Woo-hoo! for music!

Today was awesome.... I'm so geared up.

The major stuff is that I tried out for the Applied Music individual lessons this afternoon. My audition went very well(as did everyone's I think), and It was just really cool to get to talk to Grady(guy who's going to teach them) 'cuz he's just so very amazing.... we chatted for a while about my range and how he thinks I'd be more comfortable singing Mezzo.. but he complimented me on my top range! *yea* I've always felt self-conscious about that... he said he really liked my voice(PLEASE be a good sign!!!!!).... anyway...

other awesome music stuff for today: Encore rehearsal! We're really becoming a group! I'm so excited! On Thursday we are going to sing Sweet Dreams(are made of this) for the rest of the Choir.... and we decided that we would add some VP to it... I'm officially a Vocal Percussionist! *woo-hoo* So excited! It's just very cool. I can't tell how it sounds, but the rest of the group seems to like what I'm doing with it.. the true test will be how it goes over during Singers. AHH! SOO Excited! :-D
During rehearsal this evening we also sang California Dreamin' (It's really coming along compared to last year!) and The Rose(Dude! We got it yesterday and we're already kicking butt on it! Woo-hoo!).. and we're looking for an arrangement of the Star Spangled Banner for SSAA that won't be totally out of anyone's range... I'm hoping that works out... it would be really groovy to sing for a Hockey game or a B-Ball game or something... or anything, really. :-) We are also going to learn the Alma Mater and stuff... so exciting... I'm going to burst.

During players, I didn't sign up to be Prop person for the show... I'm going to leave it at if Becky wants me to do it, she'll contact me... but I'm not going to actively bug her anymore. I've got other stuff to deal with now. It's sad that I've got Encore right after Players so I can't go do anything with my Playa's Peeps, but Encore is coming together so nicely! And I'm so happy! What a change from my mood this morning!

Also, my Director class this morning got me a lot more motivated. So, let's hope that holds up. :-D *yea* for 3D stuff and making games and all that coolness. :-) Okay, time to talk to a certain someone... :-D

    *** 26. Eurythmics - Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)

A dream!

I had a dream last night, for the first time, in a long time.

We were at Hershey Park and the 4th Harry Potter movie was out. We were watching it on a very, very, very large screen that was a decent distance away. People were all sitting on bleachers and other people had brought their own chairs. Cindi and Heather brought some folding chairs with them, but I Mike and I didn't have anything... we looked around and found some rocking chairs behind the bleachers, so we sat next to Cindi and Heather. I remember that the movie was awful and it made me want to cry because it was so poorly done. Mike went some where for a while, and I was really worried about what had happened to him, and then he came driving up in a really teeny-tiny car.... that he got in a box of cereal. I couldn't figure out what he had did with Val(His real car), but he said that she was in this little car with him. I couldn't understand that, but I believed him because I trust him.

Then there was this other part where we were IN the movie. It was really freaking 'cuz no one liked Harry and we were like his sidekicks or whatever, but we didn't understand what was going on. They knocked down the wall into Harry's bedroom so that they could expand the kitchen. It didn't make any sense! In the process of knocking down the walls, Harry's wand got broken. But I still had mine. Then some bad guy came to get us, and I was trying to duel him, but I couldn't remember any good spells except for "Flipendo" and "Wingardium Leviosar", neither of which I could use 'cuz I couldn't concentrate hard enough... even when I got a good spell out, he would just get out of the way and cast an even more powerful spell for us to avoid.

We were back at the Park, and Mike had disappeared again. Cindi was upset because he wouldn't hold my hand. Heather was confused because she couldn't hear the movie. I didn't really care about hearing it because it was so awful, I wanted to cry. Mike came back, with something that I never got to see because my alarm went off.

But there's my dream. :-)

    Billy Jonas - Sleeeeeeping


I talked to my astronomy professor for half an hour after class today and he really helped me to understand what's going on... after I got over the whole I-Can't-Do-Math barrier(I took 2*3*1,000 and got 5,000... oops). The concepts are coming back to me, and he helped me draw pictures and such. Okay, time to work on the homework again. :-) I'm supposed to e-mail him if I have any further questions or issues. Prof. Richmond ROCKS! :-D



.... we now return you to your regularly scheduled program. :-)
