Hellooooo breakfast! This morning I finally lugged myself out of bed about 20 minutes after my alarm went off and was really not feeling ready to take on the day. I turned on the shower and was checking my emails when I got my favorite early morning notification: class is cancelled! No conducting this morning! Yes! So I hopped back in bed and slept again for longer than I needed to but it was great to have the option. I also didn’t have my ear training class this morning because I’ve already taken my one-on-one performance midterm. That cut down my day’s obligations by quite a bit and has given me some extra time before my lesson at noon to get some articles written for work.
It’s also National No Homework Day and I think I will mostly live up to that one. I rarely have to sit myself down for hours studying or furiously pounding out a term paper as my obligations are more performance based. Either I listened to the theory lectures and understand or I don’t; either I made reeds and practiced or my jury will suck; either I practiced my trumpet for high brass or I won’t hit the partials. Technically that’s all homework but it’s not the traditional format that we all hate after all of these years of schooling. Being a music major rocks! Now to munch on jumbo rainbow chip cookies, drink my tea, and inhale some birthday cake ice cream before my lesson. Everyday is National No Diet Day for me, just when the calling comes I choose to indulge. Happy holidays!
