In Which I'm A Blatant Hypocrite

Hi everyone!

I'm not sure if I've mentioned yet, but something pretty big is happening on Saturday - I'm taking my ABRSM Grade 5 music theory exam. To be honest, it's not really my favourite thing in the world - I love the practical part of music, but theory is kind of boring. :P And I'll be the first to admit that I definitely haven't been preparing as much as I did in previous years. School + Frozen Hearts + blogging have been taking up quite a bit of my time - and of course, something has to get pushed to the bottom of the list! ;)

So - contrary to my claims that I'm on top of everything and my proclamation that in order to lead an organised life, one has to eliminate all procrastination - I've kind of been cramming for the exam for the past couple of days and will be doing so until Saturday. :P Lucky for me, I'm actually pretty good at theory so it's certainly not as difficult as it might be for others, but it's mostly just a matter of brushing up on concepts I've already learned. I've found that if one knows the actual instrument and the practical part of music, the theory comes pretty naturally as well! :)

So that's basically going to be my life for the next two days. Can't say I'm especially looking forward to it (getting it out of the way, perhaps?), but oh well - it's a thing that has to be done! I am looking forward to posting Friday Poetry tomorrow, though. I missed it last week, so it'll be awesome to share that with you guys. :D

love, Topaz
