The Department of Homeland Security reads my blog!
Well, not really, but it is funny that I mentioned they hadn't cashed my citizenship check, and it's cashed the very next day. Not that this means I'll be able to vote next year -- there's still circa eighteen months of "processing time" to come.
I am recovering from pulling an all-nighter from Monday to Tuesday. Aside from a twenty-minute nap between classes yesterday, I was awake for over 40 hours. I didn't leave the music building for 25 hours during that time. But my major orchestration project is done, and I made the deadline, huzzah. However, I did totally screw up a concert last night by failing to turn a page in time for a giant cello solo in the Tchaikovsky Serenade for Strings. Oops. My toes are still in curl.
