So, basically after spring break everything started to REALLY kick in. The month of April is going to be filled with so much. I have two final projects (both will probably end up being a power point presentation–more about them later), I have to keep practicing my piece for my jury during final exam week, Mu phi initiation is coming up towards the end of April, the Symphony/Choral Union concert. SO MUCH.
My spring break was wonderful. I got to see my favorite band, Muse, perform at Ft. Worth Convention Center. Let me tell ya, empowering. Holy crap. And I also got to do 5 senior photo shoots so, that really bulked up what I hope will eventually be a legitimate portfolio. And just hanging out with friends and family was amazing. I can’t wait for summer. It’ll be all that + a summer job. Ha.
Between spring break and easter break I felt like nothing ever really slowed down except for the weekend. I don’t want to put down other majors, but being a music major makes me feel like I don’t have as much free time. But granted, I don’t have much of a social life so I’m able to get everything done and (usually) the amount of practice time that I need. I’ve also become even better at time management since I’ve been here. I’ve learned to space out assignments and projects so that I’m not waiting until the last minute to do things. I don’t see any other way of getting through college. There’s so much work to do that leaving everything until the last minute would leave me VERY depressed.
Speaking of depression, it’s so hard to be away from home having to deal with all of this. I’ll admit it was a lot harder in the beginning and it probably wouldn’t be as big of a deal if I actually liked my roommate, but I find it hard to get myself to want to come back here. I think most of it has to do with my living situation because I like my classes, my professors, and most of the people I’ve met here. But I do get a lot of my work done in my room so, it’s really difficult to concentrate when there’s another person in the room that I don’t really like. I’m so jealous of people that only have a “suitemate” and just share a bathroom. That can have it’s problems if you don’t like the person too, but it isn’t NEARLY as annoying. I actually have room reservations for next year coming up on Thursday and I’m really excited to have that all set in stone, especially with a new roommate. The weekend before easter, I went with my future living buddies to look at sophomore dorms and it made me really excited for what’s to come. My new roommate and I click better and we both click with our future suitemates (who are my current suitemates). It’s going to be SO much better. I’ll still have to deal with the long distance relationship and not having my closer friends around, but it’ll definitely be A LOT better than what’s going on now.
