This weekend as I was having fun watching my sisters dance recital it got me thinking. I was watching some of the girl a few counts behind and thought of what I might have looked like in 5-7 grade when I didn't really care to try! hehe. But then I got thinking about something really funny and kind of interesting, a fact that I can absolutely guarantee that no one knows but my mom, (well, and my orchestra teacher I am sure! hehe) I dont even know if DH knows! So here goes- and I expect you to leave me a comment with an interesting fact about yourself! (If you get to read mine, then I get to read yours!)
So when I was about in 5th grade until about 7th or 8th grade I started violin lessons. I had been taking piano since I was in 1st grade and was sick of it and wanted to move on! My mom found me an amazing teacher! I was doing great, but then, tragically, she was killed in a car accident about 4-6 months into my lessons. After trying at least 4 other teachers, we never could find one who we liked and I could work with. So when I was in middle school my mom thought it would be a good idea to put me in the orchestra. Why she thought this was a good idea is completely beyond me! I dont think I even know how to read music, I had all my notes written on all my music etc.... Anyway, half the year went by and it was the Christmas concert. I played the ENTIRE concert without my bow ever touching my strings once! Can you even imagine?!?! What a boob! SO I think that was the point when my mom decided enough was enough, and I was only forced to play a musical instement one other time in my life, and that was when I had to learn a song on the piano well enough to get my car! hehehe!
So now it is your turn! Share a funny experience with me! I promise not to tell!
