The high from the McMaster acceptance has worn off. I still have to maintain a 80%+ average, which means I actually have to work hard again. I'm sure my desire to go to McMaster and desire NOT to go to McGill will sustain me.
I was actually going to talk about music before I got the good news, so let me do that now. I've always stuck out because of my love for country music, for better or worse I've been labeled a country boy. I never really fought the label, in fact I relished it since I garnered me many odd looks among people my age. I have an iTunes playlist that constantly updates to show my 100 most played (vocal) tracks. Recently I noticed that my top 10 only has 2.5 country songs (Blue Rodeo is a little iffy), and further investigation revealed that I had only added 3 country songs since mid - December. This shift in tastes surprises me, so naturally I blamed George W. Bush. I believe that President Bush's recent actions and the Texas/Country connection has subconsciously pushed me away from country music. This paranoid theory can be the only explanation, anything else would be crazy talk. Before everyone panics, I should point out that 28% of my music collection is country, outranking any other genre. It's just that I'm a little less country now.
