The Search for Inspiration

I never thought “writer’s block” existed. Those of you who know me know that I always have something to say, always have an opinion about everything. But lately, I have hit a brick wall with this blog–I haven’t been able to come up with anything to say, anything that I thought would be worthwhile enough to share with all of you. It’s lasted about 3 weeks, and has been starting to concern me, becuase I don’t want this blog to come stagnant.

I’m learning that maybe not every post needs to be really meaningful or inspirational, though. A check-in every so often, or a short blurb about what’s going on lately, would suffice. So consider this post under that category!

Classes are going pretty well so far–the semester is incredibly busy, but not as much because of actual classwork. Here are some highlights about what I’ve been occupied with:

  • I’ve began my duties as the President-Elect of Miami’s chapter of FCMENC (for an explanation of what that means, see this post), including preparation for the South Florida Honor Band Festival over Valentine’s Day weekend
  • I’ve started performing with the University of Miami Frost Wind Ensemble (!!) this semester, which includes more rehearsal time and some extra time in preparation and practice
  • The website for the band department at UM, which I’m responsible for overhauling, is very close to launching its new update, so I am working on that in all my spare time; stay tuned for updates here when the site goes live! I’d love all your input!

Other than that, and a new relationship which I’m very happy in ( 🙂 ), life has been fairly normal!

I would, however, like to extend a congratulations to Kenna Delmar, who has successfully stepped into the blogging world, and who, it would appear, is getting good readership of her blog by some universities she is interested in attending for a Music Education degree! Check out her blog here! I’ve also added the link to my “Favorite Links” section.

Starting late this week into early next week, I’ll be updating on Twitter about the Honor Band festival under the hashtag #sfhb09 (for South Florida Honor Band 2009, in case you didn’t catch it). The beginning of next week will be mostly updates about prep-work, while most of the “fun” will start Thursday the 12th of Feburary. Keep updated on the “tweets” about Honor Band here!

Here’s hoping I find more inspiration in my daily life and am able to keep this more updated for everyone! Until next time!
