How did you sprain your hand? Are you still able to play? What will you do?

Hi Elizabeth, I've been told I should stop playing for 4+ weeks. If I persist to play until my auditions are over the healing time is supposed to double. I'm trying to mental practice and take things slowly and easily. Playing is incredibly painful right now.

I smacked my hand on a chair, can you believe it?

Emily has an interesting mind, has had a different sort of life experience from most of us, and brings to the various different topics in her blogs a somewhat unique perspective. Hopefully, you also will get lots of comments about your blog entries.

Kelsey!!! That's horrible about your hand! And it couldn't have happened at a worse time, either. Are you able to reschedule any of your auditions because of your injury? It would be a shame if you couldn't present your full ability. But perhaps they will be understnading and be able to hear past it. Which hand was it?

PPS I don't know why people like to post on my blog. But I'm glad they do.

PPS It helps to be a regular on the site, since people tend to be more interested in the thoughts of those who they interact with on a regular basis.

PPPPS It also helps to regularly spam other people's blogs with multiple posts, because it's good karma.
