Hey y’all, soooooo tomorrow is tryouts for Chamber orchestra at my high school.
I’m super super nervous since we have to sight read, and since I can’t feel my hands I have to memorize music and then watch my hands in order to play. But it’s also a blind audition so I can’t really get an exception…. plus I’m not sure if that’s fair…..
If I don’t make it into Chamber I’ll have to choose between debate 2 and concert orchestra since they’re in the same class period
I FEEL LIKE I’M GOING TO THROW UP
I marked the places where I have to shift into 4th and 7th position just in case and then I can hit the grace notes pretty well…. but still
Playing has gotten so much harder since I lost feeling in my hands and it’s been ridiculously frustrating.
Oh well, there’s nothing else I can do except to keep trying. I’ll keep you guys updated on how it goes…..
ALSO I had a doctors appointment yesterday and the neurologist told me that she doesn’t think we’re ever going to find an answer which had also been just DANDY.
I’ve got to finish eating and then practice a bit before bed.
Love y’all! -Aspen AKA The Nervous Cellist
