I Get A Re-Do!

Scrolling down the blog, I found my January post about my sucky hearing ability. This has been weighing on my mind lately, actually. I'm a music teacher! I haven't been to a loud concert but a few times in my life! My ears have lead an all-but Amish life! How could I have the hearing of a 40-something?? So I tried it again.

Your hearing rules! You're either quite young or you've looked after your ears.

The highest pitched ultrasonic mosquito ringtone that I can hear is 19.9kHz
Find out which ultrasonic ringtones you can hear!

The only explanation I have is that I have FINALLY gotten my head cleared out after much congestion - a week of Musinex-D did me good (and made me very jittery, but at least I could breathe!)
YAY! I can hear!

My ears are sorta blocked from constant sinus issues, but I, too, have the hearing of someone twice my age. Ew. I hear like an old person. Ugh.

Something I learned from you is to find joy in little things that pass your way. That's mental health. I stand in line for a job at a job fair with my former student teacher and laugh with the teacher older than me who agrees with me that we only wear these suits for funerals and interviews and have a great silent laugh at the expense of the guy who strikes out (without even knowing it )with the woman who tells him she's a flamenco dancer and responds by telling her he's never met a flamingo dancer before. Humor, like hope, is always somewhere to be found, usually where you don't expect it.
