I survived my second week of classes!!! (Barely, but I’m alive). I would like to tell you a little story about my first couple of weeks at Lee. If you know me then this story should not surprise you. So basically, I got super sick. The second or third day of classes I ventured to the health clinic WHICH BY THE WAY IS ON THE EDGE OF CAMPUS!!! I was very annoyed to be walking at 7:30 in the morning. The doctor at the clinic said I had tracheal bronchitis. I have bronchitis every other week I think. I have a weak immune system because of my heart condition, and I get sick at the drop of a hat.
I woke up the day before my Lee University Singers audition not able to talk AT ALL. I tried, but it felt like knives were stabbing my throat while at the same time it was feeling completely closed. I had to lightly whisper so that I could talk without hurting my throat. I drank some hot coffee (black coffee which I COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY DESPISE) and I took a lot of DayQuil/NyQuil. I went on with my day feeling like death, and regretting getting out of bed, but it was the second day of classes and I wanted to make a good impression on my teachers. The day passed by rather quickly. After all of my classes were finished I ventured over to my new home, the music building. I went into a practice room to practice for my audition, but there was a tiny problem. I sounded like a dying horse, and it was SUPER bad. I was completely ready to embarrass myself! Now you’re probably wondering, “Noelle, why didn’t you cancel your audition?” Well good people of the interwebs, this semester is my cousin Cherish’s last semester. You can probably catch my drift. I wanted to be in it with her before she abandons me. :))))
I auditioned and sounded slightly better than a dying cow, but it was still bad. I obviously didn’t get in, but that turned out to be a good thing (that story will be in the next blog post). The days after I started getting stronger. I didn’t miss any classes except one, but that was because I was at the clinic. I survived and now I’m pretty much 100% better. God is SO SO GOOD!!! In my next post I will explain how I got into an ensemble because that is an AWESOME story of how God ordained and opened doors. Talk to you guys in the next post!
