Wow, sorry about going so long without posting, guys. I've just sort of been having "one of those days" all week, plus I was feeling really really icky and blah blah blah... I can give a dozen excuses and no reasons, so, I'm sorry. So... where to begin?
I haven't really been doing much lately. Yesterday my family and I went to King's Dominion
, which is an amusement park in lovely Virginia. Of course, it rained while we were there, but a little rain never dampens the spirits of a German, oooh no! We stuck it out until they closed due to lightning. Hightlight: rain = no lines. Oh, and I think I bruised a rib on one of the rides. The swelling is down now, but I'm hoping it'll end up being something serious later on so I can sue the park. Goodbye, college loans!
Speaking of college (ah, my favorite
topic *sarcasm*), I've talked it over with Sara, Sara's mom (though when I say "talked it over with Sara's mom" I mean "was talked at by her"), my own parents, my Penguin, my Jew, my ex, my cousin, just about everyone who has an opinion about it... and I've decided that the only opinion that matters is my own and since I don't know what I want yet, I'll just go at my own pace. I have a good idea of what I want and I don't know if college is it. I'd most love to just go to college for gen eds, maybe major in something I'm interested in but don't want to make a living out of, like culinary arts, and study music independantly. It's just not something I feel I want to learn in a school setting. But then I may change my mind. I'm such a woman that way. I just don't think music should be confined to theory and numbers. Although it is an art of math, when it's put that way I lose my passion. Someone said, "Technique is what you fall back on when you lose your passion", and maybe that's true. But as far back as I can remember music has been my passion because it's something you don't have to know everything about to be good at it. You can either do it halfway or all the way and still live it. You don't need to know everything about music theory to know how to sing a song, and you don't need to be a musician to understand music theory. It's so bilingual that way. But anyway, my point is, my future is mine and no matter how much "free" advice people give me, everything is my choice and I like it that way. After all... if I'm an adult now, then treat me like it.
Anyway, that's all I've got for the time being... I promise
I will be better with updating.
