{Current go-to scarf for spring}

Due to my excessive boredom ( I’m currently writing an article for journalism) and lack of anything interesting happening in my life recently, I decided to make a list of the following few things I’m looking forward to this week (this will also help me stay on track and remember what needs to be done). Oh, and so that you don’t die of boredom too, I’ll throw in a few visuals (aka: pictures).

  • Concert Thursday night: Our symphony orchestra will be performing with our chorus  (it’s an Opera-themed concert). Oh, and two Chicago Symphony Orchestra soloists will be there to sing La Traviata, accompanied by us!
  • Contact UofT: I somehow managed to get into the music program at Canada’s top University (regardless of whether or not that’s a mistake, I’m a happy camper). Shortly after the music letter, I found that I had made it to the school too. Well, I must schedule a tour with them to see whether or not I will attend. (For those of you keeping up with my college searches, McGill still hasn’t gotten back to me.)
  • Composers forum: My teacher suggested I attend this Saturday. Not sure where it is yet (guessing Northwestern?) but sounds interesting nonetheless.
  • Flute Lesson: 1.5 hours of mental abuse, and exhausting exercises. Most productive minutes of my week!
  • Fundraiser: Friday night with daddy’s work. Who could say no to dressing up for a silent auction?
  • Flute Practice/Composing: Pretty self explanatory. Usually consumes about 3 hours of my day.

hmmm… I just noticed everything on this list starts with either a C or an F. Hopefully it’s not foreshadowing what I got on the two tests I took today :).

Wished for the Weekend

Usually by the time Thursday hits I’ve been ready for the week to be long over. This week I don’t even have to hope, thanks to good Friday, I’m kooking forward to a long weekend of sleeping in, watching How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, sipping hot teas, and enjoying late lunch with close friends. Before my next class I thought I’d share a picture I’m rather fond of with you.

With the spring holiday (unfortunately) over and the two busiest days of my week long gone, I can finally sit back, relax, enjoy a chocolate croissant, and blog about a few things happening in my life. I spent my entire last week in downtown Chicago with my sister and many friends. The week consisted of morning coffees, many train rides, meeting new friends, a trip to the Cultural Center, a Gym Class Heroes concert, music practice, bubble baths, Jim Gaffigan, composing, and good movies. Upon arrival back home on  Monday, I had to get up extra early for school, teach, and rehearse for our concert with Norwegian guests. Yesterday consisted of a long, busy day of school, dinner with many friends, and a late night review session. Thankfully today I only have school and a flute lesson later tonight. I’ll definitely be posting again soon :)!

I thought I’d spend a few minutes before heading to the library to express my deepest love for the Harry Potter series. I’m the kind of Potterhead who has at least 3 copies of each book, has read and listened to them countless of times, cried at all the midnight book and movie premiers, celebrates Harry’s birthday each year, is convinced my letter to Hogwarts will one day come, and will collect any Harry Potter good I set eyes on. I’m more than psyched for the next Harry Potter good I can feast on, Pottermore (opening for everyone early this April) and the Harry Potter Encyclopedia. Sigh… just thinking of it makes me swoon. Well, now I must be off to work on a few assignments before the much anticipated spring holiday. I’ll definately be listening to Jim Dale read the beauty of JK Rowling’s works the entire time.

I’ve grown pretty fond of staring down fashion editorials after I finish exams. Its a great way to kill time before the next class and at the same time provide a lot of fashion inspiration. Here are a few spring favorites I thought I’d share.

It’s amazing how much everyone’s attitude changes with the warming weather. It seems that every day, as the temperature continues to increase positively, so does everyone’s mood. It’s nice to see people who are usually cold as the winter wind brighten up with a bit of spring sun.

This past week has been cheery for me as well. With the help of floral dresses, ice cold lemonade, sweet nutella cake mugs, and peanut butter banana chocolate chip muffins, it’s hard to let even the overload of homework before the spring holiday bring me down.

With the weather quickly climbing up past “spring transition” its easy to see why everyone’s mood has been so warm recently. I’ve noticed the long hours of yellow sun, smell of fresh morning dew, and singing birds have brightened everyone’s days. Since the beginning of the week, I’ve spent a significant amount of my time enjoying the brilliant weather outside by feeding ducks, going on midday strolls, and sitting on my roof. With the promise of (at least) mid 60s for the following ten days, a symphony performance tonight, and perhaps meeting with a few people this weekend, its hard to imagine how these next few days could bring anything but bliss.
