IJournals: 42 (8/6)

So I’m not actually writing this in the airport, but I just wanted to record it. My plane had a freaking 8 hour layover. It was only supposed to be 3. I sat a in dark corner of the airport and just called people. I called friend SH first, and he was so cute andContinue reading “IJournals: 42 (8/6)”

IJournals: 41 (8/5)

    I’m on the plane going from TVC to Chicago. But let me back up. This morning was sweet and sad. I walked over to stone early to say goodbye to the piano family. I was quiet and it was sad, but we were al trying to be cheerful and joke around. I leftContinue reading “IJournals: 41 (8/5)”

IJournals: 40 (8/5)

Yesterday was the last full day. The cabin went to Bud’s for breakfast, and we ran straight to the awards ceremony where I got a Fine Arts Award! Then I packed. Friend MK was already crying, and I wasn’t, but when I hit the cabin and saw all the suitcases and everyone packing, I tearedContinue reading “IJournals: 40 (8/5)”

IJournals: 39 (8/3)

Today was amazing and emotional and crazy. I obviously didn’t practice. We sat in the library and watched Mulan. My accompanying class got Mofro. I know the teacher was trying to be nice, but I really just wanted to spend time with the piano family before everyone leaves. I had lunch with them, then wentContinue reading “IJournals: 39 (8/3)”

IJournals: 38 (8/2)

I love friend SH. Really. I saw him in line for dinner, and he just held out his hands for a hug because he didn’t like how his Beethoven Sonata went at the recital. SH. Perfect people screw up, too. Then, later, he saw friend ML and I. We both just raced to hug himContinue reading “IJournals: 38 (8/2)”

IJournals: 37 (8/2)

Today was sad. I practiced. Then I hung out and had friend JW, J, and JR teach me to improvise on the blues scale. Then I ran to a class because it was pouring. We were taking pictures and saying goodbye because Friend EK is leaving tomorrow. Lunch with the pianist. It was bittersweet. IContinue reading “IJournals: 37 (8/2)”

IJournals: 35 (8/1)

Camp is winding down, and everyone is feeling it. We practiced 8-hand. Then I visited friend JW’s hut, where I decided right there that I was going to learn his piece. It’s beautiful. BEAUTIFUL. So I did that. Then I walked to ensemble with friend ML, where the teacher told us that we were good.Continue reading “IJournals: 35 (8/1)”

IJournals: 33 (7/30)

Ahhh. A horrible day turned good. I woke up in a sucky mood (hello, this is 3-days with no shower, slept in dirty clothes that I sweat in, teeth not brushed, painful toe…) and the morning just sucked. Ensemble sucked. Then I went to see the doctor, who referred me to a clinic in theContinue reading “IJournals: 33 (7/30)”

IJournals: 32 (7/29)

Messed around all morning, and lunch…and afternoon. Friend ML and I listened to pop music and played by ear, until friend SH came and blew us out of the water by instantly playing a piece we had been going at for an hour. Mardy Graw was fun. I was hyper, and I got all theContinue reading “IJournals: 32 (7/29)”

IJournals: 28 (7/26)

Went to the Bach Seminar again. Then practiced 8-hand, because, surprise! The teacher found another copy. It sounds like crap. We are performing on Thursday. After, Friend ML came to my hut (like usual) and we just hung out. He would occasionally snort at how frustrated I was with my piece. Whatta great friend. IContinue reading “IJournals: 28 (7/26)”
