NEW VIOLIN!!!!!!!!!!!!! i'm so excited! i'm also sad at the same time because i've had my old violin for what seems like forever. it's so lovely. i don't know if it's a boy or girl yet, so there is no name. the sound is so beautiful, i'm really looking forward to playing (once i get over this stupid cold). today, i went to a furniture place and got some furniture upholstery to make new shoulder rests. yay! :) tomorrow is the start to my new violin regime. wish me luck!
