Little Happenings

Hey guys!

A week from today I will be home in Pennsylvania for a couple days at Thanksgiving! So excited to be with my friends and family. The day I get back we go straight into juries, Christmas concerts and finals...eek. So far this semester has a little better than the last...there's three classes my grades will not be stellar in..one I am worried about not passing (theory 3 again of course), so that's really discouraging but there is some hope left so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE pray I pass Theory 3. I need to move on and I've worked so hard.

I thought I'd post some pics of the fun things I have been involved in these past few weeks. :)

I am loving getting to wear my vast collection of scarves all the time..
And have been trying to get in the habit of wearing red lipstick more often. I know the lighting makes it look pink, but it's actually a very bright cheery red. It really brightens up my face and just makes everything a little more fun!

My goodwill Pooh sweater because I mean come on..it's Pooh! 

Last weekend I went to Rembrandt's with my bestie Millie. I had an incredible tiramasu and cafe mocha. I LOVE REMBRANDT'S. If you are ever in Chattanooga make time to go. It's my most favorite coffee place ever. 



And finally..I saw this today and about died. I love music humor!






Tomorrow I get officially initiated into SAI which I am so excited about! Expect a post on that to come soon. I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving! As I was posting this, I realized how many things I have to be thankful for! 

What are you thankful for?

5 Favorites.

I'm bored and avoiding piano practice so this is happening right now.

1.  Deon being the sneaky twit he is took creeper shots of me in class yesterday. We had a conducting recording day and I had to conduct Agnus Dei. He captioned it: "My little future conductor getting into the Agnus Dei."

It wasn't my best recording ever, but I still love every second of it.


2. I got the Iphone 5s upgrade this week, because my 4s screen basically shattered two weeks ago. It was the most ratchet thing you have ever seen I had it TAPED together. So ghetto. I'm loving how light the 5s is...and it's got slo mo video and a better camera as you can see. :) 

Showing off my galaxy tee that I love. 

3. Sigma Alpha Iota 

As some of you know, I am a MIT for SAI and I just took the national exam this week. My sisters helped so much and were very encouraging to me and the other two girls who were pledging. We all passed with flying colors and all that's left is our initiation ceremony on the 21st! Then next semester I become an active member and get to attend meetings, have positions, and help with all the events and wear my letters! 


4. THANKSGIVING!!!

I am extremely blessed that I get to go home for Thanksgiving this year as well as Christmas. I'm looking forward to having my mom's dinner, and catch up with friends and family even if it is only for a few days. 

5. And finally, I AM GOING TO AUSTRIA AND GERMANY FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS MAY!!!!! 

At Lee, you are required to do at least one cross cultural trip before you graduate which I think is awesome. I'm taking a May music history course and then for about a week and a half we will travel to Germany, Austria, and maybe even get one day in Paris! What makes this even more wonderful is my grandparents want to pay for the trip. I don't have to worry about a thing! They are so good to me. 


Also an extra tidbit of news: PA/NJ friends and fam get ready! Deon is coming to see me over New Years! My grandma wanted to pay for his ticket as a gift to me for Christmas, so he will come and stay for about a week! I can't wait to show him where I grew up and have him get to know my family better and meet Jenna and the ponies and oh, it's just going to be wonderful! 


Now if I can pass all my classes....your prayers are coveted!
