That title didn't sound that good... lol. Well, I'll explain, A few days ago I shared an image on Facebook that said "I have a meaningful relationship with my violin" and though it's entirely true, at the moment I'd say is more like a "... painful relationship...". And why? Well because it is physically painful lol, which is a normal thing at first, so I was told. My body, that is, arms, hands, neck and shoulders, need to adjust to this new posture and I also need do relax a bit more, which is something people don't do at the begining. I keep thinking to myself: "the violin is not going to fall down and the bow is not going to slip through my fingers". My brain knows this but apparently my body is ignoring me.

Apart from the painful thing, it's a lot of fun and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I need lots and lots and lots of practice and as weird as it might sound, I never let a day go by without practicing. Unfortunately, I can't practice as much as I'd like, because of what I wrote above. My teacher told me that as soon as anything starts to hurt or if I get too tense, I should stop immediately, relax for a while and then come back.

I don't think it would be necessary to say this, but I can't wait for next class lol. I sound like a little kid...
