brief update: busy busy busy, i think i’m steamrolling into the end of the semester, everything is accelerating and accumulating heft and i’m going to be out of breath soon. whew.

a lovely surprise visit from an old friend this past weekend! we had dinner and watched pan’s labyrinth (goddd what a gorgeous terrifying film) and tried to recall long-forgotten memories from middle school. i cannot believe that i’m nearly two decades old. ?!?!?

things that will keep me (relatively) sane during the weeks to come:

  • figure skating! helsinki world championships! i am rooting for sui & han to get their first gold at worlds (and also nathan chen with his ridiculous quads)
  • a handful of chamber music performances: carnegie hall, mendelssohn/ives/smetana
  • spring weather is finally emerging!! (soundtrack)
