I'm pretty much overwhelmed with school. There was a hysterically complicated personal-governmental situation that came up just in time to ruin Thanksgiving weekend and the ensuing days. Between that and a week of being sick, not much progress has been made of late. I'm starting to wonder if it's physically possible to finish everything in time. I can't understand how two grad classes can be so much more work than five undergrad classes. Music class is as awesome as ever; the homework I have been neglecting. Class is great because we'll be looking at my works next week; we looked at two of them briefly a few weeks ago, and after listening to my choral piece he gave me Arvo Pärt's Berliner Messe to mull over. Now I'm to write a Kyrie, but all I can think about is Pärt's Kyrie (which is devastatingly beautiful). I could do without all of this at the moment, though; with two music exams coming up in December there is by far enough to concentrate on with just Orchestration and Baroque. I need to go write 4 papers and prepare a presentation by November 5 now. And start writing a Mass.

Mercy, can one person do all that? Oh, I know, just become three people. That'll solve all your deadline problems.

Yes, I took just one grad class and had to skip one day of work a week plus working on it every weeknight and all weekend. I think that was the semester I cried pretty much constantly.

I dearly love your copyright statement on your drawings page. It's quite.

Quite, quite. Things like this are starting to bother me a lot. Just bookmark the image. [cheerfulness]You stupid moron![/cheerfulness] I have devised a signature system that I might attach to all my existing drawings :( What a pain!

Also, I'm grieved that nobody bothered to tell me that drawings look like crap on the main page. While this computer is awesome and makes everything look beautiful, I really have no sense of what everybody else sees. Now I need to redo the drawings pages again.
