Not that I’m counting…

…but I have 15 days of school left. Sixteen if you count my contract day on the 4th of June.

Honestly, I don’t know how I feel about it. Glad, I guess (you can be sure the students are). But what’s in store for me in the summer? Some good things — great, actually — and some not so good:

  1. 5 June: Going to Columbus for the day with Hannah and New Grandson, so she can attend a series of meetings and still have the baby nearby for when he gets hungry. A whole day, almost uninterrupted, with New Grandson and his great aunt Mavis…joy. Good.
  2. 21-26 June: On the faculty for the Heartland Vocal Camp for Jazz & Pop Singers at Tiffin University. Should be great fun — a week of working with young pop/jazz singers, and singing with a hot band every night. No suckage there. Good.
  3. 13-15 July: Speaking at the Nebraska American Choral Directors Association conference at Doane College, near Lincoln. Mighty fun. Good.
  4. Every other available minute: studying. Um…not so good.

I always gotta go and ruin it, don’t I?

Fink, stressed

PS – text message from Hannah: doc says baby can arrive any day now. That’s a good thing!

I can tell you that I’m personally glad to have survived through my first year of teaching. I am glad to have become a part of the community and have been able to present bands with class. It has been great to work with you and will only get better as I have more time (and prior knowledge) with which to plan for the oncoming year(s).

RE: Being the “new guy” is never easy… Someday, Madame RF should regale you with tales of my first year at AHS… make sure there’s plenty of therapeutic chocolate and/or alcohol…

You need to scrape some of that studying off your plate and make room for the Godfather Part III! (if you can that is)

Seniors only have 6 days left unless you count exams. Then we have 8 days. I am pumped! Did I tell you about my scholarship?

I know better than that… you’ll have it figured out in NO time… But I still like the district-financed trip to the Big D :-)
