    I finished the first section and got a final cost of Linseed oil on the top and sides. Today it rained almost all day, so I didn't start the next section.

    I am in Catalunya! Have been for a few days. I don´t feel like I want to spoil my experience by attempting to make an account of all that has happened, public here. More will come later.

    Thanks!

    My dad asked me to drive halfway across the country to deliver a broken printer (strange story), then on the way back I got stuck in a traffic jam for 1.5 hours, a unique way to drive a long distance alone for the first time

    I auditioned for the Hawkes Bay Youth Orchestra today, a step up from the Training Orchestra.
    Much to my surprise, they put me straight in without the conventional period of transition!

    Well done!
    Music begins where words leave off. Music expresses the inexpressible.

    I play the viola - but it's only my second year, which is why I was so surprised. You're meant to be Grade 5 to get in!

    Beautiful instrument.
    They have clearly seen your talent; doubly well done!

    What has happened in my life is that my summer has ended - and a new season of classical music is about to begin. There are of course thousands of posts that I've missed, but I hope to see soon how the most important topics have developed: 1) has the 4'33" issue finally been resolved? 2) how many great Saturday symphonies do I need to catch up on? 3) did Albert finally get a date?

    After a long, tedious debate, we finally arrived at unanimous consensus that 4'33'' is not music, but in fact a type of fish. This discovery revolutionized not just ichthyology, but biological classifications in general.

    The whole forum is basically his harem at this point.

    You being Estonian, I wish you had said "Aitäh" instead... means basically "WTF" or "Huh?" in Finnish
