I just finished putting the semester's last assignments and exam dates into my planner. It's turning into a checklist pretty much. Once a few more assignments are turned in and a few tests are taken, I'll be all ready for graduation! It will be amazing to be able to do things this summer like go to the library and check out books to read for fun or go visit family and friends! Before Lent I deactivated my Facebook account, but when Lent ended, I decided to get it back. It took getting rid of Facebook to realize how important it is for me to stay in touch with people and to realize how great Facebook is!
I thought everything would slow down this close to the end, but the schedule keeps getting packed. It's not just the professors who are trying to get last bits into the semester. Saturday night my friend Beverly and I performed the "Macavity the Cat" dance from the Broadway musicale "Cats" in a Delta Omicron music club Gala. It was fairly informal and a lot of fun. Students from Judson, Marion Military Institute, Judson faculty and staff, and even members of the community participated. Two other groups of dancers from the dance group did pieces. The first was a two couple rumba to the song "Apologize" and the second was a gorgeous original dance to the song "We're So Far Away". Vocalists sang pieces ranging from "Adele's Laughing Song" to "Hansel and Gretel". Everyone did a fantastic job!
I had my last voice lesson earlier today. Right now I'm mainly working on "Voi Che Sapete". There's a non music major voice recital this Thursday that Dr. Betty wants me to perform it in. This will be my first and probably last voice recital. I'm way nervous!
Other than the voice recital, there are several other events coming up. Tomorrow the Marion Military Institute drama club will be putting on "Tom Sawyer". Sunday there's a Judson choir spring performance. This weekend there's the Muckle's Ridge festival. Saturday there'll be Gala Part 2. I want to attend everything, but know I need to keep cranking through my studying to do list.
