Up and at ‘em.
It’s been crazy since midterm break ended, and I know it’ll just continue to get crazier. December is coming up soon, and that month is always full of concerts and stress and exams and no eating or sleeping. I’m getting tired, but so is everyone else and I guess all we can do is take it day by day. I’m blessed to be able to see my friends, though. I know other people don’t get to do that.
Our tour to Canada was cancelled. On one hand, I’m extremely grateful that I now have all this extra time to get caught up on my homework and to practice, but on the other, I’m kind of disappointed. I’m getting restless again; I want to leave. I want to travel for a while, to meet new people, to be someone else, just for a while. I want to have heavy-lidded conversations with my seatmate on the bus at 4am, I want to experience the rush of setting up an entire orchestra in 10 minutes and pulling off a concert somehow, I want to have that rush of nervousness when I step in line behind someone I don’t know and I want to conquer it this time by striking up a conversation with them. It’s a strange feeling, knowing it’s time to get out of here but not being able to.
