I find this very relaxing. I am normally bombarded with noise and people at dayjob, and I hate that part of the job, every day; being too close, with too much random noise happening, makes me tense and crazy. When I look for new jobs, I always wonder if their space is quieter. I am such an introvert! If you only see me at cons, that means you've seen me attempting extroversion; I can succeed, somewhat, for a while, but it exhausts me. I could happily take classes alone in a room for a week, provided I had an internet connection now and then.
Dress rehearsal is tonight for the Rachmaninov. Looking forward to it!
