Sophomore has no Valentine

Melanie Pang: So, what’re your plans for Valentine’s Day?
Chelcy Cotton: Oh, Valentine’s Day ‘hellip; I will be in San Antonio at Texas Music Educators’ Association.
Pang: Do you have a Valentine in mind?
Cotton: I do not. I think Valentine’s Day is overrated.
Pang: Oh, really, why?
Cotton: (singing) Oh, because I’ve never had a Valentine!
Pang: (laughs) Do you think Valentine’s Day is a Hallmark holiday, or do you think it’s a special day?
Cotton: I think it’s a special day, but not when you have no one special to share it with.
Pang: This is a sad topic, let’s pick a happier one. What’s it like in the music school?
Cotton: What’s it like in the music school ‘hellip; Well, it’s kind of the same thing every day. You see the same people, the same walls and the same teachers, and it’s like, ‘Am I ever going to get out of this prison?’
Pang: (laughs)
Cotton: But, at the same time, you kind of grow to love it. It’s like another home, especially since you’re there so much.
Pang: What do you picture yourself doing after college?
Cotton: I want to get my master’s degree and then I want to teach elementary kids.
Pang: (asks to repeat) Oh, I though you said something about teaching Alicia Keys. What’s your favorite season and why?
Cotton: My favorite season down here is like fall. Well, I should say winter because winter is always not extremely cold, but it’s not hot, so it’s good. And it’s good for my hair.
