Back in the Sabbatical Saddle

That's right, I'm on sabbatical.  Again.  We are now two days into September and all of the local schools have started the new academic year.  Every department store have 'back to school' specials, the supplies are flying off the shelves at all the stores, and even the leaves are starting to turn.  It's my favorite time of year, yet I feel so ... ... ... left out.  I want new notebooks, highlighters, folders, binders, pens, pencils, a locker combination, and an orientation, too.

The only way I am going to get through this school withdrawal is to start the graduate school search.  Along with that comes the test prep.  Considering the deadlines are usually January or February, I have my work cut out for me.

So here is my list of things I need to accomplish within the next year:
  1. Go to Ireland  (Every good sabbatical requires a trip somewhere.)
  2. Finish my memoir (Every good sabbatical also requires the completion of a book)
  3. Write some songs
  4. Record a studio album with some of those recently written songs
  5. Play gigs to sell that album with all of those recently written and recorded songs
  6. Find some intriguing graduate programs
  7. Apply to those intriguing graduate programs
  8. Prep for the MAT and/or GRE
  9. Take the MAT and/or GRE
  10. Make my family so incredibly sick of having me around that they won't mind if I find a graduate program out of the state. . . or . . . country?!
May the sabbatical begin... again!!!
