New Member Intro

Hello everyone! libraspiccfllmt  told me about this group, so I thought I'd come check it out. :)

My name is Megan. I'm 21 (22 next month) and I will be starting my fifth year of college in the fall. I started out as a Music Education major, but dropped the Education part of the degree halfway through my sophomore year. This actually set me back a bit because I didn't have any of the general education requirements. I also decided to pick up a psychology minor because its interesting and I knew then that I'd be in school for five years already so why not get more out of it than just one major? If you'd like to know, I dropped the education part because the education department and the music department did not get along. I have been thinking about going back to school somewhere else later on to get my education degree, but I doubt it at this point in time.

My primary instrument is flute. I've never played piccolo. I'm actually not a big fan of it unless you can play really well. And a talented piccolo player is hard to come by. I recently picked up alto flute for my flute quartet and fell in love. 

I started out in 3rd grade on piano and percussion. My mom played alto sax and flute when she was younger so I always messed around with both instruments when I was growing up. Mom bought me a flute when I was in 8th grade and I pretty much taught myself until we finally decided I needed a teacher halfway through high school. Music is all I've ever known. It's always been a big part of my life, so that's why I am majoring in it in college. 

Let's see, what else can I say... I love animals, especially dogs. One of my goals in life is to start my own animal rescue center. I'd be happy with just working for one I guess. I have an 8 year old mut named Alli and she's my best friend. I know its cheesy, but she is. Her mom was a black lab and her dad was a german shepard, but she's got long blonde hair... almost yellow lab-ish. Her personality is definitely that of a german shepard, though.

Okay, I will stop babbling now. I look forward to getting to know all of you. :)
