Then, using Spaceship Earth terms here, we hit a roadblock. Over the past number of weeks, I've had some extreme wrist pain, specifically when practicing my instruments, writing notes and occasionally typing. I went to the doctor, who suggested that I over-stressed my wrist and that I take a week off.
Which meant no blogging for me.
Of course, I had to do my homework and such, but as far as long-term (blog post) like typing, that wasn't going to happen. If I want my wrist to be ready for upcomming concerts and (eventually) juries, I needed to take the week off. To be totally honest, it's been a really boring week for me. I finish my homework a few hours earlier every night (since I can do that homework during my usual practice time), and without typing or writing in general, there wasn't much else to do (other than read a book or watch television).
And so we reach the 10th day of October and I'm no further than I was before. Overall though, I've made pretty good time. I have about 18 blog posts from earlier in the year to make up, meaning that within the span of about two months I wrote around 80 blog posts (plus the ones I was currently writing). That's impressive if I do say so myself. The only problem is that I'm really running out of general topics to discuss. No fear though...I'll come up with something.
Either way, I figured I would just give an update and say that yes, I am still alive. My wrist is feeling better, although I'm still supposed to take it easy for a while, but I do intend to finish up these last blog posts. If I buckle down it can't take me forever, right?
Have a magical day!
