Tomorrow, I leave for Indiana with my parents. We're stopping to spend the night in Kentucky, and we'll get there Friday. The audition is Saturday. I'm playing the first two movements of the Bach Sonata in E Major, and the first movement of the Hindemith Sonata.

My reading list for the drive:
  • Watchmen
  • 1984
  • Queen of Babble Gets Hitched
  • Eragon
  • Eldest
  • Brisingr
  • Chicken Soup for the College Soul
  • A David Sedaris Memoir, the name of which escapes me. The one with the skeleton on the front. Not Me Talk Pretty One Day, Not Naked... that other one.
  • Several issues of the New Yorker that I still haven't read, beginning with the Dec. 6th issue. Oops.
  • I might have packed something else, but I forgot about it if I did.
  • I'm also taking: Cloverfield
  • Thank You for Smoking
  • Sweeney Todd
Just in case we have nothing to do in our hotel room.

I found out (again, because evidently I opened this email earlier, and never actually showed it to Elizabeth... oops) that my FSU piano audition is February 7th. The only problem is that I don't feel very confident with my piano audition music anymore. I peaked last month, and haven't played it very much at ALL since. So I have to re-construct all my music. May God have mercy on my soul.

I'm going to go to bed now. Tomorrow, we begin the trek... after I eat breakfast at the local Greek restaurant with Madrigal Singers.

I've been thinking about you a great deal. I hope, really hope, that you do well with your audition.
