The other victory is that Julio and I got back from Music on our own without much fuss at all. The only fuss was the "what a cute puppy you are!" stuff which I'm pretty much used to. The practice quiz was awful, I keep getting motette (sp?) and madrigal mixed up. But I did well on the matching musical terms. Also, I forgot that the piece by Hildegard of Bingen is a gregorian chant. I've done worse, but it wasn't my best quiz either. Thankfully, it's not graded at all and it gives me a better idea of what to expect. I think this class will actually help me enjoy music more.
I'm really happy with these small victories. Sometimes, it's not getting it right the first time, it's having the courage to try again when you feel like you've failed miserably.
