Whew!  Last week was a Very Long Week.  Starting Tuesday, we had orientation for 8 to 12 hours each day... meetings, tours, lectures, and placement exams.  The placement exams were the worst... really, you expect me to remember how to do music theory at 8 in the morning?  Unlikely...

In spite of feeling slightly frazzled, I made an effort to get myself dressed up in my vintage(-ish) finery every day of orientation... we must keep up some standards around here, after all!  Well, and give everyone else a heads-up as to what sort of trouble I'd be the rest of the year.  The Dean said that he thought Doug and I might be the sharpest-dressed in the conservatory.  And, although these pictures don't prove it, I even managed to wear some hats!  So I think we're off to a good start.
