Today I learned that a composer named Erwin Schulhoff wrote a completely tacet piece as the third movement of his “Fünf Pittoresken" for piano. His piece pre-dates John Cage’s 4’33” by 30 years, and is actually much more suggestive as to how the silence should be shaped, containing really complex rhythmic rests and lines to the rests. His successful career was cut short due to the Rise of the Nazi Regime in Germany and their strict rules on music, and because of this, his pieces are very rarely played or referenced to.

checking for orchestras to play with nearby school
and planning in my head how I should pack each box
I’m going to pack down a lot of my stuff today… and clean my room… I just want to skip to the fun parts really
Proof of the double-flute-on-stand monstrosity that happens daily in my band
I know you don’t approve of this but the photo needs to happen
OH MY GOD THEY’RE UPSIDEDOWN TOO
So my neighbors got angry at me once and asked me to not practice after 11 PM. I said fine, because I am a nice person.
They started vacuuming at 10:57ish. I waited until it was 11PM on the dot, and then broke out my violin. This is the first time in my life that a Bach sarabande has ever been used as an instrument of revenge.

Let’s see how big the army is.
So one of my best friends had a medieval fantasy wedding
at a hella cool castle
the groom channeled Thranduil and the Baratheons
the bridesmaids were elf maidens
the court jester and town crier were there
the cakes were gorgeous
luckily a friar was passing through town who was able to officiate (“mawwaige,” he said, “is what bwings us togevver today”)
the bride’s chariot was pulled by the most beautiful creature
unfortunately, as with all medieval weddings, there is the dragon problem
deep conversations with open minded people are my most favorite things ever
How to Care for an Introvert
1. Respect their need for privacy and to spend time on their own.
2. Be careful never to embarrass them in public.
3. When they are in a new situation, allow them to stand back, and watch what’s going on.
4. Allow them time to process what you’re asking or saying. Don’t demand an answer right away.
5. Be patient if they hesitate to find the right words – and never interrupt while they are speaking.
6. If you are going to change or cancel plans, give them plenty of prior notice.
7. Allow them to practice and perfect skills alone.
8. Correct or challenge them privately – never in front of an audience.
9. Don’t force them to hang out with a crowd of people, or expect them to amass a lot of friends. A few good friends is more comfortable for them.
10. Don’t try to turn them into an extrovert. Respect them for being exactly who they are.

I’m moving next wednesday (to my school, instead of commuting a total of ~3h a day yay!), which is less than a week and I’m not freaking out as much as last time. Wonder where the influence on my temper has come from… I think it’ll turn out pretty well, so I’m mostly hopeful and excited! :)
Yesterday and today I’ve been sat coding the css/html theme codes for my swedish blog, which I tried to use for a while and then gave up… but I’m trying to make it look more like a tumblr-theme, so perhaps it will make me more motivated to blog about my everyday life when I’ve moved. That’s the plan at least.
I’m working over the weekend which is a bit sad, but hey, money… woo !
I’m also awaiting two bills and I know I have to purchase some more stuff before and after I move which makes my skin itch. It feels like a rather irritating problem to be insecure about my economical situation, but it’s also hard to sit down and make a plan when everything is sort of “floating”… asdgfdghlnv and I also want to buy new yarn so I can knit something
that’s what’s going on now darlings.
Hugs and kisses!
