Today is the Day!!

Today is the day of my Senior Recital. I have skipped my first two classes and I love the power. I have mentally practiced once and will probably do it a couple more times today. The only class I'm going to today is my voice lesson, so my voice teacher can warm me up and see how my voice is. Today I've been quite congested and I am trying at all costs not to talk. I already prayed once today and once last night for it not to rain tonight.
"Dear God,
I pray that today will go smoothly. Help me in everything I need to do.
I pray that my family will have peace today.
I pray for my voice to be full.
I pray that I am doing this with a grateful heart.
I love You and thank You for everything You have already done.
Ok, now three times.
This "Grumpy Toast" is out.

That's Not My Name

The title of my blog tonight, is the title of the new catchy song in my head. I can't believe my recital is tomorrow. This blog will be brief because of that. I'm not going to my first two classes tomorrow. I'm rather excited for not having to go. More tomorrow and pre-concert jitters.

BTW: My voice is almost back!!

While sitting on the couch eating a bowl of cereal, I've been contemplating a lot of things. Like how wrapped up I get in Facebook and Twitter. How I feel guilty for not writing in my blog to document everything that happens to me. I can't believe I've let the internet run my life. Life isn't life until I've updated my status on Facebook, read my emails at gmail, told everyone where I would be on Twitter, and check to see if I can wear short sleeves today at weather.com. Life wasn't always this complicated. You got up, you got ready, you did what you needed to do. There was no internet to distract you.

In just 3 1/2 short weeks. I will be done with undergrad school forever. I can't believe that this chapter in my life will soon be over. But I know God has great things in store for me!

Tuesday, April 7, 2009

Today has been a pretty good day. Since I have one reader on this blog, I don't really update it. But if I keep writing and letting people know about it, I could possibly get a stronger readership. My life has been busy, but one by one things are drifting off. Opera is now done. Now I have more times for my 10 classes, actually now 9 classes. I can't believe I only have 5 weeks until graduation. I need to find a job and finish applying to grad schools. I also need to study for the GRE. On Friday, we're suppose to bring in a humorous story. I've got nothing. Oh well. Hopefully something will come to me.
In a couple of minutes I go audition for some opportunities to sing at the end of the semester. Wish me luck! More info later!

Later on...
I had a pretty good day. It's 9:05 pm and I'm done with the majority of my homework. The audition went very well, hopefully tomorrow I find out who got the spots. There were 4 auditionors and 3 spots. The one act rehearsal went really well. I also made up with a friend, so all in all, it was a long but very productive day. I have so much to do that has nothing to do with homework.
  1. Email Matt Kadavy
  2. Start Studying for the GRE
  3. Keep working on Grad Apps
  4. Go over voice songs
