It has been a while and yes, I have missed you all dearly. You have asked, so I will certainly give a life update since last June's post.
July was hard. One of my dear friends died unexpectedly. When someone you have known for 24 years of your 29 years of life is suddenly no longer here, it really hurts.
August and September brought the return of a new school year. I have new curriculum, even more students, and have encountered many changes as this academic year has progressed.
In October and November I was taking two online courses to gain credits for educator license renewal in my state. They were sleep-deprived months, as I was also deep in preparation for musical auditions and rehearsals.
December and January were wonderful months. It was an equal balance of life and work, something I deeply appreciate. February, however, was a bittersweet month. You know how the saying goes: when it rains, it pours. But onward and upward, readers. There are always silver linings.
