Also seeing my old art oh man wow this is kind of painful in a way but also endearing. I don't draw/paint as much anymore, but I'm still making art. Just art of the musical variety. I decided to do some more drawing/painting as stress relief for this semester.   :-)

First off, what's up? I don't know if anyone really remembers me since it's been forever but I hope you all are doing well. I am starting my 4th semester of college in like 3 days so I'm super pumped and excited to get back to school. Being a music major is like music nerd heaven for me, I'm surprised I once thought I could do anything else. However, it's also the most stressful thing in my life as well. 

As a music major there are these scary things called juries that occur at the end of each semester. During the semester I am required to take weekly lessons which count as a class, and at the end of the semester I am graded on my scales as well as a technical piece along with some repertoire. This gives me an overall grade for my lessons. Usually, the scales are graded by the private instructor before the jury, and the jury consists of the faculty in my area grading me. 

So as a trumpet player, my trumpet teacher, along with the tuba, trombone/euphonium, and french horn teacher all sit across from me to grade my jury. For woodwinds they have the woodwind faculty, for voice it's the voice faculty, the jazz kids get jazz faculty, etc.

So far I have done 3 juries, but the 4th one is kind of special in a scary way. At the end of the sophomore year every music major takes a Junior Qualifier which will determine if the student can become a junior music major. This is a full 16 minutes vs. the regular 8 minute jury slot, because it requires usually 1 extra piece of music if possible, as well as playing your scales in front of the entire brass faculty.

Scales are pretty scary, ngl. Certain ones, at least. Bb melodic minor is a pain in the ass I swear. 

I HOWEVER AM SO READY BUT NOT READY. Because I am a music education major that has decided to pursue a double major in Music Education and Music Performance, and as a result, I need to make my jury my audition as a performance major. 

SO. I have a lot riding on this semester. My Junior Qualifier plus my audition into the performance program. Along with the fact that the french horn teachers thinks my tone is shit is a lot of stress. HOWEVER, I am willing to put in so much practice time. I can do this. Long tones are all I need. 

I am also very excited for Pokemon Go. Yes.

PikachuGirl11 is a silly name, but I don't think I can change it. Too attached to it.


Geese are still birds of evil(still true) and elevators are creepy okay (still scary).

I'm always hyper, yet I am consistently lazy. (More like talkative and unmotivated)

Okay, my favourite books are fantasy based and I love mysteries too. Romance...depends. (It really does depend. Is it good romance? Then yes.)

With shows I like anime trash.Sports anime and all that.

I aspire to be a professional musician and music educator. I play the trumpet.
