So, it feels like life is going with an incredible speed of 1000 miles an hour, and so much is going on at all times. But a busy life is a good life! Ended up with the greatest class ever (aren't we charming in wetsuits?), and have been having way too much fun at school. And we were of course natural talents on wind surfing on our athletics day. And americans, let me tell you - the ocean is not at all as cold as you think! And about 60° with a wetsuit is not too bad at all!

Today, I'm staying home sick, the only thing I can think about now is watching "The Holiday" and drink hot cocoa.

"Are we going to compare Beethoven with Lady Gaga?"

Yet another totally packed day, like all the others! PE in the morning where we were tested on how fast we could run 2 miles, and suprisingly my last month (year) of being a couch potato has not affected my cardio at all as much as I expected. But after that me and a few of my classmates had a two hour lunch and then English class where we thoroughly read some Shakespeare.

Then I met up with some old friends (a few whom I haven't seen for over two years) to just reunite over a coffee to catch up. So much fun, it feels like just yesterday we walked around in the school, listening to the stupidest music and just worrying over stuff totally not worth worrying over...

Finally, it was a good rehearsal as a preparation for this weekend. I'm playing with a youth symphonic orchestra, and this weekend is our last intensive weekend, and then we're touring in the beginning of next week. The program is totally around Beethoven, and the whole concert is built up around a script, which is read by me and three others. So we are practically acting out and telling the story of Beethoven, while the orchestra plays different pieces in between. But it is a very different experience from being on stage as a musical artist, and the director here told me to NOT be as acting out as I am now, and try a different approach.

Now it's time to pack for this weekend, bringing my Physics book of course, and just be happy that I just got my permission to start practice driving!

Life is up and running! And my dear old school doesn't seem to have ever heard of "easy start". Straight on with biology excursion last week and physics test next week. And a whole lot of other assignments in between... But, don't fright, I'm alive and well! With an amazing class at school, full flourish in my music life, a whole lot of dancing and an extreme lack of cafe visits from last year to make up - I seem to find a pretty good way to spend my time.

This weekend it was time for my grandparent's 50th anniversary, which we celebrated by me and my brothers putting together a "love-themed" concert. A nice mix of serious and totally corny, going through some Grieg, Franck, Rachmaninoff and ending with a duet - "Can you feel the love tonight". Except we had different lyrics to make it even more cheesy!
