Today I turned in all the last of my papers and projects. I took my final exam.
A gig, two rehearsals, and two concerts this weekend, then my violin jury on Monday.
32 violin lessons to teach over the next seven days...
Yes... I am taking two full weeks off from teaching.
I love teaching, but I'm tired.
Two weeks of vacation. I can't remember the last time I took a real vacation of more than a few days - or maybe a week for Christmas. And usually when I do have to take a few days off, I usually stress myself out scheduling make-up lessons for all of my students.
None of that this time. A real live vacation!
I fully expect it to be amazing.
