That is a good plan. My class starts today and I carried the text book with me, but I should have left it home as I did not even open it.

^That happens way too often.

 

Biology, I currently have a C, which works for me, considering the fact that I thought I was falling a little behind. We're apparently not even halfway through the points.

 

When it comes to trumpet, I'm getting much better at a rapid pace! I really got at the good practice habits this semester and it's paying off nicely. :)

Good practice habits, just like good study habits return large rewards! We need you to post a midi!!! As for the biology, I do believe you are really trying and that is what is important. Biology is a tough subject. Keep up the good work.

Yeah, Jesse, I just got really serious about it this semester and Southern California is a perfect place to be a freelance player, so I'm pretty set for success. :D

 

All recitals are posted online. So very possible. :)

A trip for my two minute performance. That would be something. :lol:

I have many, many performances coming for the rest of my life, and you guys are invited to anything you'd like to see. I would recommend waiting a few years for when I'm really good. :P

Sure... I will stop by - Kat's - house and pick her up on the way. Besides, I find any reason to ride my bike.

 

Wait... I don't think so. We need to be able to say we knew you when you had these two minute performances!

You know what I should have mentioned? The three times this semester I've met trumpet greats. xD I've met Malcolm McNab, Don Clarke, and Wayne Bergeron, all featured in many a movie score. And I've performed with Clarke and Bergeron in jazz band. :lol:

 

Small details I forget to mention.

How exciting that you have met some very great musicians! Music is the blood of my soul. I do not believe I could live without music and the great people who create those wonderful sounds.

 

Small details... LOL

Oh, finals time for musicians. Well, I guess they're probably not as hectic for people in fewer ensembles.

But I had something like 6 performances within a week, so that was kind of crazy.

Just one week left for finals! Then, I get to breathe. With two online classes for the summer.

I'm taking politics and general psychology.

Currently, I'm trying to finish up an essay that was due a week ago. The very last thing I have left of school before I'm done for summer. I'm as stricken with writer's block as ever, and I'm not entirely sure I'll pass the class regardless of this essay and I'm simply doing it in order to attempt to pass the class.

On the bright side, my difficulties with said class have been a matter of not really balancing my time in relation to music, I've improved exponentially on trumpet.

As you have experienced, choices have consequences. Congratulations on the improvement on the trumpet, and I am hoping you pass your class. Not turning in the essay would be far worse and I applaud you for making the effort to get the essay in. I have a good feeling that you will pass if you turn in the essay. Invite your professor to one of your concerts. :lol: Perhaps this will influence them. :lol:

I'm going to have to take a lab science again. Woops. Lesson learned?

Anyway, online classes start today. 6 weeks, two classes, let's do this! Ahahahah. Here's to hoping I can get through this.

Hooray! Well, Politics will be a little harder, seeing as it's all writing. But the psychology course looks like half of an effort from the professor, meaning I could likely get through the material in two weeks if I really want to.

It would be great if you could get through the psychology course in two weeks, but don't you have to only do the prescribed lessons at the specified times? I know that when I took a course, you were not permitted to work ahead and had to contribute each week. Is this the same with your courses?

In this particular course, the exams are all available from the start. In fact, it seems it is all graded by exams.

Lucky you!!! I wish my courses were like yours. My courses have a requirement that you do not post one second early and if you do post early, then you will be docked. Ouch!!!

Psych had a test due Sunday, about 10 or more people sent out class emails trying to figure out various problems with the test, including myself, and still nobody has managed to contact the professor. This may result in failing grades. -.-

Scratch that, the professor has finally checked his email as of a couple of hours ago. One exam grade is dropped regardless, so that's how we get to deal with that last test. Also, we've been given an additional half hour to our next tests. Still, it's a pain. These tests are available over the weekend, but otherwise we have little work.

WOW!!! I want that course and professor!!! Of course, this test should be voided and not the one selected to delete. Do they select the worst exam grade to delete? Hopefully it would be even better if this was the case. What I found annoying was the fact that some professors are lazy when it comes to checking their email. I did not expect an immediate answer, but an answer that arrived within at least forty-eight hours.

 

Good luck in your summer courses, I absolutely, positively know you will do great!!!

I've had it with the technical problems for this would-be easy A psychology class. I'm more than likely going to have to drop the class.

I am sorry that you have to drop the course, but I completely understand. I dropped an online course for exactly the same reason.

I'm hoping to get money back, even though I dropped after the deadline, considering I was not getting the proper responses necessary to complete the course.

They should give you your money back, but good luck fighting for that. Sometimes they just prolong things, hoping you will give up and forget about pursuing the refund.

It's difficult to fight something when it would be partially my own fault for dropping, as well.

You are correct. The one thing I feel is that when there are technical difficulties and the lack of email response, then it is a good reason for dropping a course.

Haha, this school practically never stops. I mean, it does for a period of a few weeks after Summer and Winter classes, but otherwise, not so much. But, with California budget cuts we might not have those off season classes anymore. :wacko: School has been going well, going insane doing too much as usual. :lol: Soon enough I'll have to fill out papers to transfer to a 4-year.

You will have the pick of whatever four year school you wish to attend. You have done well, studied and gotten great grades, have a musical side that only adds to your resume and have done other things that would make any school want you to be one of their students! I think that you will have a hard decision to pick the school you wish to complete your four year degree at. They will all want you!!!

I have 3 schools in mind, all to stay relatively close to home and all great music schools. Also, fairly easy transfer. Actually, filling out forms due to be done by the end of next month. Pretty exciting.

I hope life is treating you well.

 

On another note... have your heard from your jail friend? What is he doing now that he is out? Has he contacted you?

Life update!

 

A lot of being busy, just with a lot of stuff. Winter classes just started, before that, during that little break, I was working/playing trumpet/spending time with my significant other/spending time with my family a lot. Life is treating me pretty well, I'm on a pretty positive thinking track at the moment.

 

Let's see... I had one roommate move out, another one just moved in. She's not officially signed on the lease, so it was really awkward when the manager was on a smoke break and could clearly see her moving her stuff into my apartment. Here's to hoping the manager says nothing and I can just keep paying my rent like usual, because I really just didn't want to fuss with paperwork when it's someone I trust.

 

Jail friend! Well, actually, haven't really talked to him much. About a week before his birthday, all the way back towards the end of February, he deleted me from his "friends." I knew he was trying to start something, relating to me not having visited him more than once, nor had I been talking to him much. Honestly, I was just tired of him being pushy, so I let it go. I texted him happy birthday when the time came, he replied some form of thank you, and that was the end of that. Then he didn't talk to me again until my birthday, and his since only a couple more times texted me about his music projects. He just recently texted me a belated merry Christmas/happy New Year, and I just replied a brief "Same to you!" When he was a regular part of my life, even before all of this, he was just an exhausting person. Yes, we were close, but he required so much attention, no doubt how he ended up with his problems in the first place. What I've heard is he was writing some music, ended up working night auditing at a hotel like he used to, stopped doing that, and I believe he's currently working in a barber shop.

 

I guess overall, the year 2012 treated me really well, and so I ended up not letting the negative stay in my life. The guy I wasn't sure about, the guy that said he wanted to change and be there for me after a year and a half of not knowing what was going on with him? It's been almost a full year since the sappy declaration of love and changes, and things are better than ever. It strikes me as odd that I'm looking at this relationship in ways I haven't with others, a little more long term and never really thinking of it as, "Well, things are going to change soon, because I'm young and I'll probably get bored of him eventually because that's what always happens." He likes making me happy, and I like making him happy, and we both like pushing each other towards our goals, so I think this is going somewhere good.

Thank you so much for the update! How about a photograph of you and your significant other!!! Please! Glad things are positive for you in the new year!!!

 

Hopefully the manager will not say anything to you about your roommate. As long as the rent is paid, they usually do not say much. It is only when the money does not show when they get fussy. If you were to change names on the lease, then there might be more paperwork and hassles for the manager, so perhaps she does not "want to know". Perhaps this will be good for you.

 

Good news that jail friend is moving on. Whatever the reasons and motives, at least this allows you to have the friendship on your terms. You do not need any negatives dragging you down, which it sounds like you are successful at minimizing. You keep doing what you are doing and relate to him on your terms. He needs to find a place where he is happy and this will mean not relying on you. Great news!!!!

 

Your relationship sounds very, very promising. I am so very happy for you. This sounds like you are going to have a most wonderful year.

Alrighty, sorry for the long absence again! Been really focused, doing schoolwork and practicing. A lot. And hanging out with my boyfriend. Funny story, I accidentally changed my relationship status on facebook to engaged for a minute, which was the most terrifying minute of my life and at least 5 people saw it and legitimately thought I was engaged.

That should teach you! :lol: Be careful what you post... if Facebook likes it, they own it. And you cannot take it back. :o

*imagines Mega Wolf's boyfriend hearing they are engaged on an advertisement by Facebook*

Ohhhhh... surprise! :lol:

 

Wonderful that you stopped back in. I was wondering how you were doing. TBFOF stopped in on my topic. It was terrific hearing from him!

Slowly but surely pushing my way towards adulthood. :P Paying more bills, drinking more coffee, working harder to get important things done. I have my 21st birthday in a week. Probably won't be too exciting, considering it'll be a Monday.

My how time flies!!! Adulthood is so over-rated. Yes, you can do what you want when you want, or so you think, but that is only after you have taken care of your other responsibilities and that is if you are not too tired. Working to pay bills is a big junk of time.
