Gosh, yes it is already Sept. 15th. Two weeks into school already. How come I have this feeling that the year is going to be gone and I'll be wondering what happened?
I'm reading 1984 by George Orwell right now. What an amazing writer! I've read Animal Farm before and last year had to do some analyzing of some of his essays. The guy really knows what he wants to say and how to present it and make it be effective. When you read his works they stick with you. I can still remember that famous quote from Animal Farm "all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others" He really has a profound way with words and making things make sense. Right now I'm trying to pick another novel to read when I'm done 1984. I have to do a novel study/presentation and I get a month to do it so I'm trying to decide on a couple to read and pick from. I don't get tons of spare time to read these days but I'm still going to try!
Yesterday was a really productive day for me musically and school wise. I got a bunch of my homework done and managed to in between teaching and doing some shopping and going to school I still got over 4 hours of practicing in! Yay! I got through my entire program for Sunday and for the most part actually worked on it and got in a good chunk of technique practice. When I got home last night my brain felt like mush.
Well that said, it's lunch time and I still have a class this afternoon and a whole stack of homework to do and some practicing to get done.
