Singing of Memories

Thanks to those of you who voted on my poll. I appreciate the help.

Yesterday was rather interesting. I decided to pay a visit to my high school and listen to the choir (at the suggestion of a current student there). I must say that I had forgotten how spacious the halls were. I walked in an instantly felt smaller. I guess I was so used to them when I went there that I didn't notice, but going back I was amazed. Anyway, that was a tangent.

So, I listened to the choir. I have to give a lot of credit to Molly Shultz for taking on the task of rebuilding the choir after Becky had to leave. I think she's doing a wonderful job and think that she deserves whatever support she can get.

The choir itself is doing well. There's plenty of areas that will need some work, but that's true of any choir (even professional ones). However, the spirit and enthusiasm of the students will carry them far if they choose to harness it. Beyond that, the experience of it all will refine their skills as they go along. I'm curious to see how it progresses in the coming years.

While I was there, I ran into Katrina (the drama teacher), who was kind enough to give me comp tickets to their next performance. So, I'm going to see who would want to go and pick one of the nights in which to go.

After coming back home, I worked on some music and prepared to go listen to Troy play at Capitol. It's definitely been a while since I've been there. It's certainly become far more posh since last I saw. Regardless, Troy and the band did incredibly. He's changed up some of the music since last (I've been saying that a lot) I sang with him. It was nice. Kinda made it new for me, which is a good thing.

Today, I hung out with mom and did a little shopping for Troy's birthday. Without realizing it, though, I managed to miss my first summer class. Technically, it was my second, because I also, unwittingly, missed my first class yesterday. It usually helps if you look at your schedule before you plan on doing things. Oh, well. I'm going to be spending most of the midnight breakfast thing groveling before Dawson in hopes that he will forgive me for missing two out of three of his classes for the summer.

This evening, was Natalie's recital. She's always been a fantastic singer and tonight only helped solidify it. She sang very well and presented herself wonderfully. It'll be sad to not have her in choir next year, but I'm pretty sure she's happy to graduate. Best wishes to her.

And last, but probably least, I decided to tack on this little quiz thing that I borrowed from hutchypie, which I will promptly put under a cut:

Your Birthdate: January 28

Your birth on the 28th day of the month (1 energy) adds a tone of independence and extra energy to your Life Path.

The number 1 energy suggest more executive ability and leadership qualities than you path may have indicated.

A birthday on the 28th of any month gives greater will power and self-confidence, and very often a rather original approach.

Unlike much of the other 1 energy, this birthday is one that endow with the ability to start a job and continue on until it is finished.

You may prefer to use the broad brush, but you can handle details as well.

You are sensitive, but your feeling stay somewhat repressed.

You have a compelling manner that can be dominating in many situations.
