Another year older, deeper in debt, and a bit closer to getting the hell out of Dodge. This semester of strife has finally ended, and on FAR better terms than I ever thought possible, up until about halfway through April. I got my grades tonight, all As and Bs (thankfully, pulled off a B in that damned Chemistry class, and I'm THROUGH WITH PIANO FOREVER!!!!!!!), bringing my GPA to a nice 3.24. It's nice to have enough classes that you can say you got 3 Bs and 5 As. I'm happy with life, in general. Starting to fight with a bit of weight gain through the year, which I'm attributing to eating too effing much. I'll fix that. Also starting to fend off the impending and inevitable Vicodin addiction, which I'm attributing to the fact that i've already devoted too much willpower to too many other things, at the moment, and I just don't really have any left. I'll fix that, eventually. Found love, in the most unexpected places. Found life, in even more unexpected places--namely, myself. I've found housing (again, like last year, not in the area or manner I had originally planned for, but it all worked out in the end) for the next 3 semesters while I finish up my Bachelor's degree. I'm narrowing down the prospectives for grad school (look out, Union states, I'm coming for you!), and figuring out what I want to do for both my Master's and DM. I'm going home for three days this coming week (to see my parents and renew my car inspection), then heading off to New Mexico for another three, with a few people in the horn studio, then back to work, 33+ hours a week. I worked 12 hours yesterday, I'm finishing up hour 14 for today. It's all good, here. I can't stress it enough, how...well, how amazing the turns my life has made are starting to turn out. I'm happy. I'm in love. I'm doing well in school. I'm getting some real respect out of my colleagues, not only here at work, but in music. Almost makes me feel like I might be able to make a pretty good living for myself doing this stuff, after all! I still should marry a lawyer or a doctor or something, just in case, ;)

Anyway, I suppose that's all there is to cover, right now. Verdi Requiem concert went off without a hitch, by the way.
I love you all, even if you suck. Extra love for those of you who don't!

'He who knows others is learned. He who knows himself is wise.'
'Tomorrow will take us away,
Far from home--
No one will ever know our names,
But the bards' songs will remain.
Tomorrow, all will be known,
And You're not alone,
So don't be afraid
In the dark and cold
'Cause the bards' songs will remain.
They all will remain
In my thoughts and in my dreams
They're always in my mind....
Come close Your eyes;
You can see them, too.'
