went awesome!
*And practice, practice, practice....over the break break break!
I'm "hopped" up on Vault right now, but I think it's 50% mental and 50% the nap I took earlier that is keeping me "alert."
Hoop Troop (growing a pair) tomorrow to show Reneau how pathetic looking and sounding sixteen people in Reno will be without the woodies.
I think I am officially burned out on Old Mexico, and officially procrastinating!

A Time For Stress

So here I am . Wasting my precious time on this blog. I know I should be doing other things, but I have no clue even where to start!

*I have to somehow aquire a flute/saxophone and be "proficient" in it by the end of the week.

*I have to prove myself to Dr. A so I don't get a bad grade in my lessons. All we have done this quarter is sight-read in my lesson. I suck at sight-reading, so all of my lessons have sucked. Not to mention that whenever I have an actual lesson that isn't 100% sight-reading, it's cut short or scheduled at another time that he goes M.I.A. for.

*Finish my abstract for Dr. Westbrook

*Refresh my memory on trumpet

*Practice for my last clarinet lesson (in which I was shown the chromatic scale and have to do it perfectly on Tuesday)

*Kick glutes on my jury

*Study for my PSYC 308 test on Tuesday, which is not as important as...

*My PSYC 308 cumulative FINAL on Thursday (worth 50% of my final grade)

*Get sleep and food so I can at least function like a human being

*Finish registering which can't happen unless I get an....

*Open seat in a classes that are already full

*Score study


*And practice, practice, practice....

This list was more for me than for anything else. I am worn down to the nubs, missed a "great" party, missed the opportunity to kill someone who could've possibly hurt a friend of mine at the "great" party, and I need a good night's sleep.

I will pull through this.... I just wonder how....

Hell Weekend=Over

Ark-La-Tex is over. I finally have caught up on sleep as of 4:30 this afternoon.

Dr. A is in Costa Rica (?) so I will not have lessons or low brass this week. Finally! A while to let my lips rest is finally here!

SAI meeting tonight, and I almost forgot about it. Sometimes I feel like a silly president.
My computere is wigging out right now, so I will have to cut this short. Laer!

Wrong Again!

I wasn't nocturnal last night. I passed out around ten and slept until 7. Dr. Barker cancelled class until 2/15 so no more 8am's anymore. Well, till then, at least.

Lesson didn't go so well today, but when does it ever? I also practiced clarinet for half an hour and I have come to realize that I stink at it.

Later tonight will be the MIT meeting and then a formal SAI meeting.

I am learning so much and also learning that I need to learn so much more in my MUPD 466 class.

Until next time!
