Tomorrow is Pre-UIL. For those non Texas music folk that is a practice contest where we jump through all the hoops that we will go through in April for the real, big deal, high stress choral contest. This day is stressful in its own way because instead of stretching out the stress over two days we jam it all into the space of 8 hours and 5 choirs.
I was doing ok until this morning when I got to work and all of a sudden my stomach took a left turn. It's been in and out of knots ever since. I'm stressed and I think it is making me tired. I felt ok when I left school at 5ish but by 7 tonight I was seriously dragging. Smart people would say, well then hey you should go to bed early since tomorrow is a big day, but I already know if I go to sleep now I'll wake up at 3 a.m. because of stress.
Also I'm fighting to stay healthy because everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, at work is sniffling, sneezing, coughing and generally miserable. I have too much to do to get sick.
