Had a meeting with my pal Stoney yesterday. We pretty much got September’s rehearsal schedule done. By the time I left for home, it dawned on me: summer’s really over; time to think about getting serious.
The second half of this summer has been fabulous (first half, not so good, but hey – everything happens for a reason). I’ve spent time with the grandchildren, my friends, and my awesome fam. For the first time in many years, I’ve taken time to enjoy myself over the summer, instead of being chained to this box twelve hours a day, doing research and writing papers. Icky.
One more semester of that nonsense, and I am done. I will never take another grad course as long as I live. (That’s the plan, anyway.)
So for the next two weeks, I’m heavy into score study, transcriptions & transpositions, and updating choir tour accounts. I plan to hold down the sofa for the weekend and work on the laptop. Sounds like fun, eh?
To the people with real jobs: it’s almost Friday.
