I sang my junior recital. It was a blast! I was scared stiff for the first five minutes but after that I had so much fun. I made funny faces while I sang, too ;-) My dad is working on editing the video from it and when I get my hands on it I'll post it up here in case anyone's interested. I sang Mozart, Faure, Brahms, and Duke and loved every minute of it!
Then I tried madly to catch up with all the schoolwork I'd gotten behind in while prepping for the recital.
I went to the Memphis zoo over spring break and fed honey to an aardvark. I have the photo to prove it!
And then this past weekend, I did something completely new to me, and dyed my hair.
Yes, it's red now. (And yes, we had a photo shoot in a cemetery. I hope no one thinks that's morbid!) It's a fun colour - inside, under normal lights, it looks dark brown with reddish-purple hues, but outside in the sunlight it's a flaming, slightly unnatural red. It came out just a bit too red, I think, but for a first attempt it's not bad, and I've had mostly positive reactions to it. I've been having fun, actually; after three years at college the most drastic thing I'd ever done to my hair was to hack it from hip-length to chin length, and I think everyone had decided I wasn't the type to dye my hair. So there's been quite a lot of shock. It amuses me.
In other news, the choir is headed off on tour tomorrow. We're going to Washington, DC to sing at the National Cathedral - a huge honour - and we'll be stopping various places along the way. I'm excited; I always love tour, and this should be a good one. Presuming I can find my camera charger before tomorrow afternoon, I'll take lots of photos and try to give you a recap when I get back next week!
(Maybe there was time for a long post, after all! I'm going to go finish my French homework now before I get in trouble.)
