So how's that blogging every day thing working out would you say? Yeah, my first post since Sunday. This just tells me that I am completely out of the habit of blogging. I know it is something that I can get back and it is definitely something that I want to get back, but it isn't just a matter of finding the time. It's a habit that used to be formed that is now gone.
Today I have Pre-UIL. UIL for those that don't know is a major competition in the state. Think of it like music TAKS. This year has been challenging because we have lost a lot of days to shutdowns where the school takes practice tests to get ready for the TAKS test. When that happens I don't have class. We are on block scheduling so I only see certain classes every other day. Add in a day of testing and sometimes I would only see the kids once a week. It's been rough. Also add in some kids who just aren't passionate about choir. It's a class they take, but they don't want to do the work. If I didn't have my varsity group I would probably be losing my mind. Every time they walk in I have a huge smile on my face. I love working with them and they have been a joy all year. Well except for Monday when I had to yell at them, but that's what happens at the stressful UIL time.
So today is our practice UIL. It is an insanely busy day since we are taking four groups. There is something happening at either my campus or the contest campus every 10 minutes starting at 8:15 and ending at 4:10. Thankfully my principal is awesome and got us two helpers otherwise we would never make it.
And yes as you can guess I'm stressed and that is why I am awake and blogging at 5:30 in the morning. Hey at least I blogged!
