That title didn't sound that good... lol. Well, I'll explain. A few days ago I shared an image on Facebook that said "I have a meaningful relationship with my violin." and although it's entirely true, at the moment I'd say is more like a "...painful relationship...". And why? Well because it is physically painful lol, which is a normal thing at first, so I was told. My body,that is, arms, hands, neck and shoulders, need to adjust to this new posture and I also need to relax a bit more, which is something people don't do at the beginning. I keep thinking to myself: "the violin is not going to fall down and the bow is not going to slip through my fingers", my brain knows this, but apparently my body is ignoring me.
Apart from the still painful part, it's a lot a fun and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I need lots and lots and lots of practice and as weird as it might sound I never let a day go by without practicing. Unfortunately I can't practice as much as I'd like, because of what I wrote above. My teacher told me that as soon as it starts hurting or if I start to get too tense I should stop immediately, relax for a while and then come back.
I don't think it would be necessary to say this but I can't wait for next class lol. I sound like a little kid...
So it wasn't exactly by the end of that week that I started my new "activity", it was 2 weeks later (I think). I've found a "new passion" in my life. And no, it's not what you might think... just look at the pic below :)
I've always wanted to learn to play a musical instrument as well as reading music, but for some reason or another I never did. However, I never gave up hope that one day I would. I guess the time has come... I have this violin for at least 10 years, it was missing a string, it had to be fixed (I'm not going into details), it needed a new case and now it's as good as new. As for the learning part, it's everything but easy and although the sound isn't exactly what we call music (yet), I fell in love with it, if that's even possible. It became a vice, in a good way :)
Anyway, I'll try to keep this blog updated, now that I have this new "occupation" lol.
I've been a little sloppy regarding this blog. I've been so busy with my other blog and everyday's life that I haven't had much time in my hands lately. Also I haven't been feeling quite inspired on writing anything. But I'm making an effort hence this post. I'm sick again and that doesn't help either...
Hopefuly by the end of this week my inspiration comes back (Where the hell is my muse???) and I'll be able to write more. Why? Well... I'll post about it in a day or two, but lets just say I'm going to start on a new..."activity" lol.
I'll be back soon :)
First of all, Happy New Year!
I have a feeling that this year is going to be GOOD, I'm going to do everything I can to make it that way. In this past year lots of things changed and although sometimes things weren't easy, I don't think I'd change a thing. I am sure this year of 2013 will bring even more changes, I don't know in what way but it will.
The year of 2012 made me realize a lot of things and one in particular: I love life itself with all its ups and downs! It's hard to explain this, it needs to be felt... and it is an amaizing feeling.
What will 2013 bring? We'll see...
I've been sick for a few weeks, but fortunately I'm fine now (I hope). Apart from being sick I've also been busy. But I feel I need to get back to things I enjoy doing, I have ponies to finish, ponies to custom and so on. However I haven't been feeling inspired to do those things at all, plus I need to tide up some stuff too and I don't feel like doing that either. In fact I don't feel like doing much lately... I'm guessing that's because I was sick recently but still... *sigh* my muse needs to come back and fast. I need some excitement in my life!
I'll try to post more often and write much more interesting posts, these last couple of posts are a bit depressing
...And a month later here I am again. I've been busy with an event at work, which is finally OVER!!! Everything went smoothly but even so... It as been a week since the event was over and I'm still tired, plus I got a cold :( I'm thinking it was because I didn't get enough rest for the past 2 or 3 weeks, the weather didn't help much these past few days, it got cold all of the sudden.
Apart from this everything is good, it's been 2 months since my brother left for Dubai but thanks to Skype I can talk and see him almost everyday, if he's not flying that is.
I'll have dinner later on with some friends and their baby :P he's sooo cute and it's going to be a good night, with no worries lol. Speaking of which, I need to get ready or I'll be late hahaha!
I just found this on youtube. I didn't make it, but this was the show I attended and I thought I'd share ;)
It's been a while since my last post. Truth is, I've started working again and I've been a little busy with the usual stuff plus the fact that we're going to have this event next month. I'm not sure what to expect of it this year, the person in charge is sick (and I mean really sick) but even so he doesn't seem to want to stop... I just don't know, in my opinion, your health is more important than everything else. That aside, not only I'm going to be part of the reception staff, but I'll also be part of an aikido demonstration. Basically, I'll be backstage and on it, so to speak... what a choice of words lol.
This last month has been complicated, my brother left to live in Dubai, my mom... well, things haven't been easy lately. I need something... new in my life, I've started another blog, this time about music, kind of like to let people know some artist(s) that are quite unknown here. I don't know what possessed me to do it! I really want it to be a success! Apparently my friends think so and they encourage me to work on it and even help me.
I just don't know where all this is going, but something tells me that something will change, for the better) until the year is over.
Here's she is now! Almost done, but I'm still debating on how to style her hair lol. I am so happy with the ways she turned out :)
