Music from the Last Semester

21 05 2010

What I learned:

Ginastera – Prelude No. 12. This was a challenging piece.

Bach – Invention No. 6. A fun piece. I loved the sound.

Mark Hayes – He Is Exalted. A beautiful moving piece.

Chopin – Prelude No. 20. So common but I learned how to be more expressive from this piece.

Haydn – Sonata Hbk. 36 Mvt. 3. I think. This is a fun piece…never really got it done.

Can’t wait to see what I learn next semester.





The Damage

20 01 2010

Well the cellular month is over tomorrow. What’s the damage? 2,500 minutes and 15,000 texts used. Wow. I never thought I’d use that much. Can’t believe it. Well it’s basically back to college now. 😀 A little over one day left.





Going “Home”

19 01 2010

Haha! It’s sad that I consider Florida home. In all reality I do consider it home. I may not have lived there long but in the end over the next four years I’ll be living there more.

I love learning. My piano playing improved SO much. I was amazed that I learned six pieces in one semester. It used to take me about two semesters to learn one piece. I also made it into the college orchestra. I can’t believe it! That for me was miraculous. I think that they let me in out of sympathy but I’ve grown SO much as a violinist. Music I never thought I could play I could. It may not sound amazing but it’s still great! 😀

I love my friends. I can’t believe that I made SO many amazing friends. Not all my friends are amazing but they’re all great! I am just blessed, plainly blessed that God could give me friends like this.

I just can’t wait to get back. I’ll be leaving on the 22nd very early in the morning.





Forgiveness

14 01 2010

Have you ever experienced true forgiveness. I’m not talking about the forgiveness of God but true human forgiveness. I have an amazing best friend. He has shown me true friendship. But not just that, he has shown me true forgiveness. I’m so blessed that God gave me a friend who will forgive me no matter what I say or do. Every time I ask for forgiveness he says, “There’s nothing to forgive.” That always wants  me to cry. I feel terrible because I feel that I’ve done something wrong but he doesn’t think so. I know you’ll never read this John but it’s all true.





Long Break

14 01 2010

Well it’s been a long break. Almost five weeks. It’s been actually about four. I can’t believe how longs it’s been. I miss all my friends from college. I never thought I would miss my friends this much. It hurts just a little. I can’t wait to get back and see them all. I will be enjoying this semester so much more. That’s my goal. Enjoy this semester, hanging out with friends, and relaxing a little more and not being as stressed as I was this last semester. I can’t wait to get back.





The Gift of Music

12 01 2010

God has given me such an amazing gift. He has blessed my friends as well with many musical abilities. He gave my best friend John and creative ability. He came up with the title and wants to work on a piano composition for it. Can’t wait to design the cover. It’s going to be amazing.





Instrument 14!!!!

11 01 2010

It’s mine! A trombone. Well basically mine. It’s rent to own but it’s still mine. 🙂 Can’t wait to start learning it when my best friend John teaches me. 😀
