Well, I came home for Thanksgiving. And I was supposed to have a connection flight in Atlanta. However, my flight from Oklahoma City to Atlanta was delayed an hour, and then in Atlanta I went to the wrong gate, because I thought I was supposed to get on the 10:45 to Raleigh. I was actually supposed to get on the 10:45 to Greensboro.

Guess who missed his flight?

Anyway, I spent the night in Atlanta, and got home the next morning at 9.

I fly back tomorrow (Thank God the only logical flight choice to Oklahoma is Oklahoma City) for rehearsal.

It's been a good trip home: I got to see a bunch of people, and I got to eat oreo stuff, carrot cake, and pumpkin cheesecake. Maybe Dad will make pancakes tomorrow... it's possible. I didn't actually ask him to, but maybe he'll think of it.

Oh well. If not, I'll just be sure to request it for Christmas.

Madeline Kahn and Grover Duet

I LOVED this video when I was a little kid.

I was given three accompaniments today, and promised a fourth.
I still haven't wrapped my mind around the fact that my purpose here is to study music almost exclusively.
What a wonderful way to live...

Forgive me...

...while I vent.

All I want is for a guy I'm interested in to be interested in me. Is that really so much to ask? It shouldn't be this difficult to find a time to talk to a guy without him being surrounded by so many people. I mean, I suppose it makes sense. He's charismatic and is a good leader. This strongly contributes to why I like him, but it also means that EVERY time I see him he's talking to somebody else, or busy doing something.

I would actually be totally fine with him not liking me. But this whole "I like you but I don't know whether or not you like me" thing is driving me up the wall. And it's my fault. I'm the one that hasn't worked up the courage to tell him that I like him. It's because I get really self-conscious around guys that I like, and also because I don't necessarily want an audience if I'm going to tell someone that I like them/ask them on a date. It's nerve-wracking enough to ask the person themselves, so who needs that added pressure?

I know I'm worrying too much about this. It's really not a big deal at all. I'm just at a point in my life where I'd like to have a significant romantic relationship with someone, especially now that I'm off somewhere that I don't have to worry quite so much about what people would think about me dating a guy. And certainly I shouldn't care at all if it bothers people. Most cases I don't, but back home I would have probably worried more that someone would say something to somebody else, and that person would tell someone, and eventually it would get back to members of my family who may not know yet. I mean, I'm not opposed to them knowing. I'd certainly rather not have to hide any part of who I am, but I'm not emotionally prepared to deal with some people finding out. I'd rather it be on my own terms.

So now here I am, nineteen hours away from home at college. I haven't been home in nearly four months, and I think I'm pretty safe as far as local gossip goes. (Although, who can tell with facebook now. Whatever.) And yet, I'm single. In the worst sense of the word.

I think I would be a good boyfriend, if I could just GET there.

I was going to talk to him tonight, but he wasn't where I thought he would be.

Monday. I have hopes for Monday.

In an unrelated topic, I don't know what I want to do with my life. I alternate between being terrified by this, and being totally fine with it.

Just let me sing. I want everything else to go away, so I can sing.

I really can't wait to go home for Thanksgiving.

I have the opportunity to go to Austria for two weeks this summer. While there, I would participate in the Classical Musical Festival in Eisenstadt. This entails several performances, including a performance of Haydn's Mass in a Time of War as high mass one Sunday in the Bergkirche, which is the church where the mass was premiered all those years ago.

I really want to go.
To facilitate this goal, I will be getting a job next semester.

I've been talking to my friend A a lot, and she's been giving me a lot of really good advice about being a music major and a pianist. I'm really glad I know her.

I really hope that I'm not being too ambitious with this class next semester.

I hate waiting when you don't know what's going to happen. I would be SO much happier right now if I could just get an answer. It's not even the fact that I don't know yet, it's the fact that I thought I was going to get an answer like three times, just to find that I'd gotten some random spam mail.

I need to update this more frequently.

My adorable nephew dressed up as a "pider" (spider) for Halloween.
There are pictures at my sister's blog, which should be linked somewhere to the right of this... look for something that says "Whit Bits."
