It is so goddamn convenient to live literally half a block from the violin shop. I will get it back with a new E string tomorrow~ And they said if the violin that I had from December to June came back in, they would call me so I can exchange. Because I miss that one, it was darker sounding and not brand new and aaaaah I miss it.
there was a post about musical star trek where spock is the one guy who doesn’t understand how everyone is singing and harmonizing but i say no
bones as the one guy who doesn’t understand why everyone is singing and what the hell is this choreography. because i want you to imagine this: bones getting very confused and going to ask spock what the hell is going on and spock turns around and starts singing too
I finally got to rent a violin again…got home to tune it, and promptly snapped the E string. I live literally less than a block from the violin shop, and it’s closed.
I’m so embarrassed, it was a brand new set of strings.
This one is also a brand new violin. It’s still a $1000 violin, but I can tell the difference from this one and the other one I had that was ~60 years old. This one resonates well but sounds bright. The other one was darker and mellower and I wish I’d never had to give it back.
Maybe I’ll warm up to this violin but it’s definitely not the one I would ever purchase.
Need a room in Seattle! Capitol Hill/Belltown/Downtown/Int’l District — basically anywhere south of the U-district.
Hello! I thought I might give advertising this on Tumblr a shot too.
I am having some difficult luck finding an affordable place that will allow me to have my pet chameleon. I have found places that allow cats and dogs but not small, odorless and silent reptiles, which confuses me. He lives in a cage in my room and is physically incapable of getting out. I also like other animals so if you have one that’s fine by me!
So anyway, I am a female in my 20s, and work full-time in west seattle and sometimes Ballard depending on what location they need me at. I do not have a car and do not need parking, but this also means that I have to live in Capitol Hill/Downtown/Belltown/South Lake Union/International district because some mornings I have to be in West Seattle by 6:30 am riding the bus; and anywhere north of that the buses don’t run early enough.
I am a very quiet person and not very chatty usually — if you are looking for a roommate to be your best friend and eat dinner with you every night and talk to you for 2 hours every day, I’m not it, sorry. That being said, I’m not unfriendly, and do enjoy the occasional dinner/activity and light conversation by way of greeting or if we are sharing the kitchen or something. But I mostly keep to myself.
I am a light sleeper — this has been the most difficult part. I cannot wear earplugs due to an ear condition so I’m looking for someone willing to be quiet and use headphones between 11pm and 7am on weekdays. Likewise, I will be respectful of your schedule.
I would get along well with a roommate who’s an introvert, likes animals, and works full-time as a professional or graduate student and is between 25 and 50 (my best roommate so far was 47!)
