Second day of class…

Starting off with a math class that I should have taken by now oops.

Yesterday was pretty good. I was pleasantly surprised by my conducting class, and I think that I was right in picking 16th century counterpoint for theory. I was planning on dropping my humanities film class, but then I went to it and am all conflicted because it was awesome. I’ll see how it compares to the religion class that I’m going to today. 

My audition was meh. I totally fucked up La Mer, but the rest of it was either good or decent so it sort of balanced out? I’ll see how it turns out with ensemble placement. I care, but not to a point where it’s going to be the best or worst thing happening to me. At least I’m able to play now…so there’s that.

Here’s hoping that I don’t die in my math class.

do you solemnly swear to stay in your lane, your whole lane, and nothing but your lane

I keep forgetting that I have ensemble auditions tomorrow…

I guess that’s sort of a good sign because I’m not actively freaking out about them. I know I don’t sound that great, and I can’t do anything to change that before tomorrow…so all I can do is chill. I’ve been working on this new mindset where I don’t worry about anybody but myself, and I think it’s been helping. I’m going to be in an ensemble. I might be in one that is mehh, but this semester is all about my personal improvement going into a jury at the end. What I do in the practice room is going to be the most important factor in my playing. So as long as I work hard, and dedicate myself to bassoon 100%, I know that this is going to be a good semester.
