i'm beginning to be excited about fall quarter, now that i know that there WILL be a fall quarter! i get to take a psychology teacher that i know and LOVE (bobula), and i get to take music theory and ear training, which will help SO much when it comes to playing with the fabulous musicians that i do.

i learned a LOT via my Quarter of Quandry (like that? heh?). i learned that i desperately need to take on my education full head-on, no matter how sick i may be. i learned that i'm not infallible. i learned how easy it is to get distracted from the big picture, and how much i desperately need to NOT let that happen. i also learned - thinking i had lost it all - just how much furthering my education means to me.

in responding to a post response by colonelpanic, this is something that i also related (and that spawned this entry):

i've always believed that everything happens for a reason. i think part of the 'reason' behind this:

i couldn't learn a thing from my chem teacher, even when i did show up, and i've always been a fast learner. i just could NOT follow her lectures (and hearing other people talk, i wasn't the only one.) she's
leaving to go back to school after this quarter, so when i retake the class, it'll definitely be under a different instructor, when she had the monopoly on chem 050 until now. i was also scheduled to take schaumberg for chem 111 in the fall, and had to switch that - after talking to a VERY intelligent coworker that i hold in very high regards - schaumberg is even harder to learn from, and taught everyone so many things wrong that the chem teacher he had after that actually took his test to the head of chemistry to turn in the instructor.

so now i've been spared a fate of dealing with teachers that will hinder my future instead of help it along.

school and stuff.
My first degree was an associates in music and english. Had to take 2 semesters of theory and sight singing. EEK

It's sort of like a foreign language. Once you immerse yourself in it, it all comes naturally.

Best of luck!

If your theory class is any sort of good, it will be hard going at first. Some high end colleges make various math majors take music theory as well. It should eventually all pull together though
