two weeks left

I'll probably post more once I get back from EUROPE, but for today I thought I'd share a quote that my friend Keith left on his facebook:

                     "Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan, 'press on' has solved, and always will solve, the problems of the human race. 
-Calvin Coolidge"

This, people, is a wonderful quote... and I'm a total nerd for good quotes. That, and Romantic music. (from the Romantic period, lol) Well, I'm a nerd for a lot of things, but the point of sharing THIS quote in particular is that it's very near the end of the semester. It's time to kick it up a notch if I ever want to reach my goals. (SK)

My barrier is coming, and I still have to sing for Big. Big seminar is when all the vocal majors gather together to perform for one another. Small seminar is the students of your teacher and the rest of their personal students gathering, which in my case is Mrs. Davis. Dr. Howard is with us also because we're pretty small still, and he only has one student. I'm not too worried about the barrier thing, although it's arguably more important. I was SUPPOSED to sing for Big on Monday, but they ran out of time. So I spent the whole time tense and nervous.
I haven't sung in front of most of these people yet, (peers, respected faculty, etc.) and in my brain I know it's silly to be worried, but I am! I've sung in front of thousands of people. Silly brain.... and it's not like I'm unprepared, because I could sing most of the pieces I've been working on in my sleep. It's just that extra rush of adrenaline which will either move down to my legs, causing them to shake, or move into my energy bank, making me rock out loud. We'll see, lol.
It just feels so weird to me that it's already the end of the semester.
I also can't believe that I've been dating Nathan for almost ten months. Time sure flies.
