    That's terrible. I'm sorry for your friend and her husband. :(

    Thank you Mayhem. I guess they've known for a year now. She's kept quiet about it, I don't think she wants to accept it just yet. I know he was given six months to live and that was a year ago. I am holding out hope for them.

    Rambling professors who won't shut up. Geez, in Keyboarding class I need to leave the room to go use the bathroom and get a drink of water or something because I can't stand listening to the professor squacking as if we've never used MS Word before. And don't even get me started on my Journalism professor who keeps rambling for 10 minutes after class is over about undercovered news stories that barely have anything to do with class. Can't wait for this semester to end. :rolleyes:

    My band teacher yelled at me (and my clarinet section) today for messing up on a song (He's always neurotic around this time because it's only one week until our winter concert.....then again, he's neurotic every other week. He's also a perfectionist, which is also a big issue.). I, personally as first chair clarinet, felt so embarrassed and upset especially with the pressure being taken on me. I was crying for the following two periods after that's how upset I was. I mean, I love playing clarinet, just as much as piano and singing, and I'm pretty strong at it.......but that moment today just made me question my true ability and dedication as a clarinetist, and my trust in him. Am I trying too hard to impress someone, or am I not trying hard enough? :cry: And my dad found out, too (because he works at my school), and is thinking very hard about pulling me and my sister out of band (If that happens, I still have chorus to fall back on.) but I don't wanna give up playing clarinet. I've come this far and don't wanna give it up now.

    *hugs MissMusical* If you love playing clarinet, keep doing and practicing. Don't let that a bad day bring you down.

    Ok, that's your problem. You SHOULD NOT be playing an instrument to impress ANYONE. You need to be playing it because it is something you enjoy doing...

    And I do enjoy playing clarinet a lot. I've been thinking about the situation for a bit now. And I'm realizing that truth too, now. I love playing clarinet because I enjoy doing it and I've been playing it for years. I just don't like the pressure my band teacher is putting me and my fellow clarinetists on. :(

    Thank you. I too believe that and thank you for the prayers. You can never has to many of those ^.^

    And thank you everyone for your kind words. They mean a lot.

    I agree with Sgt Floyd MissMusical. Play for yourself and yourself only! If you try to impress it takes the fun right out of it! I hope things get better for you!
