Things here are going fairly well.... I have a whole new voice! I can't wait for everyone to hear it! It's not really a new voice, but it is getting so much bigger and better. I'm very excited. I'm going to put together a recital when I get back. It will consist of music that I learned here. I have really learned sooo much and I'm having a great time. I have met some wonderful people and have just loved singing. I've been working really hard and am finally feeling like I'm used to this new time change, etc.

The weather is absolutely gorgeous! It hasn't rained as much as it usually does, and the days are warm, but it gets cool at night... which is nice because they have no AC here. It's not like hot like DC, but it gets a little toasty.

I have class every day, and it's pretty intense.... Here's what my schedule looks like. German class every day, voice lessons twice a week, vocal coachings twice a week, stage artistry twice a week, and then audition training twice a week. Each class is about 45 minutes long. Some days I'm running from one to the next with no break. Then we have concerts 2-3 times a week. I am not singing in all of them obviously, but i'll go sometimes to hear other singers.

I have a mock audition tomorrow.... it's to practice for an audition that I'm hoping to have for a German opera company next week. We'll see if I'll be ready. If I'm not ready, then I won't sing. I'll just wait for the next one.

I miiiiiisssss crabs!!! The food is just not the same here. We are eating cafeteria like food.... you know - it's at a school, so it's not the best thing. It keeps us breathing. I also miss Mexican food like CURRAAAZZYY!!! We do go out every once in a while, but you can't really get a good green salad at a restaurant. It's all iceburg lettuce... not my favorite.

I will put more pics on once I have them. Not really anything too exciting about sitting in a classroom!

It has been really cool reading your blog. I read it all to Dad yesterday. I'm trying to figure out how to use the comment part of this. Trina gave me some coaching so I'm going to try it again. Love you.
