Remember that Flautist in my Blog and 100 Years of Broadway

She made a return today! That is to say, I helped out some beginner flautist today. These kids are literally baby flautist! School started about a week and a half ago and I know they have not been playing too much longer than that, if even! It gave me a chance to go back to where I really started to get serious about playing and it also gave me a chance just to chill and educate the next flautist generation. It was really fun and I cannot wait to go back the rest of the week! I actually had the desire to practice some music! Say what?!?!?! Maybe if I could get a duet playing with Astronaut Cady Coleman, that would make me want to practice!
I ended up sticking around the rest of the afternoon and listened to the beginning brass class and 7th & 8th grade band as well. It was. . . fun. I remember those days of trying to learn Tiger Rag and put the moves in with all the right notes and rhythms! After school called for some sweet tea and sweet potato fries! Hey, no judgments! Even though I ate a late breakfast of real cherries (OMG, yummy), a bagel thin with the new Laughing Cow Strawberry cream cheese spread and then a snack before I left of cottage cheese and blueberries, waiting until after 3 in the afternoon to eat is insane! I also grabbed some green grapes and toast with Nutella after getting back. Speaking of Laughing Cow, you MUST try their new cream cheese spread! It is delicious and way fewer calories than other cream cheese spreads! Laughing cow, if you read this and need someone to try new products out on or just to send yummy things, send them my way!
Alright, on to 100 Years of Broadway! My mother got season tickets to the Tulsa PAC and she invited me on her first adventure of the season. We had the wonderful opportunity to see 100 Years of Broadway, written by Neil Berg. While I was a music major, I am not a huge musical fan and so out of about 20-25 musical songs, I could count the number of songs I knew on one hand. The performers were wonderful and had great voices! I enjoyed the little stories that accompanied the songs and I am now interested in seeing some of the musicals that they sang. My favorite part was when they started singing Oklahoma! and the entire crowd stood up and started singing along! It was a good moment! What other state has a whole musical named after them by Rodgers and Hammerstein? Yep, pretty sure not yours!
All in all, things have been good! Still looking for work and I will finally be heading back to Virginia after Labor Day. I am looking forward to getting back, but I am getting antsy in all respects. Such is life! Alrighty, off to make dinner or something. Have a great evening!
