Hey! Hey guys! I’m still here!
I’ve been a tad busy. School. Work. Repeat.
I feel bad. I totally meant to blog a lot more often when I started this blog, and I was doing really well, but then…
Anyway, I will be better about this.
One of the reasons I was so busy was because of music. I play the violin. I love it. It’s a lot of fun for me and even though I’ve been playing for about 11 years, it still challenges me so I don’t get bored.
Worse maybe. Bored no.
But anyway. I was asked to be in an opera (of sorts), over Halloween weekend. When I say ‘of sorts’ it’s because this was an opera, but it was also a rock show.
It was actually a lot of fun. It’s called Deep Love and the authors (writers? What do you call those who have written an opera?) are hoping that it will one day be huge. I think they will succeed on that.
So opera, opera, opera. Three nights in a row, I was made up to look dead and then I played my violin for two hours. Fun, no? Yeah, it was.
But, hold on to your hats everyone. I played in ANOTHER opera (this one an operetta) a week later. Well, like 4 days later.
That one was for school. It was Gilbert and Sullivan. It was a lot of fun. My mom came to see it. So did my grandparents. That was even more fun.
My grandma was so funny. During intermission, I went down to the audience to see my family and say hey. (That in itself was fun. Now that I’m in college, I don’t have a lot of people come see my performances. But to have like half a row taken up by just people who came for me was great.) I had made a few mistakes during the first half of the concert and I was kinda embarrassed because they were not mistakes I should have made.
Me being me, I just straight up asked if anyone could hear any of the mistakes I had made. My grandma replied with, “Oh, I didn’t hear any mistakes. I think you are playing perfectly.”
Ha. Thanks grandma. I truly did appreciate that comment, but I thought it was really funny that she replied that way, I guess because it seemed so cliche.
So there you have it. I have not blogged in a while because I have been buried in the pages of the opera. But now I am free. And will return….right after Monday. When I have two exams. Back to back.
