Former singer  
Just got a call from Greg, who had just gotten a call from Steve. Steve and Graham have been approached to join a different quartet, with which they would have better chances of progressing in the competition circuit. They've taken the opportunity, which leaves Greg and I quartetless.

The thought that will occur to you is that this leaves me more time to concentrate on my studies. I recognize the validity of that thought, and ask you not to express it. Right now I'm still in shock, and the next step will likely be a combination of hurt and anger. It'll be a while before I reach acceptance, and it won't be 'till then that I can appreciate such words.

::Stutters:: WHAT?????

They are the ones that didn't want to compete or do like ANYTHING!!! What the Hell?

I so feel you pain. And crap, that means that Thursdays will once again be "Jenny needs to work, but want to spend time with her husband nights." DAMN THEM!!

And this two days before Greg and I were planning on bringing it up again. Still, I guess the four of them sang together last week, and liked the way it sounded enough to make the change.

Ouch. I felt this pain when I got the speech from my marimba band that "since I was leaving in a year, I was a problem."

I also can empathize with losing something, even though you have more time for other things that are important, you'd prefer to have the option to make that decision yourself - esp when it means that much to you.

*HUG* Wish it was real, but the love that's behind it is.

Re: Thanks.
long friendship = understanding of defenses.

Love ya too, Time.

I am sorry to hear that...or read that. Yes that means you have more time for study, however, everyone needs something to look forward to each week. A break from the "what I must/should do" is a must in itself.
Best wishes to you...

I agree on all counts. Plus, as much as I love Jen, it's nice to have some activity that's "mine" - it helps me get some Me time even if it's at the apartment.

'Cause, of course, it's all about me...

You could spend your Thursdays sending them hate mail. I'll help you with the expletives.

It's a thought.
Let's see how I feel about it once I hit that "anger" stage. Thanks for the offer! =)
