Sirens Call

Is this labeled as an addiction? I'm just here and I have an urge to just play the violin. I really want to run my bow across the strings and draw as much sound as possible. I want to make music! I'm at work atm and all thats going through my head is : Not long to go.

Is it just monday-itis?

Yes it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are not alone! I think at it at least every 5 minutes (is this normal???)

(sorry if this sounds terribly negative) I'm "dying" at the moment because I cannot play for one week because of my final (slash word here) science exams (final of this year I mean).  Before this non practice week, I have played 5 times in 14 days... (call this nothing in my vocabulary! I am not in my normal state to do such a thing!!!)  Fourtunately had one of my best lesson ever while doing stricly nothing...  I sometimes practice my head off for much worst lessons than that one!  Anyway, this was luck only.   Everytime I am forced to do this, it takes a few weeks to fix it back and I get very MAD!

Violin brings extra pleasure in one's life but to balance things, extra suffering too... 

Well, let's say that's the joy of beeing amateur... lol

I will wish you good luck and COURAGE! 

From another one in the same boat...  (well, actually, scholar boat... and what a boat...!)


Let's try to cheer up just the same :)  It's important to keep hope!

I know how you feel when you can't play. When you finish the exam go crazy hehe :D I wish you the best of luck!! Make sure you do well :D

My day turned out pleasently unexpected.

I left work early since I managed to finish alot of my work, so I went to a friends house and we just practiced (and had alot of laughs). It went on for atleast 6 hours. Had alot of fun just playing things like Boccherni and the arival of the queen of sheeba.

That's cool!  Yes, of course I try to do my best!  That is the way of my forced violin break...

Good luck!
