Hi. I’m back. This is potentially a good and a bad thing. The first thing I need to do is buy some food. The second thing I need to do is plan my next few weeks. I am furiously busy these next two months, and the breathlessness doesn’t stop at the end of February.
Things to do by the end of January:
1/ attend the methods course.
2/ read the readings for the methods course.
3/ write a book chapter on singing practices
4/ write a full paper for Sempre
5/ plan the music for Singers
6/ plan the February ANATS newsletter: state and National
7/ plan my singing students timetables and stuff
The things I need to do by the end of February:
8/ prepare my confirmation document
9/ present my confirmation.
10/ plan my classes for March.
11/ plan my interviews and teacher packs, send them off and prepare timetables for meetings.
Most of these require a quantity of reading and research for which I feel furiously underprepared. I am a bit of a list writer, but only for the big stuff. Day planners mean nothing. And I can see there that I have included nothing about my personal or family life. I seriously suspect I will have none. Ugh.
Time to do the food shopping.
