I'm only one day into it, and the semester is already back in full force. Seven hours of teaching, followed by four hours of listening to auditions at the college...all I can say is, I'm glad I was so lazy over the summer, because I really don't feel too wiped out yet. Ask me the same question in December, I suppose, but so far, the sailing is smooth.
But the best part of it all was just how fun teaching was today. I certainly hope the sheer volume of it won't dilute that feeling as the year goes on; days like today remind me of why I do what I do in the first place.
