It’s been a week since I started this blog and practicing. I think I’ve made progress as my family hasn’t told me to stop playing when they are in the house. The neighbour might have slammed their window shut but that’s because I was playing late at night.
I’m sore. Need to stretch and do weights.
I know it’s all low stakes and the aim is fun, but what if I can’t keep up? Amateur musicians are still pretty good especially if they’ve been playing regularly.
What if I am that player who gets the dirty looks?
The thing is those who played really terribly in the school orchestra ended up being professionals. But they took a while to get there. Years of effort, passion and discipline.
What if all my students submit their assessments? I still have a chapter or three to rewrite. If only the technology to communicate telepathically was in existence now.
I may have to work from home as I can just pick up the fiddle when I take a break from thesis writing.
Where I’m at:
– freaking out again
-wish I had an amateur friend to join me
-an imperfect semi-tone out from perfect pitch
– a little panicky about my thesis. I will need to work solidly on Thursday and Friday
