Damn, you're right. I haven't seen Bill in quite some time. I hope he and his family are okay.

Another member I've been lamenting for quite some time has been Octave. A really enthusiastic personality with a love for exploring more unknown repertoire.

A new member named "alanwaston" mysteriously disappeared along with the thread he plagiarized from another site, "Approaches to Harmony" or something.

Nothing mysterious about it: I disappeared him and his thread too.

Oh hey! I am back!  :) It's nice to be missed sometimes.

And even during my time away I would browse the forum every once in a while, just didn't post. This is still my favorite go-to spot for where and how to spend my money!  $:)

To be honest, my 2nd to last semester of school had me strung out enough that I was pretty much continuously high for the entire month of December. Doing good now though.

Ten years after completing conservatory undergrad w a piano performance major, I went for a second round bachelor-masters in theory and comp (piano minor, natch). Gen ed credits held, but since they were older than five years, none of the music credits counted.  I was in all essence, a freshman again.  As a full fledged adult ca. 30yo, it was 'easier' by that perspective.  When I was asked by people my age and then in their workplace what I was doing, and said 'went back to school,' they all said, "School is easy."  I thought to myself, "clearly, you never experienced being a fine arts major."  Lol.

Hope your performance (grade point average) was not affected... my hunch is it was not.  The anxiety over the expectations others have for you (family, profs, yourself) can make for an unbearable pressure.  It is easy to say 'just do this for yourself and meet your own expectations, because that is really enough.'  It is more difficult to do if you are a young person in college; still, your own expectations being enough and ignoring every other person's expectation is what I most recommend ;-)


Always best regards.
