Closing out Nya Studio

Today was my last class at Nya Studio.  As of 1/31 Nya Studio is no more.

Nya was formed by Zabel Belly Dance and myself partnering to open a studio together for our part-time businesses.  We shared this studio for 4 years.  Nya stood for Not Your Average Studio.  Because where would you find Belly Dance and CPR Instruction in the same place... but not at the same time?

The last Belly Dance class was this past Wednesday.  Zabel will be teaching on a reduced schedule in Rochester.

My last class was today.  I am branching out on my own and moving to 861 Lafayette Road #7 in Hampton.  I am hoping a few friends will join me in the space.  I am not expanding to teach full-time.

My first class in the new space is a private class on February 2nd.  The regular class schedule will begin on Monday February 5th.  A grand opening party will be planned for later this Spring.

Irritated 1.11.18

I put the date in this post because at some point I'll probably write another post and want to call it Irritated.  With a date there is no confusion.

This is a bit of a vent, but I'm tired, irritated, miffed, sad, and overwhelmed.  Words starting going through my head and I always find it best just to write them all down.   So here is my vent.

I volunteer with a number of different organizations.  They are things that interest me or benefit my kids, which is why I do it.  At one point I was doing a lot of volunteering, and a lot of volunteer work.  Over the past year or so my life became a lot busier.  My business is growing, my kids have activities I need to transport them to/from, and I started doing a few things just for me.  Like walking and hiking.  And I began to read more.  It's really helped my stress levels.

Because I'm busier I asked some fellow volunteers to help out more so I could do a little less.  Not huge things, but to help share the load.  But what…
