Back on campus as of yesterday afternoon. Unpacked, settled in, have seen almost everyone I want to see. The main to-do when people have seen me is to comment on my blondeness, which is not what I would have wanted, but I’ll go with it. At least people seem to get a kick out of my hair being colored “banana” and “carmel.”
I will admit I already miss home something fierce. Matt said he’d come up as soon as he could, though I know that doesn’t actually mean “soon.” Sarah said she’d come up near the end of March. Both of us want to visit Philly but are deviod of people who would actually want to go to Philly, so we’re trekking together one Saturday. I have a doctor’s appointment for my malfunctioning thyroid in three weeks so I at least know I’ll be home for a full weekend then.
And now for the title of the post: orchestra tour. I’m impressed that we have a plot, audio-visual equipment, and people who can sort of act. Me? I get to scream, hand out flashlights, and then play with said flashlights for a couple of exceprts. Its… thrilling. But most importantly, the front of our booklet says: EARTH MUSIC MAKES TASTY SNACK FOR ALIEN CREATURE… CONCERT INVASION! More on that when we’ve run through it more than twice.
