Hi there, folx. This is my first LJ entry and it comes on the heels of a rather odd year and a half. At the start of this, my great-grandmother(father's mother's mother) passed away. Later my grandfather(father's father) passed away. More recently my grandmother(mother's mother) passed away, and finally, last week my great-grandfather(father's mother's father) passed away. The funeral is on Friday. On the plus side, I performed my end of semester jury, basically a solo performance. You stand in front of some pf the brass faculty and sweat your ass off while you perform two pieces. I got A's from each juror. I'm happy about that. So anyway, hi. I hope i become a worthwhile LJ contributor.
