This morning I checked my e-mail only to find one of the weirdest e-mails I’ve ever gotten in my life: my hair stylist forwarded me an e-mail from some guy named Pete, who was telling him that I should play with some group called “Coloma Strings.” I Googled this guy’s name and discovered he is the french horn instructor for Sac State. Again — WTF? French horn instructor? Why does he know who I am? Or care? Also, how did my hair stylist get involved in finding me a group to play with? I’M SO CONFUSED!
So, I e-mailed my teacher since she’s looking into groups for me and also since she is a student at Sac State (maybe she knows this Pete guy?) I figured to it would be best to know what the heck is going on before contacting this group. Or at least wait until I don’t care as much that I’m so damn confused.
As a side note, I’m coming down with something. 😦 This is the first time I’ve been sick since swine flu a year and a half ago. No complaints really — I used to be sick almost all the time with little more than two or three day respites before getting sick again. Still, not fun, but since I will likely not be playing my best, it’s rather good timing since I will be cello-less as of 3PM today.
