  1. It's nice to hear from you again Kenzie, long time no see. What certifications are you working towards?
  2. It's been a long time, and we are all older and moving forward with our education, careers, and lives. Feel free to say as much or as little as you want, just want to see how everybody is doing these days.
  3. And, looking back again, so much has happened since January 2019 (when my comment was posted).
  4. It's been good. Last week I spent some time setting up a plan of all the courses that I'm going to take over the next three years. It looks like a pretty full load of classes, so I'll definitely have to grind these next few semesters, but luckily I've gotten pretty used to being busy after taking 18 credits this last semester.

    Welcome to the club!
  6. Hello friends. How is everyone doing these days?

  7. With serious stuff, I've been doing a lot of school work as of late to hopefully finish the semester strong and strive for that 4.0. I've also changed majors from music education to economics and math, of which I will begin taking some courses this summer, so that has been on my mind a lot during this last month or so. With recreational things, I played a round of golf in March, which would seem to be a fairly safe activity during this pandemic as it requires everyone to be outside, several feet apart from each other (especially since I never use a golf cart when I play). Shortly after th
  8. My goals for this year: Straight A's to get my transcripts off to a good start. To perform well in my upcoming ensemble auditions later this month. To come up with a reasonable daily/weekly routine this school year in order to properly balance academic, personal, and professional activities.

    Blue Note Records

    For those looking to explore jazz music more in depth, I recommend looking through some of the records on this Blue Note Discography. I am just beginning to explore all of these, and I am amazed how many great records came out of Blue Note during this era. I would recommend starting off with the 1500 series, as these featured some of the great bop artists of the 1950s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Note_Records_discography

  21. I don't have any streaks at the moment. The highest I've ever gotten recently was like 15 or 20. I'm not a huge Snapchat user.

    Summer

    As we approach May, many of us finish our academic years and other activities and enter into summer. What are your plans for this summer? What do you hope to accomplish? For me, most of my summer will be spent working full-time, playing my trumpet in preparation for next school year, marching band (which will start up in August), and moving into the housing facilities at the college I will be attending. My main goal is to get my trumpet chops in good shape so I will have adequate endurance for marching band and so I am prepared for other auditions, and to become more familiar with
  23. Good day everyone. I hope all is well with studying, exams, projects, and the like! Let's get this 🍞.
