Now it's 2006 and I will spend the next 4-6 weeks scribbling out "05" on my assignments at school and writing "06." There are so many new things ahead for the new year and it's exciting and scary!
I'm looking forward to starting back at work this week. I have a few new students joining Suzuki groups and wanting private lessons which should be fun! I know two of the kids who will be starting and they should be a lot of fun (I hope!). They seem very musically inclined and love listening to all types of music even though they are only 4 and 6 years old. I'm looking forward to having my exam on January 21st done and over with. I have to drive a good 90 minutes to where the exam is and it's at 9:30 in the morning. That makes me rather unhappy because I should be leaving by 7ish or so in order to be there early enough to warm up and fill out all the stuff and submit my music. It's the biggest exam I have ever done music wise and it should be intense! I'm looking forward to (hopefully) going away again this summer for another immersion in music. I'm looking forward to learning new repertoire and getting back to music lessons. I'm looking forward (and am terrified) to finally start using my drivers license and getting used to driving.Ah, so many things to look forward to (and dread!) and it's not hardly 12 hours into a New Year.
The Christmas "holidays" have flown by so fast. I'm not sure they've been holidays they've just been different ways of using my time but still it's been busy. I had several gigs right up until Christmas and have been getting together with friends and family who are back for the Christmas holidays, which has been fun but suprisingly exhausting! My teachers at school would heaven forbid, want us to go without any work so I had to read an entire book do about 6-8 pages of writing on specific topics relating to the book and that's only one course! And now, I have one night to get myself on track for getting up early in the morning again instead of getting up at 10.... I'd have missed two classes by time I get to school.
Anyways. Happy New Year everyone!
P.S. I resolve to make no resolutions that I can't keep this year. ;)
