My dad and brothers went to get staging today. We'll start work on the roof later this week I'd imagine. A friend from band was reroofing his house last Saturday and I found out yesterday that he fell off and broke at least 7 ribs :/ Well, that just makes me so confident! The poor guy plays tuba. I guess he won't be playing for while.
I miss JoeSmo, whoever he was. For those of you who don't know, he's an anonymous commenter from months ago. So Joe, if you're out there, drop a note sometime :) I really still have no idea who he is, but somehow I think it might be disappointing to find out. The mystery is better than fact. For now at least!
I practiced today! Yay. I haven't practiced for real for so long, it was SOO nice to just practice. I worked on slurs, BE (balanced embouchure), chromatics (Bill Knevitt stuff). I must be a freak. I like to practice trumpet. It is so fun.
Last night I wore one brown contact and one clear. It looked kind of weird, but what am I anyways? I should be true to myself :) Someday I need to write about my best friends/mentors. I know some incredible trumpet players, all of which have different positive aspects. They're so worth mentioning. I know a guy who could blow some players away, but he'll play third while I and another friend of mine play first. I try not to let it happen, because I know he can do a better job (and I'm sure he does too), but he's just an incredible player and teacher. WEll that's enough raving for now. I'll let you all go back to your lives.
