I'm Just a Guitar Playin' Girl

I'm a freshman in college, studying to become an elementary teacher. I just got a brand new Martin guitar that I'm extremely proud of. I love to read and listen to all types of music. I love my dogs, and I miss them now that I'm at college. I love to read and of course, write.

I Hate Reading

No, I really don't hate reading, I just hate reading textbooks. Textbooks are dry, boring, and tedious, and I have to read them, which makes it all the more fun. My last semester was easy peasy compared to this semester. I didn't really do a lot of reading last semester for my classes, I didn't really need to. However, this semester is completely different, much, much, much more reading.

Summer is coming up, well not for a few months, but that gives me plenty of time to work out on the bowflex that has moved into the empty room in my apartment. I'm going on a cruise this summer in the Caribbean which means swimsuit, which means I need to get in shape. The bowflex moved in this past weekend, and I started working out Monday. There's an exercise routine that I'm following and I work out for 45 minutes, 5 days a week. So hopefully I'll be seeing some results soon, because I'm really feeling it.

I had my guitar lesson today. I've got a project song called Windy and Warm. There's been versions done by Chet Atkins and other people. It's just instrumental and it's really hard. There's definitely going to be a lot of practicing going down.

What I'm Listening To: Ok well I'm not really listening to anything new, but on the way home tonight I was listening to a great Irish band called Dervish. I don't think that they're doing anymore touring, but they were one of the first bands that I ever saw in concert. They were brought here through NPR and Our Front Porch. Thank goodness for NPR!
