Belcoo | A Misadventure in Northern Ireland

This post is une petite dédicace to my friend Annaelle in memory of our misadventure in Belcoo. Recent events have inspired me to repost this entry from my wordpress blog, and so, I thought I would share this particular adventure I had while living in Northern Ireland. In late winter/early spring, my friend and I went to a small town called Belcoo as the first...

Keeping it (un)real in English: A Guest Post by UncleVania

UncleVania is one of my good friends from university and a fellow ethnomusicologist. I asked UncleVania to write a guest post on Eurolinguiste due to the fact that this dear friend is not only a brilliant writer and educator, but bilingual in Greek and English. Here is his post on his experience learning and living in another language. Unbelievably, UncleVania is not yet a blogger,...

2014 Goals

This last year I completed a Project 365 where I practiced and worked on music everyday for an entire year. I hope to keep practicing as much as possible, and I am sure it will be more often than not, but this year I have a different goal. This year I aim to work on an entirely different aspect of my music abilities. To throw...

Thirty by 30 | Eurolinguiste

There are a number of tasks that I would like to accomplish in the next year, but rather than focus on a series of short term resolutions, I’d like to something a little different. I have several years before I hit thirty, but it’s never too early to start a list of big picture, long-term goals. Actually, it’s all the more reason to start my...

The Day My Life Changed Forever

When I started college as an undergrad, there were a number of people who were certain I would quit. To this day I still have no idea why – it’s not because I’m a bad student, I actually enjoy academia. If I were to guess, I believe they always thought I would realize I didn’t need a degree as a performer and would drop out...
