I will be learning Qt, which is pronounced "cute" (like baby ducks). Qt will do the heavy-lifting graphics part of my game. In C++. There is a tutorial on YouTube and if I get really stuck, there are other places I can turn for help. This is the same thing I was trying before, but with the luxury of having a working program, I can do this in a more focused and orderly manner.
On the music side, I did a "duty roster" arrangement for my song. The song is a revision of In Another Life which I will probably now call "I Knew You" instead. What this involves is making a chart of when the various voices are heard. I have four voices (or parts): rhythm, guitar, male vocal, and female vocal. There is no actual melody yet, but I have some ideas of how I want the piece as a whole to function.
I also did a report on David Scott Diffrient's book, M*A*S*H about the television series in the context of popular culture. This was a project that had daunted me, but honestly, it wasn't that hard once I did it.
