First I would like to thank who ever it was who said a prayer for my situation Friday afternoon a friend popped up unannounced,he has wanted to get into airbrushing for a while of course first I asked if he would be interested in violin as I have a nice Mendini for salebananaO.K. I wouldn't do that but in the end sold him my back up airbrushing kit.

This all happened just minutes before I was going to call over to the collage and hand in the towel on my lessons,this must have been a sign that I need to stick with learning this instrument and I would not be happy if I had to give this up its been a dream for me for a while I know its not easy but I want to learn and I'm going to thank all of you for the encouragement it means a lot.

In the end I've called Gliga and ordered a Gems 2 which will be here shortly I have been able to hear these played they sound good I've heard good things about them as far as the other I failed to mention that I'd had it looked over and readjusted and still just limited results I'm going to try one more thing and if it works well I can always get a case for it and a bow and give it to a child who wants to learn violin but can't afford one.

P.S. happy St.Patric's day you all have to wear green but I'm immune I don't even have to drink green beer its my birthdaycoffeeviolin-student

Sorry if I sounded harsh in my earlier post but I felt that it was way too early for you to be thinking of giving up. 

If there is ever anything that I can do to help just let me know violin-student
