Today was my last official school day, where I went to the Mellon Institute and played in the Daniel Matsukawa master class. For those of you who don't know, Mr. Matsukawa is the principal bassoon of the Philadelphia Orchestra . The master class went so well. I took a lot of notes and my brain is processing all this information. It's also important to mention that the CMU bassoon studio can really wail--on their bassoons, of course.
You know who else can really wail, is my little dog, Spike. He needs a lot of attention to prevent him from digging through the garbage or eating cat feces. But he is really, REALLY adorable.
My new job is going well. I am having trouble adjusting to my schedule because I am working full-time overnight for my winter break. But it's not all bad, next week I am going to visit Adrian in Philadelphia,which will be a delight and a relief. I feel like I haven't seen him in forever.
There are a few other things I have been doing and also purchased (D&B coin purse for $6!), but that will come later. Right now I have to go to bed.
