Conclusions I have come to:
I am under this morbid curtain that by dropping my music major, I will no longer have "the in" at the School of Music. But I have failed to realize that I will still be taking music courses. I will still go to the FAB a few times a week. I will still sing in McKee on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. And maybe more. I will still get to take great courses like Music History--emphasizing the good of my world in every aspect! Writing, history, hilarity.
I will NOT be on the outskirts. At least not for where I am now. Fist pump!
Also, by doing a J degree (as my stepdad so fondly calls it), I will be more apt to helping out society and communities around me than with music.
I was so worried this week about not being able to do Summer Choir because of a possible job conflict. I mean, who would hire me: "I can work for three hours between this time and this time..." Followed by a plethora of scowls, I'm sure.
So I asked my boss at Tiger Calling Club if I could (for the 2-5 shift AAAALmost oh-so-perfect) if I could work through my 15 minute break and leave early so I could get to Summer Choir on time. And he responded with a casual, "Yes."
God has totally provided!
Another--Chris Nelson from the Omaha World Herald gave me the opportunity to do some out-of-state stories this summer! Wunderbar.
Life is on the better side of okay when I focus on schoolwork and God. I'm still in a lull but getting closer to finishing/starting my paper and closer to the summer is slowly bringing me out of it. Thank God for that.
