Fall is my favorite time of year

I can't believe I conformed and actually got one. At the same time, I am excited about having a way for people to know what's going on in my life with less phone calls. (We all know I hate talking on the phone.)

My life is currently wonderful! I've actually decided on a major....Music-Dance-Theater. Now the problem is getting in. The program only accepts 16 students a year. I'm auditioning in January and the date seems to be coming too fast!! This semester I'm back in voice lessons and I LOVE IT!!! It's quite different from my old ones that were classical. I like contemporary singing because it's something I naturally excel at. I belted an E last Friday! I had no clue I could do that! This is just what I'm supposed to do. Now I have to find monologues. Any suggestions for plays would be much appreciated.

This semester has just been great. I feel like an official Cougar now, although I still have never been to a football game. Honestly, I don't care for football and after seeing the snow at the last game, I don't think I'm missing much. This semester I'm finally taking classes I like. My favorite is tap, of course. I don't stand still anymore. I'll be standing in line at the store or talking with a friend and my feet are constantly going. I love it and I'm actually decent at it. I really like them all, though. I sometimes feel swamped, but it's not too bad.

I'm also really excited for the Red Sox. I wish I was in Boston right now. I miss it a lot this time of year. I love fall there. I just watched Hocus Pocus with friends and it reminded me of how I once lived there, I used to see all the fall colors, I played in the leaves and I was surrounded by sox fans! One day I'll go back.

But for now I'm learning, making friends, dating and laughing a whole lot. What more could I ask for?
