I wasn't excited to start my second conducting class yesterday. I didn't really want to go.

But I am SO happy that I did.

I have THE BEST professor ever. The way he talks about music and conducting, his philosophies and styles, they I am SO excited about this semester, I just know I am going to learn so much, I'm already so inspired. And the British accent doesn't hurt things either. My professor has been in America for about a week, mine was the first class he's ever taught here. He was based in London, and has been conducting all over Europe. And he's my new conducting teacher! I am beyond thrilled, I couldn't wait to get off the trolley and into my car so I could call my Papa and tell him all about it, I was SO excited! This guy, well, he GETS it. In a way that no other professor has ever gotten it before. I'm so thankful I decided to take this class, I think it's going to turn out to be a legendary decision. :)

I'm off in less than an hour. The bf and I are driving up to my parent's house for the weekend. I'm planning to help my mom get through my old bedroom so that we can finally make it into a guest room. The bf is planning to add the few necessary extra bolts and such to the patio to get final approval from the city before we can add the roofing tiles. My dad has baseball tryouts most of tomorrow, but I'll still get to spend some good time with him this weekend. I'm really looking forward to curling up on the couch with my mom to watch a movie or two sometime over the weekend.

I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
