Three “Inspirational” Quotes

The hiatus is almost over! Tomorrow is my last final so don’t expect a post from me then- but after that who can say? 😉

I don’t feel like I can study another minutes at the moment so I’ll put a short list together. The final (in music history from 1800 to the present) is at 7 pm (7 pm. On a Sunday. I hear you scream.) so I’ll have plenty of time to re-review tomorrow.
