It's the day of the Hallowe'en recital/show at The Hampton at Tanglewood. My period has hit full-force, and I couldn't care less about singing, at this moment.
I am not going to perform "The Raven." I have had too much going on related to work for the past couple of weeks to memorize the poem and told my teacher last week that I didn't feel comfortable performing it right now. Hopefully, by next Hallowe'en, I'll have it memorized and adequately practiced.
Besides, my inclination today is to tell Poe's narrator to "Just shut up and get over Lenore, already. Grow a spine."
I just want to crawl back into bed. Thank God this is hitting on a day I'm off work.
