So as I mentioned earlier my
Skullcandy headphones came in the mail a couple days ago, and today I finally bothered enough to find my iPod cable (I haven't updated that thing in at least a year) and am now wandering about the house with this massive furry white thing on my head.
I look like a hip new youngster! Rocking out to hip new music. Maybe Green Day's latest album. ;D
IN ACTUALITY, I am listening to Dvorak, Faure, and Brahms. Yes, I am that geeky. Shut up, I'm in so much love with the cello right now, it's not even funny. Piano is awesome by virtue of inherent soloistic qualities, but nothing the piano does could ever, ever replicate the rich tone of cello strings played well.
(If it's any consolation, Green Day's newest album is currently in the downloading...)
So my dad, upon noticing this new bit of headgear, promptly presented me with a pair of old Sennheiser HD 580s, which are much more comfortable as you can see by virtue of their MASSIVE earphones.
Unfortunately, my dad had an even MASSIVEr head, and he... stretched it. Because it doesn't fit around my head. :( It kind of sits there and doesn't go around my ears all the way, which is fine if I'm in front of the computer, but if I try to walk around it falls off my head. A pity, because the Sennheiser is worth almost 200$ whereas my white fuzzy is only 70$. ++The Senn has better sound quality because, let's face it, you really shouldn't buy headphones just because they are white and fuzzy (headphones are for listening to music
, isn't that right) but hey, it's my money, I earned it myself and I'll spend it as stupidly as I choose to.
(Conclusion - Use Sennheiser for laptop and Skullcandy for iPod...?)
Anyway let us get to the real point of this post:
My phone interrupted me in the middle of the Dvorak Cello Concerto with an invitation to go see Star Trek. I turned it down because I wasn't even halfway through my to-do list of the day (which didn't include instrument practise, either) and I wanted to watch House: Season Finale
with my parents which we had already put off yesterday because they were tired.
Now they aren't going anymore and I feel slightly bad, like I'm responsible (I probably am). The guilt is slight, but it's still there. And the point of this post is really - don't you just hate it when stuff like this happens? It's nobody's fault, but just like. It puts the faintest blotch on an otherwise great (or at least normal) day. On the other hand, I know for a fact that if I had said yes, I would get irreparable unproductivity guilt when I got home, esp. because I'm only lukewarm towards Star Trek. I know it sounds silly but when I plan to practise and then I don't I can feel the lack in my fingers. Which means I'd have to practise after I get back and then I'd have to sleep late again and I'm sick of sleeping late, I kept waking up in the middle of the night last night (OK admittedly that's not related to sleeping late) but TBPH I like to sleep early and wake up early and practise early and be done for the day and uh let's cut this short. Basically I would have felt worse if I'd gone. And right now it really doesn't bother me *that* much but it's still there, a small splotch of imperfection hanging on the edge, just out of sight.
So I kind of wish nothing had ever happened and my day just went on like it was going on and everything was good. And it's making a big deal out of a small deal (srsly I'm gonna forget about it within the hour), but the thought, however small, was still there. And I guess the point of this post was to reflect upon the 无奈 of life sometimes. Which I've had far too much of (haha this is NOTHING compared to stuff I had to choose between junior year) but... sometimes the small things matter more than the large ones?
无奈无奈 what fugly simplified Chinese. I wonder why my pinyin won't work w/trad. anymore.edit:
...I need a tag that says 'music is good for the soul' :Oedit2:
