Life lately has consisted of a lot of ups and downs (as life always does) We have done a lot of traveling this summer, some of it planned and some of it to be with grieving family.
I turned 24. I know I'm still so young, but saying that I'm 24 doesn't seem quite right. I feel like I should be saying I'm 18, haha.
I interviewed for a position I very much wanted this summer, my job I have is still wonderful, but I really was hoping for this position. I didn't get it.
I've started teaching piano and voice students and I have been on the roller coaster of emotions about that. From being incredibly happy to being paid back in full for not practicing as much as I should have when I was a child. I was feeling a little lost lately, specifically in music. My job while in teaching is not full time music and I was starting to miss being a part of something. I decided to try out for the Nashville Symphony Chorus. I tried not getting my hopes up that I would get in. I've been working very hard the last month preparing for the audition. This last week I have been nothing but a bundle of nerves trying to stay focused and keep working while trying not to get my hopes up too much. Yesterday I got the news... that I got in!! I feel as if a little cloud has been cleared from above my head. I'm so excited to be a part of a group again. The first rehearsal is tonight and I could hardly sleep last night anticipating it.
That it a little bit of what has been going on here. Here are some snap shots from the past few weeks.
My lovely family made me a Doctor Who themed cake and gave me a fez and bow tie to wear for the festivities.
Tyler and I went to a fabulous exhibit at the Frist on Art Deco cars. They were all to die for.
Tyler built me a fort in our living room and we watched old movies. It was dreamy.
I've gotten lots of lovely gifts. Beautiful Royal Copley pieces that adorn my table, gorgeous Miss L Fire shoes, and Bakelite brooches (I can't wait to show you the adorable yellow Scottie dog I got).
I've enjoyed going out as it's gotten hotter for a sweet treat from Las Palates.
This is a crappy photo but it shows exactly how excited I was last night when I heard I got into the Nashville Symphony Chorus.
