@Sleet, that reminds me of sorrow: I have played trumpet for ten years now, and in the past year I have not picked up the instrument more than a handful of times, and have played in 0 ensembles. I blame traveling and classes.

It's sad knowing I'm past my prime and I'll never be near as good as I was back in high school when I practiced five hours a day. Picking it up is always bittersweet, but at least composing is still a fun creative vent from time to time.

Sorrow: My patience for people is at my wit's end. Can't use any of my usual stress relaxers until tomorrow after work.

Wonderful. Absolutely wonderful(I may post some of the photos I took there if I remember).

Edit: Here's a badge a friend of mine at a booth did for me while I was there

Joy: whoa, I just won a HUGE scholarship and a big major fellowship, as well as a few collegeial/departmental things. My resume is getting sort of ridiculous now and I think I can be very competitive for top gradschools like Caltech. I'm sort of bouncing off the walls a bit because I can't believe I'm getting this lucky.

Sorrow: my personal life is suffering a bit as my professional one thrives. No surprise...

Joy: I pre-ordered Wildstar and am pretty stoked about it coming out in a couple of weeks. :D
No, it's not just because you can be a blue cat people!...okay, it's totally because you can be a blue cat people.

Sorrow: I've kind of resigned myself to my fate of having a receding hairline. I was hoping I wouldn't have to find out what I look like bald for at least ten more years but if it keeps going like this I'm probably just gonna chop it all off (and grow a beard ). Hey, maybe I can just get some spiffy glasses and I'll look like Moby.

Do you wear a hat on a regular basis? I've heard that tight-fitting hats can make you go bald faster :I.

I have a receding hairline too! No shame in that!

Here's me backstage at a play a few years ago:

Sadly it's pretty much genetic; my dad's whole family is like that. I don't wear hats very often except for work (they told me I had to either wear a hat or a hair net, so obviously i went with a hat) and when I do I wear them really loosely anyway.

Sorrow: Cat had a blood clot in his leg that really screwed him up. Had to put him down. Then I locked myself out of my car. But that's nothing compared to losing Marley. I'm gonna miss him.

Joy : had fun hanging out with friends playing Magic

Anger : Got lost in the next town over trying to find the airport, resulting in an annoyed mother and anger at ODOT for having misleading signs.
