Well, most of you probably already know that I'm a music crazy person, and yes, my blog title is homage to Berlioz, although hopefully I won't have quite the idee fixe that he did, particularly not one that ends with witches and a Sabbath dance. Not so pretty for him.

This is where I'll eventually get to work on moving my other blogs and then posting them here, although I haven't been updating quite as much as I would like to. I'm in my second semester at a new college (went to another one for two years, decided that sleeping even less than I do now was bad, so I transferred). I'm a music ed/special ed double major with a focus in cognitive impairment, and a minor in psychology. I play percussion (four mallet, rudimental/orchestral snare, timpani, I'm a true percussionist and wrath on you if you call me "just a drummer"), as well as saxophone, flute, clarinet, piano, a bit of brass, and I'm working on the singing.

Now that I feel like I'm done with the "I like long walks on the beach and dogs" part of the program, I suppose I'll move on. I've actually had access to the blog for quite a while, but it just never quite seemed like the right time to open one up. Now I've got the time, and it's helping me to put off my studying for my exams that start on Monday. Five exams and one take-home in three days makes me a relatively busy girl, but then I head home for my sister's graduation from college, and then Florida for four days - and I'm not allowed to bring textbooks or my percussion practice pad. I may or may not be around - Mom said I can use her laptop but we're also doing the whole relaxation thing, so I might not be around at all. If you want to get a hold of me, I'm sure you can figure out the people who know how to. I'll be hopping on to check PMs and other every so often, so that will work as well.

SS-wise, I'm finally very happy with where my characters are going. This semester's been kind of hard for me - I stopped playing for a while in February because of real life problems, and then it's kind of been off and on since. I've had 21 credits this semester (9 different classes) and it seems as if they all want to have big projects due at the same time (such as last week). Hopefully for spring semester (which will start after the Florida trip) I'll have far less class, far less work, and I will be able to work my characters in the direction that I want them to go.

Now that I've written far too much (although there are still random things whirring around in my head), it's time to head back into SS and play a bit more tonight while studying for all my exams. Bravo if you made it all the way to the end of this, and you get brownie points, which can be redeemed at a later date for particular prizes.
