Something you should know about me.... I am a delicate flower.

No, really. I am very delicate physically. I hurt easily and I get sick easily. I'm sick at least 2 or 3 times per semester. Monday I woke up with the most horrible phlegmy chest cough and a fever. The fever broke that night, but now it's back. This is particularly frustrating because I've had to miss a day of school and I'm scheduled to sing for class performances Friday and Monday. Huzzah for the first wave of sick!

The Friday performance can be postponed, if need be, but the Monday one is firm and it's my chance to be able to sing on Third Friday. My accompanist thinks I've got a really good shot at it, but not if my voice isn't up to par. It's frustrating.


Not to mention I'm way behind in my learning of Magic Flute. Learning an entire opera is a big feat, and I'm doing the props for it as well. And I need my German and Spanish pieces for this semester learned by Thursday. Which is doable, but being sick is NOT helping. (The German in particular has this crazy modified chromatic scale that is kicking my butt and I need to be able to sing it to get it in my head/voice right. But it's still nowhere near as crazy as some of the stuff I've been singing in Dona Nobis Pacem.) And of course I can't get in touch with my accompanists/coaches to work on them.... sigh. I also need to figure out if I'm doing the Classical Scholarship Competition this semester.. I opted not to do NATS, so I should probably do this at least...

Did I mention I got my first paid singing job? I'm singing for a Palm Sunday service... two pieces. I'm really nervous! I only get to run-through with the accompanist right before the gig. But I have the peeeeeeeeeeeeerfect dress for it!

In the bright side, I've been getting a ton of writing and even a little bit of drawing done during all this time. Though maybe I should replace some of that with more sleep.

Uhmmmm... other than that, medicine is gross and I want to not be sick anymore by this weekend. Special Repo! showing at a horror festival in Hollywood and Ogre will be there!

And uh... yeah. Medicine is gross.

These are my new choices for icons... some are rolling over from my current set. Any favorites/least favorites? :D Also, I'm looking for a banner to make this journal (mostly) friends only.. but I'm not really savvy to icon/banner making communities... suggestions please? :D

Last week started the beginning of Hell. Opera tech started last Wednesday and I've been there for about 4 to 5 hours everyday after classes every night since then, and will continue to be until the show this Friday and Saturday. Granted, I'm glad we're getting so much time, we definitely need it!

So, my life is being consumed by class performances, opera tech rehearsal, and the nearing end of the semester.

Also, this pretty much sums up how I'm feeling tonight, having stayed up way past when I was tired for no reason.

"If you don't expect much, you won't be disappointed." 

Damn straight.

I am a coward. I also am dismayed that I have apparently forgotten all about how to do this.

That said, the rest of the night was absolutely fantastic. Oi.

Today is the Opera Buff's concert, showcasing the best up and coming singers in the region. Ms. Ketchum has tickets so me and a few others of us from PCC's Opera Program are going to go and see it! I'm excited, it should be awesome!

Got my stained glass lolita dress in, so my "dia de los muertos doll" costume will probably happen at some point this halloween season.

Speaking of the Halloween... the Halloween musical I'm in... ugh. I don't even KNOW how it's going to work. Gonna be drilling lines all week. I mean... I'm not gonna complain when I've got the lead, but we've only JUST gotten our music. Garrett's not pleased either, he's playing TWO roles, so he's got way more to learn.

which translates from Latin as 'To the point of absurdity.'

The working name of the story is Ad Absurdum, but that was already taken. Adeo is a slightly more technically correct way to say 'to the point of.'

Please feel free to head over and add it if you like. The journal will contain notes, blurbs, sketches, character profiles... all sorts of developmental tidbits. I'm about to go make an art post over there, so to get you interested I'll give you a sneak peak! I appreciate all sorts of discussion/bouncing of ideas/critique.

Holy fucking shit.



*SQUEAL* I love living in California. <3

This means I will need to complete my gothloli coordinate before AX as well as my red classic one.

New Icons! I'd been feeling I wanted to change up my LJ userpics for awhile now... and I finally got around to it. These are some of my favorites.. but it was incredibly hard to choose considering how many I have.  Most of them I don't have credit for, so if they're yours/you know whose they are let me know so I can give credit. (Morphine! I commandeered your 'sing along' Glinda icon... is it one of yours? Or do you know who made it? If you want me to take it down I will. :).)

Life is... interesting at the moment. I may update a little more on why later on. 
For now, ciao belli. <3
