Wow, okay...

-I got a REALLY AMAZING offer today from one of the summer festivals I applied to.  I will reveal all the details once I get the official letter (today I got a phone call from the director of the festival) but they're having me perform as a soloist in MULTIPLE orchestral works and chamber works.  And they're covering my expenses.  SCORE!

-I confirmed that I start Russian lessons on Monday.  I've been doing all the arrangements for lessons through this teacher's son.  Today, as I was just getting off the phone, he added on a sort of side note, "By the way, just so you know, my mother doesn't really speak very much English."  So I guess I'll be learning Russian via the IMMERSION technique! 

-Even this great offer from the festival hasn't really done much to increase my feelings of self worth.  I don't know what to do about that.  I wish I had the confidence to set boundaries with people, to tell them, "you're hurting me," and not let them talk their way out of it and turn it around on me.  How did I let someone negate my feelings so much and put me in this place so low?
