Here's to useless arts degrees

This weekend, I actually put my two university emphases to work. If you didn't already know, I studied music and French in school. A lady from France showed up at church, and didn't speak a lick of English. So I volunteered myself to translate for her, which was interesting considering I haven't spoken French for years and years. Sometimes I would blank on the stupidest words. I couldn't for the life of me remember the French word for small. I think it's in the dictionary somewhere close to stupid. (Don't tell me. I know the word for small is bĂȘte, OK?)
I also got to be in a flute choir concert. This is a very fun ensemble I get to be part of, with usually about twelve flute players, complete with piccolo, alto, and bass flute. I never thought I'd get to do that after I graduated, and so I feel really lucky.
So, I get to use both music and French in my post-university life. I'm assuming the paycheck for all my years of study is still in the mail.

You are funny Kaylie! You know I think you are brilliant. :) I think it's fantastic that you have both of those talents. Both concerts were fun. I am happy that I get to be in the flute choir too.
Thanks for the sweet comment! Now here's to a break from Saturday morning rehearsals! Yay!
