Christmas break is going splendidly. I've had lots of time to read and do fun stuff with the family, and all of the Christmas celebrations have been utterly fantastic. :)
I got my orchestra music for this semester in the mail last week, so I'm keeping busy with that. I'm not totally psyched about the chosen piece, so if you could be in prayer for me about that, it would be SO appreciated. I like to enjoy playing what I'm playing, and I think I can warm up to it eventually, but it's just not my cup of tea really. Besides that, I'm getting nervous about chair auditions. (...already, and they're still about a month away--Oh, dear...) I want to get into the next level of orchestra (Youth Symphony) this next year with everything in me--If I don't get in, I think I'll melt. lol. :P I guess all I can do to get there is play like crazy, build the passion, and pray without ceasing. Isn't it cool how passion has a synergy like that? If I can just channel the passion I feel in my heart for Christ, then my violin has so much more personal meaning--and a lot fewer nerves attached to it.
Sorry for the random post--just wanted to let you all know what's been going on. :)
I'll try to visit you all here pretty soon! I've been really bad about being "on the ball" with my computer stuff since break started. But I should get better about that soon. :)
