Big things are happening to me right now,
but more importantly I want to talk about music.
I am on spring break and trying to enjoy every second of it, cramming in all the things I've been wanting to make and do but didn't have the time for.
I made a silent promise to my professors that I would practice everyday while on my vacation, which isn't to hard because it's fun! Every morning I wake up at 5am snatch my sheet music and my classical guitar and begin to start playing, followed by some singing practice when I've eaten my breakfast, soon after that is piano practice and then lastly studio guitar in the afternoon. I know it's a rigorous morning routine, but I enjoy doing it and have noticed my playing starting to slowly improve . Mainly the reason why I practice so early is because I have morning classes at around 9am, and so I try to practice as much as I can before those classes.
But with this free time I am able to play my ukulele, which I feel like I haven't played in forever! I've searched some songs to play and might possibly do a cover on my youtube channel when I have the time. If anyone hasn't seen Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart you really need to! That film has some of the BEST songs to cover on your ukulele!
Funny just yesterday that I stumbled upon these wise words of wisdom in my intermediate guitar book written by my studio professor who is the best teacher around. I find this very refreshing and encouraging to my brain, because sometimes I feel like I can't keep up with some of the studies in class, then to hear "Don't be in a hurry" is the best thing ever in those situations, though it mustn't be confused with procrastination.
As I was saying in the beginning, I have many exciting things going on right now in my life. One is my 20th birthday in April, when I will be saying goodbye to my teen years forever and entering into the world as a full blown adult. The other is my idea for a class/workshop coming together so beautifully! I've contacted some ladies at my church, who liked my idea for a beginners jewelry workshop in the summer. Lastly is the Madame Ink shop receiving it's very own business cards and having my artwork made into postcards.
So having all this activity on my plate at the moment may seem tiring at times, still I am very grateful for it all!
