So I’m doing this entirely novel thing where I take whole weekends off. I don’t think I’ve done that since maybe the summer after second-year undergrad (literally ten years ago) because since then I’ve always had at-home research jobs (where I was basically terrible at keeping regular hours) or a thesis or dissertation to work on (where deadline anxiety meant I pretty much worked or at least thought about work every weekend) or summer course prep (there’s no taking weekends off in summer courses).
Also there was that one summer I took extra Latin courses and there’s also no taking weekends off when you’ve got a million pages of Apuleius to translate.
One of the things I’m trying to do with my time off is make time to go to more shows. I used to be pretty darned good about finding concerts and performances to go to on the weekends (this is a pretty good city for that kind of thing) but I got out of the habit of it in the last year when walking and standing got difficult.
But I’m feeling pretty adventurous lately. So I just need to find out where all the random organ concerts are being held these days.
