I’m Rachel. I’m a Christian bassoonist getting a dual degree in bassoon performance and English (Creative Writing) at the Eastman School of Music and University of Rochester in Rochester, New York. I’m twenty-two. I’m idealistic and prone to debating. I love to laugh. My favorite color is aqua. I’m a little addicted to Dolce & Gabbana’s Rose the One perfume, chai tea, writing in my planner, and Parks & Recreation. My family and friends are incredibly sweet, lovely, and so patient. I’m definitely a work in progress, but hopefully I’ll get there eventually.
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will transform your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. — Philippians 4:4-7
