Tuesday – Day 225

March 16, 2013

Things this week just got better and better from then on. Though I was pretty tired today and the project still was not out, there was only good to come! Once I made it through Physics and too my singing lesson, I was excited by the new Jazz pieces I was working on, along with figuring out a little more of how to sing in secondo passagio (higher part of my voice). This was also the first week this semester that I self accompanied, and while it wasn’t perfect, it was a start. Misty by Errol Garner and Over the Rainbow from the Wizard of Oz. Great fun!

In the afternoon I had an interview with a certain renowned social networking firm (more on that to come results dependant) that went splendidly. I was interviewed by a really awesome engineer and tackled an interesting problem!

In the evening, I went to hear Dr. Richard Dawkins speak, and while he was interesting, he wasn’t fascinating. The usual barbs directed at theists, along with some interesting biology. Riled up a few people and that was amusing. The Q&A session was awful, mostly full of people saying “but what do you do without god?” to which his answers were both predictable, wry and somewhat amusing.

Rehearsal afterwards ran really late, but we’re singing some fantastic stuff at the moment, Beibl’s Ave Maria and more! If you’re in Pennsylvania come hear us and the Harvard Glee Club at 8:00PM this Saturday night!
