So sorry I’ve disappeared off the face of the earth. I haven’t completely went away from blogging though. It’s been something that I’ve been thinking about constantly even when I was gone. I just haven’t had the motivation to write something. And I started procrastinating…and that just resulted in me not doing it at all. Oops!! I hope you can forgive me. I’m only human after all haha Anyways, I’ve been debating on whether or not to expand my music studio. I have a very strong studio full of students and a busy schedule. I don’t really need more students in my agenda. However, I am still getting new students. And that’s great, but that has also drained my energy level. As a result, I have been putting my expansion plans on the back burner. When I woke up today, I was like “I’m not going to succumb to this anymore! I’m going to start back blogging again.” And that’s exactly what I’m doing now.
I haven’t really told many people that I have also been working on making a professional music studio website. It’s actually starting to look really good too 🙂 on the flip side, that has also been put on the back burner for awhile. Furthermore, I have been putting my collaborations on the side and I haven’t been advertising for new students at all. Ahhh…. summer vacation is really getting to me. And I was supposed to continue working on my huge incentive program that has also NOT been worked on in awhile too. Oops again!!
So what am I going to do? Well, it sounds like I just have a lot on my plate. I decided to just start small and share with you guys another edition of day in my life:
A Day in My Life (Summer Vacation Edition)
Today is a short day for me. On most days, I’ll have lots of students to teach and tons of errands to run. However, most of my students are also on summer vacation so they are putting off lessons for now. Teaching during the summer is different. You never really know what to expect. The heat is blistering and inconvenient, but teaching during the summer is also very relaxing. There aren’t that many students to teach and you have more time to watch movies. OR in my case, ignore the large amount of work I have to do.
After I finish writing this blog, I want to relax for a little bit and then get ready to go to the crafts store. I want to buy more stickers and incentives for my students’ prize bags. And then I want to go eat lunch. After that, I have a meeting with a new student and two lessons to teach. That’s pretty much what today looks like for me. So… this day in the life is not too exciting. I buy stickers and other toys to fill in my students’ prizes. They earn a prize like this after completing their star chart.
That’s what their star chart currently looks like. For each song or good behavior, they get to color in a star. Once all the stars are colored, they earn a big prize. Pretty simple. I’ve given out about 10 prizes already 🙂 #proudteachermoment
If I’m feeling even more ambitious today, I’m going to work on work stuff. However, there’s almost 0% chance of that happening. I hope you have a lovely summer day and I’ll check back with you guys soon!
