i really feel lost and would appreciate some opinions please! i have finished 7 years of music school when I was 14 in moscow, then we moved to Lebanon and I stopped piano all together. Until last year (almost 20 years later) dh encouraged me to enroll in national conservatoire here and continue. I was accepted (after much much practice) as 7th year student there. So I still have 7th and 8th and a year where I should prepare major concert to graduate. I have been studying all this year, along with the courses and now my exams are on 6 and 7th of July. In the middle of the year I had to fly to Japan to defend my phD in neuroscience and also am pregnant and my duedate is near the exams date somewhere . All this and plus two homeschooling kids contributed to less time left for the piano practice. So my question is should I really stress myself now and try to finish the program (which is huge) in three weeks, or I better take it easy and forget it until the next year? what would you do? thankx a lot!
it's just 3 weeks? Try to finish.
Can someone else watch your kids for most of that 3 weeks? Hire a sitter, beg favors from friends? Put your DH in charge of all cooking, cleaning, laundry?
but everything has pros and cons
ladies thank you for the advice! i will try to practice some now as the kids are asleep.....dh's aunt is coming in a couple of days and she can take care of the kids.....it's not only the lack of time you know? it's just becoming so stressful for me the whole idea that i won't finish by time........and sometimes this stress goes into my family....impatience with the kids etc....
