So, I have these outrageous new (old) plans- are you ready?
This has been on my mind for a while but I'm finally going to do it.
Either learn accordion, teach myself fiddle (I played viola for 6 years) or somehow pick up a cello. Or all of the above! I miss having a musical instrument in my life terribly. I play guitar and have one, but it's never been the same kind of thrill the viola was for me. And, I never wanted to play viola in the first place- it was a compromise, because my parents told me I couldn't play the cello because they didn't have room for it in the car. My first desire was to play the piano, and I kind of taught myself a little on the klunker in the basement, at least with the working keys. I used to beg for lessons. Sometimes my friend who got lessons would teach me things. I was so excited when the school offered to teach us- I had my heart set on the cello. No dice. Now that I am a grown woman- I don't care how broke I am- I will find a way to indulge myself. If I had gone to a great college instead of running away, maybe I could have done more than teach myself guitar by now. I remember the day I sold my viola to make rent. :-(
That's only the beginning. I'm embracing this single life=more time thing this time around. I'm reading novels again. Preparing to start my final semester in college Bruce Lee style. By this time next year, I'll have a degree from a pretty darn well-respected school. I'll be beginning my career. Like this (see below)!
I'll prolly skip the nunchucks though.
