This semester at university has been a bit tough, because I am taking five courses, two of which are math. I did not really want to take two math classes at the same time, but with my work schedule, I was pressed to take whatever was available when I would be. It is not much good though dwelling on this semester now that it is nearly over. I find myself wondering where it went.
I have been having a lot of fun in the S.C.A. (A medieval historical recreation group.) It is really helping me meet new people and get over being so very shy. I have found that it is not quite as difficult to talk to someone when you know that you already have a common ground. My main focus right now (when I have time) is researching period music composition, but it will be a long time I can compose my own. In the meantime, I am learning the few period songs I have found, and some period style songs that others in the society have written. I have always had a great love for music and performance, but after high school (I was in choir) I did not think that I would have an outlet for it again. There is a plethora of other things that I am interested in as well, such as: embroidery, black-work, costuming, weaving, spinning, court dancing, archery, sword fighting, cooking... and the list goes on. What I like most about the SCA though is that the ideals of honor, chivalry, and courtesy are very much alive.
