For the first time ever, I have a clear ambition for my music career.
It's exhilarating. But honestly? It also scares the absolute crap out of me.


It's not a new career idea, really, it's one I've had for a while. It's just always been in a half-hearted 'oh I could do that as well' kind of way. I want to pursue musical theatre pit orchestras. Not just amateur theatre, but professional orchestras.
The light-bulb moment I had in my car this morning (it literally hit me at once, I was stunned actually) was while listening to the Original London Cast recording of The Lion King. I realised that I would be prepared to move indefinitely to London to pursue West End, or to New York for Broadway. For anyone who's heard me talk about living overseas, this is a big deal. A really big deal. I've never actively been able to picture myself moving anywhere indefinitely, and I do think that Melbourne will always be home, but I can see myself doing it. And that's scary.
I have a defined goal. This is kind of a foreign concept to me.

Indo was fine, I got my draft of my assignment back and it was fine! I just have to add a different section, but my language was good, and the topic was sound and so I am so happy. I have all of tomorrow to finish it, and I have most of an English draft now so I am not stressed about it at all.

Then it was home, where sine_animo came over to watch Glee. What can I say? The episode was amazing. Amazing. I want to rewatch it so much right now, but I'm not letting myself. I might do a massive picspam post tomorrow night - but for now suffice to say my afternoon was filled with squeeing and other such incoherent noises. Also, Friday could have been a disaster - I was in utter hysterics. It was probably the funniest number on the show to date. Glee, when you get it right you get it so. damn. right.

Today was the best day I've had in a good while.
