My masters recital was on Halloween. It went very well. I premiered my string quartet, which I feel is the largest work so far. I’m so glad that I’ve finally done with this phase and moving on to applying for schools and writing my thesis. This past month has been horrendously busy, and i’m looking forward to getting some sleep, working out, and taking time for myself. I think had 4 occasions last month were i was up over 24 hours.

I’ve renewed my vision on leaving Baton Rouge and moving with my life, getting into a doctoral program and getting better at everything. I’ve learned several things about myself in the past couple weeks- things that have changed since I’ve been here. I think since I’m looking forward to leaving, I’m becoming more independent. It’s time to think about myself for a while.
