New Obsession

I have recently acquired a Ukulele. I've been wanting one for a while now, and I finally got one. ^.^
I think it's safe to say I'm hooked. I played for literally about 2 days straight. I've learned 5 or 6 songs already, and I've written one song.
It's a black makala, complete with dolphin! Huzzah!

I think part of the reason I'm enjoying it so much, is because it's coming so easy to me. I play the guitar some, so I'm already used to chording. So this is basically like a mini guitar. But BETTER. hehe.

Music really is an amazing thing, those days when you have anything and everything on your mind, there's always that one song that can relate to you and make you feel better. Or maybe it's not the lyrics, maybe it's not sappy love songs, but music like 'Two Door Cinema club' or 'Kesha' (I'm not judging) Anything that makes you happy. Sometimes it's great to just dance with your friends and forget anything remotely close to a worry.
Plus it's a way to connect with people around you. There's a million more great things about music I could list off, but I'll leave it at that.

In other news, in two weeks I'll be headed to the beach! I am incredibly excited for the ocean, Family, Friends that are basically family, music, and lots of delicious fresh foods! ^.^
