So as many people now know, I am just about ready to graduate. There is one small problem... or rather 10,000+ of them. Kilometers to be exact. (6,000+ miles for non-metric folks :) ) So, in order for me, my wife and the kids to return for the ceremony, I'm asking for some help. We need about $4,500 US by the end of July for the airfare. Any and all help would be greatly welcomed - please message me for details if you would like to help.

But so far, I've done well enough to pass... and even very likely get an A grade.


Graduation plans can begin in earnest now.

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.

today is the day. I alittle over 4 hours time, it will be all over.

And thankfully, unlike the last exam, I don't need a pass to pass the paper. That said, I'm still going to do the best I can.

But it's almost godammed done.


And then,all I can do is wait for the marks.

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

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.


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!
