One of the coolest things to do at work is glue labels inside violins. That is an extremely weird thing for me to say, because on the outside it looks all mundane, boring, nerdy...I don't know. But I like it! You ask me why? Why do I like gluing labels on the inside of violins? I'll tell you-but first, I'll explain the process of gluing in a label.

First, you take the label, put glue on it, and then you put it on this curved metal thing. Then, you take the curved metal thing and put it inside the little holes that are shaped like Fs, making sure you don't get glue all over the outside of your nice new GEII violin. Third, you take another instrument (not a musical instrument) that is maybe something like a straight metal thing and you work the label off metal thing #1 with metal thing #2. Does this make sense? No, I didn't think it would. The last thing you do is take the flat part of metal thing #1 and smooth the label so it doesn't have any bubbles in it or anything.

Ok. Now you know how to put a label inside a violin. The reason why I like doing this is because I'm pretty sure I want to be an orothodontist or a dentist, and this process is kind of like doing things that dentists would do. Actually, one time I was gluing labels and metal thing #1 was actually the little mirror that dentists use to look inside your mouth with! It was so cool! It's like practicing to be a dentist, but I'm practicing on a violin! Wow, I'm really weird. And now you know.

Grin and bear it

There are going to be times in life when you meet someone you don't like. That's inevitable, I guess. But sometimes, at least for me, it's hard to keep what I feel inside and not let it show. Telling how you really feel about these people is probably not the best road to take, however.

I guess this is kind of like saying nice things about people whether your microphone is on or not, but it's more than just saying nice things. Telling people how you feel about others can alter that person's view of you. If you're always saying rude things about people and stuff, everyone will think that you are a mean person. You don't want people to think you're mean if that's not really how you are.

Lately, I have been having a problem with keeping my feelings of others inside me. But I'm trying! Really! It's just hard when that person turns up everywhere I am...but I just think how I would feel if people were saying mean things about me to others. That would make me feel bad. In order to keep people's self confidence up, let's be nice all the time! If you're mad, just...pretend you're not.

My Dream Man

Recently, I have been thinking alot about qualities I want in a future husband. I've been thinking about this because...I just have been. Anyway.

I don't think I'm shallow, but I like guys to be tall. I like tall guys because it's just nice not to be the same height as, or taller than, everyone else. So it's fun to be with people who are taller than you.

I want him to have a sense of humor. Granted, not everything should be funny, but it's nice to laugh and have fun alot, keep things light.

It is important for a guy to have respect for me. I appreciate respect because, hey-girls just deserve respect. When someone respects you, it just makes it that much better and more fun. I personally wouldn't want to be with someone who doesn't respect me. I'm not just talking about the whole opening doors thing, but just respect in general.

Well those are a few qualities that I like in guys. I don't know what else to say...I'm still thinking about this one. And I probably always will be.
