Double Reeds and Pirates

Yes, my friends, he's finally done it, 
Nate's joined the dark side! 
He has officially become a secondary on oboe, 
he's a double reeder. 
I feel as though this involves a parade or something. 
Two double reeds in the family now, 
Double Reed Day at UNCG won't know what hit them!

In other news, look who's in town. 
Corbin has come to visit me alas! 
I've missed this ECU Pirate even though 
I have his twin here with me at UNCG. 
It's not the same without both of them. 
Reunited and it feels so good! 

Musical Mania

I don't really know what's gotten into me lately but I've had a recent surge of musical obsession. I mean I've always loved musicals, but this is getting a little out of hand. Wicked, Phantom, and Les Mis, have been playing in my room nonstop the past week. Not to mention I've watched the 25th Anniversary London Concert of Les Mis 3 times on PBS in the past 5 days. I'm not sure what's going on, maybe I just wish I could walk around singing and dancing throughout my everyday life. Regardless, here's a little peek at the song that has been playing in my head and over my itunes all afternoon.

Weekend Wonders

What do you do with yourself on a weekend in which 
there is hardly any homework to do? 

You go cosmic bowling late at night...

and successfully pull off stunts like this 
without anyone having to go to the hospital. 
(yeah, I'm that good!)

You straightened your friend's extremely curly hair,
and do a rather good job at it too. 

You take extremely awkward pictures, 
extremely late at night. 

You thumbs up and laugh at everything because 
you're past the point of exhaustion by 3 in the morning. 
And then you walk to Walgreens in the freezing cold. 

Then you go see Nate perform at First Presbyterian, 
and take in the glory and beauty of God 
at one of the most gorgeous churches 
of Greensboro, on a sunny Sunday. 
I'm so glad our Symphony and Chorale insist on performing 
in such beautiful locations. 

It's getting warmer my loves! 
What's on your weekend to-do list?


Basketball Season!!

It's March 
and that means two things: 
1.) Albert Einstein and I are rocking our birthday's on Pi Day. 
3.14 Baby! 

Basketball season is among us, friends! 
This is my favorite time of year for many reasons. 
Mostly because it gives me a legitimate excuse to 
scream my lungs out at something, 
and a chance to wear Carolina t-shirts everyday. 
And speaking of Tar Heels, 
how bout them Heels!? 
I understand Duke beat us in the championship game 
and all that jazz, yeah yeah, blah blah. 
But seriously, we beat Duke last week and 
we're the ACC regular season champs. 
Compared to where we were last year and earlier this year, 
I am not complaining at all. Talk about some progress. 
(not to mention the class we have compared to the Duke bench)

I'm extremely proud of my Tar Heels. 
Tar Heel born and Tar Heel bred! 

Speaking of basketball, because I'm a Spartan as much 
as a Tar Heel, let's talk about UNCG Basketball. 
Yes, now that I'm not tied down to the chains of the 
School of Music, I can actually have a life and go to the sports games. 
This means that these precious friends and I headed to the 
coliseum to support our Spartans against Miami...

Well, all except this girl. 
Katie is our walking contradiction. 
Miami fan, pulling for Miami, 
yet wearing a UNCG shirt. 

And there are our teams now... 
yeah, this picture pretty much sums up 
how this game went. 
Miami stomped us. 


However, despite the fact Miami kicked our butts, 
Jon and I continued to exuberantly cheer for our Spartans. 
Let me tell ya, 
who needs anger management 
when you have basketball to yell at? 

A great friendship has bloomed between Katie and I. 
This girl and I have spent many a night in Taco Bell, 
the caf, and random laundry rooms, talking for hours.
Not to mention the adventures we get into are priceless, 
especially if it involves driving.
It's very appropriate to say that, 
"the best things in life are unexpected, 
because there were no expectations." 

After the game we headed to cookout
and hopped into the back of Caitlin's truck 
with milkshakes in hand, 
even though it was 30 degrees outside. 
These are the moments I'll always cherish. 
This is the college is experience everyone should have. 

So friends, who are you all pulling for this basketball season?
