Ok, so the CCU Christmas Celebration Extravaganza is finally OVER, and do you know what I realized during the last 10 minutes of the last performance? How sad it was that this was my last CCU Christmas concert EVER. After 4 years things like this really get to you. You are so used to being in the music arena that you are, that you can’t see exactly how it’s going to be when you get out of school.
Fortunately, I CAN see it and it’s sad. The opportunity to play in an ensemble like I play in now, is very rare once you get out of school. Even if you can get into an orchestra or symphonic group, the relationships aren’t the same. You come , you play, and you leave. It’s all very sad.
But enough sad stuff!!! It DOES feel good to be done with my last major performance of the year. The stress of school work will be enough for the rest of the year.
I slept 11 hours last night… it felt good. I have a lot to do today. I’d better get working.
I might write more later tonight… if you’re lucky. 🙂
Ah… but change is inevitable, and attempts to postpone change usually poison what was so special about our memories. Goodbyes are bittersweet, but their sweetness comes from the fact that those moments are fleeting…
