It's been awhile since I have posted, but I have made a goal to post more this year. (Which considering last year's numbers won't be too hard...) I am also setting up a website! Crazy fun, and pretty simple so far.
I'm gearing up for an audition at the University of WI, Milwaukee for performance and pedagogy. I'm nervous and practicing like crazy. Fingers crossed, but there is no substitute for good old fashioned hard work. While I'm out there, I am going to try to visit a violin shop and get a new appraisal on my instrument. It has been having some major issues and I think I need to consider changing to a new one :( Sad, because I love it however at some point you recognize that open seams every couple of weeks is a really bad sign.
In other news, I have decided to file my own taxes...yikes! I bought the software and I'm attempting to figure it out. We'll see how this turns out. I wish I had enough money to have someone else file them for me, but I just don't this year. If it all goes well, I will be super excited, but if not I will start putting aside money every month this year so I don't have to do them myself next year :)
Another goal I made for the year is finish some of the plethora of sewing/quilting/crafting projects I have started/want to start/already have the materials for. I'll be posting pictures as I get them. The first finished project of the year was a Mystery Quilt that I turned into the new shower curtain for my bathroom!
