Eyedrops

I'm just getting over being really sick. Deathly ill without the death part. It must have been the worst cold I've ever had in my LIFE. I couldn't sleep at night and kept waking up confused and mentally uncomfortable due to some unsettling dreams. I'm not even sure what they were about other than memorization that I couldn't do for the life of me.

Other issues as well, of the familial kind. They want me to stop being a vegetarian and check up on me behind my back to my mom. Is she eating? Then my mom called my voicemail and I couldn't stop thinking about whether or not they would stop paying my tuition if I refused to eat meat. It's irrational, but that's my obsessive-compulsive self. I can't help it and I'm not sure I want to.

Must finish in two years. The other thing is that I want to study elsewhere, that is, in another country but with this school. They have so many opportunities, but he's so unwilling to pay for it that it's ridiculous. I NEVER asked him to pay for anything of mine while growing up--nothing other than food and clothes I mean. And even so, I didn't get much there anyway. I wish I could get a job and be outgoing and all that stuff, but it just isn't the way I am.

Now I'm sitting here trying to get rid of the redness in my eyes that's become more and more familiar now that I've moved. From crying, stress, lack of sleep. [But I really am happier here. I cannot stress it enough.] All I know is they mask the problem, wash away the tears and strain. They make the red go away.

I'm here

I'm here, I'm happy, and I'm typing on a laptop. My laptop.

Interpretive running ain't for everyone.

Updates Schmupdates

I've been selling my poor ol' textbooks online at Amazon.com and have been making a FORTUNE. Okay, maybe not a capitalized fortune, but a lot more than I would've made had I sold them back to the cheap JC bookstore. AHF's daughter told her she sold hers there for $2! I couldn't believe that. A buncha craziness is what it is, paying $50+ for a single book and selling it for less than 10% of what you paid for it! Thank God for Amazon.com and the Internet.

While I'm praising God for the Internet, I may as well mention that I made reservations (online) at the place Mom and I are staying when we go to school for orientation. I don't yet know what she'll be doing when I'm at orientation, but I'll figure someway to smuggle her in.

In conclusion, bye.

Oh my gosh

I got the "Menuet" to 163 on the metronome with barely any mistakes! That's just so cool I couldn't not post it. Still haven't played the accompanying "Trio" on the m-nome, but Ms. Piano Teacher says I keep time well on it, better than the Stozel "Menuet." Oh boy!

Music, Music, Music!

Things to do before orientation in July: PRACTICE the piano audition piece!, pick a song to audtion for the vocal program, study for that durned theory placement exam. The list'll be added to once I think of more to add. AHHHH! I'm leaving in two months!!!
