Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!
Well… Crystal got a guitar. Nothing really fancy, but a decent enough one I guess. I don’t know a lot about guitars. I’m not as bad as Kita was, thinking the wooden bit was just for decoration, but I don’t know how to play one or anything. At least as far as I know. I’ve never tried.
… I don’t really want to. Try, that is. Who knows what I’ll find out. I didn’t have calluses though when I was found, so… probably not.
But she’s going to get lessons and everything. It’s gonna be a while before she’s good enough to do anything but make dogs howl, but it’s something she really seems to want to do, and, honestly… it kinda fits her. She’s got this goth emo rocker chick vibe to her, and I guess it makes perfect sense that she’d start doing stuff like playing guitar.
But if she can pull it off, more power to her. She needs more stuff to do than think about stuff that happened to her, and maybe she can throw some of her angst into lyrics. Don’t get me wrong – she’s a lot better, but she’s still the “wild child” of the group.
I think I draw the line as being in one myself, though. That’d just be a pain.
It was a Wednesday today, I suppose. Nothing really earth shattering happened today. The usual… went to classes, etc. But the weather was really nice again. All the kids are out playing at night again. Some people seem to hate the squealing of playing children, but I like it. It’s kind of an “everything’s alright in the world” kind of sound. Like train horns in the distance. I almost wish I could play with them, but… it doesn’t work that way, does it?
Sigh. Sometimes I wish I could remember what it was like to play.
Happy thoughts… happy thoughts…
Yuki and Liz are over tonight. The three of us are actually the most musically experienced of us all, including the parents, so we’re trying to figure out what to do with our new “live music venue”. It’s harder than it sounds. Yuki says she always had managers and a whole production crew behind her… being just her is a little scary. But in a fun kind of way.
It must be so weird. Some people are always trying to break out, to make it big, to become famous and well-known. Yuki did all that, hated it, and now she’s just going to be a two-bit idol in a two-bit venue in a two-bit American city… and I don’t think she could be happier about that. Life is weird.
And it’s even weirder how Yuki defers to me about musical stuff. She’s got a lot more performance experience and knows what it’s like to be famous, but she says of the two of us, I’m the better and more experienced musician. She even calls me “senpai” sometimes. OMG that is so weird. But… cool. It’s actually pretty cool. I’ve got an idol friend who thinks I’m a senpai.
Sabby’s working on some of those Japanese treats. Baker seems a little resistant, but she just likes baking, so she’ll come around. Plus she gets to keep baking all the stuff she likes to bake. It’s just something she’s not used to – mochi, etc., is a little different to make than western treats.
Jack and I are going out tomorrow. He’s been really studying. I didn’t know he had it in him. But hey, that’s what we’ve all been bugging him about, right? I should think of a reward to give him. Ummm… BLUSH…
Love you all!!! ❤️
