a very long exhausting semester

it is Thursday today
which means that tomorrow is Friday
don't worry, im not trying to pull any Rebecca Black stunt here.
but what i am trying to say is, this means that, tomorrow will be the last day of class for such a messy semester.
well, technically, i have replacement classes next Thursday, but i don't mind that too much, at least my schedule is not as tight anymore by then.

today, however, i have gone through my final studio exam, i think it was okay, considering the opportunity for me to practice my trombone is not as much as it used to be. i am thankful for that. =) and, i have managed to submit my group's mandarin video (for our third language class), which we managed to quickly record and edit (thanks tom!) by yesterday.

how i wish i can sort of celebrate, but unfortunately, i have my educational psychology case study to submit by tomorrow, and of course, the music theory quiz a.k.a. replacement class, which also happens to be tomorrow.

you see, i am taking 13 subjects this semester, (23 credit hours)
and i found out that it is pretty much a tiring semester, but i got through it..
not exceptionally good, but i managed to cope.

i have completed 

PRESENTATION SKILLS 
i have presented on the advantages of blogging and the benefits of being a blood donor

MANDARIN LANGUAGE I
learning a language is not as easy as i looks,

VOICE METHODS
i actually learn how to sing properly, and how to teach a choir group. my first singing in front of a public experience

KEYBOARD INSTRUCTION II
my fingers tend tangle each other, -_-"

MAJOR INSTRUMENT IV
my trombone playing, 5 pieces, not as easy


MALAYSIAN MUSIC ENSEMBLE II
gamelan, kosalia arini, not easy at all!!!!!

FORUM IV
performance in front of the whole music education department. almost like conference, but here, we perform and the lecturers will comment and supposedly suggest on what we can do in order to improve.

PERFORMING GROUPS IV
orchestra, in this class, the rehearsals are tiring. the brass section doesn't play in each and every song that have been picked for this semester, we (specifically the trombone+tuba section) only have parts to play in 2 songs out of 12 songs all together, we salute you string players!!

this only leaves me with

TECHNOLOGY IN MUSIC TEACHING
a tutorial video and an arrangement of my school anthem due next week


EARLY FIELD EXPERIENCES IN MUSIC
report on 10 hours of observation also due next week

FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC EDUCATION
final written exam, must study and be all philosophical-ish

EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY
case study due tomorrow, final written exam, also must study, and be all teacher-ish, and philosophical-ish

THEORY OF MUSIC IV
quiz a.k.a replacement class tomorrow, final written exam, must study and do lots of exercises. (reminds me of math)

so, must start on my case study now! bye
