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.
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.
