Part II: The Waiting

Auditions are finished!

Wolfgang Amadeus Marshmallow has completed the audition portion of this college odyssey. He seemed to keep my words of wisdom ("Please dont suck!") foremost in his mind during this process, which served him well. At this point, we have three acceptances out of four auditions, with the last one, Ithaca College, pending adjudication. We will hear from them in mid-March.

Now, we wait. I didn't get good marks in waiting. Neither did Wolfgang or his mother. I anticipate much suckiness and attempts at making the calendar turn pages via psychokinesis over the next several weeks.

This is Wolfgang waiting:

He's the tall one in the middle of the photo. I don't know who that woman is next to him, but she tried to make small talk during the time we had to wait for the audition. It was kind of her but frankly it was annoying. We don't like small talk at these times. We don't like it any time really, but especially at these times. We like to wait in silence, like this:

Ok, we text or read. But we don't talk! We meditate quietly.

But now we have to wait for a whole month! I can't not talk talk for a whole month. That means that you, who are reading this, must suffer with the blogging equivalent of small talk. Ha! I'm so hypocritical!

Maybe I'll post a link to a few minutes video of a performance, just to really test your devotion to this blog. Nah! Too much to ask. And too much work on my part to do it using this iPad. That's true laziness, folks. I hope you appreciate it.

Over this coming month we'll have to run various scenarios through our heads so that when this last acceptance or rejection comes through we are ready to go. Ithaca as a little fish in a biggish pond? Shenandoah as a big fish in a puddle? University of Maryland as a minnow in the ocean? Or somewhere else?

The updates will come, in the form of fantastic proclamations with lots of exclamation points. Maybe a hyphen or two. Keep your eyes peeled.

    But I have every faith in Wolfgang. Good luck with the decision-making process and keep us posted!

  2. So glad you got three out of four yeses already! I'm not going to be helpful in the waiting department. I am a horrible waiter.
    Any news?

  3. I remember this feeling. You forget it the moment something fantastic happens. Here's hoping.

  4. I hate waiting. I am not patient. Small talk? I am the Queen of small talk, good thing I wasn't there.
