My iTunes: Mozart's Don Giovanni

This is another image from the recent photoshoot. It's not one I would submit for the audition because it's not done in the style of a professional musical portrait, but I do like it.

I have an ungodly amount of work to do in the next week. Today's to-do-list: write that paper of Duong Thu Huong's Paradise of the Blind, outline the paper on Don Giovanni, write responses to four different compositions by contemporary American composers, have a conference with a professor, put together a proposal for another conference, beg for mercy from my one professor to modify an assignment.... Most of it I don't mind, it's just the one monster assignment that I don't think I'll be able to do because of how much time I missed due to surgery.

Last night I accidentally stayed up until 3:00 a.m. "How does that happen?" you ask? No, I was not out with friends, watching movies, or listening to music. I was reading 14 books for my paper on Mozart's Don Giovanni and wishing that the 5-7 page paper could be 50-70 pages and that I could just take a whole class in Mozart's operas. I was having so much fun, I didn't realize how late it was. Yes, you can say it. I'm a big nerd. But in my defense, with the exception of working on that paper, I just want to look through the pictures from the photoshoot and to practice the pieces for my audition!

But now it's time to start chipping away at that list...

What a difference color makes. Don't ask me to try to pick what I like better. Both images you've posted so far have so much character. In this one, the upward glance and smile show a side of hopefullness. Perhaps dreaming of things to come. Perhaps the completion of your first cd? Maybe the "style of a professional musical portrait" can be broken. This is good.

Reading your to do list exhausts me. I don't know how you do it. I KNOW I didn't work that hard in college. I love your enthusiasm you bring to your work. Wishing a 5-7 page paper could be a 50-70 page paper is outside of my realm of comprehension! I enjoy writing but it has always been a painful process for me. 70 pages sounds like torture to me. Ha ha.

How cute is that to see your brother's comment and his chosen screen name! Sounds like he's your biggest fan. :)
