My Brain is Melting Out of My Head

I have been back in town for five days, and I can only really say one thing--I'm a tired Beaver (thank you Bridget for this amusing expression).  I am noticing that if I don't write things immediately I will forget and I went to bed before 10 two nights in a row.  It's okay--soon I will have caught up on my sleep and will be able to accomplish great things once again.

New York was great--my audition went as well as could be expected, and I got to be in the same room as some of my biggest role models.  And play the bassoon for them!  And they didn't throw up in disgust.  I also got to eat a lot of good food, visit with Benton, and become well-versed in the public transportation systems of New York City and South Eastern Pennsylvania.  I spent two days in Minneapolis with the UW-Madison Wind Ensemble, putting on exciting shows for the kiddies and eating more good food.  I was trying not to drink any alcohol before my Juilliard audition, as now that I am 23, hangovers last two days, but I did buy the biggest Bloody Mary known to man, and it was garnished with a shrimp!  Can you believe it?  How decadent!

Now that I'm back in town, I only have one more thing on my list of things before I can go home for Spring Break--my masters recital.  I'm having a hard time getting excited about it right now, but I'm taking the night off from bassoon (my first night off in a looooooong time) to listen to music and write program notes.  I also bought some nail polish and two new pens!  As you can tell, there is never a dull moment in the life of Kika Wright.  I think I might put in a silly movie and think about the next time I can have a bloody mary...
