First of all, I am sick right now. For the last couple of days, I’ve been in a constant daze due to my head alternating between a headache-stage and a lightheaded-stage. And my body is in constant pain and I can’t really breathe through my nose. I gave up on going to classes this week so far because of this delirious state I am in. But I’m still working in the lab!…>.> (Dayquil ftw?) That’s why I could have easily hallucinated everything I am about to say.
Today, I was originally not going to go to concert band rehearsal because I wanted to finish all of the work I had to do in the lab and then go back to sleep. And it was a shortened rehearsal, so there would not have been much of a point to leave the lab and go for half an hour and then go back to the lab to finish everything. But then an hour before, I decided to go because it is the last rehearsal before our concert on Sunday. In the middle of the rehearsal, my band director rehearsed my part (two triplets and a whole note) because I was not playing slow enough, and after I get it right, he turns to the rest of the band and says, “Kiran is one of the best [contra-alto] clarinet players I know,” or something along those lines, (I don’t remember the exact quote) and then there was clapping and sarcastic cheering (lol). While that’s happening I’m sitting there thinking that I know plenty that are better than me..or two people, which is plenty in the CA clarinet world lol.
But if I’ve learned anything from reading this title, it is that you never refuse a compliment, so I’ll take it.
Ego +1 :P
