Okay folks. We know a lot of people with blogs. It's our time now. If I can make a prediction: Hannah and I will post about wildly different things, in wildly different styles. She's a better writer than I, and she also thinks these type of things through more than I do.
Anyways... back to my first post.
As many of you know, I quit my hotel job (finally) about a month ago. I am teaching cello lessons in 3 different parts of NC, and I have been doing a lot of playing. I hated my job with a passion that I was unaware of until I left. I just got another part-time job this week. Apparently, it takes a while for a private cello teacher to attain true, real financial stability. I will be the A.M. counter person/barista/smiley morning person at the Delicious Bakery. I can't wait. I love coffee, and they make the best damn cakes I've ever tasted! There is no "dress code," there is no stuffiness, there is only cool, hippyish bakers, tasty treats and coffee.
In the meantime, I've rekindled my interest (obsession) with detailed, effective practicing, I've done a lot of dog-walking, and I've made a batch of Amber Lager with my friend Matt (we're bottling on Sunday!!). I've also done quite a bit of lazing around. I'm pretty far along in Metroid Prime, I've read a few books, and I've had time to read about 1,000 blog posts (hence the blog).
So, here's to actually attempting to maintain a blog, and to staying busy, and to enjoying my life now that there is no more stupid job that I hate involved.
Oh, and here's a video of insane cello playing, courtesy of Rostropovich.
