Rudolph, the red bass guitar

I'm taking a break from homework and thought I'd catch up on my blogging. It's been difficult these last couple of weeks to stay on top of everything, and I'm trying not to put undue pressure on myself to post as regularly as I had originally planned. I'm so overbooked as it is and this is meant to be a fun hobby, after all.

Speaking of fun hobbies and overbooking myself, I've started up on bass again. I had put that on hold for awhile due to my chronic arm pain, but I'm getting better at managing that, and so far, I haven't experienced any problems when playing. This is very good news... I've missed practicing my favorite songs and being able to jam with K.

I watched "Juno" last weekend and I thought it was an interesting coincidence that Juno mentioned her ideal set of adoptive parents to be "a thirty-something graphic designer with a cool Asian girlfriend who kicks ass on the bass guitar" and that she had named her guitar, "Roosevelt." Sometimes I wonder whether those kinds of coincidences are the universe's way of directing you or if those references are all around you all the time and that you only notice them when you are thinking about them to begin with. Hmmm... before I start to talk about the law of attraction and get all Oprah on you, I'd better get back to my homework.

A shot of my bass, "Rudolph"... yes, I know... I can be a little too hipster-precious sometimes.
