Me on May 14: "I haven't pulled an all-nighter in a while, but it's scary how fast it comes back."

Me today, and also yesterday, 11ish: "*yaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn* oh god I am not functional after 10."

Less than a year, seriously, what happened? I swear I used to be more hardcore than this.

In non-whiny news: my brother has loaned me his sax, so now I have a borrowed alto and a borrowed c melody to mess with, and the alto even works consistently. Might be time to supplement teaching myself with a few real lessons. I've never had real lessons on an instrument before, but hey, why not?

It's interesting -- I can choose interesting things to play and I can learn the scales and whatnot, but the sax seems to have a lot of interesting wrinkles that make it way harder to teach yourself than guitar or bass or piano. If my B is always flat, how come? What makes that octave jump happen accidentally sometimes? And so on. Vibrating columns of air are way less intuitive than vibrating strings, it seems.
