Tonight was the Flower concert for the Nova Vocal Ensemble. As usual it was a small turnout, but I had a significant number of friends present. I was nestled between two operative sopranos so I really couldn't hear myself, at all. I never enjoy concerts that way because I can't feel the blending and moving of the music. I don't feel like we're one entity like a choir should be. I always find myself missing the days of Ms. Boley's vocal ensemble.
It has been really weird reading through old journals. It's been refreshing too, and a good reminder that while things change more stays the same. Life just keeps going.
Tonight we're going to watch the last episode of season 4 of Game of Thrones. Tomorrow I go back to Oak Crest. I need to actually run a test with the DNPH cartridges before the field study. At some point I will right a few posts that copy over what I've written in other places about the last 7 years. I've been through some interesting things.
I guess the important points are as follows:
I've been with James Bellows for almost 7 years (it will be 7 on september 3rd)
I went back to school in 2009 and have changed my degree 3 times. I started with Computer Science, switched to Physics, then discovered I should really be doing Chemistry. I love it. I'm having more fun with learning than I ever have before. This fall I'm transferring to Cal State LA for chemistry, though I've been kind of wondering if maybe I should have gone to Cal Poly Pomona instead. Perhaps I will go to Cal Poly for graduate school, which seems more and more like it should happen. I am also an intern at Oak Crest Institute of Science as of the beginning of this year. I love it. I am making my own friends, and the atmosphere is highly conducive to learning. I've never felt more at home anywhere except maybe theater or choir, which says something. In fact, I generally have more in common with the people I work with than I ever had with other theater people.
It's kind of funny going back to LJ after YEARS of trolling facebook... It's much more personal and introspective. Facebook is far more interpersonal.
