This dusty ol' thing hasn't seen the light of day in a while... and laying here in my bed, scanning through our several conversations, I thought I would just say "hi."


No more posts. The end.

This is going to be my last post for a while. Not that there are a ton of people that visit this blog (cause there aren't). But I'm so focused on music right now. I just don't do this kind of thing anymore. When I have free time I'm @ home practicing, listening to music, or trying to learn more about it. (That is of course if I'm not chilling with friends or riding my bike). I know that it sounds like something I should have been doing all along.

And I was. I've been practicing clarinet since I was twelve. But...recently I got this burst of inspiration and a strong need to put all of myself into art. And right now I'm exploring every single angle of music I can. I'm going to more concerts than I can keep track of. I'm constantly discovering new things in music. Right now is such an exciting time. Unfortunately, I just don't feel the need to share it in this blog any longer. This blog has taken some hard bouts of neglect from its authors in the past. Currently neither author is posting on it very much. I've lost interest in doing this. So I'm not shutting down this blog just yet. But I don't plan on posting any further for a long time. Sorry Gwenn! I love you and I'll still check out your blog. But I think it's hasta la vista el blog for a while if not forever.


Been a while...

So things have been busy and sometimes I forget why I even started a blog. I was so into it...I don't know what happened. Lately I've had one thing after another. This weekend is the first break I've had from anything. Everyday, even weekends, I've been preparing for recitals, concerts, auditions, competitions, boards, rehearsals, on and so forth. I also had weekend classes and tons of other commitments. It happens. I loved it and hated it.

I guess the only way I could cope with all the tremendous demands I had to meet was to isolate myself, practice as much as I could, devour reeds like four year old with a Chocolate bunny three days before Easter (I used to dig in my grandmother's pantry before big holidays), and exercise A LOT.


Oh Vlady

I LOVE Vladimir Ashkenazy's shirt. In fact, I want it. I want to know where he got that kickass shirt. I love Sibelius and that shirt is just SO COOL. Have I mention yet how much I like this shirt?


This kid is so lucky because:

When I was his age (5 yrs old) I didn't even know what a clarinet was. And to be honest, I didn't even know what one looked like till I was 11. Anyway, I think it's great that youngsters are being exposed to music.



Spring Break was great! It was everything I wanted it to be and more. I spent a majority of my time either taking long walks for miles and miles outdoors, playing x-box with my brother, catching up on cable programming from the past year and a half, hanging with my OKC/ Norman friends, long talks with family members.

It was great. One of my favorite moments was on a long walk through the Faircloud trails with my dad. Faircloud is the edition my parents live in and my dad showed me a secret path I'd never seen before. I must have road past it a million times on my bike or roller blades during the 12 years I lived there and I ALWAYS missed it. And it's not really too hidden. It was about 7am and we were talking about different things...and I just remember how good it felt. My dad has lost a lot of weight. I'm SO proud of him. SO has my mom. But she's ALWAYS looked fantastic in my opinion. And my opinion is right when it comes to my beautiful mother. Anyway, it was the best time I've ever had with my family. I'm really glad I went home instead of to the Golan Heights in Israel, surprisingly enough.

But the best part about leaving it all behind and coming back to school is my comfy warm bed...the one thing I missed in OK was good sleep.
