The percussion spectacular took place Thursday, December 2, 2010 in Richardson Auditorium at 7:30 pm. However, that day I was really tired, decided to take a nap and when I woke up it was already 7:30!! I knew I had to attend in order to obtain recital attendance, so I quickly jumped out of the bed and walked really fast there hahah. Luckily I managed to catch the majority of the percussion pieces which were just amazing. Some of the highlights were the drumline’s 2010 cadences, “Stick Schtick”  by composer Chris Brooks and Wha…?? ( In three movements). I have to say that this is the best concert that I’ve attended this semester. WOW!!!

Percussion Spectacular 12-02-10

Percusion espectacular tomo lugar el Jueves, 2 de Diciembre, 2010 en el auditorio de Richardson a las 7:30 pm. Sin embargo ese dia estaba muy cansado y decidi tomarme una siesta, pero cuando me levante ya eran las 7:30! Sabia que tenia que atender para obtener credito de recital de musica. Me levante y empeze a caminar muy rapido. Afortunadamente alcanze la mayoria de las piezas de percusion que simplemente fueron sorprendentes. Los puntos culminantes fueron las cadencias de los tamboristas “Stick Schtick” del compositor Chris Brooks y Wha…?? (en tres movimientos). Definitivamente este es el concierto mas sorprendente que e atendido en todo el semestre. WOW!!!

So having returned from Thanksgiving break with a full stomach and a couple of extra pounds on me, I decided to order my digital recorder. Yes, the day finally came and I was surprised to see how light it was! It’s easy to use and you can literally stash it in you pocket. My only complain to the designers in Japan would be that they could’ve made the side buttons more thumb friendly, aside from that everything’s great!  (by the way you can get free shipping from amazon if you choose amazon prime).

Ya regresando de el descanso del dia de accion de gracias, decidi ordernar mi grabadora digital. Pues bien, el dia llego cuando la recivi, pero me sorprendio al levantarla porque estaba muy ligera. Lo que me gusta de ella es que es muy facil de usar y te la puedes meter al bolcillo. Mi unica queja a los fabricantes de Japon es que pudieron aver echo los botones de al lado mas facil de usar! pero todo lo demas es genial (por sierto, pueden conseguir manejo y envio gratis si escojen amazon prime).

I was just browsing on youtube for classical guitar videos, when it ocurred to me to type “Leo Brouwer” (Cuban composer)and this is what I found:Un Dia en Noviembre
I have to say that is one of the most beautiful guitar pieces I’ve ever heard. What do you think?

It seems that boredom seems to take place in the mind of most college students. However, I believe that boredom should never be in the schedule of anyone, instead you should pay attention to the small things in life that don’t seem to be very significant. For example, last weekend I received a package in the mail (very small one) and it was my custom made guitar pick that I had ordered from Red Bear Trading. Now you may be thinking, well how’s that keeping you entertained? but let me tell you that after trying out many different brands of picks I think I finally found the one suitable to my picking style and this my friends brings me joy because I don’t have to search for more. My tone starts here!

Well it’s good to be back, this semester appears to be more promising than the last one, so that’s good. The guitar department got a new guitar and I have to say it’s the most beautiful guitar I’ve heard in my life. Now I only need to get used to it since the dynamic range is huge! The music department will also be renovated so that’s good. The atmosphere at Adams State is very bright and welcoming and it’s good to see some old friends.

Now here’s some advice for the freshmen, if you can rent your books online do it! It’s much better than buying them from the bookstore, nothing agaist it but really, everything seemed like it went up! You can go halfers with a friend if you’re taking the same class, way better. By the end of the semester you can return it and you’ve saved money. Marvelous. 

Es bueno estar de regreso, ya que este semestre parece ser mas prometedor que el pasado. En otras noticias, el departamento de musica compro una guitarra nueva, y les tengo que decir que es la guitarra mas hermosa que e escuchado/tocado. Ademas el departamento va a ser renovado y el ambiente en el colegio parece ser muy amigable. Me da gusto encontrarme con viejos amigos.

Ahora, aqui va algo de sabiduria para los nuevos, si pueden rentar los libros por internet  haganlo! Ya que sale mucho mas barato que si los compraran de la tienda de libros, no tengo nada en contra pero parece que todo subio de precio. Si tienes un amigo que tambien esta tomando esa clase lo pueden intercambiar y cada quien paga la mitad! Al final de semestre nada mas lo regresas y te has ahorrado un buen dinero en el bolsillo.

Quiero agradecer a todo mundo por este semestre fantastico. En especial a Michelle Romero y Anthony por su apoyo. Voy a tratar de mantenerlos al corriente durante este verano, ya que finalmente recivi mi camara digital. Bueno pues hasta la proxima!

Hoy cuando fui a mi clase de govierno, tan pronto como me sente, me di cuenta que no podia respirar. Pense que esto pasaria, pero no fue asi! Me sentia como un pescado atrapado en un gancho. Como vengo del sur-este de Colorado, aun mis pulmones se estan acostumbrando.

Today when I went to my government class, as soon as I sat down, I couldn’t catch my breath! I thought this would eventually pass, but I was gasping for air the entire hour! I felt like a fish caught in a hook; coming from the flatlands of southeastern Colorado, my lungs feel a little different here in the mountains.

Pues finalmente tuvimos lluvia anoche que no estuvo nada mal. Yo creo que es este cambio de clima que me enferme, pero ya pasara. En otras noticias, estoy contento que la escuela ya casi se termina, pero me voy a quedar por otras tres semanas para tomar una clase de cine. Les recomiendo que tomen ventaja lo mas que se pueda, ya que vale la pena.

So we finally got some rain last night which wasn’t bad at all. It is probably this change of weather that I got sick, fortunately it should pass soon. In other news, I’m happy school’s almost over, even though I’m staying for an extra three weeks for a theater class. I recommend that you take advantage of school the most you can, it’ll pay off in the long run.

Pues cuando estaba listo para escribir este nuevo diario, iba a cargar mi telefono, pero me di cuenta que mi cargador no estaba! Pero me di cuenta que lo deje en la casa. Bueno, pues esta semana voy a estar muy ocupado, ya que tengo un examen de govierno este miercoles, y mucha algebra. Al final, lo que no te mata te hace mas fuerte, correcto?

So as I was getting ready to do this blog I was gonna charge my phone, but I noticed that my charger was gone! Then I realized that I left back home, luckily I can use my car charger. Ok so this week will be somehow busy, as I have a government exam on Wednesday and plenty of math to keep me busy. In the end, what does not kill you only makes you stronger right?
