Music this semester

I am one lucky person. I have really awesome teachers this semester, including my piano teacher Mandy. Last week I had my first lesson with her, and to my great surprise, we are playing the same piece! Lob de Tranen, which means "praise of tears" is beautiful. It's mournful and touching all at the same time. It makes me so happy and sad at the same time... I love how music can do that to you. Everything is going wonderful including a cooking class where I get to make food, eat it, and be happy! I really do like my life, okay I love it.

What a great way to start the school year.

On my first day of my JUNIOR year, I was walking across university avenue. I got all the way to the other side and began to step up on the curb when my left food caught on the sidewalk lip and I face planted it, backpack and all. This wouldn't have been to big of a deal except for two things:

1) I landed on my hand, and thought I might have broken it (My first thought was, "I am so dead if I can't play piano this semester")
2) Out of the corner of my eye I see this random person dart across the street, through traffic, to come see if I was okay.

Of course number 2 got me all flustered and I was all teary eyed because I thought I would have plenty of time to compose myself before the next light changed and allowed more students over to my side of the street.

Luckily, my hand was not broken, AND I found out two other people in my ward fell the first day too. I am not alone in my clumsiness.
