Today I have an audition for Columbus ProMusica, which is cool. It is a three hour drive, and my dad is taking me. Which is unusual because usually, my mom takes me, I go by myself, and in one instance Bridget came along. So I don't know how this will go. Audition days can be a roller coaster of intense emotion--nervousness, excitement, disappointment, sorrow, remorse inconsolable agony. You know. But it's like this--if he is not ready to leave when I am, I am stealing the car and driving home and he can ride his recumbent bicycle back. And that's that. I speak so candidly because he will never read my blog. :)
As you may know, I have a job where I work overnight at a gas station. It is not the most spectacular, but the pay is good, and it doesn't require a great emotional investment. Tuesday night I worked overnight, so that Wednesday was a manic day of practicing and lunching with Sumner. I went to bed at 7PM. It was....it was spectacular. I noticed a tiny footstool in my practice room and this was the result:
Reedmaking table! And here is an image of me at the desk to give you a little perspective:
Idon't know why I am making that face. Probably because I had been awake for a long time.
So that's all. Wish me luck!
