I played really well today for the most part, which makes me happy. I also nailed the mellophone solo in the opener every single time, and that feels damn good. I had so many people come up to me throughout the day and at the restaurant afterwards and compliment me on my playing, so I am one very pleased person. I wanted very much to perform well today.
The running block killed me, so I need to work on that.
And I'm so exhausted that I'm now going to bed; and I'm going to bed happy, which is a wonderful thing.
