"The University of Florida has about as much right to call themselves a School of Music as I do to call myself a professional golfer. [...] Actually, I have more of a right to call myself a professional golfer." - professor
The Sixth Edition of the URI! Domain has now been around for a month, with over six hundred visitors. Although it never again reached the number of visitors from the first two days, there seems to be a small, dedicated contingent of daily visitors. Thanks to everyone out there for taking the time out of your busy day to stop by! Hopefully you've found something here to amuse you or something that made you forget about the tribulations of life for a few precious seconds. Knowing that people visit has given me an incentive to regularly update the news page, when in past years it often went untended for months at a time.
This weekend should be fairly low-key. Besides the usual rounds of errands, practicing, Irish Washerwoman, and geeky coding, there's a theory/composition department picnic on Saturday that I'll stop in at. Although there are familiar faces in my classes, I haven't even begun to scratch the surface of the music department. I usually don't meet a lot of people in a new setting; instead, I just establish myself and go about my business. After a couple years, people become familiar with me and meet me instead. It's not that I'm actively trying to be a loner -- it's just how my personality is wired. It takes longer to establish friends this way, but I think in the long run, the friendships are more lasting. Of course, I've always had the luxury of a few years to waste in the past. As a grad student, I could ostensibly be here for as little as three years.
