Fall Break

Salvete Amici,

Today is the last day of fall break for me.  I’ll only have one class tomorrow, though, so it’ll be a nice way of easing back into school.

Many things have happened, but I don’t want to be too long-winded (since I’m trying to catch up on a bit of reading for tomorrow) so here’s a list:

1.  I’m a clubhead!  My group is called Sacred Harp*, and it’s a type of old American a capella singing with roots in the Primitive Baptist tradition.

2.  I changed my major.  At first I thought I was going to be Bio, now I’m leaning more towards Math.

3.  I’ve started taking driving lessons, and I’m practicing every day!

4.  I popped a tire during my practice yesterday, and I felt so bad 😀  But it was really fun replacing it with my dad.

5.  I met some smart, interesting, awesome friends at college.

6.  Mr. Buddy pooped on my sister’s bed.

That’s all for now,

Happy Fall!

Blessing in Disguise

Salvete Amici,

So today I got an email that began “We regret to inform you…”

And it turned out that I didn’t get into the summer vocal arts program I was hoping to. But you know what? I was kind of hoping that would happen.

Yeah, it was sad for a while, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized, that this was a good turn of events.

That program is seven weeks long, and now I’ll have more of the summer to chill, swim, and learn to drive.  I’ll also get to apply for a camp counselor job at amath camp which was at the same time.

Yays!  Not only that, but getting rejected from this camp (which was a super competitive camp anyway) will prepare me for colleges that reject me in the very near future.


Anyway.  Time to get back to studying :p
