I dunno why I’m posting here, it’s kind of a dead page 🤷🏼‍♀️ Oh well

It’s Stress Week! Also known as the week before finals - everyone is studying, prepping for juries, practicing for final concerts, rushing to finish papers and praying that they don’t fall behind.

There is so much to do, and so little time. But I’m so glad for everything to finally be over. All semester feels like a constant uphill battle. And finally, all the papers and assignments and tests and compositions will be behind us, and we can take a real break.

PFF

Composers don’t take breaks! As soon as the semester finishes, I’m going to immediately begin a piece that an ensemble is expecting to begin practicing in January.

Yes, my life is crazy. Yes, composing’s hard.

I love it.

This first semester... oof, I’ve made so many mistakes and blunders, has a lot of embarrassing moments and am now just trying to keep my cool and stifle drama. I’m here for education. And it’s wonderful to learn.

I’ve doodled here and there. But I’m still not completely sure how to draw the lower half of the body, and don’t even ask me how to draw a male torso. I’m still such an inexperienced artist.

But I’ve continued to fall in love with music, and learn to write it well. That’s all that matters while I’m here.

See ya!
Lily

Favorite Bible Verse:
I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
John 15:5



Since I'm no good with introductions, I'll just lay out the basics. But if you really want to find out more about me, leave comments on my art or journals!

I'm an aspiring composer, writer, and artist. I play percussion in a concert band (four-mallet marimba on my own!) and sing in my church's worship band. I've also taught myself some guitar and piano.

Music is my passion, but I also love to work on my novel ideas and draw my characters! Find out more in my gallery!

Well, it’s been forever since I’ve written a journal. Or submitted any kind of art.

That’s because college is SUPER busy, and any sketches I do are very rough and in the margins of my notebook. I realize I’ve only ever doodled in one class because I only have one really boring class!! All my others require my full attention, and I’m learning so much.

This is just a tiny update to say that I’m still alive. But for the most part, this account will be dead. Living in the real world is great, though.

Hey, guess what!

I’m in college!!

Currently I’m sitting in the lobby of my dorm, trying to do homework at 6:15 in the morning like the weirdo I am. But I got stuck on trying to reharmonize this Bach Chorale, so now I’m just writing a journal.

Yesterday was my first day of classes. Wednesdays have the lightest schedule for me, but I still worked for about five hours on homework my comp professor had assigned before classes officially started. I figured out how to hide in the practice rooms and be productive with my free time all day.

So far, the professors have been just wonderful. I still need to buy a few books for my classes. I’m not sure how I’ll fit in a social life with all this homework. I’m not even sure if I’ll get the books in time to finish my homework!

So my first few days have been me scrambling to make sure I don’t fall behind in the first week. The music theory and composition will be intense. But for now, I’m still trying to get myself organized!

Don’t expect any art. I didn’t bring my drawing tablet with me, and I doubt I’ll have enough free time to actually sketch. We’ll see.

Lily
Happy Independence Day!! Apparently I joined DA five years ago today... must have been bored at the fireworks show...

Anyway, I may be declaring my independence from social media this week. See you all later, potaters!

    The fan shudders to my left, emanating a noise like static in the room. But though my sister finds the din awful, it’s white noise to me. Almost relaxing. Though I can see why it might irritate someone. The old, metal cage rattles inconsistently, its rhythm changing so curiously, you wonder if it’s just your brain teasing you with the patterns it longs to hear.

    It stands on the snare drum that I never use anymore, tucked behind my bed in a place impossible for it to be played. No one ever sees its rough, milky white head, its shiny aluminum snares, coiled underneath. No one ever hears its loud, proclaiming rhythms, its subtle tones when its snares are held away from the bottom, and the white head is tapped gently.

    Instead, all I hear now is the noisy metal fan, droning over its silence.
