On the First Day of…School??

Well, the dreaded first day of the new semester is over. Hallelujah! I’m going to have to admit that from the outset this looks like one of the most challenging semesters I’ve ever embarked on. I’m taking 18 credit hours, working close to 10 hours a week, practicing 2 instruments, and singing in the Opera Chorus.  I’m going to die. And if by some miracle I live to see the close of this semester and 2 more, I will be given a piece of paper saying I’ve graduated. Sometimes I wonder if it’s worth it. But then I think about the future, I dream of  being a part of the glorious world of music and opera, and I know it’s worth it in the end. And, you know, the journey, while hard at times, is totally worth it all. 🙂
