What's Going On...

I wonder if I can slow down long enough to make sense of my crazy life for a moment!

Last night was my first time teaching choir. It was great fun and so far, I have a boistrous group of 10: 9 girls and 1 boy. They are all aged 5-7. We will be singing four songs by ourselves and three with the rest of the choirs. Be sure to mark your calendars for the homeschool choir concert on Tuesday, November 29th.

I got a score of a 94 on my first speech: it was a how-to speech, and I chose how to do a Newsprint Manicure. There were diverse topics chosen in my class, with everything from how to train your puppy to how to make a paper airplane to how to get a job to how to wrap a present! I did feel like my speech went well, and I had a built-in visual aid! Jenae accompanied me because she had nothing to do and I needed a model, so I promised her a free mani. My next speech is an informative and I think I will give it on the music of Hawaii, since I already know a lot about that--thanks to my world music midterm last year.

I'm still working about 20 hours a week. I work on Thursday nights, Fridays, and Saturday afternoons (specifically 10:30-2:30). Stop in if you ever feel like it. If I'm allowed to say so, I'm really glad we're back to our non-summer hours. I enjoy getting home before 11 PM :) and I'm almost done with my Rserving class (it's a responsible alcohol serving class I need to take to keep my job. I'm doing it online and I have 2 lessons and my final exam left. I'm hoping to finish the class today actually (if I ever get off facebook;).

My first French quiz is tomorrow! :S I feel like I am doing well in all my classes, but French especially... For those I haven't bragged to, I'm taking 20 credits this semester. They consist of the following: American Literature, Intro to ASL, Elementary French I, Beginning Guitar, Public Speaking, MS Excel (online. I hate this one.), private voice and private piano. My mom suggested I find out if I could a credit or two for being in the Christian Center Christmas musical but I decided I can't cough up the money to pay to get them as credits. The free tuition waiver only works for 14-18 credits plus fees, so even though my "tuition was free" (quote-unquote), I still ended up paying close to a thousand dollars between books, fees, and whatever else. Hopefully in the spring I will be able to take closer to eighteen and it will be a little cheaper for me - plus I won't be saving like crazy for the London trip over spring break!

I'm also getting ready for a small piano recital next week at the hospital. I'll be playing four or five songs, just for some closure before I start new ones. It's gonna be right in the lobby at 4 PM on Saturday, September 24th if you'd care to come.

I found a photo of the boy/kid version of me right now. Am I crazy?! (The short answer is probably yes...) But I'm really enjoying my life:)

What's going on with you right now??
