Altissimo

Update: I got done with the music theory diagnostic exam. It was a little tougher than anticipated, especially as there were a lot of questions about form, etc of a piece and I've never been good at identifying that. Otherwise though it went well - my identification of chords, non-chord tones, cadences etc was pretty solid, and I'm very confident in the part-writing.

Later I have some aural + keyboard skills tests with the interview. That's what I'm /really/ worried about.

...Really though. Don't let them take it away from you. That desire for something more, for adventure... for destiny. Don't let them turn it against you, either.

Update #2. I'm at lunch with the other grad candidates and a handful of current grad students. We went to a wings place and i ordered fish and chips and they didnt have fries and they didnt have fish either, gj. Anyway so we were talking about our theory interests, and one of the other grad candidates mentioned video game music. So I said "Do you play video game music?" *nod* "On piano? Do you use NinSheetMusic?" and she smiled and said yes and the guy next to her chimed in, "I have that bookmarked!" and I just grinned and said I'd started arranging for them/y'all

I've always wanted to  meet a bunch of non-NSM members who actually use the site! That must have been really awesome!

Braixen is a wonderful [insert gender] with beautiful [corresponding gender trait] and is just the darlingest at [stereotypical activity typically associated with said gender] you ever saw.

they had greasy potato chips which were either bland or v salty

anyway i got done and uhhhhhhhh well i found out i got like a 92 on the diagnostic test? and the piano sightreading + analysis was not difficult and i did ok? and i think i did ok when i had to teach V7? but like, there were like ear analysis things and thaaat was not as good, i knew this was gonna happen because for all my skill at arranging i'm not super competent at hearing shit like that oh god ; ; nooooo i'm so nervous fuck

I did. Chips in England are called fries in MURICA. Altissimo said fries as well as chips.

Magic Mole

Someday in a utopian future where I'm actually motivated to arrange things frequently and I have a bunch of sheets on-site:
*some guy/girl talking about video game music*
"Hey, you ever heard of NSM? I think you'd love it."
"YES! I get like all of my sheets there, it's amazing!"
"Oh cool! I'm Magic Mole." 8)
*eyes widen and mouth falls open*
Alternate Route
"Oh cool! I'm Bespinben."
*flinches in terror and lets loose a primal shriek while doing everything they can to hide their mangled fingers*
