For all two of you following this blog, I didn’t get the position. I was very disappointed and have sluffed off on the ol’ practicing wagon a bit as a result. I’ve also been working and had lots of rehearsals so I would prefer to fault those commitments rather than my own attitude for the drop in time spent purely practicing. Yeah…
Anyway, my reeds all stink right now, I have a lesson tomorrow, and I am exhausted from this day. I have things other than wallowing in self-pity that I should be accomplishing.
Besides, that was last week. This week, I start taking steps towards NOT shooting myself in the foot in audition/high-stress situations.
