Finals Week!

Wow, already finals week is upon us. Luckily I only have 3 pretty easy finals, but I have to be here until Friday! ARRRGGGGGG! I’ve also discovered that music majors have it pretty easy during finals week. I had three playing juries this week: clarinet, saxophone, an piano. The saxophone jury was the worst of the three, but at least I still got a B on it.

I was really happy with my clarinet jury. I think I’m finally overcoming my severe performance anxiety issue. In the past I’ve been known to have really high levels of anxiety, and even hyperventilate during a performance. I’ve been praying a lot about this and God has been faithful in giving me the courage and strength to overcome this obstacle. During my clarinet jury I felt very relaxed and was totally focused on the music. I believe I played at the top of my ability at the moment. This of course means I still have lots of room to improve, but it just felt good to not let nerves or anxiety overcome my mind during a performance.

Well, gotta get ready to watch the UK/Indiana game!
