the stories of a los angeles violinist

school day thoughts

Added on by Jordan Martone.

i'm a morning person. i very much enjoy waking up before the sun and taking my time getting ready in the morning when the world is still quiet and even nature isn't yet stirring. i'm the kind of student that likes 8am classes because i get to arrive on campus before the rush and get the best parking spot (yes, there is a best parking spot. and today, i got it. bam! i swiftly took a selfie and sent it to joe because i'm wearing jewels from him today and i wanted to brag.) i like sauntering through campus, enjoying the beauty and architecture.  

i don't, however, like my political science professor. he thinks it's funny to threaten the class with pop quizzes when we are less communicative than usual. the quizzes don't even have any value towards our grade. i checked. 

i noticed that there is a loud cricket living in the cypress water fountain that has been there for at least a week. i'm impressed by his longevity.  

the lockers weren't unlocked on time today so i had to take my violin to class where non-music majors gave me funny looks as i attempted to tuck my case under my chair.  

then i went to the ladies' room because i just knew there was lip gloss smeared across my face, and i ran into an obstacle because apparently it's "mirror-less monday". i get it. but it's not going to stop me from using my compact as a substitute. and sure enough, lip gloss was on my nose.

my lesson with my violin professor is easily the highlight of my week. his office door is littered with pictures of his old students (i made it up there!) and it smells like coffee and chocolate inside. after some scales, arpeggios, double stops, kreutzer, bach, and mozart, i was thoroughly tired out. 

mondays are my longest days but i don't mind them. if i start my day positively, it doesn't seem so bad. and hey, there's a huge storm coming at the end of the week. yay, rain! this drought we're in could really use it.  

and with that, happy day!
