Update: math actually sucks and I’m glad to be done with it.  I can say “oh I love problem solving and applying things I’ve learned to new situations” till I’m blue in the face but my true feelings are hiding just beneath the surface and make themselves known as soon as I encounter a problem that is ever so mildly more difficult than anything I’ve done before.  [my sister needed help with test corrections and they were hard (I mean I eventually figured it out but only after giving up lol)]
Okay but,,, Lin Manuel Miranda, am I right?
Listen.  That guy has such a talent for writing musical lines that go on top of one another and build with each other and are separate but flow into and out of one another’s orbits and it’s just kind of incredible.  You can switch between listening to each line individually like changing television stations or you can have them all going at once like you’re listening to four different youtube videos simultaneously but they all line up at certain parts.  Like, I remember doing that one song before the Big Fight in West Side Story and thinking that was cool.  Two summers later I heard Non-Stop for the first time and haven’t been the same since.  We Don’t Talk About Bruno?  Incredible.  I’m sure In the Heights had an example of this too but I can’t recall specifics.
What’s interesting is that concert band/orchestral(/chamber choir too, apparently) music does this type of thing all the time, but the tricky part is the addition of words.  In band, different instruments have different voices, sure, but adding words can make things muddy (I have personal experience with this through singing warmup rounds at choir practices last sem ugh).  Miranda’s music is clean.
Anyway I’m gearing up for next semester (yknow, setting up Notion, clearing out Notability, etc), and I have a look at my schedule and come to find out that I’m taking the less favored prof for both biochem 2 and physics 2 which is lovely (I can tell based on who has the most seats left open lol).  Frankly, I chose to stick with the same phys prof because even though he can’t teach I a) don’t want any classes before 11a this sem, b) want as many of my classes as possible to be back to back instead of having a gaping 2-hour hole between them, and c) got an A in his class last sem despite being frustrated and fed up the whole time so it probably will be annoying but at least it’ll be annoying in a way that I expect.  The only reason I’m taking that biochem 2 prof is because the other one conflicts with my anth class.
Speaking of anth,,,,, I’ve been stressing over the past few weeks bc I couldn’t figure out exactly when the right time would be to send the anth prof an email checkup of like “heyyy I know I’m supposed to TA for you,, are we still cool for that?” because I didn’t wanna be too forward but then it got to the point where I’d waited too long to follow up in my opinion and I was also stressing bc I’ve got the whole imposter syndrome thing climbing up my throat again like bile (you know how it is) and it’s been absolutely paralyzing and the first day of his class is this Tuesday and then today he just goes and sends a casual little email today and is all like “excited to have u as a uta :) also meet ur co-uta she’s been working with me for a bit :)” and honestly that made me feel a little bit calmer.  That’s what I’m thankful for today.  That my fears were unfounded (and that, so far, everything seems to be turning out alright), as they so often are.
Last thing: It’s a crazy thing to be involved on campus.  Over the past few days I’ve received emails from almost all of my major orgs about kickoff meetings and jazz and it’s kinda wild.  That said, seeing the email from the orchestra reminded me that there was one primary goal which I did not complete at all: practicing the concert music.  Not once.  I completed the waistcoat and walking skirt (which I took out for their first spin today actually and it was fabulous (if I get some American Duchesses the skirt length will be perfect)), started on another top instead of the mauve one bc I need to figure out sleeve length stuff (might be able to finish it before I go back), finished my mom’s dress, started Ni No Kuni and Shadow of the Colossus pieces, and started working on my summer plans.  So while I didn’t complete everything, I did do quite a bit, and I’m proud of what I was able to accomplish.

I was so happy about getting decent progress done on Drippy that I started Battle II and wowza that was not a fun time.  Listen, I can count in 6/8 just fine.  I enjoy it even.  But apparently arranging in 6/8 is a whole mess.  I just couldn’t break my way through it.  Even the melody was hard to crack.  I guess battle music is just Like That.  So I’ve put it aside.  For now.  And I’ve begun working on World Map instead, just the bones of it really (melody and Important Flourishes), but even in a short amount of time it’s coming together much more coherently.  Key signature sucks though <3 (I mean it’s not terrible for C instruments at 4 sharps but I’d hate to be an Eb instrument).  If I was better at arranging, I’d transpose it to something easier after I finished.  But alas.  This is only my fourth attempted piece (since downloading MuseScore, anyway), so I’m not great at it :)
GAH the vast majority of me wants this pandemic to be over and done with just so we can all go back to living normally and seeing people’s faces and not having to constantly worry about it and stuff but there is that small part of me that enjoys the anonymity that comes with wearing a mask.  I feel so much like a background character in my mask and it’s incredibly relaxing and cozy.
Update: It’s funny how being an artistic person works because only a few hours ago I was in the zone with that arrangement and now I am very much not even near The Zone and I don’t know what’s changed but apparently the song is much harder to get right than I’d originally thought.  Also with sewing-- I’m working on drafting a bunch of interchangeable options for waistcoats because they’re quick to make and I have a basic pattern that fits me pretty darn well after I made alterations and I thought drafting was going swell but It Is Not and that really sucks because I want it to turn out good but I’m frustrated.  Anyway I’ve figured out that I’m going to use the brown fabric I got for a circle skirt (to replace the first circle skirt I made from flannel which is already pilling pretty bad), waistcoat, and possibly a lil newsboy cap for funsies.  I considered making a dress out of it, but I’d get far more use out of some separates.
hhhhh I need to figure out some handsewing/crafting projects for those idle evenings I have at uni.  That’s a problem for tomorrow.
I finished the walking skirt!!  It’s lovely, but perhaps an inch too long for everyday wear.  It doesn’t quite touch the floor but it does get in the way a little.  Otherwise, aside from the bungled waistband length which isn’t even noticeable due to the pleating in the back, it feels pretty amazing to wear.  Hefty but elegant, neatly finished on the interior, just a lovely drape while holding its shape.
Last thing: I’ve been watching a lot of stuff!!  First off, since I’ve been in a sewing frenzy, I’ve been watching Absolute History videos/series and they’re fantastic.  I’m especially loving the late Victorian/Edwardian content.  I watched Spiderman No Way Home and that was great too.  Watched Eternals and it was actually better than I’d anticipated (though still on the weaker side for Marvel movies).  I’m actually... considering... reading fanfic for that series because I felt like I didn’t get as much substance from the movie as I would’ve liked.  Also,,, them teasing Harry Styles as a character in the next movie... idk.  I’m pretty neutral toward Styles in general I guess, but the idea of it doesn’t spark joy.  In other news, I’ve been gobbling up the DC Animated Universe movies like nobody’s business bc they’re all like an hour and fifteen minutes long and I can zip through them like candy.  Generally, they’re just okay.  Fun and simple to watch.  And I’m a simple girl.  Give me a superpowered protagonist (or five) with a complicated secret identity and I will froth at the mouth.  As far as highlights go, I will say that Batman: Soul of the Dragon has a really awesome and interesting soundtrack.  The Injustice movie was good all the way up until the end which was really underwhelming.  Really makes me wanna read the comic series though.  Finally, Spirited Away was an interesting movie as well.  I don’t think Studio Ghibli is going to be huge for me, exactly, but I’ve enjoyed the films so far.  They’re just so... different.  Fantastical.
Today I’m thankful that I’m good enough at math to be able to help my sister while I’ve been at home.  She’s kinda stressin over school right now, but my notes (from five years ago!!) are good enough for me give myself a refresher and help her (yes yes yes I’ve shared them with her before, but she says they don’t help her (which, like, is valid bc I had a fairly strong background in a pretty critical class in the pre-calc sequence, but she took that class online bc covid and isn’t nearly as comfortable with those skills)).  Makes me feel useful.
