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...
