10 days...

November 7, 2006 at 11:58 PM

Yesterday I didn't get as much done as I'd hoped. I was distracted by the Melbourne Cup (the horse race that apparently "Stops the Nation")... well it stopped me, and I didn't get much practice done. After a bit of work on my mum's website, I went to teach a student, where upon arriving I was told that he wasn't having a lesson because he had a cold. They had paid for the lesson the week before, so as per my arrangements with them, they've already paid for this lesson, because they didn't call me to tell me about the sickness. Annoying, as I'd much prefer to be told that there was no need for a lesson that day, because I could've stayed working at my mum's place.
In the evening, I had a couple of assignments that I needed to complete, which didn't take long, so I decided to take a night off and go play some poker. It was my first night playing with this new league, and I ended up going all in on a straight in which I had failed to see that there was a possibility of a high straight, which saw me leaving early.

Today, I'm heading into uni to practice. I've got an interview as part of a chamber music assessment, so I'll head in early and get some good practice done. Afternoon I'm working at my mum's again, and in the evening I'll probably do some more practice.

Ok, that's it for now, see you tomorrow
