School has restarted. This year I am involved in leading a strong ensemble group. This group consists of students who are somewhat more skilled, and we have to perform in a few of the year end events. It is difficult to herd kids. We are practicing Pachelbel’s Canon, and I am surprised how difficult this piece is for them. I did not realise the rhythm changes were far more complex than anything they have come across. I should have known jumping from half notes to 1/8ths was no walk in the park.
Coaching wise, I am applying to be a coach at BetterUp. My experience as a Bravely Pro has been positive. I enjoy the variety of clients I get to work with.
I am reading fiction more regularly. I am also playing the Switch a bit more. Both pulls me into a slightly different reality, which helps settle me.
Lastly, my daughter is officially a teenager. The feeling of loss and nostalgia is strong. I am surprised.
