Guess what I got this week?
If you guessed an oboe, you would be correct. Just some information: I already play a plethora of different instruments, including the flute, the viola, the piano. But our school has been without an oboe player for a while now, and finally they realize that they need an oboe player (see, they were going to make me pay to rent an oboe from the school, but now they've broken down and just given it to me). It makes my heart super happy :)
Oboes are double reed instruments, like a bassoon. In fact, I prefer to think of an oboe as the love child of a bassoon and a clarinet. It just seem romantic. I suppose the bassoon would be the guy. Oboes are way different from the flute. Some of the fingerings are similar, but they're not exactly alike.
But I am just so freaking excited to learn oboe. *happysigh*
In other news, my ex-boything gave me a ride home today. It was uneventful. I keep hoping he'll ask me to formal (that's next weekend), but I don't think he will. See, we dated for about two months or so, and he broke up with me right before finals. He was all "I'm just not feeling it anymore. Let's just be friends." I cried for about five minutes, then decided friends is a good thing and got over it. But the thing is, I still care about him in more than a just-friends sort of way. And this kid smells SOOOOO good. I've never had a boything that smelt as good.
Then the other day he had himself a little cry-fest in the orchestra room after school in front of me and one of my girlfriends. He was all like "I have cancer! I have a tumor! I may not be able to have children!" And while it was sad and stuff, I don't know why he had me sit there and hold him like he was two. I mean, he said he didn't like me anyway. And then before he left, he hugged me and whispered "I'm sorry." And I'm left to wonder: What the hell were you sorry for?
So, nerdfighters, if you could help me figure out what this kid is sorry for, that would be greatly appreciated. I don't understand boys. Advice is also nice :)
