Stress Relief

I'm done!  Hallelujah!

There is this amazing feeling of relief that comes every year after UIL is finished.  I think it is because we just get used to living with this amazing amount of pressure and stress that we don't even realize it.  I'm trying to think when it starts and I think probably mid-February when the choirs start getting rehearsed by other directors.  The tension and pressure stays through Pre-UIL, Spring Break and just builds in intensity until UIL day.  And then just like that it is gone.  You can actually feel the waves of stress leave your body.  What a strange and wonderful feeling.
