I’ve been so busy. Not a lot of time to come here to reflect… well, more like I feel that I should be checking off things on my to do list rather than reflect.
But reflection is good for me. Especially a written one so that I can remember what I’ve decided to do.
Anyways.. work is hard. Simply because I don’t have enough time. I need time to get things done. Usually by the end of the day I’m pretty exhausted and don’t feel like doing anything much. I can’t wait till next week when we have break. A FULL WEEK. I will probably try to catch up on work then though.
Recently I’ve subbed for someone for a musical. It was nice to just play some music. I miss it so much. Every week when I get to play in chamber music or in my lesson.. I leave feeling so refreshed and happy.
I need to balance my time better.
Anyways.. the kids at school are somewhat coming along. I feel happier seeing how kids are slowly correcting their bow holds. I wish I could just do open string songs for awhile. Then when we work on fingerings, they don’t have to worry too much about what their bow hands are doing.
I also think it is good for me to start keeping my records on paper. All of my records are digital. I’m starting to think that digital records are too hard for me. Even with a touch screen surface–I just don’t have the right applications to take attendance and give points out efficiently.
Anyways.. time to leave Summerdale now. I have a pile of work to do still–but I’m getting pretty sleepy. I’ll wake up tomorrow morning early so I can get back to hacking away and making the shoulder foams…
Next year though… I either need to make the foam earlier or require that everyone gets shoulder rests. I like the car wash foam–I just wish it wasn’t as expensive. I need to go to Fabrics r Us to buy more 1 in foam…
