What have I done over the past month and a bit?? To be honest, not a great deal. I think there's been a lot of mental-emotional stuff that I needed to sort out, especially in the wake of the conflict with the housemates and all that (which, by the by, has all been resolved, and it turns out the boys weren't even angry with me beyond the day of the blow-up itself, grr, argh). And Other Nick has decided he will be staying in this house, to my relief, happiness and chagrin. Heh. Anyway.
I've mostly been trucking along, keeping afloat, but without accomplishing much. Not entirely true; I did take on the challenge of being the keyboardist for a production of Heathers: The Musical at Murdoch Uni, which was a bit of a struggle because a) I'm not adept at playing other people's music; b) I didn't have prior knowledge of the music from the show; and c) I was brought in as keyboardist on the Sunday before Thursday's opening night. Argh! Talk about stressful! But it all worked out well enough in the end, and I managed to (mostly) fumble my way through the score, and all in all, it was a good experience that made me think I should consider playing in more musicals (other than my own). We'll see.
