The sun is shining, the birds are singing, the garden wants me to work in it, there is a room full of projects just waiting for me to come and begin or finish them. These are the things I want to fill my time doing.
Not writing papers. Not reading for school. Not preparing for exit exams.
But this week I will give two presentations, turn in two papers, and take two exit exams.
I should be worried about the general exam, but I don't have time. I will take it and do as well as I do. The music exam is the one I want to ace, which means brushing up on my ear training, among other things.
On top of all of this, I have 5, count them, no, 6 choir rehearsals in the next two weeks, and will attend approx. 7 recitals.
So, you can see why he wanted a calendar.
I expect to hear back from the two remaining schools in the next couple weeks. I received letters from WashU, Virginia, and North Carolina, all along the lines of thank you but we can't accept everyone who applies... I'm not surprised. A little disappointed, but two of those are VERY hard to get into. So, we wait. Limbo is not something I do well, but I have to wonder if anyone does it very well.
That is about all I have right now. It is time to get back to it. I do enjoy what I'm doing. I like the papers I get to write, and I am blessed to have good professors who care about their students. In some ways I will miss being an undergrad, and if we move, I will definitely miss this school.
