Once again there's a list of tasks not finished and measures not taken, but out of the last few years, this one does feel more productive in that forward moving kind of way. Believe it or not, I've actually been less neurotic and generally happier. So far, at least. Why is it that October always feels like the end of the year? As soon as October rolls around, that's it, done. It won't be like that as a teacher, and for that I am grateful.
Today has had that slow creeping feeling I associate with Spring. It's when I start waking up earlier, so there are more hours in the day, and there's a glowing warmth but calming breeze. I've been organising my computer again, since it's managed to get into disarray. I am far more anal about organisation on my computer than anything else. I have a complete pile of papers on the floor, another pile on my table - a stack of CDs lazily overhanging the side - but my computer has a carefully labelled folder for everything. See, I am a perfectionist, just in my own little strange way.
Which reminds me, I need to decide on the song(s) I want to do for the end of year concert. Any suggestions? I'm a soprano and I want to do something relatively upbeat. I was thinking Beatles, but I don't want to do one of the ones which has been done to death ('yesterday'). There is, of course, the restriction of needing the track to learn to and possibly coerce other people into learning.
