It’s Been So Long

8 01 2011

It has been so long. I’m sure you understand because I’ve been at college. Life has been crazy. I stayed busy taking 18 credits. With all the activities I was involved init totaled to over 30 hours of classes. It was crazy. It was a great experience though. I got to participate in Symphonic Band playing trombone. I had just started playing in January. I’m so thankful for my teachers because they’ve taught be so much. I didn’t get the grades I wanted. I’m not going to complain to much. I did get a 3.33. I missed 9 credits because they were B+s instead of A-s like they should have been. I was so close to making amazing grades but oh well. I still have 5 more semesters to do this. Anyways I’m out for now.

 

Here’s a video that I got to shoot at the Christmas lights concert.





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.





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.





Missing Friends

10 01 2010

I’ve been missing my college friends for the last 3 weeks. I’ll say it here a 5 week break is WAY to long. I can’t wait to go back. I met so many amazing, diverse people. I miss them all so badly. There is proof. I’m on my family’s cellphone plan. The billing cycle started December 22nd. Today is January 10th. Between those two dates, I have used 10,000+ texts and 1,600+ minutes. I can’t believe how much I miss them. I didn’t think that it would be this hard.





First Semester of Grades

4 01 2010

Well I got my grades. I’ve decided to publish them here to my blog. How daring.

New Testament Survey     A-

English                           B

Basic Math (Don’t judge)  A

Music Theory                  A

Private Piano                   B-

Speech                          B

Orchestra                       A-

I made the Dean’s List, which is only a B average or higher. At midterms they posted the Dean’s List and there was less than one thousand names on the list. Not sure on the exact number but still when a college has 4,o00 students more should be getting grades that are at least a B average….well that’s all for now.





College Life

23 12 2009

College was an amazing experience. I can’t believe how much I learned. It was a great experience. I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

I had three roommates. I was only supposed to have two but the residence manager asked one to move to a different room to become a prayer leader. We quickly got a new roommate.

The music program was intense! Of course I had never been in a college music program but it was a great experience. I also ended up changing my major from Church Music Performance to Music Education. A big change but one that I figured would happen. I could handle the performance major if I really wanted to but I’ve seen how intense it is. It’s not that’s that much harder than the education major it’s the whole idea of being able to perform. I’m just not one to be on stage all the time like that. Also education is a more practical major.

The food was ok. At first it was bad but you just have to get used to it first. 🙂 It also got better as the semester went on. This just wasn’t my perception wasn’t just mine it was everyone’s even my junior roommate’s.

I made so many great friends there. I can’t believe it. Met people from all over the place, with all kinds of personalities, and from all walks of life. It was great. I can’t believe how much I miss them all and can’t wait to see them again. I think next semester will be even better than this last semester. 🙂
