I am in a relatively good mood today. I've had a decent amount of energy and I ate according to my meal plan. A nice change from what's been going on this week.
Today I received an email from the man in charge of uni housing. It was a standard email that I'm sure he sends to several students (I received an identical email last week) saying that I have been placed in student housing and that I will be able to view my assignment starting tomorrow (Thursday). So I wonder if this means that I was transferred to one of the dorms that I really want to live in! I don't know what the email means, but I am hopeful that maybe this will be the case. If not that 's fine too. I've pretty much come to terms with the housing to which I have already been assigned. It's not ideal, but at least it's with another person and I'll have my own room.
Also, I have decided that when I return to school, in an effort to branch out and meet people, I am going to audition for my uni's wind ensemble. I play several instruments-- piano, clarinet, bass clarinet, saxophone-- but I am going to audition on bass clarinet because I believe I have the best chances of getting in on that instrument. I haven't played any of the wind instruments since high school. So today I pulled out my old bass clarinet music and started to practice. I practiced for about a half hour; I figure that if I practice about a half hour (almost) every day then when the audition comes along I will be very proficient. I'm actually really excited about the prospect of being in the wind ensemble. I think that would be a lot of fun.
It's a nice to have something in life to look forward to. It takes a little of the edge off of the depression.
