the good thing is that this is how it used to go every day and now this is the first time it's gone this way this semester.
since I never really got into the swing of things this week I am working most of the weekend, taking only Sunday off. there should be baseball Sunday, yes?
after trying to teach and trying to read and not succeeding very well at either I came home and learned the major and minor pentatonic scales. I don't know the names of the notes I'm playing but I know what the patterns look like. I've fallen behind on the call-out-your-notes-as-you-play-them program I adopted and adapted from jetgirl23. but the pattern I can play pretty fast now! very exciting. now I could go into GuitarCenter and play little riff snippets as though I knew what I was doing. not that I can afford to buy any more stuff.
for about five minutes I even cranked up both amps and serenaded the neighbors with some power chords. then I got self-conscious and plugged the headphones back in. piano guy never seemed to have that problem. I don't know why I care if anyone hears me. I play better guitar than he played piano and I can sing better too.
I talk about piano guy in the past tense because he must have moved or given up music as I haven't heard from him in months.
