- Kansas City was a blast. We did not get to the art museum, but no matter. We saw Murray Perahia and he blew our minds. I sent an extremely long email to Hannah about the concert, but I will spare you the music-geekiness. Suffice it to say that I have never before been so inspired as a musician as I was that night.

- No, I haven't heard anything from the grad schools yet. Applications in and auditions complete for UT and Belmont University (in Nashville). I've nothing left to do but to wait.

- I am so excited that Spring is here! I've been cleaning and redecorating my house, and that makes me a happy camper. Now I am ready for some visitors. Who wants to be my house guest?

- Tonight is very important, because tonight is the LOST episode where we finally find out how John Locke became paralyzed. I think he's the one who is going to get killed off this year. Given his erratic behavior of late and that the writers are apparently wrapping up his back-story tonight, he seems a good choice for elimination. Besides, I think they've been far too insistent about Charlie's impending doom for it to actually be him. Thoughts?

- I have had "Lullaby" by The Dixie Chicks stuck in my head all morning. It could be worse.

Oh, the accomplishment:

* A week of homework done far ahead of time.
* A letter and emails written.
* Several home-cooked meals and a clean house.
* An LJ mini makeover and a new icon.
* New projects planned and waiting for commencement.
* French settling in my brain and spilling in unlikely situations.

Mais oui! Industry cures stress, lingering ennui (a delightful word borrowed from the Frogs), and a smelly house. Sweetness conquers, assisted by slow approaching, subtle autumn. Poetry demands an audience, but French is all that's too be had. A rich substitute, for it is a language pregnant with poetry.

La vie est délicieuse, et moi-- je suis contenu.

* I'm home on Christmas Break. Woohoooo!!

* I saw and loved RotK. Nice finale, PJ.

* I went Christmas shopping today-- leisurely-- for the first time in forever. How nice that feels.

* I have realized that Christmas is-- gasp-- only five days away. One loses all contact with time in college.

* Realization made at Pier 1 Imports: Some day I am going to get to decorate my own home just the way I want, and I can't wait.

* Christmas is almost here!! Yes, I already said that.

* "Finale" up there doesn't look like it's spelled right, but it is.

* That's it. Back to real life. :)

The semester is over, finals are ahead, home and Christmas are ahead, and behind are all the things I meant to do this semester. And there are so many.

People tell me that life only gets busier after college. Well, if that is true, I don't know how I'm going to survive. The most I've been able to keep up with these past few months is my schoolwork, plus a few odd-and-ends here and there. My friends can tell you how I've neglected them. The little projects that I thought I'd easily be able to accomplish sit gathering dust under my bed. But I'm getting A's, so that's good, right?

Last year I spent a lot of time thinking about what my attitude toward my schoolwork should be. Should it be the number one priority right now, or are other things in life more important? Should I do just enough to get by in school, or should I pour my all into it? I finally decided that since school is what God has called me to right now, I should pour all my energy into it. Boy, is it sucking my time away.

I'd love to find a way to give 100% in school and keep up with everything else in my life. I want to have time to write long letters, keep up with my online and "real life" journals, spend time with friends, spend time listening to music, watching movies, getting my body back in shape, reading something other than a textbook, writing again. "If only there were more hours in the day" is the cop-out response... surely there are enough. Enough to do everything well and get a good night's sleep at the end of it.

Next semester will be busier than this one was. But I have Christmas Break before me, and maybe during that vacation I will figure out how to salvage a few extra hours each day in which to do the things I really want to do.

I'm here, I'm happy, my second week of school is half-over, and the semester looks to be under-whelming, which is a beautiful thing.

...just in case you wondered...

I just looked at my LJ calendar to see if I posted anything one year ago today, and sure enough, there was a one-sentence post. It was nice to be able to remember where I was a year ago, what I was thinking and feeling, and how far I have come since then. It helps to put my life into perspective.

I posted much more often then. Of course, I was between jobs, graduated from high school and not yet embarked on this wild ride called "college," and all of my friends were accessible only through the internet. So, naturally, I spent quite a bit of time online, and that led to frequent LJing. Things are so different now (and in many ways much more hectic)... but I do wish that more often I would take a little time to update this journal, if only for the purpose of reminding myself, some many days hence, how I have since grown. It would be nice.

Life is truly lovely right now. Finals are coming, but they look manageable, and life between classes is simply delicious. So much so that sometimes I find myself half-considering quitting school and living the whole of my life in those betweens. But fortunately I never let myself think too hard about this. :)

Well... I was going to write something else, but my sleepy brain is not allowing me to remember what it was. My objective is reached, though: I have written a somewhat meaningful entry. And so I am happy, and will head to bed.

Good night. :)
