Brad the Violinist?

Well, guess what I treated myself for my birfday?! Yes, I know, I gave it away in the title. I bought a brand spankin' new black violin! ^_^

I have always wanted to try my hand at playing a musical instrument and I think this is the way to go. When I was young I got a Casio keyboard for X-mas and taught myself how to play. For my young age and not having any professional lessons, I did quite well! I'm not sure what happened, but I'm sure that my attention was shifted somewhere else and I left the keyboard on the wayside. I just never picked it back up again and never felt the urge to do so. Even though I still have this yearning inside me to do something creative with music, I don't think that was the right instrument for me. Now that I'm older and wiser, I took the time to think of what would be right for me. I narrowed it down to a string instrument and almost got a guitar, but everyone chooses guitar and I don't think I'd be very good at it. So, the violin was the next choice that really stood out for me. I got an awesome deal on one, too! I searched eBay and found this really groovy black violin with tons of free extras, free set-up, and free online lessons all for a flat $55.00 with free shipping and handling!!! ^_^

I'm SO excited! I can't wait to start my lessons! I know from my previous experience that I'm not gonna be a pro overnight, but I am more than eager to give this my all. I know that I should focus my creative yearning on my writing, but I'm just not feeling it lately. I really need something else. Hopefully this and the community theater will fill that need.

Speaking of the community theater, my first day is this Thursday. I'm kinda nervous and excited to get back into this. I hope I don't make an ass outta myself. >_< I'll keep ya posted!

Ciao for now!
