NATS is over

Long story Short – I didn’t do my best

I sang Monica’s Waltz for the judges, but I only felt I was giving 90%
-they ended up picking French (Au bord de l’eau) and German (Das Veilchen) to hear me sing as well

Some days are different than others

{I guess}

It was a though category
– senior undergrad women –

My audition was at 2:24, and I had to wait until 4:45 for the results.

Normally, results come straight after the last person sings
{in my situation at 4:00}

-but I ended up waiting almost an hour for the results-
{There was probably a debate over the results }

Even though I didn’t place in the end – I ended up receiving FANTASTIC comments

And every judge gave me a superior

{which I have never received, even when I have placed in past years!}


The judges were really positive and encouraging.

I guess those 5-10% really make a difference

But, now this is the past, and I’m focusing on my future events!

-first symphony solo rehearsal is Wednesday
-ClassicalSingers competition is next Saturday!
-junior recital is in A MONTH GAHHH!

But, you might wonder who’s keeping me company these days…


Halldís is visiting from NYC


Of course I showed her around Columbus ~ on my scooter :]

I’m so happy to have her!

Tomorrow I’m taking her with me to church

…let’s see what she thinks about that :]

    Hi Björg,
    I know what you mean. I did a lot of comps when I was in school. The attitude I always took was “you lose more than you win, but that doesn’t mean you don’t stop trying to win them all.” Good luck on the next one!
