I want you between me and the feeling I get when I miss you.– KT Tunstall (from her song “Throw Me a Rope”) It came up on my Pandora, and I just love this line.
Ian Bostridge →
A great NYTimes article about the great Ian Bostridge. He and Julius Drake performed here my freshman year, and it really was a once in a lifetime experience. The article describes his odd performance habits well. Not many singers could get away with the things that he does, but somehow it works for him.

A group of three young guys who performed at the Opry tonight. They were totally cute. Or maybe I only thought so because all of the other men who performed were 75+
The sky has turned scarily black, there’s lots of thunder and lightening and the tornado sirens are going off. Awesome.
Just read that iTunes is hiking it’s prices from $.99 per song to $1.29 per song. This does not make me happy. http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2009/03/itunes_price_increase.html

I haven’t had much time to blog today because I have two GIANT papers due next week, and my mom is visiting this weekend so I won’t have much time to do work. Currently, I’m working on a paper about urban legends for my social psych class. I’m writing about the legend “The Killer in the Backseat.” You know, the one where the women pulls into a gas station...
The future is big, it’s scary, and it starts tomorrow.– The dean of my music school
It’s that time of year when all of the junior and senior recitals are happening, and it can start to get a little bit old having to attend three+ recitals in a weekend. This weekend, however, I was more than happy to attend the three recitals and one other concert that I went to. Yesterday I went to a junior voice recital, a senior harp recital and the Student Showcase. Today I went to a...
This is the restaurant that I had dinner at last night. Everything from the wine, to the atmosphere to the food was perfect. I would highly recommend it!
Is he, like, on Gossip Girl or something?– President Obama reacting to the boisterous applause mysteriously awarded to one questioner at a town hall in Los Angeles today
I am SUPER stressed about a paper that is due next Tuesday that I haven’t started yet. It’s for a class that I’m taking just for fun so I just have no motivation at all to do it. Not to mention that I am graduating from college in 50 days and have little motivation to do work in general. I am really ready to have a break from school. And after 17 years of it, can you blame...
A woman with good shoes is never ugly.– Coco Chanel
Kerri: I'm going to Boston next year!
Me: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! (pause) AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
Now myself and my two roommates all know what we will be doing when we graduate. In addition to being one of the most gorgeous days outside, it is also a very exciting day. We are all doing very different things, but they are all exactly what we want to be doing. In today's economy I think it's actually a little bit of a miracle.
Just found out that Madeleine Albright is sold out and I hadn’t gotten a ticket yet. Shit! Well, at least I got to do a little reading on her.

Arcodoro & Pomodoro restaurant →
I’m starting to explore Dallas a little bit even though I’m over 4 months away from actually moving there. This is a great restaurant that I went to when I was there in November and will definitely need to go back to. It’s in Uptown which is where I would like to live. I’m also very excited that many of the big name NYC restaurants have opened locations in Dallas....
