perhaps the dumbest time for a holiday

July and August have disappeared in a flurry or work placement, study and assignments, violin practice and an exam, preparing piano students for their exams, choir concerts, choir rehearsal, NGAC stuff, contract work developing a QA manual (gah) and contract work developing information literacy/intro to research resources (excellent fun times). And now it is September and I am going to Christchurch tomorrow for two weeks for a holiday. It is perhaps the dumbest time for a holiday because I have quite a lot of assignment stuff to do so I can get the Masters finished by the end of this year. I didn’t realise the poor timing when the holiday was booked early in the year. I needed to make it fit around piano teaching, school holidays. And actually I could do with a break. Because while I’m not “working” in the traditional sense, I seem to spend just as much time doing paid and volunteer things. So I’m just going to suck it up, do the holiday, enjoy it and then when I get back I’m going to bury myself in study and get the darned things finished. I’m very ready for studying to be over. I have loved the degree but I’m tired of doing assignments. I’d rather be channeling that energy into work and writing of other kinds.
