it will be kind of a pain in the arse to remember what days i need to be where at first, but hey, i'm excited that i got the music classes i desperately wanted. i didn't think that i would at first, due to all the wonky days with the chem class, and i didn't dare skip the chemistry, as it's the final 'mathy' prereq before i have to take a gazillion and one anatomy and physiology classes.

aaaaah, so i'm happy that summer classes (a fifteen week math course in eight weeks, i'm INSANE!) and fall classes are alllll planned out, and i can just kick back from here.

but fuck, am i tired. but only a week and a half left until this quarter is over. i have a 5 page life application essay to write for psych 101 by next thursday as well as a major test on tuesday, eight or more 'chapters' of math homework due some time next week as well as a major text, and then both of my finals one week from monday.

not to mention my very first rawk show for 800ish beaverton highschoolers one week from saturday, with lots of practice to do in the meantime.

ooh, and have i mentioned that i seem to suddenly be having SEVERE blood sugar problems again? i ate a potato tonight and almost threw up. double rawk. i don't have time to go see anyone about it until after the 12th, though, so i'm just going to watch my sugar and carbs until then.

and to display my pretend super powers to you? i give you... ACNE BLAST MAN.

i so need a zim-athon.

There's something super weird going on with my complexion, too, it's EXTREMELY blotchy and sort of acne'd, but ... not really. Could it be rosacea? Gaw, I hope not. But it seems like the older I get, the redder my cheeks become. ugh. And I hate wearing foundation.

It might just be you reacting to the weather, sometimes allergies can make skin blotchy. Mine has been fidgety lately but I know it's stress, and hormones.

Red cheeks rock though, some mornings I look so pale.

Oh, Aubrey. I have suck memories of theory and sightinging/eartraining. I hope you enjoy those classes. I never say, but I always dig what your band is doing. :) Hope you get some rest and injoy your invader Zim.

I enjoyed them soooo very much at the beginning, but a large part of me wishes I would have gone back to my nursing classes after that quarter, instead of changing my major to music. Although, I wouldn't have been introduced to a lot of the stuff I LOVE now (like classical), and.. well, I wouldn't have gotten the promotion at work, because I wouldn't have the availability, because I would still be in school.

Everything happens for a reason, I guess.

Ear training? What - you're going to teach them how to wiggle or something?

Hee hee, I got this response a LOT from people. It's basically a class to train your ear to hear different intervals in music, to be able to hear any piece of music and instantly write it into notes, or to see any music on paper for the first time and be able to sing it properly without ever hearing it.

I learned a lot from it, I did, but it ended up being SO painful to endure by the time I dropped out.

DAMN WOMAN! In this one case Im glad Im not you... Dont think I could handle that full of a schedule! But hell good luck with it! And where the hell are you on EQ and where the heck is the time FOR EQ LOL

Hope you are well :)

I ended up taking a more condensed schedule of psych 101 instead of chem (as i didn't pass my chem class that was before that one that I took over the summer.)

I do miss EQ. I've been playing WoW, but as it's a dumbed down version of EQ, it gets old kind of quickly. That's probably a good thing, I suppose, as I tend to take on too much of it at once and neglect other things.

Hee hee. It always gives me the willies when I'm watching some dr. show on tv and they pull something LIVING out of the ear.

I'm always terrified of that happening with me. My aunt Roberta had it happen to her: gnats layed EGGS in her ear, and the feeling of them crawling around after birth almost drove her insane. This was back in the 1940's so you can imagine...

Good luck with the classes. Music Theory kicked my buttocks.

Thanks for the text messages! :)

Trousdale is like a real professor. He reminds me of someone who should be at a big university instead of Clark.
He's nice enough though, as long as you're interested in what he's teaching you should have no problem with him.

He also looks like he should be British. I will forever love his three piece tweed outfits, complete with a Wile E. Coyote tie.

I never got to 2nd year music, where I hear he is BEYOND brutal, but am glad I got to experience him. I loved/hated how he was able to almost sniff out someone that wasn't prepared, which meant I was chosen A LOT to do things in front of all the other students (like sight sing. Ugh.), but do agree he can be a really great professor.

So are you doing the music minor after all?
Jun. 7th, 2007 11:40 pm (UTC)
I guess now that it's been a year, you have seen how this progressed:

- changed major to music
- endured another quarter and a half of music classes
- began to hate the classes more than life itself
- changed major back to nursing
- realized I cannot possibly survive another month and a half of music classes and dropped out.

Part of me wishes I would have just left it at the one quarter of classes, but I would never have obtained the love of classical music that I have now, plus the knowledge that I pursued my dream (as a teen, I always swore I would major in music.) and realized that it's not for me.

But I went there.

Hey, it's all good. (And now you can refer to yourself as a "classically trained" singer! ;) )
