Some good news: I got switched to Choralworks (aka the "good choir") because of a scheduling conflict I had with Chorale. I know Mrs. C. is probably a little ticked about it... but she switched Marissa too. ^__^ We were like "Eee, eee, eee!"
Of course, Marissa actually sings well. Really well. Outstandingly well. I'm a few steps above mediocre, but... Well, Miss Mills (why do I always have so much trouble calling her 'Jane'? She's either 'Miss Mills' or 'Justine's mommy' to me) will be pleased. She's dead set on me making an ensemble next year. Which'll be funny because I've tried out every year and never made one.
If it lets me sing "The Simple Joys of Maidenhood", I'm ok with it.
The downside to all this is that I've had to forfeit all my art classes. So long, byebye. But I can't quit Latin (not with one year left and me being treasurer). And now I really can't quit choir. And both classes are important to me. Not as important as art, but still important. And more urgent now, because it'll be my last year to participate in something so structured. I'm not going on to college to do Latin or sing, and I want to enjoy it while I can.
Does that logic make any sense? I'm worried it doesn't.
And Mrs. Atkins called me her "best art student". Of course, it was in the context of "Why is my best art student not taking any art classes?"
