I've been impressed with how well I've been able to go waste time. I suppose I did some good work today on stuff I need for my Suzuki guitar website, but that was after sleeping late and doing more unnecessary investigative work on cardstock. Am I really a lazy person? I used to be so driven and brainy, or at least I thought so...but now I seem to be unable to write with proper grammer, or have an attention span longer than 5 minutes. Am I burnt out from my years of crazy ambitious workaholism? Am I becoming soft in my old(er) age? Will I become less obsessed with finding the perfect patterned cardstock after the wedding is over? I hope so, these can't be the habits of a wealthy, successful baby-dancing guitar-teaching suburban housewife.

So if making invitations was not enough heartache, I really want to make my own veil. I swear, if every single person on the internet did not say it was legitmatley easy and cheap to do so, I would never attempt such nonsense. The monetary investment so far was about $10, and I'll probably buy a comb for $4 or $5. I bought plenty of extra tulle in case I screw it up, and even if I do, I suppose I can pay retail.

I sent my letter of "sort-of" resignation to Peabody. Well, not the whole school, but the Early Childhood Music department. I've spent alot of energy here and on facebook complaining about getting up so early on Saturdays, teaching classes non-stop for 5 hours, and being told to my face that even if I get enough hours, I probably will never be hired as a full time employee. In contrast, I have my slightly illegal Music Together Classes. To my surprise, it is highly profitable and very fun. I have a great group of families who LOVE class, and definitely want to continue next semester. I also make as much teaching one of those classes as about 2 1/2 or 3 Peabody classes. Of course, there is alot more work involved with my own thing: advertising, returning emails constantly, buying instruments, buying insurance, etc. Now that I'm quitting Peabody, moving to a space that is far superior than RC, working on my website, and buying liability insurance (a must have in these troubled times) I am very motivated and excited about the future of my baby-dancing career.
