So this entire time I thought you were in New York…..also I support you in whatever you do!

Hahaha nope! Although I did just visit there because my grandparents live there. I go to a state school about an hour away from Chicago.

We had our first New Music Ensemble rehearsal of the year today- Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians. 

I can already tell this is going to be a life-changing semester. I’ve felt lost for such a long time with the cello. I’ve been struggling for motivation, inspiration, anything…and I feel like I’m getting that back. I want to spend hours with this piece- listening to it, analyzing it, practicing it. I haven’t felt that way in a very long time.

I think next winter I’m going to apply for the UCSD Master’s Program- they have a performance emphasis and a very, very strong contemporary music program. But that would mean leaving Chicago. Leaving everyone I know and love here, and moving across the country.

I have a while to decide, but I’m scared.

The thing about plus sizes is that they don’t run like straight sizes. They go XL, 1X, 2X, 3X, etc. XL is both the top of the straight sizes (S, M, L, XL) and the bottom of the plus sizes. So you’re right between! I have an XL jacket from forever 21 straight sizes that fits me perfectly though so idk how they even size stuff

Current mood: seething. Also Facebook ranting. Also beyond pissed off because this literally means I DONT GET TO WORKOUT AT ALL TODAY BECAUSE ITS A 20 MINUTE WALK TO THE GYM.

Just got the leggings and tshirts I ordered from forever 21 and they fit perfectlyyyyyy. So good to have some fall/winter basics again.

A note on sizing: I usually wear a 16/1x but for both the leggings and tshirts I ordered a 2x from forever 21 plus. I know now that the 1x would’ve been too small- their stuff runs small.

Do not touch your body with bad intentions. Rub your belly when it is full. Stroke your soft skin. Hug yourself, even if it’s silly, because it feels nice. Pleasure yourself. Do not touch your body with bad intentions. Do not pinch at the fat on your stomach. Do not scratch at your skin. Do not hate the shell you’re encased in.

Waiting until after my 8am class to have coffee= exhausting BUT worth the wait to just be able to sit down, relax and enjoy a cup of coffee without grabbing it on the go.
Is it tomorrow at 1 yet? I’m going away with B and his family for the whole weekend and I CANNOT WAIT. Gotta throw some stuff into a bag for the weekend though- I’m going to be gone friday afternoon through monday night. That’s a lot of time to spend with your S.O.’s family…but it’ll be okay.
Just gonna drink my coffee and then go do music school things i.e. an all school convocation and my first rehearsal for Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians!!
Have a good Thursday all.

I look like a cute little boy today and I love it

I’m bad at taking selfies today apparently but I’m in a really good mood so here are 5 happy things:

1) I have a paid tutoring position with the university to tutor freshmen and sophomores in music theory and aural skills and I’m so excited to get to help them out.

2) We’re playing so much incredible music in New Music Ensemble and I’m starting to think that that may actually be a *thing* I want to pursue seriously and it makes me so happy because I’ve been so lost with cello lately.

3) I get to see B EVERY DAY NOW and it’s so, so wonderful

4) B and I are leaving school at 1 on Friday and spending the entire weekend (including Monday, because we’re off school) at this lakeside hotel with his family because his aunt is getting married on Saturday :D

5) I’m about to head over to chill with my two best friends and watch Titanic and face mask and paint our nails because school hasn’t gotten too crazy yet

Sociology of gender textbook: Let's look at how sex characteristics don't fall into a strict binary (the same way gender doesn't). Everything needs to be examined through an intersectional lens. We're making sure to include trans and intersex identities in our discussion right off the bat.
Sociology of gender course: I promise you feminism isn't actually a bad word. Sometimes men and women are told different things by society.
