Today was so much fun. Brilliant singers in platform, all of whom I knew from last year, of course, so it was particularly special to see them being so good. And then Jake, our terminally lovely counter tenor, invited me to come to the pub for a bit. So I did. I sat! in the pub! with people on my course! and chatted! as if I were as good as them! It was odd. And then we analysed a Goethe poem in German and that was full of the joys of literary analysis, too. I am very happy. Oh, and before all that I went shopping and bought some DVDs. Hallowe'en is now even more guaranteed to be a success. Life ++.
