K, so I don't write very often. To make up for it, I'm writing four posts in one:
1) Interview requests are now being processed, but I already found out that I won four lottery interviews. That means I bid enough points to get those interviews automatically, regardless of whether the employer wants me or not. Hey, I've got at least four!
2) First round of class selection ended today. I've got three great classes for first semester, and two great classes for spring. There's another couple rounds of class selection left, but I'm very happy with the ones I've got so far. Rock on.
3) I've got a monthly column now on the CASA website. If you care about how to plan a summer tour, read my first article.
4) I've been selected to co-host and produce a podcast of all original a cappella music. It's more fun than I even expected! If you're interested, or even just want to mock my radio voice, give it a listen (I'm on episode 2).

The UT-based International Children's Choir has been selected to represent the United States in the World Choir Games, an olympic-like tournament for choirs. This year's Games will be held Xiamen, China. Because they've been asked to sing music that represents the religion of their area, they will be performing a few LDS hymns: "The Spirit of God," "Let Zion in Her Beauty Rise," and "A Child's Prayer." The last one will be sung in various languages. For more info on the story, check here.

GREAT weekend. Nice to have time off work, spend time with family, catch up on some things... On the 4th, we went to Kaysville in the morning to see my nephew Josh in the parade. Half of the parade was normal and nice, and the other half was a huge water fight. Which I wasn't looking forward to at first, but by the time that part of the parade came, it was really hot, and really nice to get doused by the hoses. And watching 8,000 children go nuts is pretty fun. That night we went back up to Kaysville for a fun BBQ with family, then over to the park to watch some of the best fireworks I've seen in years. What a great holiday!
