My first viola lesson was tonight. Fascinating, that.
Frankly, the instrument is so drop dead gorgeous I have trouble focusing on actually playing it. I learned very little in my allotted 30 minutes, except that I need to pay in cash and I could probably use a second job to cover my pursuits of personal enrichment. Also, we discovered that I am sort of double jointed in the thumb region and have a tendency toward locking my pinky rather than curving it.
I'm bored without homework. It's gnawing at me. I wish I was in a writing class just so I'd have something to focus my attentions on. Furthermore, instructors should not charge $1 a minute for their time. It's rude.
