There are several things happening simultaneously that could be construed as evidence that the Project is starting to take root in my mind.
- Due to other commitments, my violin teacher is only going to be teaching for another month. This will give me some extra cash in the form of a tuition refund, and give me additional practice time to prepare for a clarinet exam in June. Conveniently, this turn of events will provide the cash for a pre-calculus prerequisite math course I want to take... And the required graphing calculator, too.
- I've acquired a paid proofreading gig, cleaning up a book manuscript.
- I've been improving self-discipline and concentration skills through various means, including leaving the computer switched off during music practice, and doing my reading in a straight-backed chair under adjustable lighting.
