My part-time education job of seven years has just been given a rather unceremonious heave-ho. As is the state of all education in Arizona, it was always somewhat precarious. Over the last couple of years though, I had been fortunate enough to receive some benefits - state retirement system, sick time, personal days, etc - of which I was able to use the bulk of before the end of this school year. I feel immensely grateful to know now, when I am already on hiatus and thus not missing the loss of paycheck, that I will likely need a different employment situation come August.
So! On to the next, right? Here's hoping "the next" means more music and playing than ever before.
