The Carpathian Ensemble on WPTS Live Show
Went searching through the tags and found this. This is the ensemble I joined! This is from earlier this year, before I joined. Hopefully soon we’ll have videos from this semester.
We just had two shows last weekend, the first of which was a total blast. We thought we’d basically be background music because it was at an art gallery that was having an auction, but we were pretty much center stage (the place was so small it was unavoidable), and it turned into a party with dancing and singing. We were only supposed to play once, but we ended up taking a short break and then going on for a second set.
I know some/all of the shows this weekend were recorded, so hopefully videos will be available soon.
I feel bad because the plan was for me to get a job while i’m out here and pay my own bills. Well i got a job, was absolutely miserable at it. Like i found myself suicidal from all the stress, between the job and school and just life in general, so i allowed myself to quit. And now i’ve found a second job, but i haven’t been able to pay all my bills for one reason or another. And i had some extra cash, but wasn’t able to buy the things i needed so i spent it on other stuff, and now i can buy the things i need but i don’t have the money anymore.
And i just feel bad because my dad has been helping me out, but i know he doesn’t really have the money. And i’m going to need some help this month too because, due to the holidays and timing, i’m going to need to pay December’s and January’s rent out of both my paychecks this month. And i could work when i go home, but i decided not to. And it’ll be nice to have a break from both classes and work, but at the same time i should be doing more. And i just feel like shit because i needed my dad to spot me on rent because my roommate asked for it early and i didn’t have it till today, so he did. But then today i got an email notice that his account was overdrawn for an amount less than the rent (my name is also on the account so i hear about it too), and i checked my other account to see if the money was even taken out yet, and it wasn’t. So he could’ve kept the money, not overdrawn his account and gotten charged for it, and i could’ve just written the rent check out of my account normally.
And because i failed at managing my money (though it was probably only $20 or $30 that i blew on unnecessary things, but still), i don’t think i’m going to have much to buy Christmas presents, or my textbooks for next semester.
My Hungarian professor wants us to memorize and sing a song in Hungarian tomorrow. Yeah um, my voice is still dropping? I can’t sing all that well?
