Yep. Pretty much every year is the same. September is spotty. October is absolutely insane. November is a chance to relax. Work keeps me super busy from mid-September to the end of October with before and after school rehearsals every day culminating in a contest at the end of October. Now I need to recover my free time, recover my shambles of apartment, recover my horrible diet, recover my non-existent exercise routine. Just recover.
