Hey guys! How are you all?? Yes, I still exist. You guys can’t get rid of me that easily!…*nervous laugh*
Anyway, before moving on to what this post is about, I’d like to thank everyone who has been viewing my blog for the past month. Thank you so much, guys! And if you are a new follower, hey there! Welcome to my first blog post in forever! *awkward silence*
Also, I have some good news guys…. I now have 614 followers!!!!!! Yay!!!! Again, thank you so so much for following or continuing to follow my blog guys, especially when I wasn’t active. And yes, to answer the burning question, I will be posting more often from now on. I’m not sure how often yet, but definitely at least one post per week. I haven’t been able to read anything apart from one book we had to read for English class (which was really great by the way, it’s The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga, and I might talk about it in one of my next posts). I’ve been wanting to start reading Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows. Have any of you guys read it? Do let me know what you think about it if you have.
Ok, enough of the intro. So, without any further adieu, let’s get into the post!
Before I say anything guys, just look at how gorgeous my new cello is. I’ll give you 15 seconds to admire.
You guys done yet? No? Ok, I’ll give you some more time. Go back to staring.
Hey..? Hello….? SNAP OUT OF IT!
How hypnotizing was that?! Believe me, all I’ve been doing since yesterday is either stare at it or think about how lucky I am while staring at it.
So, if you all have been following my blog for a while, I might have mentioned how my love for the cello began when I read the book If I Stay by Gayle Forman. It’s a great book by the way, and I totally recommend it, except don’t watch the movie or read the sequel. Ever since, I’d wanted to learn the cello so badly, but I was unable to find a cello teacher during my summer holidays, which is when I planned on learning it. When school started, I pretty much thought that there was a very little possibility of learning the cello anytime soon. But I was wrong. On orientation day, I learned that I could take individual music classes during school hours! And yes, that included the cello too! I couldn’t believe my luck!
Initially, I found it hard to fit in one cello class per week in my tight schedule. I’m not even kidding, I’ve had to cancel at least 5 cancel classes because something came up last minute. But finally, on Sept 28, I had my first ever cello class! And it was magical, until my fingers began to ache. It was a little less magical after that.
Anyway, sadly, apart from the struggle to play the cello, there’s also the struggle to find one!
Now that I have a cello of my own, there’s only the struggle of playing it, which hopefully won’t be much of a struggle after a few months. But enough of complaining, I cannot begin to explain how grateful I am for being given this opportunity. As much as how happy I was when I started going to classes, I couldn’t help but imagine how wonderful it would be if and when I could have a cello of my own. The wait was unbearable, and frightening even, due to the uncertainty that came along with it. To be honest, I wasn’t entirely sure if I’d be able to own a cello until yesterday, when I finally brought it home. When I played my own cello for the first time, or at least tried to, I realized that if you wish for something with pure desire, the universe will do anything to make that wish come true. So keep dreaming guys! And never lose hope!
And that’s your daily inspiration. 🙂
Thanks so much reading guys!
See you soon!
