I'VE PASSED ONE OF MY PAPERS!!!!!

Ok, so I've only got 80% of the marks back, but what I have got back is enough to pass with a C... with the possibility of going to a B+

*fingers crossed.*

One down - three to go.

It.

Is.

Done.

4/4 assignments completed.

Just the practicals to focus on now.

And so the saga continues. Turns out that there has been a hiccough with some documents... and I'm working to get that sorted out. I'm confident that it can all be resolved however :)

Uniisgoing well... There are three assignments that will be starting soon and I'm feeling confident.I've got 2 classes back to back. One encourages you to remove all precepts and listening mentalities of the 20th/21st centuries... then I go and study the musics of Post World War II

*ROFLMAO*

I've decided an interesting way of making sure I record my notes.

Put them up here.

If anyone is wanting to read them, let me know and I'll get a filter made that includes you.
kiwifruitbat: (conducting)
Well, I have finished Day 2 at Uni... and my brain has reaches sizzle point.

The two history classes will be a slog to get through... I'm loving performance practice...

But it's Conducting that has me very worried and nervous. I mean, there are elements here that I'm not even remotely sure how I will cope, but the paper is purely practical.

No written assessments.

In short, I need to get confidence and (if possible) experience. And I've found a way as of today as to how. I popped into Auckland Grammar (my old school) to see if I could a/ sit in & observe and b/ conduct if possible. Well, the bloke I spoke to had no problems with A, but he and the HoD were iffy about B. Then the first bloke offered a godsend - the chance to conduct a piece for the Auckland Wind Orchestra.

GLEEP!

I mean - this is what I need, but this will be a concert performance of people I've played with before!

Oh well, you have to start the big time some time. And the might let me take some of the rehersals for Auckland Grammar as well. If I can get experience for both, this will REALLY come in handy later on!

So damn the nerves... FULL SPEED AHEAD!

Edit - musical detail corrected
kiwifruitbat: (Awesome)
Yuppers!

I'm going to be moving from my parents place in Pukekohe to George St in the city. Several advantages here.
1/ closer to uni, I can save on travel costs by walking.
2/ sets me closer to work so getting to travel is easier.

Of course, I lose the use of Mum's car and have to start paying rent, but I'd have been paying that in petrol fees. the expenses added on hopefully will be covered by the student allowance.

So - all systems seem to be go!
