So....I haven't written in quite awhile. We're moving in a week and so I'll not have the computer hooked up to the internet for 3-5 days. OH NO HOW WILL I GET MY V.COM FIX!!???
I'll probably be dead tired anyway.

I'm debating on whether to write my long blong now and post my audio, or go practice before I loose


(Anyone else have to have a specific 'atmosphere' to practice in? Somehow I don't like to practice in the late afternoon with the golden light coming in the window. If I go in the living room where there aren't really any windows and use artificial light, it is fine...that's so weird. I dont' like practicing when it is daylight! Unless I'm in a room, like a practice room at the college, or a dungeon :) and can't see it. ??????)

I have to practice in one corner of my room. My practice corner. I don't prefer any specific time of the day, but recently I haven't been able to get a good practice in without playing Bach's Prelude suite no 1 for unaccompianed cello, transposed for violin. Though it does sound a bit shrill, I love it and it sounds much better when I ignore my teacher and play open strings to let them ring and have a fuller sound. he he.
