Mundane update

Things are coming along a little better this week, though midterms are just around the corner, so we'll see for how long this positive energy sticks around. I've been kicking all sorts of arse in my pre-midterm assessment: everything has come back over 90%, though I don't expect that trend to last forever. They say that in the business world, employees rise to the level of their incompetence; by the same token, as a student I tend to continue taking on extra credits and activities until I start seeing Bs on my transcript, so I fully expect my GPA to be a disappointment to my mother to me by this time next year.

Speaking of happy pessimism, I've been assigned "A Cockeyed Optimist" from South Pacific in my Musical Theatre workshop. The song is short and easy, but it's proving a challenge because Nelly is a pathetic and contemptible character that I have no desire to play I think I'm having difficulty with the philosophy behind the song. One of the other students got "As Long As He Needs Me." I'm so jealous.

In a bizarre new twist, thus far this semester, I am scoring slightly higher in physics than I am in music theory, which is supposed to be my major. Keep your eyes peeled for flocks of migrating Canadian bacon this fall.

I have begun taking St. John's Wort in an effort to counteract the inevitable seasonal affective disorder. I can't tell if it's doing anything or not, though I notice that I feel slightly more focused yet also simultaneously a little more anxious.

This blog entry is being cut short because I have to go practice the cello! Yes, I have the will and the time to practice this week! Praise be to Jebus.
