Friendship Report: Teaching and High Hopes


Dear Readers,

A lot of people tend to look upon teachers and think "Ugh. A Monkey could do their job." Or at least, that's how it is where I live. Anyway I've had my hands full with teaching guitar this week, and I've come to realise that when you are trying to teach, even the simplest thing gets on your nerves, and chances are when you get told off by your teachers for "Totes not doing anythin'" chances are you actually were doing something really infuriating.


So about my teaching experience, it has actually been quite enjoyable, but it can get really annoying when I'm trying to explain something and then I get an extremely loud Em chord from the 100 watt Trace Elliot bass amp I have set up behind me. I have nothing against the Em chord itself, but there are many chords I prefer: such as E7#9.

Anyway the main point is when I was trying to explain a simple piece of musical theory to Ash that would help him with his composing, he gives out a very loud, and rude, Em chord. Technically he was doing what I had asked, but it was at the wrong time, I hadn't finished explaining my point and he just ran off ahead before hearing what else I had to say.

It was easy enough to deal with, I muted his strings, told him "no," and then continued. Moral of the story don't be rude to your teacher, especially not when it's your mate who is teaching you something for free.

Onto the other little story of the week, which I'm going to cut short and leave void of the majority of detail. I was introduced to a rather attractive female shortly after my last post, I was hoping to meet up with her tomorrow, and hopefully make her my Special Somepony, unfortunately someone else beat me to it. As you can imagine it was a real bummer, and I felt a bit down, but I guess that was my fault for having such high hopes, So moral of that story: just because you have taken a liking to someone, doesn't necessarily mean that you'll get anywhere with them, so don't raise your hopes too high else you could end up quite disappointed.

Anyway until next week: here's something to ponder: 00111000 01001011 01011111 01001101 01001111 01000100 01000011 00111001 01001110 01001011 01000000 01010110 00100111 01000000 01101001 01000001 01010100 01101000 01010111 00101101 01001000 00100011 01001001 01100111 01001010 01000000 00111010 01001111 01000100 00100101 01000000 00111011 01001011 01100010 00101010 00101011 01000101 01010110 01011000 00110100 01000100 01001011 01000010 01010111 00100110 01000110 01000011 01100101 01110101 00101010 01000110 01000100 00101100 01000010 00110000 00101011 00111111 01000011 01110001 01101111 00111000 00110111 00111111 01011011 01010001 00101011 01000011 01010001 01000011 00110001 01000010 01101011 00001101 00001010 00101000 01011101 01110011 01000001 00110111 00111001 01100001 00101011 00110011 01011011 01101011
