Quitting Music Forever. (not)

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

Music.  Music is amazing.  You can hear it and feel it but can’t see it. (I can’t believe I keep linking to this song.  It’s just so funny though)  It’s a fairly universal language (although an A is considered 443 or 442 hz here in Europe, though its 440 in America…) and it’s beautifully mathematical.

Kinder Games

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

Today I swung on swings in the park.  Someday soon I’ll have to take photos exclusively of the park.  Maybe I’ll do that tonight!  Night photos of a big playground will be sweet. As I was swinging, I remembered a game from my childhood.  As kids we seemed to look for every opportunity to throw […]

Friday, April 1st, 2011

Although I’ve only been here a week, I can’t help but find myself wondering, “is this where I belong?  Will I stay here?  What if I get a work visa and can stay indefinitely?  Will I want that?  Will I do it?” I love Austria, but I have to keep in mind that it is […]
