It's done! The "culmination" of my undergrad voice studies is finished. In all, I'm glad to say I did it. Now I have to make enough money to reabsorb the expense. It was around what I expected it to be, but I wish I hadn't overextended myself just so I could be satisfied with the results, especially with my physical audience being so small. Still, it paid off big time for me emotionally. And I'm glad he came. I know I pressured him a bit, but I know that if he really didn't want to come at all he would have just made an excuse and have me borrow the car.
There is much more on my mind, but this doesn't feel like a suitable place or time to post any more at the moment.
