I have no idea where to begin. I got back to Vancouver after a relaxing 2 weeks back in SK, and I just want to crawl under the covers of my bed and read a book for the next month. Why? Because there’s SOOO much to do. I don’t know where to begin…
First, and most important, there’s my recital on April 21st. Exactly 3 weeks today. My accompanist and I have had 1 rehearsal. And I haven’t even started memorizing my pieces. And my Spanish is barely pronounceable. Oy.
I might be getting a whole other day of voice students.
My boss wants me to work with my client Alison for 20 hours/week instead of 12.
I have to learn a new duet by the 16th for a performance in Surrey. And my recital’s five days after that.
I just got cast as one of the evil stepsisters in our summer opera, “Cendrillon”. I’m really happy about getting the role, but it means that I’m going to miss a bunch of my sister’s graduation weekend. In my defense, the auditions said the opera would be held the 3rd weekend of June, not the 4th weekend.
I have no idea where I’m going to be this summer.
I wish people would quit asking me what I’m going to do after I’m done school at here.
I wish people would quit asking me whether I’m going to stay out here.
I’ve still got to meet requirements for my job, including getting a Class 4 license.
And I didn’t get paid today. Not good at all.
Yes, I know that I’m complaining. And I shouldn’t be when 2 months ago I would have killed for being this busy. But I am slowly starting to realize that I can’t run at full tilt all year, every year. There’s got to be a balance. Whereas in January I was at one end of the spectrum, I am completely at the other end now. But yet I have no idea what to do about it.
It’ll all be good. It has to be!
