    I took a brief respite from smoking these past few days. This is my last full semester toward finishing my degree (voice performance) with my senior recital being just over two weeks out now. Today was the BIG test - recital jury. Basically, I needed to have everything prepared (95% from memory) for a recital pre-screening by the voice faculty. Only once have I messed up my voice from smoking and it was YEARS ago, but I didn't want to chance it.

    Thankfully perfection is not expected at this point as I have a few more weeks to fine tune everything. That said, on the whole I felt it went incredibly well, and I did indeed pass! Many spots can use finessing, and I found a few stumbling blocks I wasn't aware of, but I will definitely be ready in two weeks time for the real deal.

    For now, I'm kicking back with the first of likely three or four bowls (McC 5100 in the lovely silver capped Peterson Dublin 306 from ShilohHollow). I started with an espresso on the side and will likely move to gin soon. Oh, yes, and I'm reading some Holmes :D

    Congrats! I'm just glad this isn't a thread about kidney stones.... but, I'd still congratulate you on passing those too.
