I started out as a music major, and my first year was fairly happy. This semester I had it rough, though. I was doing bad with secondary instruments and the theory, and when I was failing at midterm (from a girl who  had a 3.5 gpa the previous year) I re-evaluated. I think that people fail things for a reason, and I decided to change my major. I will now be an English teacher, and minor in music. My parents took this very well, and so did most of the people in my life, but now I'm home for break. I'm from a small town and (not trying to be egotistical) am sorta known and popular for my singing. I told my high school voice teacher already, and she took it well, but I'm worried about what people will say and think. For myself, I couldn't care less, but my family has to live here, and they do care. So, I don't really know what to do when I go to church and everyone asks about how school is going and things like that. I still did well this semester, my final music semester, but what should I say beyond that?

Blah, I hate small towns. No wonder I never come home :P

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee

Simply say that school is going very well - Not only are you enjoying your music studies, but you're broadening your horizons.  They're not really looking for details anyway.  Your friends just want to know that all is well with you.  Don't be worrying about it.  Just don't dwell on the subject.

Matter of fact - Ask them  how THEY are doing.  They'll be pleased that you asked and likely change the subject to themselves in a blink of an eye...

Have a great holiday

Boy that Nan is smart!  So true, when you turn the tables and become the listener people think you are the smartest person on the planet!  Don't go so hard on yourself, as the bottom line is that this is your choice and what you feel is best for you.  People don't need specifics, and I am sure just glad you are well, happy, and still attending to obtain your dreams.

I LOVE small towns, but then I only visit them, and never lived in one.  What I love most is the very thing you question, they are caring, to the point yes of being nosey   Now just go sing a joyful song, and have a wonderful small hometown Merry Christmas.
