I know. I haven’t blogged in two weeks. I’m sorry. I’ve missed you too.
I’ve been trapped in my horribly over-scheduled month of October, also known as Midterm Island. In this month, I’ve already had six exams (about one every four days),
(my professors don’t curve grades) one group project,
, made 300-400 flashcards,
and I was in two concerts within two days of each other and learned that Percy Grainger’s Lincolnshire Posy quite a stressful piece for piccolo players:
In between the two concerts, I went to approximately four masterclasses for the flute studio.
I also wrote four album reviews/articles for work and a lot more choreography for the dance I’m working on. It’s gotten increasingly difficult since people keep quitting.
I have two more concerts this month alone and a test and two papers due tomorrow. My life is now an endless cycle of this:
I guess it’s true what they say of college:
I’ve already given up on sleep(coffee is the answer: https://magslives.wordpress.com/2012/10/04/wisdom-of-winnie-the-pooh/), so to compensate for the social life I try to study with friends.
Clearly not the best plan. Alas, someday I shall escape from midterm island. Come November 13, I will have absolutely no huge events for two and a half weeks. I shall have free time and every day I will do a happy dance.
Until then, though, I’m going to try to keep up with this by establishing a writing challenge tomorrow. Look for it!
