This is kind of wonderful. I've fallen in love with their voices, and those three songs mixed together is gorgeous. <3

Here, have another one:

I was totally dancing in my seat. I'm so cool. I don't even like the song *that* much XD
Finds like this are why I love tumblr. Yep. Well, one of the reasons.

What have I been up to recently? Oh, I went to that Disney party - it was fun getting dressed up, and good to see the birthday girl but I didn't know many people so didn't stay terribly long. Now, let me see if I can upload that photo I promised...



Work was work, I was meant to go out with snuggle_monster but we were both too wrecked to even think about moving, Sunday I did absolutely nothing and it was amazing, and today I worked again. Tomorrow will be an epic marathon baking session, as well as buying party decorations and (finally) going to the doctor's to see what the hell is happening with my ear.

I also got home tonight and had snuggle_monster spoil her own surprise to check something about my birthday present: I literally sat at my screen like this for ages.
Photobucket

That's all I feel like talking about tonight, so goodbye for now!

 Guys guys guys, my technical exam is DONE!! It went so much better than expected, so I can relax a bit now. I have one more exam on Friday and then a month of delicious freedom.

I've gotten fairly slack with lj-posting, I will probably remedy that once I'm properly on break.
Since my last freak-out post over violin I:
- finally got off my arse and did some serious practice
- skyped [livejournal.com profile] pebblegosling  multiple times
- decided that I am taking the year off practical violin next year, and I won't go back on that now. I need a break from the stress it causes, and need time to settle into a proper routine
- put together my Esmeralda costume for the Disney-themed party I'm going to on Friday (I'll post a pic if I remember!)
- have bought myself clothes for the first time in ages
- finally paid off all those insurance claims
- spent a lot of time on tumblr and reading fanfic (including RPS for a movie I haven't seen - sign of good writing, right there)
- had a couple of good shifts at my teaching job
- taken my violin in to get a couple of niggling things fixed, of course, as soon as I physically *can't* play it, I wanted to

Last night was so much fun. I went to see Bell Shakespeare's production of 'Much Ado About Nothing' with [livejournal.com profile] snuggle_monster  and [livejournal.com profile] thalia03  and it was ridiculously funny. I honestly haven't laughed that hard in a long long time. My stomach hurt for ages afterwards. Beatrice was so good, so acerbic but still came across as not entirely bitter, Benedick was freaking hilarious because instead of putting on the overly formal accent a lot of actors do in Shakespeare he still had this almost-Bogan Aussie accent... took me a little while to warm up to it but once I did it was hilarious. The use of music was great, random assortments of instruments and awesome vocal harmonies - so good. So much of what made me laugh was physical humour, so it's not all stuff I can remember or describe now. Although one thing that cracked us up so much was the way Don John and his cronies were characterised - as mafia-type guys. The way the guy who played Don John was SO much like Rowan Atkinson's way of playing Mr Bean, we were in hysterics at points because of that.

I'd forgotten how much I love some of the more sappy dialogue in this play. 'I love you with so much of my heart that none is left to protest' <3

The ending was the single most appropriate way I could ever have thought of to finish that play. Basically, everyone is coupled off, embracing, and it's a really sappy affectionate moment. Cute. Lights dim except for on Beatrice and Benedick, as he reaches down and grabs her arse. Audience as a collective group: awwww.... HAHAHA XD

Today, thalia03 and I started studying for our English exam on Friday, watching Endgame and writing notes on poetry, interspersed with parts of movies and watching bits of Spring Awakening on youtube. The cast list for our uni's production went up the other day, and we were highly amused/surprised that the guy I kind of sort of have a mini crush on in English is in it. How do I spot the musos/musical theatre people in a LIT class?! Even for my instincts that's ridiculous.
We now have a plan to talk about Spring Awakening obnoxiously before the exam and try to draw him into conversation. Comfort zone, I am leaving you. Yep.

I think that's enough now!

 I just got home from work, and for a shift I very reluctantly took it was actually almost enjoyable. The five hours went quickly, and I earned $140 at any rate =D

Whoa, so I haven't posted properly in over a week. I'll spare you all the boring details, here are some of the highlights (I'm in an optimistic mood!)

I had my Indonesian oral exam on Monday, and it was so much fun. I love that I can say that about an exam. I hung out with Ame for a while beforehand, we were supposed to cram but not much got done really. Then we went in, and the analysis of Gerr (the play) was relatively easy, and we both followed each others' arguments really well. We got told at the end that we had probably the best understanding of the play in the whole class. We then spent the rest of the time talking about Glee in relation to role models in the media. Not only did Bu Y let us use that as our topic, she joined in - and made a comparison using Sue Sylvester and a character from the play. It was so funny. She also told us we got in the 80s!! So exciting.
My Indo written exam was on Friday, and I think I did alright - I finished it, anyway. The most stressful part was getting there and finding a park. I hate morning exams because the traffic is terrible, I left an hour and 45 minutes to get there and I was still cutting it really close - without traffic that journey takes 40 minutes.

I got paid a substantial amount more than I expected this week, and so am able to pay of the other insurance claim and still have money to actually spend this month. So I bought Christina Perri's cd and I have to say I love it. <3

My parents have been away since Friday afternoon, and I love having the house just to myself and my brother. It's things like this that show me that yep, I could live out of home. Which is still a vague plan for next year - provided a few things go my way.

I spent the majority of last week procrastinating, some practice, and those exams. Now that I only have my recital and English left, I've been using my time to practice and go through this list of things to organise - mainly on my computer. It's good to be able to just chill.

It was so good to see wolfielove yesterday, random movie afternoons ftw! We should do that more often *nods*

I saw harpisan last Tuesday too - we went to see Rio and had a fair bit of fun. So good to see her again, it's been too long. Even though even short amounts of time away from her seem far too long. <3

On a similar note, I finally got to talk to pebblegosling on Saturday and last night - after not having a proper conversation for ages. It's been a good week for communication, obviously.

My playing is getting better, although I got knocked down a little after my lesson on Thursday as nothing was up to scratch and my teacher pointed out that I'd regressed with my technique. I've calmed down now, but I was a little upset.

Also, last night this moved me so much that I teared up - if anyone needed any more proof that this woman is beautiful, inside and out, this is it. I also know that I follow the right people when my entire dash was just reblogs of this for about half an hour.

I'll stop rambling now, but have a video of NPH being his usual epically awesome self at the Tony awards.

 This song. Her voice. I'm incoherent, I don't care.
*flails*

I'm really emotional listening to this, I just, it's overwhelming.

This week has been pretty up and down as well, I will recount it properly this weekend, but for now just have the music that is quite literally playing into my heart.

Also this. I never knew Sara Ramirez had such a stunning voice. My goodness.

I both love and hate that music gets to me so much. It's why I do what I do, but it hurts so damn much sometimes.

rdm_ation: (Default)
 I really love this song, but somehow I always forget about it. I should download it, really.

In a related note, I really need to remember the line in my title. If I'm being honest, I am struggling to hold myself together at the moment. My good old distraction techniques work for the most part, but when I actually think about some of the stuff that's going on around me I just get really overwhelmed and upset. Plus, I had a flashback last night to my days at my old school because of a line in a fanfic I read (I never know what will get to me) and so that really doesn't help.

I don't really know what else to say about my week, except that it has been ridiculously up and down at best. snuggle_monster and I had an awesome musical night at my place, even if the musical part of that night was cut rather short. Oh well, we still managed to talk until 5am. Skill, we have them.

I then proceeded to sleep through my alarm, and got pissed off at myself for a number of reasons, and kind of exploded.
snuggle_monster, I'm sorry. I actually just needed to vent, and cry, and your logical and sensible arguments went completely unheeded and I apologise if I bit your head off unreasonably. I scare myself when I get like that, because I literally just don't comprehend reason - instead I am upset for the sake of being upset. Thank goodness I don't get like that often.

I forget that I'm not expected to know what to do at all times.

Anyway, enough of that. I have so much to do but I can hardly get myself to start (let alone finish) anything, what else is new... Procrastination you suck. I just know I'm going to end up winging my Indo oral exam, I just know it. I do have English notes, I just have to look up some key words and I do have all of tomorrow. Panic hasn't set in yet because of that.
I need to practice desperately. Oh, and my violin decided that last night was a brilliant time to start buzzing, 3 weeks out from my exam. Great.
I also have a list of random errands a mile long - most of which involve cash and so have been put 'on hold' as such until I get paid this week. Better be on time of I will throw something. I'm pretty sure I'll be flat broke in about a week or so. Fun times.

OH! In better news, I have my car back!! =D
Freedom is sweet. I won't be taking it for granted again for a while. and driving like a grandma
My Dad is also amazing, and I don't have to pay him back for anything until I get a full time job. So I owe a hell of a lot of money, but it's alright for now.

One last thing, I am turning 21 in less than a month. When did that happen?
My parents have decided that I should have a big party (I was going to go with smaller events, but hey i'm not complaining if they're paying...) so I'm currently trying to work out logistics. Just another method of procrastination.

I really should go now. Really really.
So. Bye. *waves*

 This weekend was awesome. I went on a 'camp' with N's church group, and it was so lovely just to be able to stop and relax for a day.
I did feel a bit anti-social, because I got there and had no energy so I chilled with my phone's slow internet and my Glee playlist on my ipod, but then I got dragged into a hilarious game called 'last word' that had us all in hysterics. And ate copious amounts of amazing food, and general silliness.
I got home, and have just been messing around here.

I did have a couple of moments on the weekend that I want to share though. It was a bit strange to be back in a Bible study kind of thing after a year of struggling with my faith and not going to church - but I couldn't have asked for better people to go back to it with. If/when I move over that side of town, I will definitely be going to church there. They feel like home.
In a related note, 'Steer' by Missy Higgins was played while a reflection time was happening, and I freaked out. You see, the very first time I went to this group (they call it 'Deeper') this song came on my ipod on the way home and I was struck with the utter relevance it had to how I felt with them, that I had once again found a spiritual home so to speak. For it to randomly be the song played today? Mind-blowing.


Just one more thing to say. I find the most wonderful things on tumblr. This is a song I love, covered by a different artist that I adore - and that sings in a pretty different genre. Somehow it works. Love her <3


That's all from me tonight!
Happy, relaxed Lauren is happy.

Well, classes anyway. It's enough for me.

Proper update! )

Phew! I think that's all the real life updating I wanted to do. Now, there are a couple of things I want to share.

I think that's more than enough from me, now. I'd better go pack!

 Listening to the Glee version of For Good, and sobbing. It's amazing, and this song is one of my favourites. Also a lot of memories I associate with it. <3

So, I haven't posted in a few days, I think, but it feels like a long time.
This week has pretty much consisted of me working on assignments, procrastinating said assignments, the orchestra concert (which went really really well - we pulled off Firebird!!) getting good at driving Dad's car, and just being ridiculously busy.

I am so glad I have Thursday off, even if I wasn't as productive as I could have been. No practice, but I am finally on top of these assignments. One more to do! ... Then I need to start actually studying.

Tonight, I went to see the student theatre version of 'The Witches' at uni - IT WAS SO AWESOME. Creepy as all hell. As it should be. Love.
It was so funny, while I was there I ran into B, a friend from gamelan last year - who was sitting with a friend of snuggle_monster's that I met at the sleepover a few weeks ago. It took me a while to recognise her, just because I didn't expect them to be sitting together. So random. It was good though, I went on my own so at least I had someone to chat to during interval.

I really want to reread the book now.

... I thought i had more to say. Oh well, tis bedtime! Night!

 Thanks to a conversation on fb with thalia03, I now can't stop the image of this


accompanying the line in my title from this


Short, silly post because I am trying NOT to think about how I'm going to pay my parents back the $3000 I'm going to owe them for my car. Just, ugh. I feel sooo guilty.

Also, 6 hours of orchestra has killed my brain. And my index finger (my callous came off OWWW). I have to study tonight... this is not going to end well.

 And then it comes crashing down. Almost literally.

I had a couple of good days where I finally was feeling okay about everything, and on top of my work, and then I managed to get in another car accident that was my fault. Misjudged stopping distance in the rain... Oh and it was on a major freeway, so police got called and I have a ticket for 'following too close'. Even though they actually weren't around to see if I was, it's just assumed. Gah. I don't need this. I feel so guilty too, as it was the fricking new car that my parents got me. *headdesk*

I could brush one incident like that off, but now my confidence on the road has been shaken. I just... I haven't been so afraid of driving since I was a petrified 16-year-old learner.
I'm amazed my Dad still lent me his car today... I wouldn't lend my car to me.

So easy to say getting up for my 8am lecture on 5 hours sleep was a struggle. Thankfully the day (kind of) improved from there.
My Indo teacher is all kinds of amazing. We had an assignment due today, which I emailed at like 1am, and in our 9am class she had it back, with suggestions, and told me to take a couple more days and add some stuff in. Just, wow.
Conducting was okay, although I kept zoning out. Oops.
Then I met up with thalia03 and we just talked about anything and everything, I ranted about cars and money and stress, and we laughed about all the random connections we have.
Then it was English. Ooh boy that tute was intense. We're studying Hamlet, and somehow the discussion hit too close to home, talking about depression. I was on edge, and getting a bit upset when I was talking at one point, and then got even more so when the tutor made a flippant comment that I took a lot of offense at. I was proud of myself, because I went up to him after class and politely pointed out that he should be more careful of how he says things like that because you just don't know what will trigger people. I know he didn't mean it the way he said it, and he understood and was really good about me pointing it out.
Oh, and another girl who barely knows me waited for me outside just to check that I was alright. thalia03 and I just about melted into a puddle. So sweet.

Speaking of, I am so happy to be getting to know you better, thalia03. Thank you so much for staying with me today, I really needed it.

I'm feeling pretty okay now, I don't have to take public transport to rehearsal tomorrow which is a relief, as it would have taken me 2 hours to do so - I can sleep in a bit now. Which I also desperately need. Now I am off to do a little study and just chill for a while.

Rdm

PS. I also had my orchestral assessment today, which went better than I expected but I'm still not sure if I'll have done well enough to pass first go.
rdm_ation: (Default)
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.
Rdm
rdm_ation: (Default)
 

I found this for someone else again last night, and ended up getting the giggles again. I swear I've had this, or a rather similar conversation before.
XD

Just a quick post to say that the past couple of days have been much better for me - I finally got a decent chunk of that Indo assignment done, after spending the weekend trying to work on it/procrastinating. I'm now just waiting for my teacher to respond to the email.

Yesterday was Mother's Day and so my brother and I were up early, making breakfast - and then we decided to surprise Mum by cleaning while she and Dad were at church. Mostly his idea, and he did most of the work tbh. Mum was impressed =P

Today, I slept in because my 9am class was cancelled, and screw going into uni for an 8am class and then having a 5-hour break. I'll just listen to it tomorrow.
So I had 1 hour of Indo class, then 2 hours of work, then back to uni for 3 hours of orchestra. Phew. I didn't get home until 11pm. Insanity.

One anecdote I just have to share, it's too awesome not too.
It was my friend J's bday today, and at the start of orchestra when we tuned, the concertmaster starts playing other notes, not just A. Soon everyone catches on and the entire orchestra is playing 'Happy Birthday' - complete with harmonies and everything. Made my night. 
I fricking love musos.

That's all. I need to go write a to-do list, can't put it off any longer.

PS. Darren Criss used the word 'bitchin' in a tweet today. [livejournal.com profile] pebblegosling  and [livejournal.com profile] snuggle_monster , your arguments are invalid.

I seem to have been doing this a lot lately, starting a post with a video of this artist. It's because she is amazing, and this song has cheered me up this morning.


It's so bouncy, I love it! (LOL at Darren's dancing too)
I really want to buy her cds, as well as the Starship cast recording. I don't really want to spend any more money until I've sorted out this car insurance crap (the guy hasn't called me back, odd) although I can probably spare it. I also want to buy an actual copy of Darren Criss' EP. Oh and Adele's album. Um. As you can probably guess, most of my money goes on music.

[livejournal.com profile] pebblegosling  just sent me this link, and I can't tell you how refreshing it is to hear someone talk about music like that. I mean, no genre bias, just talking about the music for what it is. One of the many reasons I love this man.

In other news, I am still firmly in denial about how much work I have to do. Like, I know how much there is, I even have a list and it's scarily long, but I can't seem to get myself to start. 
My brain is elsewhere at the moment, and actually, I need distractions more than anything. Perhaps I should go get a massage or something, try to relax. I'll stop this right here before I go around in circles.

 It's 1am, I have to be up for work in about 5 hours or so, and I am on an utter high right now.

I just got home from Washington's concert, and it was incredible. Absolutely incredible. Not only is she one extremely talented lady, she infused so many of the songs tonight with so much emotion, it was insane. I would put a lot of money on the fact that something has happened in her love life, I mean, the way she sang a couple of songs in particular tonight was so different to last time - you could just feel the raw heartache in her voice.

I went with snuggle_monster, thalia03 and her sister, and it was good to let go a bit. I've had a bit of a rough week (to put it lightly) which I might explain in an entry tomorrow, and so I am glad this was on tonight.

A couple of songs in particular got to me.
'Someone Else in Mind' was intense. Intense. I haven't heard or seen her sing with that much intensity ever. I was in awe. I also teared up a bit at that.
'The Hardest Part' was insanely high-energy and followed on well, but was a completely different tone. It worked.

Just another couple of points and then I will crash. Firstly, her stories are hilarious. She was drunk, as always, and was so funny. Innuendo, swearing, you name it. *chuckles* She cracks me up.
I noticed, and commented to snuggle_monster at one point that a lot of her songs had been slowed down. To which she replied 'yeah, they're all at drunkato tempo'. Me: *doubles over laughing*

Now, I'm as straight as people come. But tonight, good lord she was sexy. Whoa. Girlcrush is still going strong, evidently.
Perhaps my Kinsey scale number isn't as close to 0 as I thought


I can't always tell what is going to get to me the most, and this time the song came out of nowhere. It was actually my least favourite on the album, but tonight I just lost it a bit. I'll post the lyrics here for now, but it was something about the way she sang it, combined with recent events that just got to me.

All the things you've said
And things you've done
I remember, in memoriam
You said that you did
But you did not
Oh, you ache for something
God knows what

I sing every song I've ever sung
From what we were to what we'll become
And full of hope and electricity
Now I let you make a man of me

What can I do?
What can I do?
What can I do?
Now I am on fire
I believe you
I believe you
I believe you
I believe you, liar

I'M ON MID-SEMESTER BREAK WHEEEEEE

I had my Indo speech this morning, and Bu Y seemed pretty impressed so I'm really happy. Best part though, is that it's done. My lesson was decent, I have my new car, and I started my break by watching Glee with my brain-twin. 

All in all, happy Lauren is happy.

Since then I've been on tumblr, and have found much Glee goodness, but I honestly can't be bothered embedding it all here right now. I am going to spend my evening reading, and continuing to watch adorable Darren Criss interviews. In which he alternately reminds me of Finding Nemo 'unfathomonomable', using words like 'ancillary' and then 'awesomeness' in the same sentence, and reminding me of my friends. Not even pebblegosling this time, amazingly.
I liked this episode a fair bit, I mean MERCEDES GOT A STORYLINE. That wasn't about food. Her friendship with Rachel makes me happy. Not much Klaine, but what there was was absolutely adorable and sweet. 

A video for you, just because.

 


They're all so adorable. I feel like someone needs to tell Darren to take a break though, his voice is pretty scratchy :\
That's my goodnight.

I love that song so much. 

This week has been decidedly weird. There's all the drama with my car, assignments and everything - so naturally I ended up a bit stressed and strung out. A meltdown of sorts was inevitable... but I nearly made it to mid-semester break.
Yesterday I just lost it, because Ame and I had worked hard on our speech for Indo on Sunday, and thought we were good to go. Then, we read the unit guide and got really confused - so, we went and saw our teacher. Who confused us more, and I was so pissed and confused and stressed that we hadn't done it right and just ugh. I panicked, and got really upset - I hadn't done any practice then either, so I was worried about my lesson, and the fact that I had to go to work. We ended up skipping my second Indo class and I went and used the music room near her flat (she lives on campus) to play and make myself feel better. She also gives the most amazing massages, seriously I felt like I could move my shoulders properly for the first time in a long while. <3 Thank you.

Then, I get home last night and was told that one of my great-uncles has passed away. I'm sad, but more because I'm struggling to remember him. It's strange to think that had it been the same relation on my mum's side, I'd be devastated but because it's on Dad's and we really don't see them much I'm not. Sending my love out to the family though.

And that brings me to now. Still procrastinating fixing this speech and doing the powerpoint (even though it's tomorrow eek) and wondering just where time goes on Tuesday mornings. I'll work it out, but for now I'll leave this here.
Rdm

PS. It sounds strange because I do see them a bit, but I miss my friends. As in, I miss spending decent amounts of time just hanging out.

 My title is literal.

So, I had work today and my Dad was going to go and find out what we can do about my car, and I visited him at work to switch cars yada yada. This is how our conversation went:

Dad: so I went and got your car checked out, there's over 2 grand worth of damage.
Me: :O *blinks* Really? How did I manage that...
Dad: Yeah, it's not worth spending that much to fix it. So, I uh, bought you another car. I saw it yesterday and...
Me: Wait, WHAT?!
Dad: A Vectra station-wagon, auto.
Me: *brain still trying to process this*
THANK YOU SO MUCH

Once my Dad decides something, he doesn't screw around. Essentially, he bought me a better car than the one I had.
I honestly don't know what to say, my parents are amazing.
<3
rdm_ation: (Default)
Today was so up and down, it was ridiculous.

I've been in a bit of a down mood since the accident, mainly because of all my savings basically going down the drain.
[livejournal.com profile] pebblegosling , Japan is now looking very very unlikely. I'm sorry, and if I'm being honest that's what I'm most upset about. It's just like me to not realise just how much I want something until the chance is ripped away from me. I'm not even going to do any more calculations, because it'll just depress me.

Anyway, Dad (who has been amazing about this whole thing <3) let me take his car to uni (THANK GOD) today, and let me just say it is SO strange driving a 4-wheel-drive after my tiny little corolla. Goodness. It felt like a monster, even though it's only a small 4WD, as they go. Missing my music already, that's what keeps me sane driving that far every day.

So I get to uni, sit through English and can't focus at all, finally wake up for Indo. All normal, all fine, until one girl is getting her words muddled up and Bu Y decides to start singing. Why? No freaking clue.
'Jumat, Jumat, ada pesta pada hari Jumat' ... Friday. IN INDONESIAN. Best. Lecturer. Ever. Needless to say, after that I could NOT focus. Between laughing that my class ran with it (I am so ashamed that I will now never again confuse the words for tomorrow and yesterday - 'kemarin adalah Kamis' because of this damn song) or just getting the giggles whenever I thought of her singing it.

... It's been stuck in my head. All day.

Then it was another fairly boring music lecture, a break for lunch, and then I hung out with thalia03 before/after our English tute.
In which I remembered that I have a massive thing for intelligence in guys. A guy in my class did his presentation, and he spoke really ridiculously well and was so passionate about the poetry that he was talking about - he was cute too. I was sitting there and just went 'whoa okay you just got about 10 times more attractive to me'
Not that I showed that outwardly (although I think our tutor thought that, more on that in a second).
The poem we were studying was about a graveyard (fail!student, don't remember the name) and someone made a comment like 'Rameses believed that you aren't truly dead until no one remembers who you are'. All I could think of was Dumbledore, and said as much to thalia03. We both made exaggerated gestures with our hands over our heart and muttering, and I caught our tutor sending a confused look our way. Amusing.

I have to go work now, but one last thing:
I PUT MY NAME DOWN FOR SPRING AWAKENING. The orchestra. The director was so excited when I said I played violin, and was a second year music student and ahhhh I'm so pumped! And daunted, because I'll be the only violin if I do it. But mostly excited. I checked the dates, and it's after all of my actual orchestra stuff is finished so there won't be any clashes with that. WHEEEE.

That took the edge off my crappy mood, so <3

It's weird how the human body/mind reacts to certain things.

Today I ran into the back of another car, and boy did it scare the crap out of me. I'm perfectly okay, so don't you all fret. I was stopped in traffic, and we started moving, and then I zoned out for a second and bang. I feel like such an idiot right now. Luckily the guy whose car I ran into was really nice, and we just exchanged details and he was thinking straight whereas I really wasn't.
I'm still a little shaken up, even though this happened in the middle of the day, which is what the first line is referring to. Mostly now I'm just stressed because I rely on my car a LOT. Like, uni on Friday - I think I can use my brother's car, but the last thing I want to do right now is borrow someone else's car. OR for work on Saturday, what do I do about that? And when the hell am I going to find the time to take my car to get quotes for repairs and UGH.

Not to mention that it was completely my fault, so I will have to pay for the damage. *headdesk*

I was actually having a really good morning too. Indo was fun, my lesson was actually really good - goes to show that a little good practice > lots of dodgy practice. I also headed into the city to study with sine_animo for a while, which helped cheer me up a bit even if we didn't really talk much.
Thank goodness I have no plans and no obligations tomorrow though.
