NaNoWriMo.....let's just not talk about it. I've learned over the past few years that my life is just too busy to write a novel in a month. So let's not talk about it. Thank you.
But this means I'm back blogging I guess. It's been a busy month.....
First quarter of school ended at the beginning of the month and I finished with great grades, as always. We actually got a first look at our transcripts too, and I was very happy to see my 4.0 GPA.
I've been quite busy with music too. Marching band is officially over; we played the Veteran's Day parade, and had our final banquet. For the banquet, all off the seniors made the underclassmen special 'paper plate awards' and I got 'Most dedicated'. That's pretty cool. I also got this sweet trophy for being recognized as one of three of the best musicians in our band of over eighty people. I was extremely excited about that one. Jazz season has started and I'm playing trumpet in our top band and trombone in our second band. Fiddler pit band rehearsals will also be starting after vacation which will be quite awesome.
I've had some gigs to play for too. I accompanied a jazz piece at a piano recital, and got to play trumpet and flugelhorn at my church fair last Saturday. I'm working on a piece for an advent vespers service as well. I'm also directing my church's Christmas pageant which has made me EXTREMELY busy.
Anyway...that's what I've been up to. The short version anyway. So with all of that, it's been nice to get away and spend this week relaxing in Vermont. It's very snowy here, and cold, and very very quiet and chill. Excellent.
Oh and do me a favor will you? Go over to Horsefeathers and drop Olivia a sweet comment. She needs it. :)
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYBODY!!!!
