new years resolutions

so there are mere minutes left, not only in this year, but in this decade. i have my fair share of new years resolutions...
  1. read a book outside of class every month
  2. have semester 2 bring my gpa up
  3. drink more water
  4. make my room somewhere i want to live
  5. get my driver's license
  6. document my memories more efficiently
...but as i start the second full decade of my life, i have some new decade resolutions as well.
  1. surround myself only with people who will support me
  2. never let a day go by where i don't work towards my dreams of life and career
  3. make friends quickly - without sacrificing the quality of the friendships
  4. if i don't stop procrastinating, at least manage the last-minute things well
  5. never miss a chance to tell people i love them
here's to new beginnings and to new hope and a wonderful start to the new year.

(at least with us freaks.)

i'll spare the gory details because i realize some really just don't want to know, but i've had quite the experience or two with blisters this winter break. since last sunday, i've been almost incapable of playing jazz, so billé('s nuovo metodo per contrabasso) won over in terms of practicing, and has since stolen my heart.

but i tested the waters with some pizz stuff today. needless to say it felt reaaally good.

well, i already failed at blogging every day this month like i was planning on.

but that's okay.

i have just been busy reveling in my love of this month.

december is my birthday month.
it's the month where 16-degree mornings make fleece blankets and a cozy bed so much more enjoyable.
christmas lights are everywhere, and it only takes a little imagination for them to be covered with snow.
a different pair of fuzzy socks are the highlight of my outfit every day.
average of about three rehearsals/shows a week outside of school for me.
but this crazy crazy month has an end in sight - winter break makes it all worth it.
