I'm feeling better right now than I've felt in a week -- and it's because I just rocked my choral audition.

I did much better than I anticipated. I have difficulty breathing when I'm nervous, and I thought I might choke up -- my only problem come auditiontime was that my high notes were a little squeaky, but the choral director told me I've "got some nice stuff going on up there" (meaning my soprano voice, not my... you know... ) and commended me on my sight-reading ability. He shook my hand at the end and said "You're a great musician!" (I'm still laughing about this... that's the LAST thing I expected him to tell me. He's obviously never heard me play guitar!)
