The next week is about to be another crazy scramble, and I'm hoping I'll be able to complete all my assignments and still get a decent amount of sleep in. Unlikely, sigh.
Last night I went to my first trivia night.. or rather, tried to. In fact it was a total fail because I got the time wrong originally, and then I got lost. Ever since I've had a data plan on my phone, I've decided I don't really need to look at directions very carefully before leaving. As a result, I get lost here, ALL THE TIME. Or maybe this place is just conducive to getting lost because streets change names at random, and I have no geographical features with which I can orient myself.. just a big mess of trees everywhere. Anyway, I decided that I probably wouldn't be very useful at trivia, on account of my wickedly bad long-term memory. Nonetheless, Charles has decided that I should join him for trivia regularly, and so I shall attempt this in the coming weeks.
This weekend I got somehow looped in to being a driver for our ecology class' field trip. We'll be making our way down to Southport, testing different vegetation types and ecosystems on our way. Should be fun - always nice to get off of campus on an expenses-paid journey through nature :)
Next week I'll have the privilege of seeing the legendary Murray Perahia in concert - one of only 6 US concerts he is playing this season. AND I've got left-side tickets! I am totally, totally psyched for this. It will be a solo recital of the following:
Bach: Partita No. 6 in E minor, BWV 830
Beethoven: Piano Soata No. 30 in E Major, Op. 109
R. Schumann: Kinderszenen
Chopin: Étude No. 1 in A-flat Major, Op. 25 "Aeolian Harp"; Mazurka in A-flat Major, Op. 59, No. 2; Mazurka in C-sharp minor, Op. 50, No. 3; Mazurka in F-sharp minor, Op. 59, No. 3; Scherzo No. 4 in E Major, Op. 54, Ct. 200
I guess Durham is not so bad after all ;)
