If you haven’t noticed guys, I’ve been gone for a while! A few months ago, I got accepted to the Brevard Music Center’s Summer Orchestra Festival. I was excited, but nervous. I would be gone for 6 weeks straight. I was scared of being gone, of not knowing anyone, or not fitting in. Boy was I wrong. This place has become my home, and I love it here. The games of Cards Against Humanity with the cabin mates, playing in a spectacular orchestra with fabulous music, watching world-class performances, being around top-tier players, visiting a great town, and being around people like me. Back home I’m an alien, but here I’m just like everyone else. Big goals and big plans. And we all have the strategies and mindset to achieve them. Heading into week 4 of 6, I’m scared of leaving this musical planet. I love it here. I’m gonna come back home, and I’m going to be a completely different person. I love all of you guys!
