As for piano, listening to my Yundi Li CD in Steph's car on the way to the Boundary Waters inspired me to want to learn his Nocturne in E-flat major, so I'm setting off to do that. I was trying to play scales yesterday, and my fingers are sooo weak. It's ridiculous.
Well I have to walk Heidi soon - she's sitting on my bed staring at me wondering why the hell I haven't taken her out yet. This morning a flea jumped off of her and onto me. So we'll see what happens with that. I'll probably be infected with some crazy disease soon.
Work is going superbly well, I've gotten started on this project that I get to have a pretty good hand in, and I'm really excited about it. I've also been making more of an effort to eat lunch with my coworkers and joke around with them, and I'm like.. actually making friends. They're all great, fun people and I enjoy their company. Three cheers for new friends :o) I really am enjoying work a lot more now that I'm into more training and am working my core job still, and all that. I'm starting to feel that me getting hired is something I want more and more everyday. Hrm.
What else... I went to the USABDA nationals competition last night. Totally daunting and totally inspiring. I don't think I'll ever be quite that good, but if I even got to like.. 3/4 level of the Championship-level dancers I saw in the finals of last night, I'll be pretty pleased with myself :D I'll put some photos up in imagestation when I get the chance. Been practicing a good amount with Ivan lately and I can definitely feel myself improving. We're both really good about being able to feel when something is wrong/right, and we definitely get on each other about it. At the same time, we laugh a lot and chit chat, and I think it's a really good partnership that's starting to develop.
Jack and I talk everyday. A lot. It's almost disgusting. Can't wait to see him in a week :o) Although for some reason he's decided he wants to not cut his hair. I don't understand how this happens to me. Does anyone remember the summer of the hair with Eric? I still crack up when I see those pictures. Admit it, Eric, it was out of control. :D
Anyway, I'm just enjoying the ride at this point. One of my coworkers said to me that the first 2-3 months are one of the most exciting points in a relationship, where you're still figuring each other out, getting on each other's nerves every once in a while, delighting in the new things you're discovering about each other, delighting in being able to figure out how NOT to get on each other's nerves.
Okay, time for me to get started on my day! Sorry for the lax updates; I'll work on it, I swear!
